    Neurotic, a favorite word of psychologists, is a term that can lead to some confusion. From a Self-Coaching perspective neurotic worry-anxiety is based on insecurity-driven, emotional “fictions” rather than on objective facts. 
    ● Neurotic worry-anxiety is exaggerated, ruminative, and disproportionate to a real or imagined threat (the “what-ifs,” etc.). 
    ● “Normal,” non-insecurity driven worry-anxiety is a proportionate reaction to a factual threat (impending surgery, loss of a job, upcoming blizzard, etc.).
