What is your favorite weather? Do you like sunrises or sunsets? Favorite song?
My favorite weather is just as the summer turns to fall. A good crisp in the air as you need a light jacket, but not so cold that you can’t be outside.
I would say sunsets, but that’s probably only because I’ve seen more of them.
And my favorite song right now is Rachel Platton’s Lone Ranger. I don’t know why but it just sticks in my brain and resonates with me these days.
Thanks for asking!! Taking any questions tonight, anon is on

put your empty hands in mine
And scars, show me all the scars you hide
And hey, if your wings are broken
Please take mine so yours can open too
Cause I’m gonna stand by you
When I came to Florida to intern with TWLOHA, I was counting
on meeting genuine people who cared about others and the struggles they faced.
And I did. But what I didn’t expect was to
have that compassion expressed toward me while I walked through something
painful during my time here. I didn’t expect the people I work with to come
alongside and support me through the especially difficult moments/days.
Usually, when I’m dealing with heavy things, I internalize
everything and deal with it on my own. Sometimes I’ll eventually open up about
it, sometimes I won’t. I can count on one hand the number of people in my
personal life that I would normally think about sharing with when I’m
struggling. I’ve often felt isolated in my emotions and, many times, I’ve put
on a false face to make everyone think that I’m okay when I’m the farthest thing
But that’s not how things have worked here. I’ve been
surrounded by people who genuinely want to know how I’m doing and who ask what
they can do to help. And the offers of help have been 100% genuine; none of
them have been spoken flippantly. People here genuinely care, and most of them
don’t know exactly what I’m dealing with; they just know I’m struggling. But if
I start bawling in the middle of the office or back at the intern house, it’s
guaranteed that someone will be right next to me, holding my hand or rubbing my
back, until the tears subside.
we’re breaking down, we can find a way to break through
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, cause I’m gonna stand by you
Even in my most painful moments, I have been shown
understanding and grace and that has kept me from giving up and wallowing. I
have found people who aren’t uncomfortable when breakdowns happen. I don’t feel
like I have to hide what I’m feeling here. That alone is an incredible thing.
And even when there is nothing anyone can do to make things better, I’m not
left alone. Having someone who is willing to simply be with me as I weather
this storm has been such a comfort.
your eyes ‘til yours can shine
I’ll be your arms, I’ll be your steady satellite
And when you can’t rise, well, I’ll crawl with you on hands and knees
Not once has anyone tried to make me feel guilty for
struggling. No one has made me feel like I just need to ‘get over it.’ The love
I have been shown has been a soothing balm for my weary spirit. I know that it
will take some time to work through what I’m dealing with. I know there will be
more restless nights, more breakdowns, and more uncertainty. I know that the
people here can’t fix me and I would never expect that of them. But they are
helping me heal. They are allowing me to process and move forward. Knowing that
I’m not alone in what I’m feeling and knowing that people genuinely give a shit
about me takes a little bit of this burden off of my shoulders.
If there’s one thing that I’ve learned during this time,
it’s that it’s okay to be honest with where I’m at. It’s okay to say that I’m
not okay. It’s okay to be vulnerable. While it can be terrifying to put myself
and my emotions out there for others to see, it’s so worth it. I could’ve kept
everything bottled inside of myself and dealt with it all on my own. I
could’ve, but I didn’t. And while some things are painful and ugly and
difficult to share, I’m so glad that I let people in and allowed myself to be taken
care of during this difficult time. I will forever be grateful to this TWLOHA
family for helping me through this season of life and loving me unconditionally
all the while.
