overwhelmed tears

The comic I made is about a claustrophobic fart that gets trapped in a small dark room. He breaks out into panic and sheds tears of overwhelm. This scene acts as a metaphor, of being put in a stressful situation, by outside forces, without having a choice, the claustrophobic feeling of overwhelm and helplessness. In the comic, by changing ones perspective about oneself – (the fart realizing that he is not even solid, and thus having many possibilities of escaping )- you can free yourself of this feeling.

While this might help some people, it is important to acknowledge that the happy end in the comic doesn’t translate to reality and that overwhelm can cause mental conditions like burnout and is to be taken seriously.
