Snapshots of the conversations that are had between anxiety and I: the things we fight over, the discussions and debates we take part in and the struggle to reason with irrationality. Some of these are based on past events or reoccurring battles, some on more recent occasions, and some are simply extrapolations of experiences I’ve had.
Anxiety: There’s someone following us.
Me: I mean, he’s not following us, he just happens to be walking in the same direction.
Anxiety: Yeah, behind us.
Me: …what do you expect, everyone to be walking ahead of us?!
Anxiety: No, of course not! Just not this close behind us.
Me: That’s not really his fault though, is it?
