An Open Letter To My Owner, Try Not To Cry

"Woof woof...I miss you."

An Open Letter To My Owner, Try Not To Cry
Clyde Troche

Dear Clyde,

I got the letter you wrote me. I enjoyed reading every word in black and white. When are you coming back? I am starting to feel like you have abandoned me. I don't see you as much as I used too. The house is getting lonelier and lonelier as my days past. Nathan is almost gone too. He has one more year of school and he is off. It's never been the same since you left. Your brothers are always on their phones or playing video games. I usually just spend my days laying here watching the sunrise and the sunset. I miss you, Clyde.

Is it time for you to come home now? I've been waiting for so long. In my universe, you have been gone for 32 years. It surprises me that I still remember you. I could never forget you, I still smell your scent around the house as if you are here. I get myself so high to just realize that you aren't here. It sucks when you call your brothers and your parents, and I could hear you on the other side of the phone. I really want to talk to you, but I can't.

My 56th birthday in dog years is coming up in two months. I hope you can make it back home so we can go for a car ride or ice cream. That would be nice. I miss your company. You are always fun to be around. When you are around, you give me so much attention. I wish I had that every day. I wish I was just up in general. I am getting weaker and losing the motivation to do anything. I just want to be a couch potato.

How is school? I heard you are graduating this year. Grandma and I can't wait to be there. Grandma and Grandpa said they are not leaving until they see you cross the stage. I am with them! Hurry though because time is short.

My paws are beginning to hurt, but I love you and miss you bud. Come home very soon! I do not know how much longer I have, but I still got some fight left. When you get back, I promise I will be the happiest dog in the world. I am going to make you feel like a celebrity, but you have to come home. When you get back we can do all the fun things like poop dashing. You remember, when I use the potty outside somewhere and we then run away. We can also play hide and go seek. That was always a fun game. So hurry home so we can play!

Your Lovely Pitbull,

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

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)

Paramount Pictures

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.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
