To You, From Me

Friendship doesn't always last.

To You, From Me

Dear you,

Hey. It's been a while. I hope you're doing well. It's not that I miss you, because I don't... I miss the thought of you, I guess. I miss what I made up in my head during our "friendship."

Friendship is two sided. Friendship is love for someone that you'd do anything to see them smile. Our "friendship" was one sided. Our "friendship" was hate for someone that you'd do anything to see them cry. We were toxic. But I don't regret wasting my time on you; there were some good moments in there. We laughed until we cried. We shared secrets. We sat in each other's presence without noise. It was good for a while.

I think toward the end we both could feel a fade. I could feel myself not feeling for your happiness anymore. I began to dread seeing your face everyday. I began to wonder why we were still "friends."

Senior year of high school was filled with a series of roller coasters. We were friends, then we weren't. We could stand to be around each other, and then we couldn't. We loved each other. We hated each other. We wanted happiness for each other. We wanted sadness for each other. Just up and down the whole year. It was exhausting.

Looking back now, I realize that there was no "we" or "us" it was only "me" and "you." I thought our kids were going to grow up together. I thought we were going to grow old together. I thought were going to be best friends until the end. I wanted that. I wanted our kids to grow up together. I wanted to grow old together. I wanted to be best friends until the end. But you either didn't or didn't care either way.

Thank you for showing me the opposites in life. When I wanted to go up, you drug me down. When I wanted happiness, you brought sadness. When I wanted bright lights, you drug me into the darkness.

I do love you. I do hope the best for you. I want to see you succeed. I want you to find someone that will treat you like I did. But most importantly, I want you to realize it next time. Show him/her that you care. Be the other side. Don't let them be the one side that cares. Make a lasting friendship. I hope your kids will grow up with their kids. I hope you grow old together. I hope you're best friends until the end.

Because that's what I wanted for you all along--happiness.

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.
