Anxiety is a ruthless b*tch. You might be having a jolly good day — hell, there might even be a pep in your step — but all it takes is that one creeping feeling brought on by any seemingly menial task and your whole world is now fraught with nervousness.
Maybe it’s your day to present in front of the class. Maybe your mom is making you call the pizza place tonight. Or maybe it’s something as normal as driving to work that makes you sweat bullets. You’re not alone in your feelings, though. If you ask enough people — you’re sure to find at least seventeen others who dread listening to their voicemails just as much as you do.
And does anyone really LIKE going to the hairdresser?! I mean, it’s basically 30 minutes to an hour and a half of small talk and awkward silences and staring off into the abyss that is your face in the mirror. Oh, the things we do to fix our split ends.
