You deserve to heal.

5 Reasons It's Time To Let Go
Sorority Life

1. You owe to yourself.

To make a relationship work it takes two, we all know that; however, when a relationship ends the only person that solely matters is you. Your safety, your sanity, and your emotional well-being. Often hanging onto something that isn't there after a break up interferes significantly with your well-being and you deserve to walk away feeling stronger. Regardless of how wonderful or how awful the relationship is, you will always deserve the best and when you let go, you'll realize it.

2. There are better things out there for you.

Have you ever heard of the saying "once one door closes, another one opens?" A break up is a perfect example of this saying because although the pain is initially unbearable it opens up doors to countless opportunities. After accepting the fact that the relationship has ended, you can allow yourself to discover things you may not have while in the relationship. Once you let go, you can begin to embrace all the adventures and experiences life will throw your way.

3. You can allow yourself to learn from it.

With every relationship comes learning and growth, but once a break up happens you can take all the knowledge you've gathered and you can apply those learning experiences in your future relationships. When a relationship fails, it teaches you what to do and what not to do in the future to allow for a more successful relationship.

4. You deserve to be valued.

Relationships end for a reason, whatever the reason they may be you always deserve to be valued. Often relationships end because there is a lack of communication, or trust issues or betrayal, or even a lack of value shown between one another. So, if a relationship is failing for any of those reasons just keep telling yourself that you deserve someone who values you for everything you're worth. And you're worth so much more than one relationship that wasn't the right one for you.

5. Make yourself a priority.

A major reason why relationships often don't work is because someone isn't ready. It's said that we can't be in a relationship until we are happy with ourselves. If you are struggling with a heartbreak, take it as an opportunity to better yourself. The only person you have to worry about right now is you, and the opportunities to better yourself are endless. You deserve to pamper yourself and make yourself someone you love because, in the end, that's all that matters.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
