0 Introduction

Anxiety can be a debilitating disorder, often associated with excessive worry, fear,
isolation, depression, substance abuse, suicidal ideation, and other forms of psychopathology
(Bellini,2004). Everyone feels anxious now and then. It is a normal emotion. (Hurley,2017) They may
feel nervous when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or before making an important
decision. Anxiety disorders are different, though. They are a group of mental illnesses, and the distress
they cause can keep a person from carrying on with your life normally. For people who have one, worry
and fear are constant and overwhelming, and can be disabling. But with treatment, many people can
manage those feelings and get back to a fulfilling life. All teens experience some amount of anxiety
at times. Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress, and sometimes it helps teens deal with tense or
overwhelming situations. For many teens, things like public speaking, final exams, important
athletic competitions, or even going out on a date can cause feelings of apprehension and
uneasiness. They may also experience an increase in heartbeat or excessive sweating. That is how
the brain responds to anxious feelings. For some teens, however, anxiety can go beyond these
typical symptoms to negatively affect friendships and family relationships, participation in
extracurricular activities, and even their schoolwork. When feelings of anxiety interfere with
normal daily living, the presence of an anxiety disorder should be considered. According to the
National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 25% of 13- to 18-year-olds have an anxiety
disorder, and just under 6% have a severe anxiety disorder.

Dating someone with anxiety issues or an anxiety disorder can be horribly stressful.
Sometimes it can feel like the anxiety is a third person in the relationship, someone who wriggles in
between partner. This person constantly sows doubt and confusion (Joseph Rauch, 2017. In the
Philippines, one in five people suffers from a mental health problem. In a country with a population
of 100 million, there are presently only 700 psychiatrists and a thousand psychiatric nurses.
Between 17 to 20 percent of Filipino adults experience psychiatric disorders, while 10 to 15 percent
of Filipino children, aged 5 to 15, suffer from mental health problems. A 2010 national census that
found 1.4 million people with identified disabilities showed that mental disability accounts for 14
percent of all disabilities. In the same NSO study, 88 cases of mental health problems were reported
for every 100,000 Filipinos (Magtubo, 2016). Sometimes your partner doesn’t want to tell about
their anxiety, they are scared because they may lose their partner if they tell them that they have
anxiety. (Rauch, 2017) Whether they ask or deduce it after months of dating, there will be a point
when a partner discloses they deal with anxiety. It’s a crucial moment in the relationship, so be
sensitive and do not judge. Let them trust a person with this information that they have , they are most
likely not shared with their relatives or friends. See it as the beginning of a discussion they can resurface
occasionally. (Meek, 2019) Excessive anxiety can lead to inappropriate suspiciousness or paranoia.
For instance, in a partner relationship, suspiciousness may manifest as concern that a partner is not
faithful or does not love or care for their partner as much as you do. In friendships, they may be
suspicious that a friend is leaving, out of activities or talking badly, they are stabbing their friends
in the back. People with GAD and overly dependent relationships may also develop excessive
anger, acting out in ways that are destructive to their relationships. A partner or a friend may find
this disruptive, and it can weaken their ability to trust a person with an anxiety.

The researchers aim to measure the anxiety level of an individual that has an anxiety with
and without a relationship. The researches want to know if they can manage their anxiety with
themselves or with their relationship partner.

This is significant to the individuals who have an anxiety disorder on how they can manage
themselves as a person and a friend. This is also significant to the students who have an anxiety
with and without a relationship, this study will help them to entrust their partner or their friends to
tell them about their disorder. It is significant to the school for this study to be added with the same
research as ours, the researchers, so that the future researcher that will conduct the same topic will
have some information with this study.

1.1 Review of Related Literature

It is critical to realize that when someone is anxious, talking at them can increase their
anxiety and behaviors. More visual, less verbal is a good rule of thumb. Both home and school
could have small white boards available that can be used to write simple and concrete messages to
the individual, such as, they are safe, no one will hurt them or take slow deep breaths instead of
merely talking to the person. The written message is there for them to see as they need it. Often,
teachers and parents can exacerbate an anxious moment by pushing too hard for immediate relaxing
of the body or verbal responses from the student. Be quiet, reassuring, nonconfrontational, and
calm each time they are needed to support an anxious student. Remember that the individual is not
thinking clearly, and a person who comfort will have to become their rational, calm support (David,
2012). It is said here that an individual that has an anxiety can be worried a lot of things, even the
simple ones, if someone is going to talk to an individual with an anxiety, she or he must remain
calm when talking to them. According to Page (2009) That means that you might sit near them, not
demand any eye contact, be genuine in your caring and reflect that caring in your vocal tone and
pace. Be sure to allow for processing time and when appropriate use a bit of humor to ease the
pain. Be in an appropriate way when talking to someone, you must humor the person you’re talking
to or you can trigger their anxiety.

