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.

Why I Will Tell My Children To Wait Until Marriage

Abstinence isn't just a religious thing.

Having grown up in the Bible Belt, I was an avid church goer as a child. Both the church and my parents preached at me that "abstinence is key." They always just said that you shouldn't do anything with someone before you're married because it is just the right thing to do. I always heard that it was just frowned upon, I didn't know that it could be devastating in the future.

Many of us don't wait until marriage. In today's society, abstinence isn't exactly the top priority of our generation. Personally, I didn't wait and fell into the demographic of being "normal." I thought maybe I could find love. I believe most girls convince themselves they can marry just about anyone down the road because it helps us accept what we do. When you are doing what everyone around you seems to be doing, it makes it feel as though it isn't as "wrong" as you thought it was when you are growing up.

Until I met the love of my life, that was my mindset. It wasn't necessarily wrong and it didn't impact anyone other than myself. It turns out I was very wrong. After numerous liars and jerks, I finally found the man that I have always wanted. The guy who gives us that dream that we all have as little girls, but gave up on as we grew older. Neither of us waited until marriage, and neither of us thought of each other. We didn't know each other until we started dating, but we didn't think of the one that we would one day marry. I never knew how someone's past could devastate me. I struggle daily with insecurities and comparisons to the girls he has been with. I don't want to, but I can't help it. I know that he feels the same way about my past. It causes distrust in a society where distrust is already easy enough to have. I never wanted to be that girl that compared myself to others, but it's hard not to think about the other girls and if they were better or if he still thinks about them.

This is why I will tell my children to wait. Not just because God says so, but because it does involve someone other than themselves. It hurts the one they end up marrying. It hurts them later in life. I want my children to do their part of not instilling this lack of confidence that I find myself struggling with. Maybe we can raise our children to be a generation where sex isn't just sex, and it means something again. If abstinence isn't appealing to you because of God, maybe it can appeal to you when you think of that dream guy or girl. Wait for him. Wait for her. Wait for yourself.

Ding dong, everyone's lonely.


I can hear the bells chiming in the distance and in between the chimes are the sounds of my family members asking whether or not I have a significant other.

Urban Dictionary: During the Fall and Winter months people who would normally rather be single or promiscuous find themselves along with the rest of the world desiring to be "Cuffed" or tied down by a serious relationship. The cold weather and prolonged indoor activity cause singles to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed.

To celebrate this holiday season, here are some gifs you can show your family members to remind them once again that someone hasn't put a ring on it.

1. Do you consider this in a relationship?

2. I'm just trying to be like Adele

3. Or like Honey Boo Boo

4. If the game works, it works.

5. Who needs to be in a relationship when you have yourself 

6. Too much stress being in a relationship

7. Do you see a ring on it? I didn't think so...

8. Do I have anyone with me?

9. You may not have someONE, but you do have wine

10.  As if

12.  And SpongeBob

13.  There's so much room in the tub for bubbles when there's only one person inside
