Coming to Terms with Unreality
When I was 14 years old, I entered my freshman year of high school feeling nothing but a dull sense of disquietude. I was not happy to be starting the new school year. I was always “the quiet kid”, and that label only rang truer over time, as I retreated further into my shell with each passing school year. I had few friends, and the ones I had were fair-weather, frequently passing up hanging out with me in favor of others. I knew in the back of my mind that I should feel stressed or upset when the year began, but I just felt empty.  My late childhood and early adolescence, meant to be a time of growth and ...

Forget everything you thought you knew about anxiety and perfectionism. Here’s an inside look at what actually works. We all feel the need to be accepted, to fit in, feel loved, and that we matter to someone or something.  As someone who struggles with anxiety myself, I understand how hard it is to combat the anxiety feedback loop.

One thing I shared with my wife Rachel about a year into our relationship was the time I suffered a nervous breakdown in graduate school. It would be an important moment in any relationship because I shared the time in my life when I was most vulnerable and at my weakest point. Did I technically suffer a nervous breakdown? I’m not sure, all I remember is the turning point came when I drove home late one night, collapsed on my kitchen floor and started crying uncontrollably. Up to that point, I had developed a quasi-schizophrenic outlook on life and could no longer bear the weight of the world-view I constructed. In p...
