8 Rupi Kaur Poems To Help You Heal

Everyone experiences heartbreak at some point in his or her life. It's just a fact of life. I personally suffer from anxiety and depression. I think it is important for me to open up and let people know it's okay. Mental illness is not something to be ashamed about. While I take medication and go to therapy, I have found reading to be very comforting to me.

The poems of Rupi Kaur, specifically her book Milk and Honey, seems to bring me peace when nothing else can. Most of her poems are untitled, but they are illustrated and posted on her Instagram.


I find this poem particularly comforting when I feel overwhelmed. You are strong enough to make it through whatever is hurting you today.

2. "what's the greatest lesson a woman can learn?"

Society tells women to be skinnier, to have longer hair, to be anything but what they are. You have always had the tools inside you to love yourself.


When someone breaks your heart and you feel like it's YOUR fault, remember you are so beautifully enough. Do not discount yourself because someone else was not able to love all of you.


There are times in life when others are cruel, and it seems as though no one is on your side. Sometimes the best solution is to reach out so someone else with an act of kindness.


Often when we are in relationships, we get lost. We get lost in the other person. Never forget you are music.


When you have reached your lowest point and think there is no way to pull yourself up, you can pull yourself up. You have the strength. Even when you don't see it.


Everyone doubts his or herself. When you doubt yourself, remember all the beautiful qualities you bring to the world, and don't count the energy that put you here.


Whatever it is you've gone through, you've made it. You're on the other side. Be proud of yourself because you've lived through it. Love yourself. Love yourself every single day. Because you're living despite it all.

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.

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.
