I think we’ve officially reached that annoying time in the year where it’s sweater weather in the morning, but by midday, if you wear a sweater, you die from heatstroke.
today, i unintentionally smiled at a cute boy and he smiled back… and if my life was a contemporary YA novel, we’d be in love by now
today, i let cleaners into my building and one was a young, slightly tousled, Australian guy who started dancing when he put his headphones in… and if my life was a contemporary YA novel, we’d be in love by now
One of the best pieces of advice I was ever given was at church, I asked to be prayed for for anxiety […] and he said “Well, you realize that you are more centered on yourself than you are on God?” And I know not everyone here believes in God and that’s okay but I do think that that is a pivotal piece of advice if you’re consumed by anxiety because you are consumed by yourself and you’re worried, “What do people think of me? Do people like me? Did I say the right thing?” And for me, part of transitioning away from that was starting to think about the person I’m talking to. About the people I’m surrounded by. And every time I’m worried like, “What if they don’t like me?” I just think, “Do I like them? What are they talking about right now? What are they up to?” And I just had to keep telling myself and reminding myself to stop focusing on myself."

Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else. But just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breathe in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes."
