What It's Like To Be Loved When You Don't Love Yourself

For when I cannot love myself.

What It's Like To Be Loved When You Don't Love Yourself

Over the last few years I never really knew what love was or what loving myself was.

I hadn't been loved by anyone but my family so it was really hard, add on a few mental illnesses and you've gout yourself a hard time ahead.

But then I met Zachary.

Lord, let me tell you, that kid can love. He has shown me more love than I thought that I could ever have for myself.

I think the hardest part is when I feel I cannot love myself because something stops me for some reason or another but then Zach comes out of nowhere and gives me hope once again and helps me get through a day and helps me survive and thrive and live and breathe and I thank God every day for him.

I never thought I would find a love so real and genuine. One that doesn't care if you don't wear makeup or if you want to just stay in and wear sweats or if you're just plain feeling sorry for yourself and they STILL love you.

It's amazing.

It's truly amazing

I don't really know how else to put it other than I am the luckiest girl in the world to be loved by the one man iI want to love for the rest of my life. if you find this kind of love I promise it makes everything that you've been through worthwhile.

I love you, Zachary

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
