He'll say he's just friends with like a trillion girls and they're just at the library studying...

Then he'll hook up with her and somehow make you feel bad for him.

He'll act like he's extremely attentive and that he's hearing everything you're saying and taking it at its face value, but then he'll use it all against you and find a way to twist every word you ever said.

He'll say he's clean and he's always been clean, then somewhere down the line, he'll cry afterwards telling you he lied and somehow again he makes you feel bad for him.


Giphy


He'll act like he's trying to better himself and act like he's found it in his heart to be the compassionate loving person you've known him to be at his best.

Then he'll get stressed or bored and show you he's the same immature child he was before.

Giphy


He'll act like he's figured himself out and he's trying to find a way to appreciate himself, but he'll leave the burden to you to constantly support him and build him up.

Giphy


He'll tell you that the two of you have differences, but a great love like this will overcome.

Then he'll say he's thought about it more and it's just impossible...

He'll say that you're his world and that nothing can come between you, but the second he talks to his mother whatever she says is more important than how he feels.

He'll say he's strong enough to deal with the pressure, then he'll crumble under it like the weak man you've known him to be at his worst.


Giphy


He was always the nice guy. Everyone said he was so sweet, but they didn't know how his changes of heart and his dishonesty would come to tear you apart inside. He'll say he's going to be more honest and he knows how to keep from hurting you this time, that his love is enough.

But over time it will fade. Every promise, every word. He'll slowly become more distant, but continue to tell you everything is fine. He'll know exactly what he's doing cause that's what the nice guys do. They lie. They may be "nice" but last I checked nice just means coward who doesn't know how to love himself let alone anyone else.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
