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

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
