" I want you, don't worry about who wants me."

A Quote to Live By

By Zaina Starr

A quote I try to live by and like to share with the ones who are special to me. The ones I share my life with. This is how I make the ones I care about feel special. They are the special ones in my life and they need to be treated as such. These people are the ones I hold close, like my significant other and my kids. That is family.

Everyone wants what they don't have because if they had it, it would not be a want anymore. If they already have it or have had it, then they desire to keep it because they have developed a love for it. This is how I see relationships with the people around you that does not consist of your kids.

Kids are born into our lives and have the position of being first priority in our lives. Others see this and can become jealous. As well as kids seeing parents develop relationships that are a companionship, the kids can become jealous. Everyone wants to be the first priority in someone's life that they care about. It's only human nature.

Every person in our lives we have a different, not better, relationship with. Looking in from an outside point of view, people see someone taking their spot or getting more attention than they are. That is wrong. People are given the attention that is needed when they need it. Not when they want it. There is a difference.

Instead of feeling left out or lacking the attention they desire, people should learn to communicate with their loved ones more. Tell people how they feel, and together come to a resolution to make things better between them, not retaliate against one another. That causes more problems and more chaos.

In conclusion, if someone wants you, then don't worry about who wants them. People always want what they do not have or they want what everyone else wants, what's popular. Kids are always wanted, never forgotten. Parents have to take care of themselves before they can take care of their kids. The kids learn to believe from negative influences, that they are not wanted. No one should ever tell a child they are not wanted. Kids are first, always. Parents want better lives for their kids and sometimes a parent is forced to separate from the kids to do that. Kids will learn how much children mean to the parent when they too become a parent as the struggles of life become real.

"If I want you, then don't worry about who wants me."

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
