Caught in a Whirlwind of Emotions
Since so many of you love it whenever I post advice, I thought it would be nice if I shared some more "life tips" on this blog. Like previously, on THIS POST HERE called "It's OK to not be OK," and THIS POST called "Keep Fighting for What You Love."
Which by the way, got SO MUCH feedback from you guys, and I just want to give you all one big hug! So thank you, and keep on commenting on those posts above.
You know that feeling when every single memory with a certain person flashes in your mind like flipping through old photographs?
Every little detail I can remember makes me smile and wince in embarrassment (even if the memory happened 1 YEAR AGO, haha!) The way he looks at me with that shine in his eyes- the kind that seem to stick around longer than the words that were actually exchanged. The way his dimples in his cheeks played peek-a-boo while we talked. The way he continued to impress me and make me laugh almost every time I saw him.
This put the biggest smile on my face, as I know he'll always be there for me, waiting at the bottom of a cliff to catch me if I fall...
Ok. So not LITERALLY waiting at the bottom of a cliff, and I'm not actually going to fall off, but I'm sure you get my point, haha!
But these memories of him make me feel so happy.
These overwhelming things weren't happy and didn't make me blush like what I described above. I hate to say it, but I was almost on the urge to break down.
One of my other close friends was that person who reassured me with some truly amazing, encouraging things. Even though we are going to different schools next year, I know I can always count on her to be my personal cheerleader.
After I texted her, she gave me this little note:
Suggestion: take naps but don't waste the day, or lay down on the grass but don't sleep. That should help you relax and make you feel less drained. Love you my little squish.
And for some reason, those couple of words meant so much to me.
Because when someone tells you things like this while you're at your worst, and who really likes you for you, and you really like them for them, you have to do all you can not to lose them.
I love you guys so much and I'm so grateful for all of your support.
Keep posting about your tough times- and keep fighting for what you love.
