I told you everything was okay and I was lying. Whether you picked up on it or not, I just want you to know that. It's something that I wasn't going to admit and I never will, at least to you anyway.

There's nothing I could do in order to change our the course of our lives went. Trust me, I don't know if I want to change it. There was a time where I wanted you to be here, I wanted to see your face when you look me in the eye. I wanted to hear your voice because it had always brightened my day. Maybe I had thought about it more than I should have but I was feeling hopeful that maybe we would have been a thing. A girl was just dreaming and I found that out.

I want you to know that even though my heart is full and shattered, I hold nothing against you. You deserve to live your life however way you chose and if that doesn't include me then so be it. What could I do? You want someone else and that's perfectly fine. I'm happy that you have found someone who will brighten you life even if it darkens mine.

We crushed and we crushed hard but maybe I put my heart into it more so than you. That's what I do, when I fall hard for someone I end up breaking my own heart when it doesn't work out. I did it last year and I happened to do it again. There's nothing wrong with shattering like glass in order to repair yourself back up again.

I'll admit that I am thankful for you and you don't even know that. Last year I had a terrible experience of a guy treating me like I didn't matter to him when I honestly thought I did. I dug myself into a whole and became depressed and alone over the situation. When I finally got around to talking to you it helped me climb out onto higher ground. Maybe that's why I'm so hurt, I had you build me up only to spiral back down except I didn't fall completely. I know you cared for me in your own way and you probably still do.

I don't hate you nor do I want things to end up awkward. Sure, they will be awkward considering we have mutual friends but I have to put myself past it. If you want to talk to me about whatever your going through and your relationship, that's fine. I just want you to know that I lied to you the other day.

I told you everything was cool, I told you everything was fine. In all honestly, I cried my eyes out probably for two hours on and off because I was hurting. It's not your fault and it's not mine either. I just had a thought in my head that maybe you and I could come together and be something. I broke my own heart and that's fine. I pick up the pieces and figure out a way to carry on. After all, I've done that before and I can do it again.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
