I had plans to write about something different today. I even started on the post where I talk about my career change, moving to Canada, and how all that led me to web development, but I'm feeling a little anxious, and my first advice to destress is to - PUT IT OUT THERE! -.
Anxiety feeds on itself, and other thoughts. The more we let it locked inside our heads, the faster and bigger it grows. So, PUT IT OUT THERE! Either on a post here on dev.to, over the phone with a friend, or however you feel comfortable doing it.
For me, in particular, I rather seek guidance, advice or a kind response in people I don't really know that well, over family or close friends. You may find that weird, but that's the only way I don't feel judge. When I'm anxious, the sightless condescending tone puts me in defensive mode. Especially if it's from a person I love or care. To my relief, I don't feel the same about co-works or I would be F****. hahaha!
Se I'm even laughing by the end. Feeling lighter already! Thank you, whoever you are!
I saw the link for this post on Twitter and that's what motived me to right
