June TC challenge
Day 25 - Describe a special moment you had with your TC.
I’ve had a few meaningful moments but my #1 one will always be that in the week of the school musical we spent lots of time together (she was the dance teacher, I played a lead role), and she noticed I didn’t eat a lot and realised it was because of weight loss reasons (I had/have an eating disorder), and after the last show of the school musical, during the afterparty, there was a weird situation with this friend of mine so we were talking and then she came up to us like “hey.. am I interrupting? Can I sit with you both?” And I was like “uhmm.. you are interrupting actually but if my friend doesn’t mind you can join??” and my friend got up and left without saying bye or making eye contact and we were both kinda like ?? okay sad bc she knows my friend has #issues too so she understood it and we talked about him for a while
And then she said “now we’re having these kind of conversations anyway, how are you doing?” and I was like meh idk and she asked me “how bad is it?” and I’m not gonna go into detail but it was the first time opening up to her or ANYONE in so long and it was really comfortable and I felt super safe and understood, she asked me some really good questions and listened to me and then after a while she said “do you have any other secrets I need to know about?” and I was like yes…. and she just sat there and wasn’t too eager to hear and let me say what I wanted to and and when I was kinda done talking she just started saying all of those super good things and ended with “you’re allowed to exist, really” and pulled me close to her and it felt super safe and I just rested my head on her shoulder and she hugged me
And later someone asked her something and she went to find someone and I had to clean up some things and she said “I’ll come back to you later” and when she did we talked for a minute or two and I thanked her for being so nice to me and she hugged me for 20 seconds and said I could always come talk to her or message her, in weekends too, and I’m just so so grateful for all of this.
