Thank You For Loving Me And My Anxiety

Anxiety is more than worrying. It's like being caught in a rain storm where your umbrella keeps turning inside out. You have a glimmer of hope that the wind will subdue and rain will slowly turn from a downpour to a calm dribble but in the end, you still get drenched. Sure, there are triggers such as waiting rooms or sensory overload. But sometimes, it's just an overwhelming feeling that overtakes your body. Your body doesn't feel like it belongs to you. Every single thing that could go wrong echoes in your head. If it gets bad enough, you enter into an anxiety attack. Your body shuts down and you're left shaking, hysterically crying and sometimes, you don't even know why.

Now, let's add another human into the mix. Being in a relationship with someone who has anxiety isn't easy. Period. Anxiety brings such discomfort to the brain and causes constant confidence issues. You can't help but listen to the questions your mind throws in your face.

  1. “Did I say something wrong?”
  2. “Are they mad at me?”
  3. “Am I texting them too much?”
  4. “What if I'm not good enough?
  5. “Are they going to leave me because my anxiety is too much to handle?”

But now, think of the best possible outcome of a relationship. Your significant other learns your triggers. They learn what calms you down and they don't mind telling you multiple times a day they won't go anywhere. They won't leave you. They understand that sometimes, you just break down for no reason and they stay by your side until the rain passes. They run their fingers through your hair and whisper comfort in your ear when you're midst attack. They always make sure you go to sleep knowing how loved you are. They are everything you ever thought you didn't deserve. They go above and beyond to give you unconditional happiness.

They may not understand how the small things they do make such a huge impact. Saying “thank you” isn't even enough to describe how much their love and time means to you, but sometimes, you just need a place to start.

  1. Thank you for your patience.
  2. Thank you for your constant reassurance.
  3. Thank you for your shoulder.
  4. Thank you for knowing my anxiety doesn't define me.
  5. Thank you for helping me push my limits.
  6. Thank you for being my biggest supporter.
  7. Thank you for calming me down when I ugly cry.
  8. Thank you for always having my best in mind.
  9. Thank you for being understanding.
  10. Thank you for putting up with me when I'm stubborn about the reasons of my attacks.
  11. Thank you for always making sure I fall asleep knowing how loved I am.
  12. Thank you for never failing to let a day go by without telling me how beautiful I am.
  13. Thank you for your compromises.
  14. Thank you for listening when it feels like the world is crashing in.
  15. Thank you for learning the signs of when an anxiety attack is coming.
  16. Thank you for the back rubs, cups of tea and the sound of your heart.
  17. Thank you for talking about our future as a perfect distraction.
  18. Thank you for whispering the sweetest sighs in between the sobs.
  19. Thank you for loving me when I thought I couldn't be loved.
  20. Thank you for the happiness I feel when I think of you.

Finally, thank you for coming into my life and loving every part of me. For loving the good, the bad and everything in between. Because of you, I believe in me but most of all, I believe in us.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
