10 Quotes To Help You Get Out Of A Breakup Funk

1. "No girl should ever forget that she doesn't need anyone who doesn't need her." -Marilyn Monroe

The worst thing you can do is continue to revolve your world around a person who doesn't make you their main priority. Save your time for someone who will treat you like the queen you are.

2. "Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together." -Elizabeth Taylor

Moving on from a relationship or fling can be difficult. Your confidence is super low, and all you want to do is lay in bed with a bowl of cookie dough ice cream and binge on Netflix. However, this just leads to a drawn out pity party and prevents you from moving on. Go about your day as you normally would. See your friends. Keep busy. Create a new "normal" for yourself without your ex, and you will feel like yourself in no time.

3. "Even if it ends badly it's worth it if it made you feel something, if it taught you something." -Taylor Swift

Every person you date teaches you another lesson about what you're looking for in a significant other. They add to your character and also teach you about yourself. Never regret a past relationship, because it made you who you are today.

4. "I will not try to convince you to love me, to respect me, to commit to me. I deserve better than that; I AM BETTER THAN THAT...Goodbye." - Steve Maraboli, Unapologically you: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

If you feel your significant other pulling away, and you find yourself chasing after them, it is definitely time to bow out. You deserve to be loved. If they want you to beg for it then they don't deserve your time.

5."I cannot compromise my respect for your love. You can keep your love, I will keep my respect." -Amit Kalantri

You are more important than your relationship. If you feel as though you are sacrificing yourself to satisfy someone else, move on.

6. "Just because a relationship ends, doesn't mean it's not worth having." -Sarah Mlynowski

Don't give up on relationships all together just because your last one did not go as planned. Someone else will be able to make you feel that spark again.

7. "One day they'll realize they lost a diamond while playing with worthless stones." -Turcois Ominek

Being dumped for another person has to be one of the worst feelings on the planet. No one wants to feel as though they were replaced by someone else deemed "better." Well, they are not better. And eventually your ex will realize that.

8. "When my absence doesn't alter your life, the my presence has no meaning in it." -unknown

If the person you're seeing doesn't mind being away from you, then don't give them the satisfaction of seeing you when they want to.

9. "You lose yourself trying to hold onto someone who doesn't care about Iosing you." -Tablo

Don't change yourself to keep someone else in your life. It's a big world. Someone else will cherish you for who you are.

10. "If you're brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello." -Paulo Coehlo, author

Being the one to pull the plug on a relationship can be just as hard as being dumped. Are you making the right decision? Will you regret it? Will you be lonely? If you are willing to take that chance and walk away from something that isn't working, you will find happiness.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
