Today was actually unbelievably difficult, and I broke down crying on my college campus and had to walk across the whole thing with a red face and puffy eyes. I then sat in traffic for two hours and all I’ve had to eat today was some crackers and Pocky.
…and then this.
You have no idea how much this has lightened my heart, and everything is just so beautiful and I can’t wait to frame it all.
Your words as well make me feel like I’m not so alone. It feels like some of these things sit so heavy inside of me that seeing someone else write it down helps so much.
It’s just so powerful and it’s just…i just needed this today, and I didn’t even know it.
Thank you so much, Izzy. I appreciate it like crazy. You’re an amazing artist.
