Anxiety seems to be very much on the up. I don’t think this is overly surprising. The world seems to be getting a lot less emotionally gentle. It seems more individualistic, faster-paced, more competitive, less community orientated, less reflective and there seems to be a lack of patience and empathy (which equates to taking time to understand others). We also have distilled global news full of shocking, inhumane injustices, available at fingerpoint and we have a sense of not really being able to do very much about any of it.
