“I’m fine.”

“Really? I never would have thought you’re struggling with such anxiety.”

“Wow, I never would have thought you were depressed.”

“But you could have talked to me!”

“Oh, why didn’t you tell me?”

Anyone else can relate? What masks have you been putting on lately?


I believe in times like this, I’m not the only one. Some people are better at controlling it. Some people are worse off. Some people I know, are like a rock. They’re championing this and managed to ignore the anxiety. Or, even better, they’re defeating it. Unfortunately, that is just not me right now.
