Thankful Thursday: College Edition

This week I’m thankful for the countless opportunities I have been given in my life. Living with depression and anxiety, it can be easy to fall into a cycle of complaint and dissatisfaction. But, there’s a saying that the things we take for granted are the things other people might be praying for.

I complain about school a lot, because it can be overwhelming and exhausting. But, I’m able to go to school without having to worry about it. I don’t have to pay rent. I don’t have to pay my own tuition. And I’m sure if I really needed to, I could get one of my parents to pay for my monthly bus pass.

I’m extremely fortunate that I am able to just devote my time to school. No matter how tired I get, there are so many others who have to work much harder for my same schedule, or who never get such an opportunity at all.

It’s something to be grateful for.

I love you all.

  1. Anxiety and depression touches people in all walks of life. It sucks when you are rich, it sucks when you are poor. I used to wonder about these gorgeous rich celebrities who committed suicide, and just thought they were ingrates….then I met depression, and I feel nothing but love and sadness for them
