Excitement Anxiety

Do you know the feeling you get, when you have something amazing coming up, but somehow you’re sure that something awful will happen? Well I do. It’s a feeling that comes up quite regularly. Everytime I’m super excited about something, I am absolutely sure, that either I or some cosmic energy will fuck it up.

I told my friend Prudence about it and she knew exactly what I was talking about. She called it “Excitement Anxiety” – which is perfect. The weirdest thing about it is, that nothing awful ever happens. It’s just the feeling that it could. And I start imagining all kinds of scenarios of how this could go wrong. But in the end it never does. So why worry in the first place? I have no idea why my head is doing this. It’s totally crazy and makes no sense at all.

Well Prudence made this awesome comic about it:

Are you a worrier too? Tell me your ways to deal with it in the comments or on Facebook.
