Anxiety often clouds the brain with false stories such as, “you’re not good enough,” “that mistake will haunt you forever” and “your worst fear is coming true.”
The mental health condition, which affects an estimated 40 million American adults, is notorious for creating excessive stress, worry and rumination ― sometimes for no reason at all. It’s also accompanied by painful physical symptoms, like headaches and stomach problems. And if all of that wasn’t enough, there’s a negative stereotype attached to the condition (which often prevents those who have it from seeking treatment).
In summary? Anxiety really sucks. That’s where these encouraging comics by Tumblr user The Latest Kate come in. They’re the perfect reminder that the surmounting stress in your mind is one big fat liar and you’re not alone in your fight against it.
