I have wanted to write this blog for months, but some other topic has always gotten in the way.
Today, I bring you the blog about my relationship with toilet paper. My status update not long ago was “I have 31 mega rolls of toilet paper.” My friends who know me well, knew what I was really saying, which is, “I am stressssssed out!”
My relationship to toilet paper is simple really. It developed simply enough. I used to become anxious when there were fewer than four rolls within my reach from the toilet. I was bothered by this anxiety, so I worked hard and got myself to make it to having two rolls without panicking.
Last year, I realized that having a lot of toilet paper seemed to bring with it a sense of security. Then I found myself feeling like I could take on the world as long as I have my arsenal of mega rolls of toilet paper.
I figure there are far worse things than a stack of toilet paper in my bathroom, right?
When I feel overwhelmed or feel the discomfort of facing the unknown, I will always know that I have toilet paper. It is empowering during stressful times. If my brand is on sale, then I will buy toilet paper to help myself to feel better.
I share all of this to share with you that this has been a toilet paper buying week. I live in a small space, and the 29 mega rolls I have already will have to tide me over.
