10 Things One Direction Fans Relate To

My love for this boy band will live forever.

Oh boy bands, you have such a special place in my heart. My obsession with boy bands started with the gentlemen of N-Sync and only escalated from there. Nowadays, I find myself listening to bands like 5 Seconds of Summer and One Direction. Recently, news broke that Harry Styles of One Direction is allegedly pursuing a solo career. This news, while exciting, essentially shattered my heart because it meant that one of my favorite bands of all time is unfortunately dwindling away like the rest of the boy bands before them. While I am looking forward to watching Harry succeed in his future endeavors (because let's face it, there's no way Harry Styles is going to fail), I'm feeling a little nostalgic and keep reminiscing on all of things that made me fall in love with One Direction. These feelings led me to this article, so here are X things that One Direction fans can relate to all too well.

1. The feeling you get when one of the boys gets a new girlfriend that isn't you.

2. Struggling to hear the names Liam, Harry, Louis or Niall without immediately thinking of 1D.

3. Mentally preparing for the insanity of concert ticket sales.

4. Group hugs.

5. Re-watching the X Factor video diaries over and over because they bring you joy.

6. Throwing shade at literally anyone who says "I like carrots".

7. It's pronounced "Loo-ee" not "Loo-is"

8. Larry Stylinson isn't real but is real but isn't real.

9. Owning every album that's been released to date.

10. Waiting for the hiatus to be over is like waiting to see pictures of Harry when he cut his hair.

Although Harry might be leaving the band and our world might be ending because of it, at least One Direction fans can all unite and say that they have experienced at least one or all of these feelings and then cry together in peace.

If You've Ever Been Called Overly-Emotional Or Too Sensitive, This Is For You

Despite what they have told you, it's a gift.

Emotional: a word used often nowadays to insult someone for their sensitivity towards a multitude of things.

If you cry happy tears, you're emotional. If you express (even if it's in a healthy way) that something is bothering you, you're sensitive. If your hormones are in a funk and you just happen to be sad one day, you're emotional AND sensitive.

Let me tell you something that goes against everything people have probably ever told you. Being emotional and being sensitive are very, very good things. It's a gift. Your ability to empathize, sympathize, and sensitize yourself to your own situation and to others' situations is a true gift that many people don't possess, therefore many people do not understand.

Never let someone's negativity toward this gift of yours get you down. We are all guilty of bashing something that is unfamiliar to us: something that is different. But take pride in knowing God granted this special gift to you because He believes you will use it to make a difference someday, somehow.

This gift of yours was meant to be utilized. It would not be a part of you if you were not meant to use it. Because of this gift, you will change someone's life someday. You might be the only person that takes a little extra time to listen to someone's struggle when the rest of the world turns their backs.

In a world where a six-figure income is a significant determinant in the career someone pursues, you might be one of the few who decides to donate your time for no income at all. You might be the first friend someone thinks to call when they get good news, simply because they know you will be happy for them. You might be an incredible mother who takes too much time to nurture and raise beautiful children who will one day change the world.

To feel everything with every single part of your being is a truly wonderful thing. You love harder. You smile bigger. You feel more. What a beautiful thing! Could you imagine being the opposite of these things? Insensitive and emotionless?? Both are unhealthy, both aren't nearly as satisfying, and neither will get you anywhere worth going in life.

Imagine how much richer your life is because you love other's so hard. It might mean more heartache, but the reward is always worth the risk. Imagine how much richer your life is because you are overly appreciative of the beauty a simple sunset brings. Imagine how much richer your life is because you can be moved to tears by the lessons of someone else's story.

Embrace every part of who you are and be just that 100%. There will be people who criticize you for the size of your heart. Feel sorry for them. There are people who are dishonest. There are people who are manipulative. There are people who are downright malicious. And the one thing people say to put you down is "you feel too much." Hmm...

Sounds like more of a compliment to me. Just sayin'.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
