Being worry is not a bad thing though. It means someone needs to be more careful to do something properly, but being over worry, then being overwhelmed by, and finally being enslaved by it is a whole different story.

"Science shows that early exposure to circumstances that produce persistent #fear and chronic #anxiety can have lifelong consequences by disrupting the developing architecture of the brain."

[National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, 2010]
"While some of these experiences are one-time events and others may reoccur or persist over time, all of them have the potential to affect how children learn, solve problems, and relate to others."
This is a topic worthy of discussion. Consider WEF's rapidly accelerating consolidation of global power. In Jan 2019 WEF exploited the climate crisis by deliberately inciting #fear - in tandem with partners & media. Today it exploits the COVID-19 pandemic.

- Why are you doing #frontend projects?
- To practice #webdev
- Okay, why do you practice web dev?
- To land a dev position in a #tech company or startup
- Why do you need to land a dev position?
- I see. I want to secure my family's future.

🧵to remind you of the reasons:
One day, everyone who is going through the path of becoming #developer, experience this unsureness.

We feel unmotivated, tired, and somehow #anxious.

We may feel afraid of a lot of requirements out there to get a job.

We may have trouble in our personal life.
Honestly, there may be a lot of reasons for us to experience the decline.

There are many recommendations people give in that case:
- Take a break for a few days
- Change the location: e.g. get from home to a coffee shop (like Starbucks) and practice there
- Find a coding partner

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.

Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.

Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

Q: What can I do to help with my anxiety? Is it me or is everyone having a hard time right now?
A: It is normal to feel #anxious in our current reality. The important things: Maintain routine, make sure you sleep, keep up with social relationships, unplug from the news (its OK!)
Focus on one small #positive thing every day. If you need help now, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, 1-800-273-TALK.

"What's wrong with this BS?"

If you are #depressed, you are living in the past
If you are #anxious, you are living in the future
If you are at peace, you are living in the present
- Lao Tzu

WRONG! But good for teaching.

This is intended to be educational re: depression & anxiety. It mentions concepts that can be difficult to read about suicide, trauma, and depression. If you're not in a place to read it now, come back later :)

A psych mini-tweetorial and a bit more #philosophy, but this is important in #medicine and #psychiatry.

Ultimately, I hope it'll be obvious that this quote is simplifying, stigmatizing, and harmful. It's classic pseudo-profound bullshit.
