Theme 62: Anxiety
Artwork by: Evelin Bundur
Imagine for a second that you have to write an email that goes out to 200,000 people. You spend all week on it, making sure there are no typos or broken links. You schedule the email.
You walk into the office and the first thing you hear is, "The most important link is broken." It's too late, the email is registered by the servers; it's now a beam of light carrying information through fiber glass under our oceans.
Imagine that feeling of failure—sweaty palms, concerned looks by colleagues, heart rate thumping.
Or better yet, what if you stopped imagining?
Anxiety is a story that we tell ourselves; it's a magnification of possible failures paired with self-talk that undermines our chances of success. Anxiety is created from within, not outside. Self-sabotage may always be part of the creative process and the sooner we can accept that the clearer we can be in the decision we need to make to move forward.
This month's global exploration of Anxiety was chosen by our Bucharest chapter and illustrated by Evelin Bundur.
