bless friends who tell you, “text me when you get home safe”
"Two February’s ago, all I wanted to do was sleep. I was anchored to my bed with the sadness I was letting myself drown in. Now, I daydream about surviving on 3 hours of sleep, I dread going to bed, I keep my eyes open as long as I can. My heart sinks when the sun sets, I crave daylight; I’ve fallen in love with being alive."
"You deserve to be with somebody who will drive three hours, just to see you for one."
anxiety is not cured by forcing a person into the situation that makes them anxious
Social anxiety is an actual thing. I really wish people would respect that and stop pestering people who have it to “just talk more/stop isolating yourself.”
They’re aware of what they’re doing. Pointing it out their behavior does not help it, but worsens it.
So thank you for not acknowledging a person’s condition, but instead labeling it as something you can easily overcome.
