Butterflies Diaries #1

By Tunji Falana

Before I was told we were making this show about anxiety/worrying in children, I wasn't fully aware of how it affected people’s day to day or activities. I knew people got anxious or worried as did I from time to time, but never that it stopped people from doing what they should or wanted to do. Growing up in Nigeria, it wasn't really spoken about or echoed not in adults let alone children. The general knowledge was you are worried about it, get over it and do it.

For the full blog click 'read the whole story' by the title.

Now, with research and learning during rehearsals, I have a better knowledge on the subject. The cerebral process, the physical and mental reactions etc. Most of all I feel a little equipped on how to help someone who is anxious or perhaps having a panic attack. I am no professional don't get me wrong, but one of the things I’ve learnt over the course of the time is to acknowledge the feeling, as it allows the person to realize that it’s normal to feel this way. Everyone has either a healthy level of anxiety or that one thing you most worry about and just can’t shake the feeling.

Oh yes! the feeling is a thing and sometimes we can’t explain it, sometimes it takes over our lives. We all experience it at some point. Right now I’m a little nervous that all I have said won’t make sense. However, I am going to focus on the task rather than the outcome.

 

So come join us, come take a little journey with us as explore this sometimes inexplicable, sometimes hindering, sometimes helpful feeling that we can’t just shake.
