An Anxious Comedian Attempts to Talk about It


Being anxious is awful. And one of the worst parts is being too afraid to even talk about it.

Sometimes this reluctance is due to fear of judgment. It’s easy to imagine that others will think less of me if I am honest with them about it.

Sometimes it’s a more nameless fear. I know it’s not rational, but it can feel as if the simple act of talking about anxiety — of acknowledging its existence — might somehow make it stronger. Even sharing with a close friend can feel next to impossible.

  1. I do appreciate people who are willing to talk about their anxieties, precisely for that reason: Nothing is more scary. Being honest without knowing how people will react, is terrifying. Rational or not, it simply is. You writing this is a step in the right direction!
