Why It Is Worth The Wait

Sex is one of the most tempting offers we know, but here's why you should consider to wait.

Why It Is Worth The Wait

We see sex in books, movies, history and many other places. We see this so much that it is basically normalized. Many people may believe that sex isn't exactly a "big deal". They believe that laying in the bed with multiple partners is something expected in the relationship, and something that should be shared in each one. When it comes to sex there is so much more than just pleasure, or just something to do when you're bored. There is something way bigger than that happens when you engage sexually with someone.

I know it may seem clique in some ways to want to wait, or that waiting seems almost impossible when you're hormonal. But let me tell you why it's worth it.

1. The One From The First Time

When you decide you want to have sex with someone for the first time, it's more than just being stretched out and pleasure. When you have sex with someone for the first time you're giving them all of you. Your insecurities, your vulnerability, your body, and in most cases your soul, a small piece of you. That sounds scary doesn't it? Giving away so much of you, for another person. I hope that fear encourages you to think about waiting. When you get married, you know they are the one. That's the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, and if they weren't then you wouldn't have married them. Being married holds such a strong intimacy that even betters the moment when you get to share each others vulnerabilities. When you share your body with your spouse it becomes more lax when you know that they are way less likely to leave you after you shared so much.

2. Your Body Is A Temple

Your body is a beautiful temple, whether you're man or women. A temple is something that is treated with tons of respect. It is taken very well care of and is also clean and safe. Your body is a temple. It is something that was created so beautifully and that you have cared so much for. A temple can't stay clean and safe if it allows anyone inside it, and the same goes with your body. STD's and STI's are given in two ways, either by birth or by other sexual partners. Some of those diseases are incurable and some may even cause death. A good way to avoid having those diseases if you weren't born with them is to have one partner. If you don't open yourself up to many different sexual partners there is basically a guarantee that you won't receive one of those diseases.

3. The Pleasure

This is the one we are most uncomfortable to discuss. Yes, sex does have very many spiritual connections, but the pleasure is also important. If you were to have one partner, you would be able to learn and grow when you are both intimate. Having one partner for a long time helps one another learn the others body, and things make them feel good. That is difficult to do when you have someone new, that doesn't know your body.

I know I sound an overbearing parent that is just saying anything they can to avoid teenage pregnancy, however I'm just trying to encourage why waiting can be worth it. Waiting until the day you wed to share your soul with someone can help you in so many ways. Like how it can begin to make you feel comfortable, and how you can avoid getting disease, and lastly how you can learn what you enjoy with someone you love very much. So if you were on the fence on whether or not you should wait, I highly encourage you to. I know sex isn't something many of us want to talk about but just know that if you do wait, it may end up being the best choice you've ever made. And I hope that it was worth the wait.

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.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
