For When You Feel Like Giving Up
Source of Insight

If you're looking for a pick-me-up, this isn't it. If you're looking for a bright, cheery solution to all your problems, this isn't it. But if what you're looking for is an empathetic heart, a listening ear, and an understanding soul, this is it.

I'm gonna be real with you -- life hurts so terribly badly sometimes. Lately I've been crying at every tiny thing that bothers me, and that aggravates me so much! I hate to cry, but I've been so upset recently that I can't seem to do anything but cry.

Have you ever felt that way? You've been so mad and angry that you just break down? Or maybe you are so hurt you're just overcome with a weird sense of calm. Sometimes I think it's pointless to be upset because it's not gonna actually help anything... but I've learned that it's better to express yourself than let it build and build until it just blows up. If that's you, take it from me- find a way to get out your frustrations. Cry, work out, color, journal, talk to someone, pray, do whatever you have to do in order to get through the day.

We all have our days. Sometimes, it seems like life can punch us right in the face and then kick us when we're down. Sometimes these rough days are even consecutive, but we can all power through. If there's anything I've learned though all my struggles, it's that we're all stronger than we think. Sometime I don't think I have the emotional strength to make it through to the next day. But guess what happens? I wake up the next morning, and I thank God for blessing me with another day to fight the good fight.

So even if you feel like you're all alone, fighting your battles with no help or support at all, just know that there's someone out there that knows how you feel. There's someone out there who struggles just like you, and is praying that God gives you the strength to power through.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
