Status Anxiety: Causes, Effects, and Solutions

Status anxiety is a major problem in today’s society. It is caused by social inequality and the low social status of many people. It leads to lovelessness, expectations, and dependence on others. It also affects ego functioning and social achievement.

The solutions to status anxiety are to change the way we think about success, to value other things besides success, and to create more egalitarian societies. These solutions require individual and societal changes.
