Why You Shouldn't Let Your Relationship Become Your Entire Life
At the moment, my friend is in a relationship with a girl in my class, and have been for around four months. I'm very happy for them (they had both been through horrible breakups in the past, and are both very lovely people), but throughout these few months, they have slowly become obsessed with each other.
Once Upon a Friendship
We were all friends once upon a time. We played a game somewhat like kick ball, and we were the scrappy kids, which meant we looked out for each other. My first friend (let's call him Mudpie) went way back with me. He introduced me to beer, head lice, ultimate fighting strategies, and though neither of us would never admit to a word of it, we figured someday we'd get married and live happily ever after. Mudpie was my first real friend ever, and at around nine years old, we were highly known to be wandering around his small town about fifteen minutes from my house, drunk and stirring up whatever trouble we could find. Mudpie can be returned to later though.
Why I Stayed, and Why I Walked Away
Just inches of your face, the stubble on your cheek in the driver's side mirror of a car I didn't recognize. That was all it took for me to know it was you.
Love is the Only Answer
Love is the only answer. One of the greatest challenges in life is to stop searching externally for validation and approval from other individuals. One of the struggles in life is becoming self-reliant, self-sufficient, and self-determined to reach your full potential.
Kiss...It is a Tradition!
Oh Mistletoe! We have grown up seeing it as a symbol of love. Find yourself under the Mistletoe and you will receive a kiss from someone you love. But, have you ever wondered why we have this Christmas tradition?
Establish Clarity & Focus In Love Relationships
Clarity is imperative in having a peak performance relationship. Successful relationships require the masculine and feminine to be in alignment with their future goals.
Unstable and Out of Control
Do you ever find yourself wondering how the people around you can keep their cool even when life happens? Are you someone who can't quite deal with unfortunate events or situations you have no control over? If you answered "yes" then this article is for you. I would like to share my life experience with each of you, and how I manage to overcome.
'A Christmas Miracle'
I’m going to be telling you about how my world changed from one direct message off of Instagram. I have always been the shy, but outgoing type. When it comes to guys I like, I don’t necessarily try and talk to them. I always think I’m going to embarrass myself. So to save from making a fool out of myself, I just drool over my crush from a distance. I know, I know that sounds weird. My friends always tell me to go for it and talk to the guy, but I’d rather not. For awhile I didn’t have a crush, but I was open to the idea of talking and getting to know some guys. Around December of 2016 I woke up in the middle of the night. I wake up randomly sometimes for no reason. Since I was awake, I thought I would go on my phone and check my notifications. I go on Instagram and I see someone has messaged me. I open it and it’s a guy saying “Hello beautiful:).” I’ve never met or seen this dude, but it shows that people I know, and follow, know him too. I look at his pictures, and I see that he is cute. I decide that it wouldn’t hurt to text back, but boy was I wrong about that.
Nikki Reed And Ian Somerhalder Issue Statement After That Controversial Birth Control Story
When Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder shared a story about their decision to start a family on Dr. Berlin's Informed Pregnancy Podcast, they never expected it would spiral out of control. After all, it was simply a retelling of what they thought was a funny moment in their lives. Twilight's Reed was laughing when she said her husband threw out all of her birth control pills once they decided to start a family, but it was Somerhalder's comments that stirred up controversy among the couple's fans as well as journalists.
I used to think that people trickled back into our lives due to mercury in retrograde. Turns out it’s just because relationships are cyclical. People are cycles. Not to get all zen here, because I have traded that ideology in for cynicism, but I understand why the past won’t stay in the past.
Let's Get Political
As Millennials I hate generational discussions, so I'm not going to say "as millennials." But as a generation that has grown up with Google, we're connected in a new way. The “weird kid” in town who talks funny and dresses in clothes he's not supposed to finds out pretty quickly that he's actually a she and that many people are. She's not a freak, she's part of a group of people with a rich history of cultural acceptance and rejection around the globe, rooted in the strength of people just like her. The kid who holds a razor to his wrist, because he'd rather kill himself than to become the pedophile he thinks he secretly is finds out he's actually got an OCD that involves bad thoughts, and that many people struggle with this in varying degrees and that it is treatable with time, effort, and medication. The kid finds out he's not a villain, he's just a broken boy who can relax into that and return to being happy. If they were alone, dealing with the things inside their minds and bodies, and their parents, or teachers, or bosses, or bullies, or coworkers, or classmates, or brothers, or sisters, were to tell them "stop being weird", "just deal with it", "like us", then maybe they would stop. The fight's not worth it when you're just fighting for you and your weird mind. But when you find out that you're one of millions struggling, and that for as far as history remembers, all of those individuals have taken the advice and pushed it down, just like you considered doing. When you find out that nothing has changed, and that people like you haven't stopped struggling. When you see those people telling their stories, on Facebook, on Twitter, on Reddit, on vlogs, on playgrounds, in workplaces. When you see people like you, struggling, like you, you realise the fight isn't about your own weird mind. That's when the girl that is called a guy decides she can't just put on boys clothes and so she doesn't. That's when she decides she's not going to date that guy everyone wants her to and instead she'll ask her friend Jodie. That's when the boy scared of his own head decides he's not going crazy, he's getting sick, and that he isn't to isolate, he's to stand up and get help. Because the fight isn't for the self anymore. It's for everyone out there, just like you, not sure if they should fight or not. So you stand and fight so they don't have to, but they'll do the same for you. We were divided and told we were fucked up until we just acted like we weren't. But now we're all best friends on Twitter dot com and we're all fucked up and super hot and we're fucking fighting that good fight.
