For Thanksgiving Greg’s whole class is supposed to draw pilgrims but to everyone’s confusion he draws a guy in a pointy red hat and tells everybody it’s his brother who’s a pilgrim, so his teacher tries to set him straight by showing him the illustrations in the book but he starts laughing and says “Nahhh, that’s Lorna!” so then they just kind of let him draw whatever the heck he wants.

Do you have any tips for people with anxiety? I thought I was getting better but just in the past couple of weeks it’s been getting a lot worse. When I feel really anxious I can’t speak, think, or breath correctly. And I’ve been feeling really anxious a lot lately

My advice for anxiety:

  • 🌸 Focus on the present. Don’t think about the future because the future is uncertain and there’s no use dwelling on what may happen. So focus on what you can control. Like if you’re anxious about exams, focus on studying rather than imagining the exam room/failing. Take little steps and notice when you’re thinking too far ahead.
  • 🌸 Distract yourself. Listen to music, go on YouTube, go outside, make some tea, read a book, go on tumblr. I find writing thoughts down, baking/cooking or going for a walk/run helpful.
  • 🌸 Your anxious thoughts are not the truth. Anxiety makes you imagine the worst case scenarios, or it makes you paranoid that no one cares/everything will go badly/you’ll mess up. But do what you can now and you’ll be ok. Most of the time things turn out fine. You’ll be okay, you’re smarter/more capable than you think, people love you more than you think, and things will go surprisingly better than you think.

I hope this helps!


Because I am a small man, my heart is moved by what’s in front of my eyes, not by what the world needs. I just can’t abandon what’s there in front of me. I want to protect everything I can.
