The Cure for Anything

If you ready my post yesterday, you know that I was headed for a full-fledged mental breakdown. And it happened. You've also probably realized that I have some anxiety issues as well. But, I feel so much better now that it's all out. I haven't received a letter from my top choice school yet, so I'm feeling like it will be in my mailbox later today. I am still terrified of what it's going to say, but after hearing some much needed reassuring words, I think that I'll be alright.

It's still crazy how the next four years of my life are heading to my house right now on a little sheet of paper, but it's going to be ok. I'm still trying to convince myself that no matter what it says that I'm still Victoria, I'm still smart, and I'm still valuable. It's a hard trio to believe sometimes.

What really got me through yesterday was my friends. I'm the type of person who has to talk everything out and vent endlessly until it's all out of my system. Thankfully, my friends and teammates were willing to listen and helped calm me down. They told me that no matter what, they still love me, and I honestly couldn't ask for much more than that.

I've been so blessed over the years to have these sweet friends, and I know that since I am leaving for college (somewhere...hopefully), I will truly miss them more than they will ever know. The good news is that I have all of their numbers and usernames so a tweet or a text will keep them close to my heart for the years to come.

So, they say the cure for anything is salt - sweat, tears, or the sea. I disagree. The cure for anything is people who love you.

xx, Victoria
