Blood, sweat and tears. But mostly sweat.

24 Things Only People Who Excessively Sweat Will Understand

It's that time of year again. Your skin is sticky, you take two showers a day and you look like you just ran three miles when all you did was try and open up a jar of peanut butter.

For people who sweat a lot, summer, among other things, is your worst enemy. Even on a mildly warm day, you may look like a handle of vodka pulled out of the freezer to condense hours ago. Multiple people come up to you and ask if you just worked out, but really the only marathon you've completed lately is the new season of "Orange is the New Black" on Netflix.

They say, "Don't sweat the small stuff." But what if we sweat everything, all the time, everyday? If you fall under this category of prolific sweating, just know you are not alone. Here are 24 struggles that those who are prone to perspire can relate to:

1. You are one of the few people who prefers winter over summer.

2. Grey t-shirts are your worst enemy.

3. You're always looking for a new way to cool off.

4. You sweat doing the smallest amount of activity.

5. You look like you're dying while working out at the gym.

6. Drinking isn't always an option because you might overheat and die.

7. You wonder why you even bother putting on make up or doing your hair before you go out.

8. Your thighs stick to everything.

Desks, restaurant booths, movie theater seats. Anywhere, really.

9. You never raised your hand in school, and not because you didn't know the answer.

The only real cure to pit stains: not showing them.

10. Wearing anything with a strap (purses, backpacks, bags, etc.) will leave a line of sweat in the spot where the strap is.

11. Your sweat comes from anywhere.

12. You try to wear layers to cover your sweat but it only leaves you more sweaty.

What is this logic?

13. No, you don't have a cold or runny nose, you're just wiping off your upper lip sweat.

14. Showers are your best friend.

15. Until you begin sweating because your shower was too hot.

16. Hand dryers are used exclusively to dry your sweat.

17. You arrive everywhere at least 10 minutes early so you have time to stop sweating.

18. At least you don't ever really need a coat.

19. You still use AC in the winter, and open your car windows.

20. Blow drying your hair in the summer is not even an option.

21. You've been having hot flashes since you were seven years old.

22. You can't sit down for too long or people will get the wrong idea.

No, I didn't sh*t myself, my ass is just sweating.

23. God forbid you have to present in front of people.

24. But don't sweat it! On the bright side, you're super hot. GLOWING, even.

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months.

Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
