5 Things To Remember When Going Through Tough Times
Huffington Post

I have had times where sometimes I feel like life gets the best of me. And sometimes it can get the best of my emotions. Someone can only handle so much that it eventually can overcome us. Whether it is something that is affecting school, work, family, or even my personal/social life. Situations like these can be hard and we may forget our own self-worth. However, we have to remember that tough situations is just a part of life and that we will, eventually, overcome it. Even remembering the best things apart of your life can be helpful in the process of trying to overcome. It is best to remember these few things:

1. This will pass. What what your going through now is normal. Tough times happen to everyone at some point in their lives. Things change, and depending on what it is we have to accept this fact. Eventually, you will get through this.

2. Take care of yourself. We forget about ourselves, when going through stressful times, and it can put us in a bad place. Remembering that you matter most is what is important. It''s okay for your happiness to come first before anyone else's. This does not make you selfish, it only means you're looking out for your own being. So be kind to yourself, this can be one of the best ways to promote healing for your mind and body.

3. Stay away from any negativity. The best thing to do during times like these is to cut out any negativity that is going on through your life. Negativity can be toxic to us. Whether it may be a person, addiction, or bad habit, it is best to stay away from these things. Keeping any negativity in your life will only make your situation. Remove the negativity and focus on the positive aspects of your life.

4. Things happen for a reason. Something to keep in mind is that this could be happening for a reason. Tough times can help us become stronger, realize things we had not grasped before, and even lead us to better things in life. Our tough times, can sometimes be seen as "a blessing in disguise."

5. Remember you have friends and family who support you. While going through times like these, it is best to remember that you have loved ones who care for you dearly. Let them in and tell them what you're going through. These people care for you and would do anything to help you overcome what you're going through.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
