Sometimes the darkness creeps in. Happiness is not linear. Learning from these moments of darkness and anxiety-ridden moments is a huge part of life. There is a light at the end of self-reflection. 




The rush of dread and anxiety that I get sometimes before I’m about to drift off to sleep has been a strange experience that I have had frequently for the past few years. I have been finding ways to cope with this feeling such as getting out of bed, putting on my headphones and dancing alone in my room, shaking out the ache of anxiety in my shoulders.  This multimedia comic strip was created in these moments as another way of dealing with my late-night anxiety.
