Planes had always triggered Jayda’s anxiety ever since she was four, when she took her first plane ride. The loud hum of the engine, all the warnings and safety procedures, and even all the people were enough to get her anxiety going.
As Jayda, Shiloh, and her management team boarded the plane, Jayda couldn’t help but notice how many people were already on the plane.
Shiloh glanced back at Jayda and mouthed, “It will be ok.” She gave a slight smile before turning around again.
For a quick second, Jayda actually believed all would be well, but then the peace of mind was gone, sending her eye into a twitching fit.
“Why me?” Jayda wondered. “Why do I have to have all of these problems that no one else seems to have? I hate my body!” her mind declared.
Fortunately for Jayda, there were only two seats on each side of the aisle. That way it would be just Shiloh and her sitting next to each other. Jayda and Shiloh quickly found their seats and settled in.
“Are you doing alright? I couldn’t help but notice your eye was twitching,” Shiloh whispered.
Shiloh had been Jayda’s friend for so long that Shiloh knew Jayda like the back of her hand. Jayda appreciated her friend and how Shiloh was always looking out for her. Jayda was also thankful for all the times her friend had helped her work through countless anxiety and twitching attacks.
“I’m okay, I guess. I don’t like planes. The sooner I am off the plane, the better I will be.”
“Just take some deep breaths and look out the window. I think we are going to get to see the sunrise. God is taking care and watching out for you, Jayda.”
“Thank you, Shiloh.”
Shiloh held Jayda’s hand to reassure her everything would be fine. Jayda anxiously held her hand, eventually she relaxed, and fell asleep.
