Learning To Love The Ugly In Someone

Love isn't all sunshine and butterflies

Learning To Love The Ugly In Someone

Loving is never easy. Most great things never are. Yet, as a society, we have such a glamoured vision of what love is supposed to be like. Ah, the butterflies, rose-colored, and fairy-tale love. Where you find your soul mate and everything is perfect.

However, I'm sure by our age you know love is more than just puppies and kittens. It takes real hard work and dedication to truly make things last. A part of commitment is learning to love the ugly in someone.

Now, mind you, none of us is perfect. However, this isn't an excuse to pardon abusive behavior. It doesn't matter if someone is being abusive with fists or words, it's never okay. The best course of action is to distance yourself, seek out help if needed, and remove yourself from the situation.

Yet, even if there is no abuse, learning to love and to cope with someone's ugly side is never an easy fleet. Yet, to make things last it is necessary.

Distance yourself, remind yourself of all the reasons you love them, and come back with a fresh mind and heart.

Coping with the angry, the sad, and the upset in someone is never easy. Love certainly isn't. Yet, just because something isn't easy doesn't mean it's not worthwhile.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
