Even Wonder Woman Needs Affection

Even Wonder Woman Needs Affection

Superpowers don't exempt you from feeling lonely.

It is funny about some people to take being strong as in, that person doesn't need affection and does not get lonely.

People take being content as in never longing for love or never having the thought of walking down a dirt run, smelling the fresh burnt Autumn leaves, holding the hand of your best friend and the love of your life.

Being strong means having the strength to withstand pressure, being able the endurance the trails and tribulation while remaining your faith in God and faith in yourself.

Being content means that you are confident within yourself and that you do not need someone telling in Goodnight and Goodmorning gorgeous every day. Being content means that you have fun with yourself and your friends. Being content means that you are satisfied and in complete in happiness no matter what stage you in at life.

However, saying all this, just because you are content and strong doesn't mean you long for affection from a guy. Sometimes you are surrounded by people are in a relationship, getting engaged, adding little members to their family, etc. Sometimes you just want to come home to after a long day and talk about everything and drink some coffee, sometimes you do not want to talk you just want a bear hug.

Right now it is not about a boyfriend, right now, I just want a good guy friend. Yes, I am strong, I am content, but little affection would not hurt.

To Everyone Who Hasn't Had Sex Yet, Wait For Marriage, It's The Right Move

If you have not had sex yet, wait.


Premarital sex is not a new concept, no matter how much people like to pretend it is. You can trace scripture and historical texts back thousands of year to see that lust and fornication have been a problem since… well, since we humans have been problems.

They tell you in sex ed that sex causes you to form a bond with someone. They throw some big chemical names at you that are apparently in your body and cause that emotional attachment to happen, then you move on (or back to) how important condoms are and why STDs are so scary.

As a middle schooler or teenager, you can't understand what it means to become permanently connected to someone as a result of a quick, physical act.

If you haven't even had your first kiss, you really can't imagine what it's like to develop such a complex and intimate connection with someone because you have yet to feel the butterflies in your stomach from a kiss. So you really don't know what it's like to have a whole different type of feeling in your stomach.

You never forget your first love. It's one of the most cliche things you consistently hear, but it's true. Ask anyone. I guarantee your parents can still spurt out their first love's name in a few seconds. And most people never forget their first time. I know all my friends can recount that often awkward and slightly terrifying moment as if it happened an hour ago. When you mix those two, especially if you are in your teens, oh boy.

You never forget that. No matter how hard you try.

Everything you hear about sex is true: it's amazing, fantastic, life-changing, etc. There's a reason people have done it as frequently as they do, for as long as they have. But every time you sleep with someone, you leave a piece of yourself with them. Every time you choose to take that final physical step with someone, you cannot go back and collect that piece of your dignity and soul that you left with someone.

So, imagine what happens when you break up with someone you've slept with. Or that you just hooked up with. You have given someone a little slice of yourself forever. And you can never get it back. And imagine what happens when you do that multiple times. You give a piece of yourself to five, 10, 15, 20 or more people. Then you meet the person that you want to spend forever with. And you no longer have that whole part of you. You've given pieces away, and you can no longer give those to the love of your life.

So, save those pieces for your future spouse.

If you have not had sex yet, wait. If you have, consider not giving more pieces of yourself away to people who are not your spouse. Sex was created to be between two spouses, nobody else. So we need to try to maintain its integrity.

How I Feel When I Like A Boy

The feeling of fall is paralyzing.


So I kind of like a boy, and it terrifies me.

It terrifies me because I don't want to be hurt. My emotions are sacred to me. They are something I guard. I can't control them often; but I can control who has access to them.

I would rather push people away then give someone that may choose to be careless with my emotions the opportunity to hurt me. Play with me. Harm me.

It is terrifying to me to think that I could potentially end up in such agonizing pain that I can't make it better if him and I don't go the way I hope. The person that would be able to make it better will be the person that inflicted that pain. It'll be the person that decides that they want nothing to do with me anymore.

Maybe it's fear of abandonment. Maybe it's fear of feeling worthless, unwanted. Maybe it's the fear of the unknown. Or maybe it's just that I want to carefully choose who I could feel deeply for.

All I know is that I feel like I'm falling. I feel like I can't control the rush I feel around him. The happiness, the bliss, the hope.
