The People You Need In Your Life Won't Make You Beg For Love

The People You Need In Your Life Won't Make You Beg For Love

The right one will know exactly what to do and when to do it.

I saw a tweet recently that described every emotion I've felt over the past years. It goes something like this, "Do not teach a man, how to be your man sis. Do not ask him to show you off, do not ask him to text you, do not ask him to care about you, do not ask him to bring you random flowers, do not ask him to plan dates. The right one will know exactly what to do and when to do it."

I have experienced this myself and have heard a lot of friends go through the same thing. I really wish I would have seen this tweet a long time ago so I could have shared this with everyone, including myself. It's so important to teach young boys and girls to not beg for someone's attention. Don't beg someone to give you the time of day. Don't give into their excuses. Don't stay because you're lonely. The right guy or girl will come to sweep you off of their feet. Instead of hurting, find better. Even I have to constantly remind myself of this.

If he/she wants to buy you flowers, they will. If they wanted to go on a date, it would have been planned. If they wanted to talk to you, they would have called. If they're going to cheat, they're going to cheat. Don't wrap yourself up in the moment of your feelings being hurt. Take note of it and try to find better. No one deserves to feel like they weren't good enough for someone else's attention.

It doesn't have to apply to just relationships though. Friendships and family apply to this topic as well. Don't beg for your friends to invite you to stuff. If they're going to make plans without you, let them. The worst invite I have ever received was when people would make plans in front of me and then look at me and say "Oh you can come too if you want". Excuse me? Did I look like I was begging for an invite because I wasn't? Being invited out of pity is way worse than not being invited.

Don't beg for your parents' love. If they don't want to build a relationship, stop trying. It hurts so bad but, it's better to not have someone in your life that's toxic than to beg for that love. Someone loves you. It may not be your parent because of whatever it may be but, someone out there will be there for you.

The lesson behind this is to not beg for someone to care about you. You are worth more than that and there are so many people in this world, you just have to find who your person is. Friendships and relationships come and go, don't settle because you feel as if you're stuck. Set your standards and then strive for better. Wow yourself and let people into your life who aren't the reason you cry yourself to sleep every night.

10 Gifts To Buy Every College Girl Who Has No Idea What She Wants

9. An all-inclusive spring break...

179
views

It's almost the holiday season which means that you are probably looking or going to start looking for presents for those in your life (hmm...this is a hint to not wait until Christmas Eve and you know who you are). You may be making your list and checking it twice just to find out that you have no idea what to buy your college-aged best friend, sister, daughter, niece, or girlfriend because she already has everything that she wants.

She may not be able to tell you exactly what she wants because every time she wants something she just buys it, thanks to her parents making her have a job, so you have no idea what to buy her. I don't want you to start freaking out yet because I'm the college-aged girl who's here to save the day with this list of presents that she will love. (To my family who has no idea what to buy me: all the ideas on this list would make amazing gifts, just saying.)

1. Starbucks gift cards

Starbucks gift cards are always an easy go- to that any college girl will love. Plus we don't feel as bad spending $7+ on a drink when we use a gift card because it's not real money, right?

3. Gift cards to her favorite restaurant!

We are in college and food from our favorite restaurant is a splurge for us on most days.

4. Face masks

Giphy

College is stressful and face masks help us relax while helping us take care of our skin.

6. School supplies

Giphy

In all honesty, the last semester has been heck and all of our school supplies are gone. Please slip some pens and pencils into our stockings and put some of our textbooks for next semester under the tree.

7. Winter clothes and accessories

Odds are we have been suffering through the cold for the last month because all of our winter clothes have been at home. Please do us the solid and help us update our winter wardrobe by adding some cute sweaters, leggings, boots, beanies, scarves, and gloves into the mix.

8. Vera Bradley

We all are probably are in need of a new something from Vera Bradley...even if we don't "need" it we probably want it. *bonus points if you match the pattern to stuff that we already have*

9.  An all-inclusive spring break...

Every college girl's dream is to have a spring break completely paid for and what better time to make this dream come true than at Christmas? (Just joking....maybe.)

10. Time with you. 

In all seriousness, she will love the gift of being able to relax and spend time with you over the holiday season.
