If Where You Are At In Life Is Suppressing You, Get Out — Your Best Life Awaits

You have to be in a place that you thrive in.


Is where you are at holding you back?

No, I'm not saying you have to go across the globe "to find yourself" because how realistic is that, really? It's so much more than a location, it's a mentality as well.

This can mean so many different things.

If you are living in a home that is toxic, make a plan to get out. Notify other loved ones, friends, counselors, teachers, co-workers, doctors, anyone. Make the move for yourself.

If you are at a school that does not make you happy anymore, see what your options are to transfer. Seek guidance from an advisor, family, and financial support.

If you are in a relationship that is horrible for your mind, do what is best for you and leave. Have a conversation with that person or reach out to others to help remove yourself from the situation.

If you are in a bad place mentally, seek the help that will get you out of that dark place. There are more people in the same shoes than you think. Someone will be able to help you get out of the hole you feel you are in. Doctors, therapists, counselors, friends, and family want you to enjoy your life. Just say one sentence, "help me".

Don't think you are confined to one place, one person, or one mindset. This is so false.

You are so much more than your surroundings and you should never feel like you are being held back from your best self or your best life. You are worthy of a happy, fulfilling life, so go get it.

Don't feel that you have to stay in a place you are placed in. You are capable of what you want to achieve no matter what anyone says.

Don't listen to excuses that come from within you or from other people. You can obtain the resources, guidance, and motivation if you just look towards the right places.

Life is so short. And I know you have heard that before, but it truly is. You have to make it what you want it to be. Before you know it, days, months, and years will go by and you won't have changed what you need to. Make small changes now. Or make big changes now. Growth is not supposed to be comfortable, but it's worth it.

You can do this, I promise. Your best life is waiting for you.

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.
