We all live in a time of outside pressure and stress. Starting from childhood, moving through adolescence and maintaining its course through our entire adulthood, the fight that each of us needs to fight is not in a war with nuclear weapons, but in our mind with our feelings. The Anxiety Diary is the diary of a brave warrior that has the courage to express himself, not only for that oh-so-desired relief, but also in the purpose of helping other fellow warriors.
When talking about anxiety issues, depression and so forth, many would say that there is nothing wrong with the person in discussion, that they’re just bored, lazy or spoiled. How come people from poor, third world countries can live with themselves just fine and don’t constantly complain about their feelings and moods? Why can’t we, the so-called privileged, suck it up, deal with it and stop spending thousands on psychiatrists? Well, the explanation is simple. Because we don’t have to worry about money for bread and shoes or about whether or not it’s safe to talk freely, we now have more time to take care of ourselves. Mind and body. We are the generation that can try to heal themselves instead of struggling to heal an oppressive system.
The Anxiety Diary is a mirror into our generation and our fight, it’s the journey of a creative man who wants to discover and heal himself. A journey many can identify with, a journey that deserves our immediate attention.
