Anxiety ripples

August 7, 2018


Watching the raindrops creating tiny waves in this puddle, I realise this is how anxiety feels. Small and seemingly innocuous events, words, people’s actions or emails that I am not in control of increase until it feels as if I am in a rainstorm – the mind rippling out and out so that I cannot smooth the surface. I am beginning to wonder if our general growing acknowledgment of anxiety is to do with the huge number of ‘tiny events’ we all have to cope with these days. It’s not the big dramas – we know how to deal with that, it’s more the barrage of small things that hit our emotional lives daily, each one causing tiny ripples to circle out through our psyches, quietly colliding with each other, jostling for focus.
