My Life Wouldn't Be The Same Without You, I'm Glad You're My Soulmate

I can honestly say that I have no idea where in life I would be without you.

My Life Wouldn't Be The Same Without You, I'm Glad You're My Soulmate
Kayla Lindberg

Everyone says that your significant other is your soul mate, but I found my soulmate in my best friend.

There is nobody in this world that I feel as comfortable with, nobody in this world who can tell exactly what I am feeling by just looking at me, nobody in this world who knows me better than she does. Everyone has a soulmate and she is mine.

She has been there for almost everything in my life, giving me nothing but the most amazing support and love. She has seen the good, the bad, the ugly, and the absolute drama. Fortunately, she has stuck around. It has been over ten years and I know for a fact I would not be who I am or where I am today if I never met her in fourth grade at a brand new school I had never stepped foot in.

We can go for weeks without talking, but, when we talk, it is like nothing has changed. We have our own lives going on — we have our own things to deal with. When we do come together, nothing really matters. I can show up at her house at one in the morning and fall asleep with her.

She is truly my rock and the best thing that has happened to me. From our 9-year-old shenanigans to the dumb decisions we made together in high school, I will always remember them. After all, she has literally been there through everything.

She was my backbone when I lost family, friends, and even myself. She was there when I was at my highest and my lowest; she never stopped showing me love.

She has been my biggest supporter when it comes to school and finding myself and my passion. She is one of the first people to read anything I publish, anything I post, and she is always the first person to tell me she is proud of me.

We have planned out our entire lives around each other — where we want to live, the career paths we wish to follow, and the kids we wish to have.

So many friends have come and gone in both of our lives. There have been times where we have fallen off and forgot who we are to each other. I take her for granted and she has taken me for granted. Although she is my best friend, there are times where I want to kill her — I know the feeling is always mutual.

We annoy each other. We fight. We argue. We don't always agree on things. Fighting with someone you love more than yourself sucks but also hurts a lot.

Friend-love is really a different type of love, which I am so lucky to experience with her.

So here's to you, Dejah. Thank you for being my person, my best friend, my soulmate, my supporter, the only person who truly knows how to handle my obnoxious personality, all in one. I love you and am so lucky to have you into my life.

To The Boy Who Changed Me

Just another open letter from a crazy ex-girlfriend.

2013

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
