This ain't just BF goals. This is human goals.
How this guy helps his girlfriend with her anxiety issues is so touching and a great idea for anyone who knows someone with the same problem.
He made a jar filled with popsicle sticks. Yes, popsicle sticks.
People with depression and anxiety often don't reach out when they're struggling because they don't want to stress their loved ones with their problems. So he used popsicle sticks to help her when she's alone and needing affirmation.
He said on Reddit they're color coded with affirmations to read like:
"you are worth it"
"take a short break"
"my mind's my kingdom"
When she's stressed, she just grabs an affirmation out of the jar. And he also put a sharpie and blank sticks in there so she can write down happy things when they happen. Then she can remember those times when she's in the storm.
"She sometimes gets so caught in what she's doing, she becomes overwhelmed and doesn't even realize it," he said on Reddit. "I'm hoping that this will help her. Even a little is a lot."
Are you having trouble coping right now. There's always someone who will listen to you.
