Commonly Confused: Eager versus Anxious

Eager means you’re really want to do something.

Anxious connotes nervousness. 

I’m not anxious to get back to work. I’m eager to get back to work on my book.

I’m anxious that the revisions are going slowly.

I have made this mistake in the past because anxious was often used as a synonym for eager where I grew up. Come to think of it, the way we talked suggested to outsiders that we were all can do and can’t wait people. Instead, we were trembling, all nerves and rage. Some things I can’t do and I often wait.

Ah, childhood. So much like adulthood.
