Cold and dark; safe space.
When you think of me.
I hope you’re not feeling very anxious at the moment. And if you are, remember that it gets better. You don’t believe it, but it does. My partner tells me this but I don’t believe. I’m trying too. So we’re together in that trying.
We share the same birthday. We were born on the exact same day and then we have shared a friendship and a masters degree experience and if we share this trying to believe… It’s all very poetic isn’t it.
You’ve helped me realise that horrifying anxieties don’t have to be covered up and hidden and stored away under a rosy exterior. They can be accepted as our selves who also want to use an instagram filter with cute emojis once in a while. Our anxieties can be glamorous divas and much more. Nothing to be ashamed of.
Don’t forget to wish me on my birthday!
Your anxious batchmate,
