Thassophile (n.) A love of the sea, someone who loves the sea, ocean.
Since I can remember iv been drawn to the ocean. These something about them that makes me instantly calm. My fondest memories are of my family’s holidays to sea side, hunting for shells and sea glass with my Dad, building sand castles and filling up my bucket with everything I found.
The ocean today is a place I go to get away, relax and feel calm. I’m a worrier, I over think every little thing and recently it’s coursed me to have panic attacks, I never understand what people meant when they talked about what happens to them while there having one.
First your breathing get’s faster and faster Second you can’t breathe, then your mouth goes dry and your hands start to shake. For the rest of the day you feel tired and drained.
Now more than ever iv been yearning for the Ocean. There is something about watching the waves go back and forth looking out to endless ocean that brings perspective. What is truly worth all the worries and what really isn’t.
A spontaneous trip to the beach changed my perspective and iv been feeling so much better! Well I still worry but I feel like its more justified now, I think about it and say to myself “Is it worth it”?
