To the One Healing My Heart

To the One Healing My Heart

Thank you for taking the time to comfort me, heal me, and love me.


You really had your work cut out for you.

Before you found me, I was a broken shell of myself - the cast off pieces of another relationship gone sour. I had myself convinced that I wasn't worthy of someone else's total love and attention because those that had come before you had me convinced to think that way. Each negative word or hurtful action committed against me had turned into a brick that built a wall of insecurity and self-doubt. After all, who could ever love a girl that wasn't good enough for someone else time and time again?

Then, you came along.

Like the most unexpected miracle, you tumbled, stumbled, skipped-tripped-and-fell into my life. After a few weeks of 21st century, oh-so-cliche Snapchat-ing and texting, I reluctantly chipped away at a few bricks and let you take me out on that first date; after all, what harm could it do? You would inevitably see all of the flaws all the others saw and phase yourself out of my life.

Luckily, I was wrong.

Persistent like a mid-winter cough, you stuck around and proved yourself to be out of the ordinary time and time again. You asked me about my favorite food (to your dismay, Panda Express), we talked about our eerily common interests (luckily I'm not the only 20-something utterly obsessed with Disney), and shared our personal goals for the future. With a few more bricks missing out of my wall, I decided to open up to you. If you had the gall to stick around this hot-mess express, I at least owed you the explanation of why - why I was broken, why I was insecure, and why I didn't think I was worthy of someone's total adoration.

Surely this was it; why would you want to stick around now?

Much to my pleasant surprise, you opened up to me too; your heart was also on the mend, and you had all but given up that 'perfect someone' was out there. As the saying goes, 'the rest was history;' it immediately became obvious we were meant to be together, meant to help each other heal. Not much time passed before we pitched head-long into that deep, no-holds-barred kind of love we had both been searching for all this time; a patient, healing kind of love that kicked, crushed, and crumbled the rest of the bricks that were left in my wall. Those bricks became dust on the wind, floating away along with all of the bad memories and my insecurities they were made with.

And for that, I thank you.

Thank you for proving to me I was worthy - worthy of all the love in the world, worthy of self-confidence, and worthy of happiness. Thank you for being patient, because we both know those bricks were tough and stubborn. Thank you for being you, because that's why we are where we are now.

And for that, I love you.

Have you noticed that you're drinking a lot more than you used to during the Pandemic? You're not alone.

I too in recent weeks have noticed that I'm drinking more than normal, and earlier in the day. I've started having a glass of wine with lunch a few days a week, something I never used to do. Although, a recent Odyssey survey shows that most Americans are starting to drink between 4 and 8 pm.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
