A Letter To Those Struggling Through Life Right Now
Kari Jones MS

To anyone struggling in life,

You may not care to read this, because you might be at that breaking point in your life, you know, where you just don't care about anything at all anymore. But, in case you do read this, I need you to know that you are capable. You are capable of so much more than you make yourself out to be. You are much more than your past and your demons. You are the person that you dream to be. You see, life is a struggle, but you are not what makes up that struggle in life.

It's hard to listen to what people say to you because how do they see and understand the difficulties you face? You are correct in the fact that they couldn't possibly see your difficulties and understand them. But you are incorrect if you think because someone does not understand you, means they couldn't possibly care about you. Sometimes, people don't want to know and understand battles you are fighting because then they would be force to feel what you feel too.

People are going to try to bring you down, gain power of you, and make you believe you are not worthy. Remember, jealousy is the ugly truth. Remove the ugly truth (jealousy) and remember this life is about you. You may be struggling, but you are not the negative words that come out of a jealous mouth.

You truly hold the key to your life. Every aspect of your life relies on you. A lot of people see the now and sometimes the now is a dark picture. That's all they see though, they don't look past the dark picture. Every picture you play in your head or see now represents a standstill. It will move again, you will see through the dark image you are seeing, and you will have the opportunity to change the person you see in that dark picture.

Life takes time, you take time to grow, you take time to learn, and you take time to love. Every process in life takes time. Give yourself time to get through this dark time. Remember, you are more than you believe yourself to be. Do not let the negative mind win your life. Life can get dark and scary, but life still needs you in it, to help make life a little more brighter and a little less scary.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

7446

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
