To The Girl Who Doesn't Think She's Enough

You feel like you wear your mistakes on your forehead and that your accomplishments are packed away in a box.

Whether it was a boy, family, friends, or (God forbid) yourself, there is a reason you opened this article. You don't think you are "enough." You are enough.

Take a look in the mirror at the girl that you are. You are you, and there is nothing more beautiful than that. No one else has the opportunity to live the exact same life as you. You may not see your life as an "opportunity," hell you might despise it, but it is the most unique thing about you. Through the ups and downs, you have been there for yourself. Giving yourself mental pep-talks has probably become a routine part of your day. You are you, and you are your best friend.

You are not your past. People may treat you certain ways because of how you have been in the past. You feel like you wear your mistakes on your forehead, and that your accomplishments are packed away in a box. Surround yourself with people who won't judge you by your past, but with people who will love you for what you accomplish in the future.

As cliche as it sounds, treat yourself. Spend time with yourself. Like I said, you are your own best friend. Spend time with yourself. Go to the gym by yourself, take long drives by yourself, even treat yourself to ice cream or pizza every now and again. If you don't love yourself, your feelings toward others won't be as genuine as they could be. Allow yourself to love you so others can love you too. You deserve it.

Thousands of girls feel like they aren't enough. You are not alone. Look in the mirror, love what you see, and spend the rest of your life knowing your self-worth — and never letting people bring that down.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.
