To The People I'm Scared To Lose

Please don't leave me.

To The People I'm Scared To Lose

Yes, you've guessed it. I'm another girl grown up with abandonment and trust issues, still yet to find someone to fill the void left in my body from the ways I've been hurt. I'm another girl that's placed the responsibility on others to make me feel safe when I can't even make myself safe.

To those people I'm scared to lose, this one's for you. There's more than one of you but I don't doubt that after reading this you'll be able to know if this applies.

The more I think about it, the more the thought scares me that I could lose one or all of you. Maybe it'll be something I say or something I do that offends you, or maybe it'll be the way I'm too dependent on you. Maybe it'll be the fact that I exist that makes you want to end your relationship with me.

Not a day goes by that I don't hope and pray that you still care enough about me to stay here with me. I wake up in the morning and am nervous until I hear from you because I don't want to lose yet another link in my life.

But here's the thing: If you want to leave me, you have that full choice to. You have a beautiful, full life to live that doesn't have to have me in it. You're always in control of that and I don't want to be manipulative, making you "pity" me to stay in my life. If that's the case, please leave.

Sometimes when I sit back and think about it, I get nervous. You hold a piece of my puzzle. At any point, you could put the piece down and walk away OR you could hold it, fight this with me, and remind me of the reasons why I'm still trying myself. You hold my fragile heart. I'm scared to lose you because of how much I love you.

The truth is, I'm scared you'll wake up one morning and realize you don't love me anymore.

Now maybe this is because of my deeply rooted abandonment issues and lack of awareness of relationship boundaries. HELL I don't know. Before I met you, I protected myself against getting too close to someone. I had to look out for myself so that I wouldn't get hurt again.

Nothing will ever fill that certain shaped void in my soul that's been left by the people that've left me, and it's unfair of me to put that heavy burden on you. I try my best to remember that but sometimes I forget. Don't let me become too much for you to handle. If you have to push me away, then you have to push me away.

At the end of the day, I am scared that in losing you I will lose myself. I'm scared that you will take a piece of me that I can't get back and that eventually, I will have nothing left of myself. I will only be the shell of the girl I used to be; the little girl begging someone to hear how her day at school went.

Please remember how much I appreciate what you've done for me. Never did I expect you to impact me in the way you have. It's because of you that I've learned countless things that I will carry with me.

Just please don't leave me.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
