One of my favorite Korean products is honey citron tea. It’s less like a tea and more like a marmalade, but you add hot water, so it’s like a tea. K bought this and the honey plum tea you see on the right, which I really didn’t like recently. It tasted like medicine or a melted Jolly Rancher to me and not in a good way. Honey citron tea is one of my favorites and is great for your immune system. It’s something I like to drink in the winter. It has become a comfort “food” in a way for me.
Today was extremely stressful. One thing I can’t deal with, like many people I’m sure, is finances. I’ve never had delinquencies or anything in any payments for any loan or what not, but changes in finances are extremely stressful for me. Now that I have a full-time job, I feel less stress when it comes to finances, but the occasional change just tears me apart.
Recently, I had to reapply for my student loan repayment plan. I haven’t had to actually pay anything for the past year and it’s helped out a lot. Well, I got a message from the loan company today. Now, starting next year, I’m going to have to start paying quite a bit on it. I have felt terrible all day about this and couldn’t concentrate on work for a good portion of the day. When something stresses me out, I can do nothing until I figure out a way to address my anxieties. During moments like this, I often make rash decisions and go from one idea to the next, my mind darting all over the place. At one point today, I was having difficulty breathing and I started to make a wheezing sound. In this regard, today was not a good day for me.
Usually when I’m really anxious like this I just keep it all inside and then K thinks I’m mad at him or that he did something to make me angry, which is not the case. I never mean to take my anxieties out on him, but it happens and it makes our lives hell. Today, I decided to take another route and told him exactly what was stressing me out today and asked him to please sit with me and help me figure out a financial plan. This helped so much and I don’t feel as worried about it all. It’s important to have people to turn to and lean on in your everyday life. I’m incredibly grateful that I have him in my life.
Hope your day was a little less stressful than mine 🙂
