If You Love Him, Let Him Go

"Prepare yourself for the moment you decided to be on your own by staying positive and focusing on the love that you really want."

If You Love Him, Let Him Go

You may have heard the phrase that if you love something, let it go. Unfortunately, this is true. Breaking up with someone is one of the hardest things that a person has to do especially if that person is one you've spent a majority of your life with. It's not the fact that you won't have that person to lean on anymore, it's that you now have to turn the one life you had together into two lives that are lived apart.

The thought of having to face reality on your own is scary. I believe this is why so many people find it easy to fall back into the same routine that they know is best left behind. You want so badly to forgive the fact that the bad in the person you so dearly loved outweighs the good that you rarely were able to see. This is why your heart endures so much sadness from someone you only want to be happy with.

Leaving someone behind has to start with you learning why you left them. Maybe they were never the person you were expecting them to be, maybe they treated you terrible, or maybe you just didn't see yourself marrying them in the future. Whatever your reasoning, you have to realize that it was for the best.

The sad thing about loving someone, is that sometimes you just can't show them how much you love them. They are unappreciative of the love you are willing to give them and you don't deserve that. You don't deserve someone who doesn't want to give you the same amount of love and affection that you are willing to give them. You don't deserve someone who treats you disrespectfully and you sure don't deserve someone who doesn't look past your flaws to see the beauty of your personality.

If you love him, let him go. Maybe he'll find himself and see that you were the best thing that ever happened to him, or maybe he won't. Just know that whatever happens the moment you decide its time to call it quits, happens for the sake of your well being.

Prepare yourself for the moment you decided to be on your own by staying positive and focusing on the love that you really want. The love that you are able to share equally with someone. The love that you know is real and doesn't feel like it is bringing you down. Know your worth. Only then will you find the deeper, healthier love that you've searched your whole life for

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
