Snap Out Of It, Girls, Stop Falling For Your Bestfriend

It's not always like the movies, you probably aren't meant to be with your best friend and that's the cold, hard truth and I'm not sorry for telling you this. It's not always worth it, so get it through your head and snap out of it if needed.

Snap Out Of It, Girls, Stop Falling For Your Bestfriend

Don't fall in love with your best friend if any of these reasons are the truth for you. It's not fair to you or him.


Don't fall in love with your best friend because you're lonely and he gives you attention.

He showers you with compliments. He knows you well enough to know what you like, and he offers you this without the guise of expectation love can bring.

Don't fall in love with your best friend, because when you fall, you risk not having a net to catch you.

He's the one you go to with your problems. The day you decide to go out is the day you become okay with the idea of potentially becoming the problem for one another. You risk losing a lover and a friend all at once.

Don't fall in love with your best friend, because nowadays it's harder to find real friends than it is to find a lover.

People who endlessly support you as you are aren't a dime a dozen. They take time to find, nurture and keep in your life. If you've been lucky enough to have a ride or die, you shouldn't ruin that.

Don't fall in love with your best friend, because you know them too well.

You know what makes them tick already. You know how he handles affairs of the heart. And because of this, you know you deep down you can't trust him with yours.

Don't fall in love with your best friend, because watching him pick other people will continue to break your heart for as long as you let it.

You shouldn't be with someone you always make excuses for. He only does what's convenient for himself – that's all he's ever done. If ever you held priority to him, you lost it the second you dismissed any of this behavior as being okay.

Don't fall in love with your best friend, because he's already his best self with you

He's not working through insecurity because you know them all already. He's not trying to be a polished version of himself at all times because you see through the front. You two will never be more genuine than you are right now.

Don't fall in love with your best friend, because you both are just too similar.

You have almost too much in common. And despite this, you still find ways to nitpick at the little things he does that really get on your nerves. Way more than they should.

Most of all – don't fall in love with your best friend because deep down, even if you can't admit it right now, you know it will always be the image of happily ever after you're chasing. Not him.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
