Sometimes three words make all the difference.

I like making people uncomfortable, but telling someone you love them shouldn't be something so taboo! I like making sure my friends know I care about them, that I am here for them, and that I love them. So I texted 11 people I care about to say "I Love You" out of the blue and see just what they would say.

I also picked people I don't normally text "I Love You" to on a daily basis, so sorry, Mom, but you are not included. Honestly, the results were kind of shocking.

My Longtime Best Friend

"uuhhh I love you too lmao."

My Boba Tea Best Friend

"You too, any reason or just because? Because I love you too?"

The Friend People Think Is My Twin

"Awww I love you too!"

My Tall Curly Haired Friend

"I love you... are you ok?"

My Roommate-Turned-Bestie

"Love you too Oschmegle."

My Bald Friend

"Thanks, that was random."

My Mutt Buddie

"I love you too omg!"

My Swimmer Friend

"Aww thank you! This was very sudden haha."

My Geopolitics Friend

"Dude I love you too!! I was actually having kind of a rough day and that genuinely just made me so happy!"

My Physics Friend

"I love you too... why?"

My Sister

"I love you too?"

Overall, I think the most refreshing thing was the number of people who not only said "I love you" back, but who checked in to see if I was OK. It's good to have people who are genuinely there for you even if you don't say you love them nearly enough.

I think maybe we should all start saying "I love you" a little more because a lot of people were genuinely confused as to why they were receiving this message out of nowhere.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

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.
