An Open Letter To The Girl With A Broken Heart

You shouldn't have to guess what they were thinking about 24/7 because that's not a relationship, that's the game Clue.


Your feelings are valid.

Don't let anyone tell you to just get over it.

I know you put your heart out to care for this person, but they treated that gift as a right and not a privilege.

I hope you know that your heart is a gift, that it is special and valuable and precious.

I hope you know that this isn't how it's supposed to be, not all people will treat you like this, I promise. The way they treated you is on them, not you.

You shouldn't have to guess what they were thinking about 24/7 because that's not a relationship, that's the game Clue. Your love is not a game.

It's okay not to be okay. It's okay to be "fine." Don't expect yourself to bounce right back. Surround yourself with people to hold you up when you can't by yourself. Surround yourself with people who tell the truth about you so you know what that looks like in a future relationship.


Don't settle.

This isn't a court of law. This is your heart. This is your life. Don't lower your standards because of how this person treated you. You are not second best, so never settle for that. You have so much to offer and give. You're one step closer to the one. You are someone's dream girl. That person is being prepared for you right now. Find joy in this fact that someone is waiting just for you.


Don't shut down.

Let yourself feel the emotions you want to feel, but don't isolate yourself. Lies in your mind find power in silence. You are worth listening to. Your voice should be heard. Don't let this person silence you. Use this as motivation and run faster after your passions. Silence the lies with truths.

You are loved. You are beautiful. You are amazing. You are one of a kind. You are worthy. You are valued. You are appreciated.

You might have heard this before by the person who broke your heart, but all of these remain true.

You are strong.

Don't dwell in the past of this relationship.

Don't let them win. Connect with friends that can help you recognize the truth about who you are and who you are becoming. This is your life, now take hold of it and prove them wrong.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
