a wave of anxiety
How do you describe the feeling of anxiety? Like this. In November, I was fired from a well-paying tech job. The transition stirred up more than a few moments of stress, as I figured out the next steps for my life.
One afternoon, I had a wave of anxiety present itself to me. Rather than get overwhelmed, it seemed to ask: “Well, what are you going to do with me?”
“Paint you.” I responded.
When the piece was complete, I found the storm to have passed peacefully.
