Absence makes the heart grow… anxious?

Some context…

Anxiety is something openly talked about on the internet nowadays. Maybe not so much real life…but, hey, it’s a start. Someone on my Facebook shared this the other day and it’s really got me thinking; particularly, this little partΒ in the intro – “the all-consuming monster that is Introvert Culture, and the enabling, garbled pseudo-psychology that is Tumblr Advice”.
