How to cope with future anxiety

The world will end someday, but the end of the world and the end of time are two different things.

Dolly Parton

Alright, that title might be a little misleading. It’s going to be mainly about how I cope with future anxiety. My hope is that these techniques may be of use or value to others in the same situation.

I just sing to music. Like, a lot. Constantly. There’s always a song playing in my head, like my recent memory is just a playback of radio snippets or the latest earworm. It’s no exaggeration to truly say that music is in my beating heart, despite my lack of knowledge and skill in advanced song-making.

And so, in light of that, I’m making a playlist for the troubled. I hope you will find that it gives some comfort. It’s not about denying that pain but embracing it, growing past it: Finding strength in yourself.
