It's Okay To Find Love at a "Young" Age

Love is love.

It's Okay To Find Love at a "Young" Age
Laura Carter

Many people in their twenties think they may be too young for love and for adult life. They often date around and "talk" to people instead of committing themselves to a serious type of relationship. This article is to explain that it's okay if you don't fall into that category. While it's totally fine to not want to be tied down, it's also totally fine if you want to be "seeing" someone and "going steady"; that is okay too. It's time to stop shaming young love, especially if the people are completely right for each other.

Growing up I've always been a romantic. I loved watching romantic movies like The Notebook and fell in love with the idea of love and romance. I mean how amazing is it that one person feels so strongly about you, that they are in love with you and want to be with you forever? It's a crazy thing to think about -- love.

That being said, whenever you find love, I feel you should go after it. You shouldn't be worried about what other people think because a relationship is only between two people. It doesn't matter how young they may be.

If you do find love at a young age, I feel you should be grateful. So many people in this world are not as lucky to find love at all in their lives. Also think about all the time you save by not having to go on any more blind dates or being lonely. I feel like finding my love at a young age was a blessing because I just get to spend more time with the love of my life than say "what if I found him" years down the road.

I've come to realize that many people are almost afraid of young love, because they may think it can be too good to be true and just lead to trouble or distraction. I think this is untrue. If you're with the right person, that person should just be building you up and helping you get to where you want to be, not distracting you from your career path and goals. They become close to not only you, but your family and friends as well. This person wants to help you reach all of your goals and to be a part of them, loving and supporting you the whole way.

The shaming of young love needs to stop. If you truly care about someone, and you see them happy with the love of their life at a "young" age, you should be happy for them! Some people just don't understand that love really can happen for people early in life. Love knows no age or time. I feel truly blessed that I have met the love of my life already, and I wouldn't want it any other way.

A true love simply just betters the other person, and I don't think anyone of any age should be made to feel ashamed of that.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
