Accept The Unexpected

Love comes when you least expect it.

Accept The Unexpected
Victoria Estreicher

If someone told me five months ago that I was about to have a boyfriend again I would have laughed (very hard) in their face. Ha. Me? In another relationship? Boyfriend? Commitment? Arguments? Hell no. You can say I had suffered from just a little bit of PTSD after what I went through. When I got out of an unhappy long distance relationship, all I wanted was freedom to do what I want, hang out with my best friends and to ultimately be myself again.

When someone comes along when you least expect it, do not be afraid. Accept it. Everything happens for a reason. Opening yourself up to someone after being hurt takes a lot of courage. I realized that I started to break down the walls I put up I before met you. I didn’t want to feel vulnerable or look stupid ever again. I never wanted to put myself in a position to be hurt.

But I instantly found myself telling you my favorite shows on Netflix, my pet peeves, getting butterflies whenever you texted me, asking you for advice and of course telling you my amazing jokes. I started to look forward to hanging out with you every day. That’s when I realized that I had to just let things be. With you, I am not scared to show you who I am. The better I got to know you over the few short weeks before winter break you became the person I wanted to tell everything to. You became the person that I wanted to hang out every day with.

If it weren’t for you I would still be walking around every day as if I didn’t care about anything. I realized that I didn’t have to put on this “I don’t care about anything or anyone” act anymore. I knew I finally met a person I could tell everything to without feeling judged or questioned.

I just want to say thank you for everything you have done for me over the past five months. Meeting you has been the most refreshing feeling that I have felt in a very long time. You have treated me like nothing less than a princess. I want you to know that I have endless appreciation for everything you do for me and I am excited about everything there is to come. Thank you for putting up with me when I am being stubborn, ranting or in a bad mood. You deserve a lot of credit for that.

You came into my life when I expected it at the least. You turned it around in the most amazing ways. I love the fact that I now have someone to share my happiness with. Ever since I met you I am now more accepting of other things that happen to me. I realize that there will never be “right time” for anything. But, I did realize that there is always a right time to share your happiness and love with someone who truly cares for you.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
