It's not a secret that I suffer from anxiety. I share it openly in hopes to heal myself as well as inspire others, even though there is a stigma attached to it. Yes, it can be ugly, but it's me and what I have to deal with.
I turn to art as a way to help me cope, to help keep my mind quiet. Even with art I still find myself battling illogical thought patterns. My biggest issue seems to be procrastination. I don't do something and therefore feel bad, because of that I still don't do it and feel worse. The anxiety builds up more and more each time I think about it, which holds me back from completing it. It's a vicious cycle that I have been struggling with for years and in many cases has paralyzed me.
