10 Things You Naturally Chase Away If You're Always Chasing Toxicity

If you let go of the toxic relationships, toxic friendships, etc. You will find the light and in that light you will find yourself.

If not, you will miss out on the following:

1. Happiness

Chasing toxic people will exhaust you of genuine happiness.

2. Love

With toxic people, you will never be able to experience true love. True love is patient and kind and genuine. Toxic love is detrimental and draining- everything real love isn't.

3. Opportunities

Sometimes toxicity can hold you back from bettering yourself. Such as studying or moving abroad, finding yourself, being yourself, and more.

4. Yourself

When you're wrapped up in a toxic relationship, you often lose sight of yourself- who you want to be, your dreams and aspirations, and more. It is so easy to get lost in a relationship and lose sight of yourself.

5. Family

Whether you're in a toxic relationship, toxic work or home environment, or are just generally unhappy, one major thing you can miss out on is family. It is easy to shut the ones you love the most, out as a result of a high stress, high toxic environment.

6. Self Discovery

You deserve to be selfish and being held in toxic captivity will only prevent you from discovering who you really are.

7. Being alive

Sometimes when things are too toxic, they prevent us from being alive because they suck all of the life out of us.

8. Living to your greatest potential

Toxic things and people often get in the way of you on the road to live your best life. Without these toxic things in your life, whatever they are, you have the ability to live your life how you want to, to your standards. Nobody else should matter when you're on the road to self discovery and your best life.

9. Spirituality

When toxic things have a hold on you, it's very hard to turn to whomever you believe in spiritually. It's hard because you feel trapped and locked down by toxicity that you can't even reach out to the one thing that brings you the most joy.

10. Living

When your life is consumed by toxic things and people you devote all of your energy towards that, not towards you and your needs. Ultimately, you miss out on living a life with no regrets and setbacks because you're too concerned about this person or job or college you attend that you forgot what you need to do in order to make yourself feel alive.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
