The Pressure of Perfection
Thanks for helping me. The more I interact with teens the more I come to understand the level of stress that they are under. Understand, that anxiety is normal. In the days of the cavemen, the racing pulse, the queazy stomach, that heightened response helped protect them from danger. Now the world we live in is relatively safe and anxiety is no longer a tool for our physical safety as often and now it seems to wreck havoc with out emotional well being.

I am in no way an expert in the field and I am not approaching this as such. I am just a mom who hurts for the kids who are facing this. And as an artist, I am wanting to create a body of work that helps bring light to the struggle. A certain level of anxiety is normal, but if you think that you might be experiencing more than that, please get help. This is not meant to be that sort of help.
