You Don't Need To Post Everything Your Boyfriend Does For You On Instagram

Did you know it's possible to be in a completely happy relationship without having to show the world all the expensive things he buys for you?

We get it, you're madly in love with your boyfriend.

We're happy for you, truly. But is it really necessary for you to post every single thing the two of you do together?

Did you know it's possible to be in a completely happy relationship without having to show the world all the expensive things he buys for you? Or that he takes you to the nicest restaurants and surprises you with gold-dipped roses...

Being in an awesome relationship is a very exciting time, but there are intimate experiences that are made to be shared and kept between the two of you. Those are moments when the best memories are made.

But you're too busy broadcasting it all over social media, and you're missing out on the true simplicity of a relationship.

What are you trying to prove? To whom?

Is there an ex-boyfriend that you want to see how good you're getting treated now? Are you trying to prove to your friends that your boyfriend is the best? Do you want your followers to be envious of the luxurious gifts you're receiving?

You may think that you're impressing those on the other side of the screen, but not everyone is going to perceive your relationship as rainbows and butterflies. If there's an over-expression of look how amazingly happy we are, then something tells me you're probably not that happy.

Instagram is a tough game. We've all been there, wanting to post the best pictures and the best angles. But don't drag your boyfriend down with you. Have you ever stopped to think for a second that, maybe, just maybe, he's not comfortable with you posting private text messages between the two of you on your Instagram story?

There are parts of a relationship that are made to be expressed, and there is definitely a time and a place to post pictures with your boyfriend, or even throw up a little appreciation post. But flashing it in everyone's faces that he spoils you and spends all his money on you, isn't necessarily a good look.

We get it, you guys are mad cute. But we don't need to be constantly reminded that you're spoiled.

We're not bitter. We're happy for you, truly.

But enough is enough.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

1128434

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. 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.

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.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

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)

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.
