To the Person Who Calms My Anxious Mind


I feel like I don’t say it enough.

Thank you.

Thank you for understanding me.  I can barely understand my anxiety sometimes, and on those days you’re there. Thank you.

Thank you for letting me hold your hand. Thank you for letting me squeeze it when I feel so panicked I can’t breathe.

Thank you for calming my anxious mind. For using logic against my anxiety.

Thank you for continuing to be by my side even on the bad days. The days where my anxiety says to push you away

Thank you for accepting and loving me. Thank you for accepting and loving my anxiety.

Thank you for being there when I need you. Thank you for reminding me to breathe.

Thank you for telling me you’re proud. Just proud I got through it.

You have no idea how much that means to me.

Thank you.
