The Anxiety Police

This part right here is what i call making a “normal face” it helps prevent my anxiety from blooming into a full anxiety attack which is harder to bring under control,

“How do I explain that the calm facade has taken me years to master. That it’s the only thing stopping a public display of anxiety, which for me is actually harmful. For me, publicly expressing my anxiety creates a positive feedback loop of making me more and more anxious, often to the brink of panic attacks.

I don’t express my anxiety outwardly because it breeds more anxiety within me.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
