A Minty Fresh Reaction

, , , | Hopeless | June 29, 2016

(It’s been a rough several days, and I’m having a panic attack a few minutes before class. A close friend of mine from that class finds me and gets me some water, and we sit and talk for a few minutes before going in together. Meanwhile, a complete stranger has been studying a few feet away, and suddenly she approaches me.)

Stranger: “Hey, I don’t know much about what’s going on, but I overheard your conversation, and I wanted to offer you some of these mints. I’ve had anxiety issues my whole life and they’ve gotten me through a lot.”

(I declined the offer, but I was really grateful for her kindness and I don’t know if I’ve ever loved my school more than I did in that moment.)
