Stop Chasing Him Ladies, That's How Your Crown Falls Off

When it comes to relationships, every woman I know has chased after a man once or twice in their life. It's a bad habit, us trying to force someone to love us even though they don't want to. I have burned myself many times by holding onto a relationship and it ended up hurting me in the long run.

Here are 7 things you can do to stop chasing after guys and focusing on what's more important. That important thing is you.

1. Put your phone down.

This might be the simplest way to stop chasing a man. Just put the damn phone down. Once you do that, you open yourself up to being able to look at the world around you. Leave your phone at home and go to the gym or go out with the girls. It's the first step.

2. Block him

Another easy thing to do, just block him baby girl. The quote "out of sight, out of mind" is a true quote when it comes to relationships. Once you block him, three weeks later, you'll realize that you don't even think about them during the day.

3. Go through the grief stage, then grow.

Nowadays on Twitter and Instagram, girls who stop chasing men that don't want them and find out their true worth literally glow. Be like Khloe Kardashian, get your revenge body. Go out and do something with yourself because it makes YOU look good and makes YOU feel good.

4. Pick up a new hobby.

Do you have a book you've been wanting to read lately? A new yoga class you've been waiting to sign up for? Do it. Just like Shia says, just do it. Putting yourself out there opens yourself to new opportunities and allows you to prosper as a woman.

5. Spend time with your mom.

This is one of my favorite things to do when I am going through a rough patch, not even necessarily with a guy. Spending time with your mom can help you feel better in numerous ways. She will give you great advice because she's been there too. She'll share her thoughts and ideas with you on what you should do when it comes to taking the next step and forgetting all about him.

6. Write it out

This one might seem silly, but take a piece of paper out and write all of the mean and sad things you want to say to him and put it all on this piece of paper. You'll feel better getting it all out there and you'll feel relieved knowing you said what you had to say. Then you can light the piece of paper on fire and forget all about him.

7. Adjust your crown.

All ladies are queens, therefore we have crowns. We have crowns that have jewels in them to show what life has taken us through and all that we are growing up to be. Don't let any man have the power to make that crown slip off of your head. He's not royalty.

It seems daunting to stop trying to force someone to be with you even though you desperately want them to be, but it will be okay. I promise. Continue to thrive and do the above 7 steps and more of your own to finally get yourself to stop chasing after him. The right one will come to you, and when he does, he won't make you chase.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
