Accepting Anxiety, Part 2/2: Can Anxiety Be Good?  Episode #17

Synopsis: I don't think I've ever been described as particularly... chill. My heightened anxiety, both socially and in general has been something I've had to deal with a lot. But what if any and all fear, shame, and anxiety suddenly up and went away? In this Sanders Sides video, that very thing has happened, and we do our best to reason out the potential upsides to anxiety, whether or not its a good thing to have it back.
Genre: Horror

Previously on Sanders Sides... Ahhh- I didn't cut together any footage for this.

Ugh, it's fine. I'll just perform the review myself so.. Thomas started the video and was acting like an aloof moron with no filter and Logic was like "What's up?" Then, Morality and I showed up, and we were like, "What's up?" Then, we realized Anxiety wasn't here and Thomas didn't have any anxiety at all and I was like, "That's not a bad thing because I'm the dreamer." But the other two were like, "We need him or whatever.." So we were like, "Where is he?" Then we deduced that he was probably in the corner of Thomas' mind where Anxiety resides or "Anxiety's room." So we all journeyed there together to find him. Does that make sense?

Yeah, or you know.. you could just click here and watch the previous video.

And that's what you missed on me!


Whoa... *snaps his fingers* I knew I should have taken that left turn at Albuquerque.

You made that joke in the last video.

I know.. It was just to re-establish where we are in the present timeline. Wow... So, this is Anxiety's room... His room sure looks a lot like my living room... Like, what is this, the upside-down world or something?

No, the room just varies based on whatever your present location is.

One of the darker corners of my mind, the source of all my worries and fears, and-

Nightmare before Christmas?


Yeah, it does not get that dark.

Oh. I love that.

YAH! Spiders!

No need to worry, Patton. That is just the.. pattern on the curtains.

I am terribly afraid of spiders... I would like to trade places with someone.

This room is literally covered in spider webs and yet, the curtains unsettle you?

Well, I literally don't see any spiders in those, Logan. These curtains are literally covered in them.

Why, those are just silly cartoons, they're not even realistic. But if need be, I will destroy them for you, Patton.

Thanks, but let's call them what they are, Roman.

Spider curtain-

Creepy Crawly Death Dealers.


Alright, but, like, if this is his room... where is Anxi-


-Thomas screams-

-Logan screams-

-Roman screams an extremely high-pitched scream-

AHHH, I think one of them moved!

Anxiety? Oh, my goodness. I'm so happy to see you. That's weird.

You literally all just screamed in unison upon seeing me.

Sorry. It's just- you do this thing... where you- where you just kind of... appear.

Wait, what am I wearing? What IS my hair?!

Welcome back, Thomas. *throws him a hairbrush*

Thanks, Roman. *throws hairbrush back, which hits Roman*


Look... Anxiety, you don't understand.

Come on...

For some reason, I wasn't feeling your presence at all.

Yeah, I know. It's because I've decided to duck out.


What- duck out?

Quack, quack.

That's a thing you can do?

For this video, I guess.

What do you mean?

I removed myself from the equation. I quit. Decided it wasn't worth it anymore.

Why would you do that?

Well, it didn't seem like I was wanted. You all made that pretty clear anytime I showed up.


Except you, Patton. You're a funny guy.
