The girl just sat on the bench, staring off into space. Her thoughts were clouded with depression, nausea, and stress. She thought long and hard, ignoring everything around her as she did so…Someone sat down next to her, but she didn't dare glance in their direction; they might see her distress. She didn't want to hear their, "Are you okay?" or, "What's wrong?" In fact, she didn't know what she wanted them to do. She expected them to take a deep breath, get back up again, and then walk away. Although, that didn't happen. Whoever was next to her, stayed there for hours on end as she thought.
The awkward, uncomfortable feeling eroded from here gut with each passing minute, and she was soon soothed by their presence. Finally, her curiosity getting the best of her, and she looked over at them, but there was nobody there. Next to her was a small note. She picked it up, unfolded it, and read. "It'll be okay, just take a nap." So, that's what she did; she laid down on the bench and slept, long and peacefully. When she awoke, the depressive state that she was in before was no longer there. She read the note again, and the advice wrapped around her heart, enclosing it with warmth.
The girl stood, yawned, and walked away from the bench, leaving the note there for the next unfortunate person. For the first time that day, she smiled, and it stretched from ear to ear; it showed how relaxed she was and how much she just loved her life. She always had, but at that particular moment, it didn't matter that other people were looking at her with their piercing eyes. It didn't matter that she still had many things to do when she got home. All that mattered was that she was joyful, and was going to take everything one step at a time from then on.
AN: Yeah, that advice (It'll be okay, just take a nap) was actually given to me by one of my many teachers. He is a really great instructor, and I thank him, because this advice will always be some that I follow, along with "forgive and forget" from my father. So, shout out to Mr. B. If you are reading this, you know who I am. I hope these words help you just as much as they help me, because when you have a lot of things on your mind, you just need to rest up, and then get back at it. It's really much better then trying to take it all on at once, so try it!
