I think that we are all very familiar with comfort food- you’ve had a terrible day and you just want something that reminds you of warmth and cosiness and everything that’s good in your life. Well, I firmly believe that that isn’t limited to food- we all have comfort clothes that are there for us when we need them most. Maybe you’ve never thought of it, so hopefully this will help you when you need- time for comfort clothes!
By comfort clothes, I don’t necessarily mean a comfortable pair of sweats- I mean something that you can wear wherever you are that offers you a little bit of comfort and mental help. I am not great at coping with things, so I usually need any help that I can get- having something familiar and comforting when I’m not doing too well. For some people, it’s a piece of clothing that something fantastic happened in, for other people, it’s something that is physically comfortable, and for others, it was something that is given to you by someone special.
For me, it is a Lord and Taylor plaid scarf that I received from my parents for Christmas last year. Christmas is inherently a happy and wonderful time for me, and anything that is related to Christmas makes me happy. Although it’s just a scarf and it doesn’t magically fix whatever is going on, it’s kind of like my own security blanket that I can carry with me wherever I am (literally a blanket, because it’s a blanket scarf…). Sometimes I may look a little weird because it’s warmer out and I’ve got this huge blanket scarf with me but if it’s going to help you feel that little bit better it’s worth looking a little out of place.
I think that a lot of us feel like we have to be superheroes and deal with anything that might come our way without so much as a skipped beat or double take, but sometimes things happen and we need a little help. Embrace the comfort!!
