Dear Whoever May Be Reading This,

Are you currently the target of a rumor and are trying everything you possibly can to lift yourself up from it? Is that rumor slowly taking a psychological toll on you and you want to tell the truth but you don't know how or are scared that no one will believe you? Well, I'm writing this letter just for you. I'm here to tell you that you're not alone, and none of it is your fault.

Believe me, I understand what this is like. There has been an ongoing rumor about me started by an ex-best friend of mine that many people have believed, and knowing that there are people who believed it set off several mental breakdowns for me recently. It completely destroyed me knowing that there were people out there who believed it and refused to learn the truth. I was so grateful to know that there were still people out there who, when I told them what actually happened, did not believe the rumors and were on my side throughout.

The rumors did not settle with me well, either. Not only did I end up experiencing more mental breakdowns than I used to, but I also noticed myself becoming colder, more distant, and more heartless. I was having a hard time talking about what happened because of how serious this became. However, once I talked to someone about it, I realized that there are a lot more people that were on my side than I realized and thought there would.

And to tell you the truth, you will find your real friends too. There will be people who will believe the rumors and will refuse to learn the truth, but there will also be people who will believe you and will be fully willing to hear the truth. Those are the people that you deserve in your life. There will be people who will believe the rumors, and those are people who are clearly not deserving to be in your life in the first place. But, with every person who believes the rumors, there are at least five people who will believe you, and those are the people you need to keep in your life. Remember to continue surrounding yourself with the people who will stick to your side.

I understand that being the target of a rumor is extremely overwhelming, but I'm here to tell you that you will get through this. One day, everyone will completely forget about the rumor, and so will you, and you will be able to move on with your life. Many people out there tend to not realize that rumors really can take a serious psychological toll on others when they're not true, but those people are not worth your time. You just need to keep your head up high and remember that you will grow beyond the rumors.

Sincerely,

A girl who's the target of a rumor.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
