Stop The Bullying And Start Being Kind To One Another

Sticks and stones might break your bones, but words can freaking kill you.

Stop The Bullying And Start Being Kind To One Another

I am not like most people. I am the girl who at one time was not okay. I lost my last remaining parent and my world is nothing like it was before. I have spent nights with my head on my pillow just wishing I would die. I was not okay.

It doesn't show on the outside, though does it? I would never let you know what I really feel like and that is what makes it dangerous. That is what keeps you from holding your words back, or is it? You see you who bully are no better than the one you bully. You are the lowest kind of human being. You have no regard for human life and that is why people kill themselves. Families go through a lifetime of pain, because you can't or couldn't keep your mouth shut.

A bully doesn't just start. They start and never stop. They will take you down with them every step of the way. That is why you have to be bigger than that. You have to know your self-worth is not determined by the opinion of someone else.

Words are more than words. They become daggers. They keep the victim up at night. They wonder why they are like they are, when they aren't even the ones who should have to. Words can kill people.

Slander and defamation are serious things. At what point does it become okay for a group of people to make an attack on just one? One person with a very bad mental health history. Someone who has already attempted suicide before.What point do those people have to account for their actions?

Many bullies will always be bullies and many who experience torture at their hands will be silenced by them forever. It's time we take a stand. It's time we save the lives of those who need help to stand up for themselves. Mental health needs to be taken more seriously. Many times it is brushed off as though it is not a serious problem.

Bullying, anxiety, depression, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts are not something to take lightly. There are people out there suffering as I have in the past, who feel too ashamed to get help. They feel unimportant and unloved. They might not have that rock they once clung to and now they feel as though they are drowning.

We have to be kind to one another. Showing kindness can save someone's life and you not even know it. Stop the harassment and hatred. Stop the bullying.

The right thing has to be done and more awareness brought toward this issue. Lives literally depend on it. We need to help scars fade and bring happiness back to the hurting. We need more medical coverage for it and we need to shut down the bullying.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
