An Open Letter To Anyone Who Just Needs To Cry

I assure you, there is nothing wrong with crying.

An Open Letter To Anyone Who Just Needs To Cry

Dear you beautiful individual,

Life, sometimes it just smacks you down to the floor.

But what about when life takes you down so hard, it almost feels impossible to get back up? Or what about in that moment when you are at your worst, and your only form of expression is to cry?

See today, we don't talk about tears, we don't talk about when things get so hard, all you can do is cry. There is nothing wrong with crying. My mom has always told me "It's okay to cry, sometimes it is the only way you will heal from all the pain you are holding onto."

Lately, life's been happening, it's been rolling in through every corner. Sometimes it feels like it's too much, and I just want everything to stop. To feel overwhelmed is natural, to feel like you don't know the answer to everything is normal. It's okay to not have your whole life figured out, it's okay that you don't know everything.

I've hit life so hard, all I could do was cry. That's okay, when you just need to let it out, scream if you have to, but don't hold those tears in. You'll feel so much better, the second you let go and let yourself feel something.

You see, I've never been afraid to cry. I've never been afraid to just let it out, especially when it needs to come out. And there have been times, where I couldn't hide it, and I just needed to let it out. Even if people where around me. There have been times when it was triggered by sadness, by anger, but I think the worst type of crying is when you are unable to obtain yourself. When you are unable to speak. When you are unable to breathe, and one second feels like a life time because you haven't caught your breath. When you can't think straight, and you can't find yourself to speak without panting for a breath. That's the worst kind, yet at the same time is the best to heal.

Whether you are hurt, angry, happy, sad, and you just need to cry, do it. It isn't a sign of weakness, and so many think if you cry you are a "cry baby", or a "wimp". I tell you that you are not, many times that is the only way you can heal.

When words fail, when you are no longer able to say how you feel, or when you no longer have the strength to stay strong anymore, let it out! It's okay to cry!

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!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
