​I’m The Girl Who Can Only Learn From Her Mistakes, And Even Then…​

Being afraid to love is being afraid to live.

​I’m The Girl Who Can Only Learn From Her Mistakes, And Even Then…​

A lot of people say that I fall too fast or get attached too easily. I'm sorry, but I didn't realize there were any rules to love or a chance of it anyway. I don't like to waste time or play games, but when you live in the world that we live in today, you realize this is the norm.

If you're not stringing someone along or getting played yourself, it is considered old-fashioned or being too clingy. I have made the mistake of being so naive and believing in people that I shouldn't have and I can only learn from those mistakes if I make them myself.

Even then, I don't learn. I see the good in people, not by choice. It's just something that I do, that I was born doing. I fall into the same trap over and over again, but one day, there will be someone who makes me grateful that I am so naive and that I fall too fast.

They will appreciate all the people who have come before because although they hurt me, they will have taught me to appreciate others who treat me right more than anything else.

So don't be afraid of how easily you fall for someone. Don't block everyone out because you're afraid of getting hurt again. You never know, the person you are blocking out might just be who you need to let in.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
