Never Let Fear Hold You In Hurt

When it hurts to move on, just think of the pain you felt while trying to hold on.

Never Let Fear Hold You In Hurt

I'm sure everyone has been betrayed or hurt at one point of time in life, experienced a tragedy that was just absolutely difficult to forget, or has just gone through life with the fear of disappointing others. Have you ever stopped to ask yourself "why is it so hard to forgive the person who hurt you, why do you fear moving on after a bad relationship, or why do you try so hard to please others?" Often times, it's because you've become accustomed to living a particular lifestyle with certain people in your life and you fear change or that no one else will accept you. Although it may be difficult, always remember to NEVER LET FEAR HOLD YOU IN HURT!

One of life's hardest lessons is learning to forgive and let go. No matter how hard it hurts, learn to let go of the past. Learn to forgive the people who hurt you. Forgiveness sets you free. You'll never truly be happy in life if you continue to live with a grudge against someone from your past. Most likely, the person who caused you so much hurt will move on and never think twice about the situation.

Life will throw you many curve balls, but the important thing to remember is to not be bitter about the disappointments life brings. Be thankful for the mistakes you make in life because, most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most.

No one deserves to be mistreated and everyone deserves to be happy. Although it's easier said than done, don't be afraid to walk away from a relationship or the people who have hurt you time and time again. Even though it may hurt to walk away, that will never compare to the pain and humiliation you experienced and felt while trying to hold on. Don't let the fear of being alone keep you in a relationship where you're all alone. Your life is far more important than your "relationship." Don't consider yourself to be weak because you finally decided to walk away, but stronger than ever because you were finally able to realize your worth.

You can't let people scare you or go through life trying to please others. Don't let the judgment of others stop you from being yourself. Stay focused on yourself. David Icke once stated, "The greatest prison people live in is fear of what other people think." If someone can't accept you for the person you are, then he or she doesn't deserve to have you in his or her life.

On a brighter note, not everyone is out to mistreat, manipulate, or set you up for failure. Don't go through life living in fear because fear destroys your ability to trust. Even if you've had your heart broken time and time again, if someone comes along and wants to be there for you and love you for you, LET THEM! The worse thing you can do is push the person who truly cares for you away.

Know your worth, know when to walk away and NEVER LET FEAR HOLD YOU IN HURT!

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
