The reason is that of the Anxiety Disorder you have. People with Anxiety Disorder are more aware of the danger lurking around them.
They are more cautious and tend to pick up any negative sign which might give an inkling of trouble.
In a study published in the European Journal of Psychology, it was found that people who had a higher level of anxiety were the ones to receive any sign or signal of danger and were the first ones to react to them. So, this, in fact, is actually good for you and having you around keep your peers safe.

(3) It guides you in understanding the vibrations of others:
Last year, your friend introduced you to her fiance and you were absolutely not comfortable with him.
Your friend could clearly see that and even though she knows that you can sense the energy of others, she with her blind love accused you of being too anxious.
Later on, you were the one to be there with her when she found him cheating on her while draining most of her savings on the excuse of sustaining his business.
People with anxiety disorders can understand the vibrations of the people around them. They can easily identify the positive and negative frequencies and can become aware of the intentions of these people.
(4) It makes you empathetic:
You are the most empathetic one of the lot, and just not only concerned about yourself but also concerned about the lives of others around you.
You can understand exactly what a person is going through and you are ready to help them out. In you, people find not just a friend in need but a stranger-in-need too.
(5) It actually increases your IQ:
You have a situation and you are extremely anxious about it. You analyze it and figure out all the possible outcomes and since you are anxious, you will be the one to figure out possibilities that others can’t.
