Ok, so this last weekend was Nutcracker weekend, which meant late nights, early mornings and a constantly putting on makeup, doing hair, practicing my dances, and performing on stage. I’m the kinda person who loves doing things, but of course I got exhausted.
Sunday night we were finally done, and I went to bed. For some reason I had a pretty bad anxiety attack. They don’t happen often but when they do they last for hours. Naturally I didn’t get much sleep.
The next day my parents let me stay home, and I get a text from Ice cream tattoo guy saying “are you okay?”
I replied that I was fine and that I’d just had a long weekend and a rough night and only got a few hours of sleep. I was expecting an “ok cool” or something, but he goes “Like last night? Do you wanna talk about it?”
I almost started crying 😭
Im usually the friend you call when you need to vent, the friend who you can text whenever and I’ll be there. I’ve never had a friend, especially a boy, be this kind and vulnerable.
I told him about my anxiety attacks and how I can’t sleep because of them, and he was so sweet. He said that he knows people struggling with stuff like this and wants to do anything he can to help. He said that if I need to talk or anything to just call him even if he’s asleep. The conversation went on for a while, and I feel like we got a lot closer talking about deep stuff like this.
So many guys pretend to be all tough and not care about feelings, so the way he offered his supported was probably the sweetest thing a guy has done for me.
Also the fact he texts me every time that I’m out of school makes me so happy 😍ns220.127.116.11da2
