To My Boyfriend Who Changed My Life, I Can't Thank You Enough For Making Me Better Every Day
The CW

Social media is flooded with negativity on relationships such as "how I caught my boyfriend cheating on me" or "my toxic boyfriend did this." Everybody has a bad ex, there's no denying that, but sometimes they get more attention than the ones in our lives now. So this is for a relationship I am in presently, a letter to my amazing boyfriend.

Boyfriend, I wanted to take some time to thank you for all you have done. Before us, I was broken and at a low time in my life, but you came along and swept me off my feet like something out of a fairy tale (kinda, I mean you understand).

You make me better, you have influenced me to do more things than I know I could. In these short months that we have been together, I am farther in my life than I ever thought I would be or even could be.

You taught me what it's like to be truly loved and supported. I'm not afraid to fail while I am with you because I know I have you to push me on my feet again. You taught me it's OK to fail and to struggle, just as long as you stay strong.

Thank you for all the little things. Flowers, candy, hugs, and kisses, they mean the world to me and more. Those little texts you send me in the morning is more than that. And I feel as though sometimes I may come off as ungrateful but I want you to know I appreciate everything and look back every day and see how lucky I am to have you. I truly have never been so spoiled.

Everyone says to be in a relationship, you have to have a friendship. I think being together strengthened our friendship and has made us more compatible and more open with each other. I am glad we can be goofy with one another but we can still be serious in the moments that we need to be. I am lucky enough to say I am in love with my best friend.

Overall, thank you for being you. I will never be able to express how proud I am of you for how far you have come. You are the strongest, most loyal human being I have ever met and I admire you for it. You love me with every ounce of you, you always have and I will never find another you.

I know we get irritated and annoyed with each other, but I know that what we have is very special. You fixed the broken pieces of me and I could never be more thankful. When I see you, I see our future and I cannot wait for the rest of our adventure. Every day we create new memories and strengthen our relationship and I am so thankful for that.

So to my boyfriend, thank you for changing my life. I love you.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

About a year ago, I began my own fitness journey. Growing up, I had played soccer and kept busy, but after an injury cut my soccer career short I suddenly became very inactive. It took years of misfires before I finally found a new active passion for weight lifting. Getting started is never easy, and setting up for success is the best plan of action to assist anyone in your life who is thinking about starting their own journey. These are a few items you can gift for the fitness rookie in your life:

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

The beaches are starting to open up. At least in Cape Cod, where my family and I were able to vacation this week. Near our house, we have a bit of a private beach, which is great.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.
