'The Bachelorette' Is A Perfect Example Of Why It's So Important To Guard Your Heart

Reality show or not, love is something that should be careful and not blind.

'The Bachelorette' Is A Perfect Example Of Why It's So Important To Guard Your Heart

This season of 'The Bachelorette' is fraught with controversy. Not only has there been the dramatic plot of Luke P, but now People magazine coming out with the Jed story. These two contestants give examples of why it is necessary to be wary of trusting too fast or too easily.

Hannah Brown fell quick for Luke P, whether it be for his charms or his devotion. However, she has been rather flippant about his many red flags and issues. No matter how much the other guys hate him or how much his actions hurt her, she still keeps him around. Previews for the rest of the season show him going almost to the last episode. Everyone, don't let anyone make false promises or mess with your mind. If the signs are as clear as day, don't look for reasons to stay. Hannah will settle for any amount of emotion or honesty Luke displays, regardless of the whole picture. Be warned, and let this be a lesson. It's spoiled that things do not work out for these two, and if she'd been more careful she could have avoided a lot of drama.

Jed is the soft-spoken musician who comes off very kind and honest. His one red flag was that he admitted to Hannah that he went on the show to have a platform for his music career. Still, his truthfulness coupled with assuring Hannah that he truly had fallen for her, made him seem like a worthy candidate for The Bachelorette's heart. But recent events have shown that he is even less of a match than Luke. His girlfriend has gone to People magazine and told all the things that are surely Hannah's biggest fear. That Jed had told his long-time girlfriend that he was going on the show purely for music and that they would still be together. But he never contacted her after the show ended. It is yet to be seen whether Jed told Hannah the truth during or after the season, but either way, it doesn't look good.

Reality television can certainly bring out the worst in people, as most are just looking for fame and attention. But no one has to go on TV to encounter liars or bad relationships. Some like Luke P will be more clearly obvious to dislike, while others like Jed will surprise us, though the signs are still likely to be there if we look close. That is why trust takes time, and relationships take effort. This doesn't mean to trust people. But we need to guard our hearts. We need to have respect for ourselves and not let anyone lie to us or treat us less than we deserve. I hope Hannah realizes that and she chooses someone who won't mess with her heart. I also hope that this season shows viewers how important it is to be careful and to put trust in the right people.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
