Eager or Anxious

rogersgeorge on April 22nd, 2017

Here’s a pair of words that a lot of people get wrong. First, the comic (he gets it wrong).

Both anxious and eager refer to anticipating something in the future, but they are different in an important way:

Eager means looking forward to something with pleasure

Anxious means looking forward to something with fear.

I’m eager for you all to get this right, but I’m a little anxious that not everyone will.
