It Came Suddenly

Dear Diary

Struggling with depression and anxiety is a new thing for me. Having other issues on top of that make life dull and scary sometimes. This year was hard. I never thought I would miss going to Target without a mask on. I never thought I would miss coming to school and being able to sit with all my friends at once. Hugs became a minimal thing. It was scary. It all was scary. Some days, I did better. I could take a breath without feeling like I was underwater. Other days, all I wanted to do is lay in my bed and light a candle to let its aroma bring me back to my aware and natural state. 2020 has been tough. I know I will do better though. I am resilient and so is everyone else.
