Why The Boy Who Broke Her Heart Never Deserved It To Begin With
Ellen Tucker

To the boy who broke my best friend's heart,

You were lucky to have her. She gave you all of her spare time and attention. That isn't easy for a girl who is trying to figure her life out and just starting college.

She was open about her feelings. Well, as open as she gets. Until you broke her heart, the first time. I hadn't seen her cry like that in years. She doesn't like to be vulnerable with her emotions and you should know that.

You cheated on her.

That was your first mistake.

She is a lovely person, so she took you back. I didn't like you from that point on. She may have learned to trust you again, but I sure didn't. My guard went up because she let her's down.

Her friends used to tell her how she changed you for the better. Some of her good nature, sarcastic comments, and horribly funny jokes rubbed off on you. She made you a better person. You matured when you were by her side. You had to because of how well she treated you.

You knew she was good for you, yet you still ruined her.

When she went off to college, she decided that your relationship, just months away from being a year, was over. She tried to keep it going the first few weeks per your request, but you were the one to drop off. Not the busy, new college student, but you - the guy in high school.

You didn't let her end things before she left.

Instead, you started flirting with another girl. All while she was away at college, trying to keep you.

You ended the relationship with a phone call while she was walking across campus. She tried to hide her tears. You didn't care. You were free to be yourself again. I wasn't there to comfort her this time, though. Being miles away from her at another college sucks. I wanted to be the shoulder for her to cry on because that's what best friends do.

I hope you're happy with the "man" you are now. You made a mistake hurting my best friend, both times. I hope you grow up soon and learn to not make mistakes like that again.

Honestly, you don't deserve her and you never did.

She deserves a man who is kind, caring, responsible, funny, thoughtful, and loving. Until she finds him, I'll be there for her, helping her forget you ever hurt her.

But she's my best friend and you won't be getting her back.

Sincerely,

The best friend of an amazing person.

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.
