worried / concerned / anxious / nervous / excited
Worried is a common word that describes how you feel when you are thinking about a problem or something bad that might happen: Where have you been? I was worried about you.
Concerned is usually used when you are talking about a problem that affects another person, society, the world, etc: She's very concerned about the environment. + Police are concerned for the boy's safety.
Anxious describes a stronger feeling and is more formal: We were anxious about the children's safety. It can also describe a person who always worries a lot:
a very anxious parent. You can say that you are anxious to do sth when you want something very much, but do not use it when you are talking about something pleasant that you are looking forward to:
I am anxious to find out what's happened. + I'm very anxious about your arrival.
Nervous suggests that you are also frightened and it is used to describe how you feel before you do something very important such as a concert performance, an interview, etc., or something unpleasant. It can describe a person who is often worried and frightened: a thin, nervous girl.
Excited is nearly always used to describe a positive, happy feeling, especially when you are looking forward to something pleasant: I'm getting very excited about my trip to Australia.
If you want to talk about a person who quickly gets too enthusiastic and excited about things, you can use the word excitable, not 'nervous': She is very kind and friendly, but a bit excitable.
