4 Reasons Why You Should Let Go

I know it hurts, but this is what is best for everybody.

4 Reasons Why You Should Let Go

There will be somebody in your life that you will care about so much. All you will want to do is spend every second of each day with them. You love them so much that you can't imagine your life without them. But sometimes you have to let go. Things in life don't always work out the way that you want them to go. People grow apart and you start talking less. You stop getting good morning texts. Perhaps you just stop talking to them. People get busy with their lives and forget to include you in them. I know it hurts, I've been there. All you want to do is cry and hope they could come back. You hope that things could go back the way they were before. But I'm telling you this: you have to let go and here is why.

1. You don't need someone who doesn't want to be with you.


If that person is not giving you the same amount of effort that you are giving to them, then let go of that relationship. Are you the one who is constantly texting the person, hoping to keep the conversation going? If yes, then that is not right. It should be a 50/50 effort. If he/she doesn't care enough for you, then say goodbye. All I'm seeing is talk but no action.

2. Stop crying over the person.


You don't deserve to be with someone who is constantly making you cry. There is someone out there for you who will care about you and love you unconditionally. I know right now it seems that he/she is everything that matters in this world, but they're not.

3. If your friends don't like them, then that's a sign.


Your friends should matter before that person. If your friends don't like that person, then that tells you something. That tells you that you need someone better.

4. You deserve to be happy.

It's time to finally let go and be happy. It's going to be hard because you love that person. But that person isn't the one for you. You deserve to be the best version of yourself and the best version of yourself is not with that person.

You have to move on. It feels really good once you finally let go. You realize that the person is not important. You make your friends and other things your priority. You won't even think of that person. If he/she does not care, then you shouldn't care. You deserve to be happy.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