Anxiety doesn’t have to break a relationship or put a strain on it to the point where it’s hard to
enjoy. By understanding anxiety in general and how it affects both partners relationship, you can love
each other more deeply and connect in a new way. Educating yourself can also relieve a lot of the
stress (Rauch, 2017). It doesn’t have to end the relationship between both partner if either one has
anxiety, if an individual is feeling a little irritated, they must remain calm and talk to their partner and
try to sympathy them. (Smith, 2019), Pursuing a romantic relationship can sometimes feel like a
dangerous game. Dating requires a certain amount of vulnerability, and it comes with the risk of
getting hurt or being disappointed. Because of the uncertain outcome, people can experience a fair
amount of anxiety about their current romantic relationship or the hurdles of pursuing a new one. -
It is hard to find the right partner; they have to wait a little longer for them to see them.
(Kinsman,2016) the act of throwing a deep, dark fear into the spotlight and spinning it out to its
worst possible outcome can have the effect of neutralizing it. And for the love of all that is holy,
don’t make fun of them for it. Let them be the one to point out how silly it sounds out loud, or you
might run the risk of them clamming up and feeling like they have something new to fret about. Do
not say something that may trigger their anxiety, say something funny. (Hunt, 2016) Normalizing
anxiety disorders and using the word "anxiety" as an adjective is not okay. Everyone gets worried
at times. Everyone gets stressed out. However, mundane worries that don't confine you to your bed
and stress are not equivalents to anxiety. Stress over schoolwork does not constitute as anxiety. My
anxiety disorder is something I am going to have to live and cope with my entire life; it will never
disappear. So please, stop with this "trend" of having anxiety...it really is not cool. My anxiety
disorder is not a joke. Anxiety is one of the most common mental disorder and if not taken care of
it can cause effects to the individual who has it. If a person wants to talk about it they must avoid
putting it into a joke.

The duration of an anxious feeling can sometimes be out of proportion to the original
trigger, or stressor. Physical symptoms, such as increased blood pressure and nausea, may also
develop. These responses move beyond anxiety into an anxiety disorder. (Felman, 2018).
Symptoms can be restlessness, uncontrollable feelings, feeling irritated always, hard to focus, and
sleeping deprivation. Person with an anxiety that have this incontrollable feeling they could be
irritated, worried and sometimes they could lose focus. Anxiety can be treated except for severe or
long-term anxiety disorders. There are some exercises or actions to help the person to cope with
their anxiety.

1.3 Variable Discussion

The study is about the correlation of an individual with an anxiety with and without a
relationship. (Felman, 2018) Anxiety has causes like environmental factors, genetics, medical
factors, brain chemistry, and use of or withdrawal from an illicit substance. Sometimes, stressful
events occur as the result of a third party, such as an employer or partner, but anxious feelings
might emerge from people telling themselves the worst will happen. An anxiety disorder may
develop without any external stimuli whatsoever. Disproportionate anxiety can result from a
combination of one or more of the above causes.

Anxiety causes fear or worry that can make you less aware of your true needs in a given
moment. It can also make you less attuned to the needs of your partner. When you feel
overwhelmed, your partner may feel as though you aren’t present. Someone who tends to be
anxious may have trouble expressing his or her true feelings. It also may be difficult to keep
reasonable boundaries by asking for the attention or space that is needed. Since experiencing
anxiety is uncomfortable, subconsciously you may try to postpone the experience of it. On the other
hand, anxiety can cause you to believe that something must be talked about immediately, when in
fact a short break may be beneficial. (Tye, 2015)

1.4 Statement of the Problem

The researchers want to know what causes the participant’s anxiety, how they can cope
their anxiety.

