When You Unexpectedly Lose A Friend At A Young Age, Your Life Changes Forever

It's OK to not be OK.

When You Unexpectedly Lose A Friend At A Young Age, Your Life Changes Forever
Madison Skinner

Three years ago, I lost one of the best friends a girl could have.

Looking back now, I still don't understand why it was your time to go, but it was simply just that. And that was just something I had to get adapted to. It was definitely not easy to go to school after that, honestly, it was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do.

Losing you made me realize how short life really is.

We are only on this earth for a limited time, and there's no reason to waste it. I now try and make the most out of every situation I find myself in. I'm trying to make myself a better person and to eventually become the type of friend you were to me.

No matter how many years go by, I'll never forget you or the impact you've had on my life.

We were only in each other's lives for a few years, but you taught me so much in those short years we spent together. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your friend, making me laugh after I failed a math test, and showing me that I deserve so much more than I thought I did.

Something I want others going through the loss of a friend to know is that you are allowed to grieve.

You are allowed to cry it out. You do not need to let yourself go to the point where you don't know who you are anymore. You do not need to lose your faith in God, this happened for a reason and it's not your fault. Do not blame God for taking your friend, it won't help you the least bit. I hope you find yourself again, once you get over the mountain.

I hope you smile when you look back on the memories you have with them.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
