I am overwhelmed by the kindness of my fellow bloggers.
The support, the encouragement. It’s truly amazing to have this group of people; I really feel like you are all looking after me and supporting me every step of the way.
I was filled with anxiety earlier today; I haven’t been this anxious in a really long time. I think my immediate stress in regards to school combined with my concerns about the future just got to be a little much for me; together, they pushed me over the brink into this pool of anxiety that I’ve been in all day. I’ve been trying to not to worry so much about the future and about all my responsibilities, but sometimes that’s easier said than done–especially when living with anxiety.
I got out of a class today and headed up to the archives to do some research, even though I really wasn’t feeling it. I have to get more research done for my distance mentorship, though. Since I was feeling so anxious, I decided to take some time for myself before diving into my research. I checked in with myself, took some time to just sit and breath.
I decided to briefly check WordPress. Upon logging on, I was greeted with a flood of notifications from fellow bloggers regarding my most recent post.
I took it all in. The kindness. The encouragement.
As I read through the comments, I felt my anxiety melting away–at least for a little bit.
It means so much to me to see such kind and thoughtful words.
I have a great support system here at school. My friend group is amazing and I love them to pieces. My family is also incredibly supportive, too.
But it really is amazing to know that you are all here, in this virtual space. I feel so lucky to be able to share this blogosphere with all of you.
I do write for myself. That’s why I started to blog in the first place. I continue to blog to grow as a writer and to understand myself better. Honestly, though, this support system is the best thing I’ve found here on WordPress.
So thank you. Truly, thank you.
