I started this blog with the intention of documenting my journey with anxiety. Since I was a small child, I was branded ‘shy’. My parents saw me as a timid, quiet, unsmiling child and this ‘character flaw’ followed me through to adulthood in the form of anxiety.
I think the mounting pressures of today’s digital society exacerbate the anxious mind tenth-fold. We panic over the need to be present – to procure online interaction, and be seen in the eyes of others. In addition, the ability to do everything behind a screen, within the click of a button, has also allowed those living with anxiety to stay further distanced from society.
I think navigating a world as publicised, and in many ways, highly disconnected, as this one can be tiresome. Therefore, my ultimate goal is to write content that will help those, like myself, to manage anxiety and mental illness in general, so that our best selves can prevail.
