20 Fights With Yourself That Everyone Can Relate With

I don't know about you, but I fight with myself on a daily basis.

It is like there are two voices in my head, one good and one bad, that constantly fight with each other. It feels like it looks something like this:

Mostly about the choices in my life, most of which are unimportant. As a young adult, they have to do with boys, diet, lifestyle choices, and stuff like that.

Sometimes, however, they have to do with very important choices, like what career to choose or when to move out.

I catch myself fighting these battles every day and it actually makes me laugh. Only because I know that 99 percent of the time, I am going to lose those battles. For example:


1. You really need to start eating better v. It's totally okay to eat a second dinner

2. You need to get a gym membership v. You've been pulling guys with the same body for years

3. Tanning can cause cancer you should stop v. But... tanning is life

4. You are what you eat girl v. I'm still alive, aren't I?


5. It's important to save your money v. *Donna Meagle voice* "TREAT YO' SELF"

6. *Runs a $30 tab at the bar* v. "Oh, I should only put $5 in my gas tank to save"

7. Comes up with a savings plan and budget v. Lives off $2.64 until next paycheck

Social Life

8. You need to chill, you have been being too crazy lately v. F*ck it, you only live once right?

9. You should go hang out with your friends v. But, my bed is so comfy!!!

10. Get outside more! v. Yes, Netflix, I am still watching

11. I am only having one drink tonight v. *three hours later*


12. I'm going to focus on me right now v. *cute person talks to me*

13. I am officially done with them v. *Says hi to me* *forgets everything*

14. *To my friends* "You deserve better, don't let them treat you like that" v. *ignores own advice*

15. Realizes that I always go for people who I know will treat me wrong and need to change my ways v. Goes for the same kind of people

16. I don't want to be in a relationship v. It'd be nice to have someone to cuddle with right now*

17. *Gets in a new relationship* Don't act crazy!!! v. *Acts crazy*

Every Day Life

18. You are always on your phone v. *refreshes Snapchat for the fifth time*

19. You should donate some clothes you wear the same ten things anyways v. *looks at shirt from 2011* "But, maybe I can wear it for Halloween or something"

20. Stop making impulsive decisions you always regret it v. *instantly makes an impulsive decision* "Crap."

This is a rather short list of internal struggles I have with myself daily, but they are easily the most frequent ones.

It's humorous to me how we know that some of the decisions we are making are not the best ones, yet we make them regardless.

Is it because we are masters of self-destruction? Creatures of habit? Or do we just like to live life on the edge?

When will we ever learn?

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
