The high achiever is often seen as the strong one. Someone who is driven, independent, a perfectionist and who doesn't let others down. But, there can be a hidden side to this.

A hidden struggle driven by fear and anxiety.

If you are seen as the strong one, over-think things, hold yourself to very high standards and fear letting others down, you may have at times felt on the edge of burnout.

It may be that others aren't aware of the inner-struggle that could be driven by fear and anxiety.
