PSA: Your Worth Is NOT Defined By Your Relationship Status, Yes, EVEN During Cuffing Season

Cuffing season is here, ladies and gentlemen! This means it's the time of year that everyone seeks out a significant other simply because we're freezing and want to be held — all for the convenience of having that extra bit of warmth and reassurance that we deserve to be loved.

However, this time of year exposes us to some un-pleasantries when some achieve this "cuffing" goal and some don't. Feelings of self-doubt, worthlessness, and loneliness spike during this time simply because some weren't "lucky" enough to get cuffed. We get lonely and eat more so we can bulk up and keep warm with winter weight. We eventually sink into some type of depression and convince ourselves that we're not good enough when we see our reflections.

If you happen to fall into this category, just remember that it'll be OK. You don't need another person to hold you and give you a kiss goodnight. Because ultimately, it's important to remember that you will always be enough for someone, even if that someone is yourself.

At the end of the day, cuffing season is mainly for convenience, because according to 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 causes singles to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed.

But, PLEASE don't let a season driven by desperation and low-key promiscuity, and not love, negatively affect your life and how you see yourself.

How many cuffing season romances actually turn out to be successful in the long run? Very few.

The convenience diminishes as the weather gets warmer. After all, the warmer months encourage spring cleaning and this allows people to wash themselves of their seasonal choices and revert back to their old ways, which for the most part, is totally fine.

However, if you genuinely want a relationship while cuffing season is underway, my advice is to be careful. While they may seem genuine and sweet at the time, there's always the possibility of it being too good to be true. Make sure you're on the same page with whoever you get involved with — it might save you a lot of heartache when springtime comes around.

Regardless of whether or not you get cuffed this year, remember your self-worth.

Remember to love yourself. You don't need another person to feel complete, successful, or to validate your worth.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.
