I know that I’ve written tons of thank you posts and that you may be tired of them, but I really want to stress how much I appreciate you guys. I’ve met so many wonderful people through blogging and I’ve witnessed so much kindness through your support, kind words, and amazing gestures. You guys have inspired me to write more and try my hardest to help both myself and others.
I’ve always enjoyed writing and while I do think I’m good at it, I think all writers sometimes doubt their talent. However, through your helpful, honest, and kind feedback, you have helped restore my faith in my writing. You have provided me with the extra boost of confidence that writers (or wanna be writers, for that matter) so often need.
Not only have you all been a huge part of my writing ventures, but you have also made me realize that I can help others through sharing my experiences. I started this blog because I thought it would help me with my anxiety and I think it has. However, I didn’t realize just how much I’d be able to help others. While I can’t be sure that I have, you guys often let me know that I’ve been helpful. It means the world to me that I can help in some small way.
I’ve made some wonderful friends through blogging. I’ve found that so many of you have similar struggles, interests, and opinions as I do. You guys have helped me realize that I’m not alone in dealing with my anxiety.
Due to the fact that the world can at times be an unsafe place, I will most likely never meet you guys in real life. However, this does not stop me from considering some of you very good friends and there are many of you that, if the world was a safer place, I would love to try and meet.
What I’m about to do is list some, not all, of the wonderful people I have met through blogging. I want all of you to realize that every single one of you that has been supportive of my journey means the world to me. I would not list names in this post, but I feel as if some of you deserve extra recognition. Again though, this does not mean that the people I don’t name mean any less to me. Please know that I genuinely mean this.
I would like to give a special shout out to the following individuals and their blogs:
Mary from Mary’s Average Adventures: Mary has been here reading my blog since the beginning. Mary, it means so much to me that you offer continuous support and are always here to listen. Thank you so much for your kindness and friendship. I can’t tell you how much it means to me that you’re always here to offer help and words of encouragement. You are so brave to have traveled like you did. Never doubt your ability to do great things!
Amber from Journey to Freedom from Anxiety: Thank you also for your kindness, support, and advice. I really feel like you’re here for me and you go out of your way to offer help. Thanks for being such a good friend!
Kim from Peace, Love and Patchouli: You are so talented, kind, and supportive. I love talking to you and working with you. Thank you so much for allowing me to collaborate on poetry with you. It’s an honor to work with someone so talented!
Carla from The Melodramatic Confessions of Carla Louise: Carla, you are so passionate and opinionated. Those are two great qualities that I admire! I keep saying this, but you are such a wonderful person and you have such a big heart. Not everyone is willing to stand up for those whom they might not even know, but you are. Also, I love our conversations and the fact that we get along so well. I really believe that you’ll be successful with whatever path you choose! Thank you for your friendship, kindness, understanding, and support!
“M” from The Seeds 4 Life: I didn’t know if you wanted me to put your full first name on here, but I’d like to thank you. Through your blog, I have been able to help myself and hopefully others while doing what I love best – writing. You have inspired me to use my talents to help others. You have been so kind and supportive and have gone out of your way to assure me that you appreciate me as a person and a writer. Thank you so much for continued support and friendship.
Sandy from Sandycademy: You are so strong! Thank you for being such a good friend and for inspiring me and all your other readers. Thanks for creating the Grains of Sand project. It’s really helpful in reminding ourselves of all the accomplishments we have made.
Becky from A (Mostly) Music Blog: Becky, you were another one of the first people that I really felt that I could connect with. We both shared the common issue of becoming anxious in class. You were and still are so supportive and kind. Thank you for all your support!
Jade from Jade Moore: Jade, while I just recently “met” you, you have been so kind and supportive. You have such a big heart. You created the project, Letters to the Mind, which is both helpful and inspirational. You are such a talented writer and you have chosen to use your talent to help others. Thank you so much for your friendship and support!
Jen from The Anxiety Chronicles: You are so helpful and inspirational. You are kind and are always putting a smile on my face. Thank you so much for your friendship!
Thank you to everyone who has read, “liked”, commented on, and followed my blog. Your kindness, support, and friendship means the world to me. NEVER DOUBT THAT!
