    I'm thankful for

    A nice pink aimpolish, a whole new battle I picked up by chance

    That emotional abuse is being spoken about in mainstream media

    That we live in 2021 and ppl are listening to vulnerable people's stories and voices

    Today I am thankful:

    1) For my partner who comforts me if I am having a low day. He doesn't try to give me suggestions on how to feel better or minimise my feelings but rather always makes me feel heard.

    2)For treating each day as a new day

    3) That I have great food to eat today! That always makes me happy

    Today I'm thankful

    For a day at home to catch up with stuff, to read and rest

    For the refreshing rain I hope is wide spread to put out some local fires!

    For different ways to communicate with people besides face to face
