anonymous asked:

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

Hands, 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 from it.

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.

Even if 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.

I’ll be 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.

Love, you’re not alone
Oh, I’m gonna stand by you
