Sometimes You’ve Got To Step Up


No matter how big the fear, no matter how massive the anxiety, sometimes you just need to ignore it. 

One of my biggest anxiety triggers is getting sick with the flu. When I was younger dehydration and the flu landed me in a 4 or 5 day stay at the hospital. Since then, the fear of getting sick can set off a major panic attack. 

However, one of the things that goes along with a serious relationship? One of you is going to eventually get sick. And the other is going to have to step up and take care of them. Unless, you know, you’re an asshole and make them take care of themselves. 

Love means making choices that are hard. It means sometimes putting someone before yourself, even before your anxiety. For me, that means still giving kisses, holding him when he hurts, and risking getting sick myself. 

All for him.
