Express Yourself … 52

8…Express Gratitude to 3 people

This is still apart of the 52 Week Grateful Challenge, but the reason I am posting this on a Saturday today is because my partner and I are celebrating his birthday tonight, and he is definitely one of the people I need to express gratitude too. So i thought it’d be nice to do this on his birthday, rather than not on another regular day. I know he knows about this Blog, but I don’t know if he has actually read…well…anything,lol

My partner

I don’t even know where to start with my partner. He has been absolutely unbelievable and just SO kind and considerate. I think the kindness is what I am the most grateful for. When I first had met him, I had developed sciatica and the pain in my leg would be so overwhelming and I wasn’t always able to just go out and do things. Ever since then I developed a condition thanks to another family member putting me through  a traumatic experience. I have not been the same since. But he acts like there’s nothing wrong and it is so unbelievably helpful. The other people who know about my condition wont stop talking to me about it, even though I ask them not too. So I don’t constantly think about it, thinking about it makes it worse. My partner actually respects that and doesn’t talk about it, especially when we’re in the car, which is when my condition is at it’s worse. I honestly feel like if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be getting better at all.

It’s amazing how much you can heal when you have people who don’t just not question, but respect what you ask of them.

One of my coworkers

One of my coworker has to be one of the funniest people I’ve ever met and she is always up to give advice and is just kind as well. She doesn’t know about what’s going on with me, but every other issue in my life I will go and talk to her about it. She always listens with an open mind and we have this thing where we air hug, but it’s a joke. We air huge because I wrote once about how I don’t like being hugged by certain people, I just sometimes feel unsafe. She did make a joke of it and now we air hug all the time.

My relationship with my brother

Don’t ever let him see this post. I am really grateful that we have gotten closer again. When we were little we were very close, my Gran used to call us her little Orangutans, because when we were little we used to cling to on another. Then when we became teenagers we did the usual hate one another thing. As we’ve gotten older we’ve become closer again and it is so nice. I’ve realised even though we pay each other out, we have boundaries and we respect each other.It’s nice.
