Some of my comics change as I draw them. This was one of them – and I ended up drawing two aspects of anxiety and depression in.

Depression can have us think the worst of ourselves, and anxiety has us think the worst about situations. It’s a double whammy, and can cause many disruptions and compounded fears.

To the point that it can become self fulfilling – in our struggle, we can forget small details that trip us up, and make us feel like we were justified to feel like we’ll screw up. Even though the mistake is possibly a small one anyone could have made.

So let’s be gentler on ourselves. Or at least try to be, fellow humans.
