To The Girl Who Always Sees The Best In People

You are a rare breed.

Hello, beautiful dreamer,

I want to start off by saying this: Well done.

You are a rare breed. Your ability to see the best in people (to a fault) isn't just a personality trait that you walk on a tightrope, one moment quivering to adoration, the next leaning towards frustration and despising this quality.

No, your ability to see the best in people is a conscious choice that you choose to make. You choose to see the best in people because you believe that love is stronger than hate, that love will overpower any resistance it encounters because that's just how it works- it's vital to its very essence. You choose to see the best in people because you believe their good qualities significantly outweigh their bad ones- and maybe, just maybe, if you believe in somebody's greatest potential, they'll start to see their worth, too.

You are rare, you are courageous, and you are going to get hurt. Wearing your heart on your sleeve is a noble act- you offer love and compassion to those who need it, and some are going to take advantage of you. Some are going to take and take and take, and when you ask for a little compassion back, they'll turn their nose up, disgusted that you would dare ask such a thing. Some are going to refuse to believe in themselves, opting to believe that the only qualities and traits they possess are negative. These people will tire you out, will nearly take your entire store of compassion because once they've had a taste, they never want to give it up. And others, well, they'll lead you on- they'll make you think they're changing, spoon feeding you lie after lie, and you accept it because they said they would try to grow, try to change, try to be better.

In the end, you're left wondering if there's any honesty left in the world.

Well, beautiful dreamer, let me tell you a little secret: you are the honesty. You are the honesty the world thrives on. You are the honesty that that those who have no hope actually find hope in. You are the caretaker to the used and abused, the lover to the hated, the comforter to the afflicted and the afflicted to the comfortable. You are the good in the world, and even though you will get hurt, you continue forward, knowing that you are indeed helping others.

Here's to the girl who always sees the best in people. Please, never stop- because maybe, just maybe, you'll start a chain reaction.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
