"I'm Fine" looks to normalize and validate anxiety as a legitimate mental illness. It emphasizes an awareness of the vast majority of people that suffer from some sort of anxiety, and pushes to break the stereotype that seeking help for yourself is a sign of weakness. It is a reminder that you are not alone, others understand what you are going through, and your feelings are valid + important.
