Stop Blaming The Other Woman And Blame The One Who's Actually Guilty — Him

Never settle for a cheater.

With the whole Jordyn Woods, Kardashian, and Tristian Thompson scandal in the news recently, it made me realize something. I realized a lot of the time when a guy cheats on his wife or girlfriend, the wife or girlfriend is quick to blame the other woman instead of the guy. I think that it's time to start holding the man who cheats and not just blame the cheating on the other woman.

Even though Tristian may have cheated on Khloe Kardashian (his girlfriend), the media was quick to focus its attack on Jordyn Woods. Sure, if Tristian cheated on Khloe with Jordyn, then yes, Jordyn did break the girl code of friendship. However, that doesn't excuse Tristian for his actions. He still cheated and should be held to at least the same criticism that Jordyn was.

It seems like whenever cheating is presented in movies, books, or in real life, the girl who is cheated on quickly blames the other woman. The girl jumps to the conclusion that the other woman must have tricked the boyfriend or husband into cheating. The man is somehow above cheating and could not possibly have ever wanted it. Apparently, women think that men are incapable of controlling themselves, and this kind of attitude needs to stop. If a man cheated, then he cheated. It's that simple. Men are just as in control of their actions as any woman, so they should be held to the same standards.

Some of the times where a man cheats, the other woman might not have even known that he had a girlfriend or wife. I think that jumping to conclusions about what happened is a bad idea. For all you know, the women might have been told that she was his exclusive girlfriend.

The man is always to blame because he knew what he was doing and cheated anyway.

Furthermore, I absolutely hate it if a boy cheats and his girlfriend takes him back. If someone cheated, then that person doesn't care enough about you. They made the decision that your relationship was less important than that fling they had. Never take back someone who doesn't value your relationship. Dump them, and move on. Wait for someone who values you and takes the relationship as seriously as you do.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
