10 Ways Jim Halpert Ruined Your Life

10 Ways Jim Halpert Ruined Your Life

Fact: Jim Halpert is the best

I speak on behalf of anyone who has watched "The Office" when I state that Jim Halpert is one of the funniest and most lovable characters in the history of the modern sitcom. When I watched "The Office" from start to finish (in the span of a week because, yes, the show is that amazing), I determined that no television character or person in real life can ever live up to Jim. Here are a few examples of how I came to that conclusion

1. When he gave Pam the most thoughtful gift ever for the office Secret Santa -- a teapot full of inside jokes and mementos.

They weren't even dating at the time; he was just casually in love with her.

2. When he included a card with the gift that read, "Because at Christmas time you tell people how you feel."

And then took it back because he feared rejection. Only later giving it to her in season nine when they hit a rough patch in their relationship in order to express his neverending love for her.

3. When he made this face after he learned that Pam was pregnant.

(as everyone watching cries with happiness)

4. When he and Pam had the definition of a perfect wedding.

Because who doesn't want to have an impromptu runaway to Niagara Falls with the love of your life?

5. When he basically had any moment with Pam.

We always knew they were destined to be together from the start.

6. When he willingly starred as the villain in Michael's Threat Level Midnight.

He did do a pretty damn good job of portraying such an antagonist.

7. Whenever he looked into the camera and never stopped being his dorky self.

As viewers know, this happened every episode on multiple occasions.

8. Whenever he pranked Dwight.

And nailed it. Every. Single. Time.

9. When he brought back Michael to Dwight's wedding in the series finale.

As if we weren't already emotional.

10. And finally, when he (and the rest of the world) teared up as he said goodbye to Michael in season seven.

If you weren't sad when watching this then you are most definitely lying.

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