1. What are the levels of anxiety of individuals with a relationship?

2. What are the levels of anxiety of individuals without a relationship?

3. Is there a significant relationship among an individuals that has an anxiety with a


relationship and without a relationship

1.5 Hypothesis

H0: There is no significant between the anxiety levels of individuals that have relationship and no
relationship
2.0 Methodology

2.1 Research Design

The researchers will be use Quantitative research approach, the aim of quantitative is to
know the relationship of one variable to another variable. Earl R. Barbie 2010, Quantitative
methods emphasize objective measurements and the statistical, mathematical, or numerical analysis
of data collected through polls, questionnaires, and surveys, or by manipulating pre-existing
statistical data using computational techniques. Non-experimental will use to measure the sample
using survey research. According to Salkind (2010), Non-experimental designs include research
designs in which an experimenter simply either describes a group or examines relationships
between preexisting groups. This design will be use in anxiety level of Senior High School student
both relationship and without.

2.2 Research Locale

The participants for the study will be coming from the Our Lady of Fatima University in
Valenzuela. The researchers chose this as a research locale for it is more convenient and more
suitable for conducting this research. The study is about the individuals that has an anxiety with
and without a relationship. Since the university accommodates high school, we will be choosing
our participants in the senior high school students.

2.3 Population and Sampling

The researchers will use Non-Probability Sampling Technique according to Stephanie


(2015) Non-probability sampling is a sampling technique where the odds of any member being
selected for a sample cannot be calculated. It’s the opposite of probability sampling, where
you can calculate the odds. In addition, probability sampling involves random selection, while non-
probability sampling does not–it relies on the subjective judgement of the researcher. Convenience
Sampling (also called availability sampling) is a non-probability/non-random sampling technique
used to create sample as per ease of access, readiness to be a part of the sample, availability at a
given time slot or any other practical specifications of a particular element. The researcher chooses
members merely on the basis of proximity and doesn’t consider whether they represent the entire
population or not. Using this technique, they can observe habits, opinions, and viewpoints in the
easiest possible manner. (Bhat, 2019). The researchers chose 100 participants, (50) males and (50)
females, each gender we will have (25) with a relationship and (25) without a relationship. The
participants must be willing and inclined to answer a ready questionnaire from the researchers.

2.4 Research Instrument

The researchers prepared an informed consent and provide a questionnaire that included a
content of any signs of anxiety or being worried or if the participants has a relationship or without.
Particularly, according to McLeod (2019) Questionnaires provide a relatively cheap, quick and
efficient way of obtaining large amounts of information from a large sample of people. Data can
be collected relatively quickly because the researcher would not need to be present when the
questionnaires were completed, this questionnaire will be the based on how the participants with
or without relationship can affect their behavior disorder like anxiety and the participant's score
will be the outcome of how anxiety can generate the participants life. The researchers will measure
the severity of anxiety of the sample that has a relationship and a no relationship samples.

2.5 Data Collection

In collecting the necessary data, the researchers will use the convenience sampling
technique under non-probability sampling. Convenience sampling is a non-probability sampling
technique where subjects are selected because of their convenient accessibility and proximity to
the researcher (Explorable, 2009). The researchers will be using questionnaire. The researchers will
be able to collect the data with 100 respondents within the population.2.6 Research Ethics

As the researchers proceed, the researchers will be discussing the study to the participants
for them to be oriented about the questionnaire that they will be answering. The researchers will
provide an informed consent for the questionnaire is not just have been conducted. The researchers
will guide the participants if they have any questions regarding the questions. This study can be
uncomfortable for some participants who have this mental disorder. In that reason, their answers
will be confidential.
2.6 Research Ethics
As the researchers proceed, the assigned researcher introduced themselves to the
participant and discuss the methods and general direction of the survey questionnaire that has been
conducted. Every participant will be given a questionnaire that outlines the purpose of the study.
Since the research will involve participants commencing with a door to door survey. Participants
were asked to answer the question without fabrication and falsifying of data and to promote the
pursuit of knowledge and truth which the primary goal of the research, anything that the respondent
disclosed regarding information would be treated anonymously. The integrity and reliability and
validity of the research finding rely on heavily on adherence to ethical principles.

2.7 Data Analysis

According to Robson (2011), a quantitative research requires the researchers to turn raw
numbers into meaningful data through the application of rational and critical thinking. The
researchers will start analyzing data by putting the data gathered in a computer software. The
obtained information is in numerical form, hence statistics will be used to analyze the data.
According to Will Kenton (2019), a t-test is a type a inferential statistic used to determine if there
is no significance difference between the two variables or group. This research will allow us to
compare the two groups to determine if they came from the same population which is the
individuals that has an anxiety with and without a relationship.
