I am a 30 year old who has struggled with anxiety for most of my life. Like many millennials, I struggle with employment, the uselessness of a college degree, and the stress of living honestly and meeting the “responsibilities” of adulthood. Like many black men, I struggle with the frustration of living in a eurocentric society/world that targets and steps on black men. I believe in therapy and more so in bringing anxiety-related issues into a more normalized place, especially for black men.
I have spent most of my life believing that my insecurities, oddities and particular ways made me different from everyone else. I hope to add to any voice showing that there are different ways to be a black man. I am not always strong or cool. I hope in the honesty, other brothers like myself are encouraged to continue the struggle.
