A Letter To The Girl Who Walks The Line

A Letter To The Girl Who Walks The Line

Wear your heart on your sleeve, tattoo it on your head if you want to.

Fame de 10

You're the girl who continuously drops everything for everyone- even if they wouldn't bat an eye if you were in need. You invest your whole heart into someone who sometimes doesn't return the favor. You walk the line for someone who wouldn't even draw you a circle.

You call into work, ditch your friends and family, and clear your schedule just for someone who may or may not call and ask to see you.

You love this person, you care about this person, you're 100% in it to win it with this person, even if they may not feel the same way. You wear your heart on your sleeve for them, even if they cannot bear the many feelings you express daily.

That's where the issues come in.

"You're too emotional."

"You're so frustrating."

"You stress me out."

"You're too much."

"I need space."

But girls like us cannot understand why we are so frustrating. We don't comprehend why anyone would not want to be loved and cared for with 100% of our hearts. We don't understand why everyone runs so far away from us when all we want to do is share our love that surpasses the capacity our hearts can hold.

So, this is my advice to you:

Wear your heart on your sleeve, tattoo it on your forehead if you want to.

Love that person who may not share the same feelings with every ounce of your being, you won't regret it. I can promise you they'll come running back to you- they will realize how much they appreciate your love. It may not happen tomorrow or next month, but give it time. Just remember one thing- you can never remove the creases out of a crumbled piece of paper.

Set your standards high, and keep them that way. One lucky guy is going to come along who gives you 100%, and he's probably just as frustrated as you are right now. He's probably wondering why everyone runs away from his love too. Don't worry, though, your paths will cross at exactly the right time.

And lastly, keep a close watch on that heart of yours.

Because one day someone will walk the line you never even had to draw.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
