Anxiety: a photographic journey 

Hey everyone! 

I hope all is well, just a quick update before I get into this post, the new job is going great! I absolutely love being an editor of a growing furnishing publication. Be sure to check out www.furnishinginternational.com when you get the chance and follow us on Facebook and Instagram. 

The crystal healing course is also going well! I’m very happy with my results this far and I’m excited to continue with the course and to eventually be able to practice on my own clients! 🙂 

I wanted to take the time to share a body of work by 23 year old photography student, Katie Joy Crawford. This post was originally shared on BuzzFeed so be sure to check it out here

Katie has shared in photos what it feels like to have anxiety. Pictures speak a thousand words and these ones certainly do that and more! Those who understand what anxiety feels like, this will hit you right within your soul. Those who don’t, you will gain some insight into the world of anxiety so perhaps this will make you more empathetic when you hear about it. 

As someone who has anxiety, and as someone who has studied photojournalism and media, I could relate these images on multiple levels. 

Feeling like you’re suffocating

Being stuck in your own head

Feeling stuck in your life

Feeling paralyzed to act

Draining oscillation between depression and anxiety

Feeling trapped

I hope you can appreciate these photos in the same way as I did. 
Love & light,

X Cat.
