fueling the search engine…angst metaphor

angst metaphor

I’m both flattered and disturbed that these words hit me up. Am I really that angst-ish? Don’t answer that, rhetorical question.

In answer to this I’m offering up to you a lovely angst metaphor. Now to begin I feel it’s important we unpack “angst” a little.

To define Angst:


1. A feeling of deep anxiety or dread, typically an unfocused one about the human condition or the state of the world in general.

2. A feeling of persistent worry about something trivial.

Your metaphor, dear search engine user follows thusly-

I breathe it in, willingly, because I am certain it belongs to me, because I am certain I need this pollution in order to live…but I am wrong, just then. I need only the clean air of truth, of letting go, the stuff I can’t see and can only trust exists.
