An Open Letter To The Guy Who Thought I Needed Him

I don't miss you, but I still want to see you happy.

The Break Up Survival Guide

To the guy that thought I needed him,

" You made my heart break, and that made me who I am."

Well I bet you are suprised that I am writing something dedicated to you, because we both know I do not owe you anything. The best thing about this letter though, is that it isn't for you, it's for me. I can finally make sure nothing is left unsaid and move on with my life, making sure you are not included in it. The first mistake you made was thinking that I needed you, when truth is I wanted you yes, but I am here stronger than ever writing this because I don't need you, never have and never will.

You thought because of my feelings for you that no matter what you did I would never leave. You thought that you could talk to as many other girls as possible, and that I would just stick around, well look how that turned out for you. As much anger and sadness I once felt, I am happier than ever, and I forgive you.

Even after everything I wish you nothing but the best, because you are not a bad guy. Yes, you made some bad choices, but I think you just need to accept the fact that you need to be single and figure out what you want because leaving a trail of broken hearts isn't who you are.

I just want to end this by saying prove to yourself that you are the guy that I know you can be. Though we went through some nasty times, we had so many good ones, and the start of what we were was picture perfect. Put your heart into the next relationship you get into, because I know you put your heart into everything else, don't rush into anything, and make sure they make you happy.

Thanks for the memories and thank you for allowing me to prove to myself that I can pick myself right back up when someone pushes me down.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • 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.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
