Loving You Has Been Hell, But It Has Been So Worth It

After all this time, you're so worth it.

Loving You Has Been Hell, But It Has Been So Worth It

No one understands why no one understands how no one understands the US.

After 8 years of loving someone, at some point you have to say “Alright that's enough, we're either going to do this or we aren't" and for once, we both wanted to do this.

It hasn't been easy, it's been a lot of disagreements, a lot of arguments that lasted a week or longer, a lot of hatred built up from the past eight years from one of us leaving. It's been long nights without talking because we all know I'm good at that. It's been the day so where we just sleep to make the day pass by faster so we can say we went a day without arguing.

It's me getting mad about the little things, and you getting mad when you don't understand why I'm mad. But no matter what, at the end of the day, I'm thankful for you, I'm thankful for who you've been, I'm thankful for who you are, and I'm thankful for who you're becoming.

No one understands this relationship but no one understands me the way you do. When I'm around you, I know that I can totally be myself. You are the only person I can say that about and that's what makes you so special to me. Of course, we have changed over the years, and things aren't anywhere near as simple as we thought they would be, but my love for you grows stronger every day, even the days I don't talk to you...

Believe it or not, you're strong love and hardheaded-ness has made me into a better person, because of you I am stronger, I love harder, and I believe in us. Without your constant reassurance, that I wish I didn't need, I would've given up on day three, but knowing that you love me the way you do I will not believe.

If I could do it all over again, I would've always chosen you.

To The Boy Who Changed Me

Just another open letter from a crazy ex-girlfriend.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
