Being In Love Is Scary, But We All Should Experience It

Being In Love Is Scary, But We All Should Experience It

When you meet the person who makes you think a little bit differently about the world and smiles wider than ever before, you know that you've met your match.


Love is a feeling that you can't describe is at captivates every part of your body and puts you into the absolute best mood which could turn into emotions that you cannot necessarily control. When you meet the person who makes you think a little bit differently about the world and smiles wider than ever before, you know that you've met your match. But love is difficult, it makes you do impulsive things that you would not necessarily do if you were single due to loving the person more than you could ever imagine. Throughout the course of our lives we all meet people who change us and the way that we think of others as well as ourselves, and sometimes we fall in love with them. This person becomes your best friend and your go-to with just about anything that happens throughout your day and any exciting news you want to share. With all of these positive aspects of love, there are some negative ones that come with it as well.

The break up is probably the most difficult part of being in love because it is possible and could happen to you and your special someone. As you both may be on cloud nine, life gets in the way sometimes and being apart is easier than being together which sounds confusing but makes sense when "the talk" happens. Losing someone in your life is always a difficult task to experience, yet it makes us stronger and more likely to look for someone with the qualities we enjoy rather than despise. Your love may not work out with the person that you want to be with, which is ok although it feels the worst at the moment. The love that you hold with that person will never go away, they will always be a part of your life even if they aren't present in it. That person was a part of your life for a reason, and you'll always hold a special place for them in your heart.

Every experience in your life is a fold in your book of chapters that you'll be writing for your own story throughout the years that you live on this earth. Some of these chapters will have repetition as you find yourself in similar situations, yet you'll also undergo changes within yourself and your personality which will only help you for the better. Every day we are constantly moving and living our lives on this unpredictable earth with so many other aspects that are not under our control. Just always remember that change is completely ok, and you will be absolutely fine. Many people come and go, but you are always going to have that place in your heart for the ones you care about the most. Hold on to your memories and the things that make you happy because no one could take those away from you. It's okay to remember and think back to different times with people of your past, reflect in a positive way and applaud your progress.

Find love, allow yourself to be vulnerable and let people into your life because you never know what could happen. Yes, you may find yourself heartbroken a few times and regret your involvement in a relationship, but try not to be hard on yourself because these experiences will only shape you into your future self. Make every day a positive one and wake up with the best intentions and amazing goals.

Your love will come eventually, keep writing the chapters of your book and the rest will unfold on its own.

An Open Letter To My Boyfriend's Mom

A simple thank you is not enough.

Your son and I have been dating a while now and I just wanted to thank you for everything.

Wow, where do I start? Ever since the day your son brought me into your home you have shown me nothing but kindness. I have not one negative thought about you and I am truly thankful for that. I first and foremost want to thank you for welcoming me with open arms. There are horror stories of mothers resenting their son's girlfriends and I am blessed there is no resentment or harsh feelings.

Thank you for treating me like one of your children, with so much love but knowing exactly when to tease me.

Thank you for sticking up for me when your son teases me, even though I know it’s all in good fun it's always comforting knowing you have someone by your side.

Thank you for raising a man who respects women and knows how to take responsibility of mistakes and not a boy who is immature and doesn’t take responsibility.

Thank you for always including me in family affairs, I may not be blood family but you do everything you can to make sure I feel like I am.

Thank you for letting me make memories with your family.

There is nothing I value more in this world then memories with friends and family and I am thankful you want and are willing to include me in yours. I have so much to thank you for my thoughts keep running together.

The most important thing I have to thank you for is for trusting me with your son. I know how precious and valuable he is and I won't break his heart. I will do everything I can to make him happy. This means more than you could ever imagine and I promise I will never break your trust.

The second most important thing I must thank you for is for accepting me for who I am. Never have you ever wished I looked like another girl or acted like another girl. You simply love and care for me and that’s all I could ever ask. Every person in this world is a unique different person and understanding that means a lot.

The third most important thing I must thank you is teaching me how to one day in the future treat a potential girlfriend that I may interact with as a mother. I am not a mother, but I one day plan to be. If I ever have a son it is because of how you treated me that I am able to be a humble loving mother to this new face that could one day walk into my door. How you have treated me has taught me how I should one day be in the future and I thank you for that.

This may seem all over the place but that’s how my brain gets when I try and thank you for everything you have done for me. It’s all so much and even the little things are so important so I promise my scattered thoughts are all with good intentions and not meant to bombard you. I just want to get the idea across to you that you are important and special to me and everything you do does not go unnoticed.

Both Guys And Girls Have It Hard Finding Love, Stop Complaining

Nothing is easy, so stop throwing your own pity party.


Love is in the air, and so is complaining. Gosh, sometimes being around young adults is exhausting. Basically, all you do is complain about money, or how you are still single/bashing your s/o. When I'm around either my fellow single ladies (or men) the same sort of concept always comes up. "[Insert gender here] have it so easy". Um...sorry bro, that's not the case.

From a girl's point of view, yeah, we may have it easy because we can doll ourselves up with makeup, and flaunt our physical features. But that doesn't mean we have men running toward us left and right. Some guys are jerks and don't know how to treat women. Some guys just want girls for sex, or for their body in general. Do we want that? Yes and no, but when it comes to settling down, that's the tricky part.

From a guy's point of view (now I am clearly not a guy, but this is just an estimate of what I have gathered from then) they have no makeup which already puts girls at an advantage. Girls just wanting to "hit and run", or wanting to sleep around a bit/be free and not committed while you want something more, psycho ex-girlfriends, and her friends. The list could go on, and it gets more complicated as it goes.

As you can probably see by now, guys and girls don't have it easy. The struggles are different, but all are pretty valid in my opinion. Though this article is like a rant, I hope that you know to think twice about saying "who has it better" because in reality, (love related or not) no one has it easy, and the life that others display has a lot more behind it than meets the eye.
