one of the best photos ive ever seen

“Share a photo or GIF of something that calms you down”

 Not a photo of something, but someone.

The SO and I have been together going on seven years this July and nobody can talk me down off the ledge like this man. He has seen me at the bottom-of-the-barrel legit worst

I’m talking anxiety-ridden and ugly crying over money or stress or school or hooked up to an IV and oxygen while projectile vomiting into a robin-egg blue bowl that he’s holding in front of my face at 4 am the day after Valentine’s Day at the hospital (best Valentine’s Day ever). 

Here’s to the people who have seen the worst of us but bring out the best in us. And while we’re talking about people who keep us calm and centered:

I wouldn’t be here without my three older sisters. I can say this without a shadow of a doubt: I could call any one of them at any time and they would pick up the phone and be there for me. 

It’s important to have a strong support system, and it took me a long time to accept when I need the help of others. God knows I got my share of help from them whether I asked for it or not. <3 If any of you need someone to simply just listen or rant to, my inbox is open to you always.

Who/what does that for you? What keeps you calm during hard times?
