Selena Gomez’s “Lose You To Love Me” Really Hits Close To Home For Me

It is so much more than lyrics.

Selena Gomez’s “Lose You To Love Me” Really Hits Close To Home For Me

When listening to the song for the first time, it sounded as if she had read my mind. I remember being in a toxic relationship, but not realizing it until afterwards. I remember believing he thought he knew what was best for me. I remember seeing some signs that I should have left, but I ignored them. These lyrics hit so close to home.

He always played the victim. He always acted as if he was the one hurting and like I hurt him. He tore me down, no doubt. He made me think I deserved what he put me through. He tore me down. He made me feel like I was never enough and that I needed to change myself.

I always went back and looked at us so blindly. I always ran back and thought things would change because I put him first instead of myself. He promised me so much, but those promises never came true. I finally ended that chapter.

I left him and found myself. I found the things I loved about myself. I put myself first for the first time in a long time. I built myself back up from where he tore me down. I finally saw all the signs and made sure I said goodbye forever on that chapter of my life.

I realized what I deserved in life. I realized I had to lose him to love myself. I needed to hate him to love myself and never go back.

It's a topic that needs to be talked about way more than it should, especially in today's world: mental health. Whether it be anxiety, depression or O.C.D.

When Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in by the Supreme Court, she insisted overturning Roe v. Wade wasn't on her agenda. That landmark case made it possible for pregnant people across America to legally choose whether to have an abortion. There are many reasons a person would want to terminate their pregnancy. Money, age, health and sexual assault are just some of the reasons a person would choose to get an abortion.

The girl who was supposed to be forever

You become best friends thinking you’ll never leave each others side, that bff’s literally means forever and ever. You pick someone and you click. Random trips to wherever, tons and tons of photos. You spend years building a relationship and a special bond thinking it’ll be there when you’re gray and wrinkly. The endless nights staying up and talking about anything and everything, the stupidest things. Meeting each other’s families, calling their parents yours. You plan your whole life around theirs, future kids being besties and houses next door to each others.
