To The Girl Who Questions Her Self Worth

The world doesn't tell you how worthy you are, you do.

To The Girl Who Questions Her Self Worth

Stop. Just stop.

I know healing isn't exactly an easy, breezy walk in the park, but neither is allowing the judgement of others define your worth. It's easy to see the flaws in yourself and it's easy to convince yourself that others see them too, but trust me, they are more blind than you think. Besides, no one is perfect.

I know sometimes you think you need the acceptance of others, but the thoughts of others do not decide your importance. You are worth more than you realize.

Much too often we look to others for guidance and acceptance, which is fine, until that soon turns into us placing our value in the hands of those in which they do not belong. Or maybe someone gives you attention or affections and suddenly you are blinded by the need and dependency of that person, but don't be deceived. You are stronger than you give yourself credit for.

You shouldn't put the power to destroy yourself in someone else's hands. You matter too much for that and so does your mentality and how you view yourself. People are only as controlling as you allow them to be. So don't let them control your happiness or decide your value.

It's not easy. Sometimes we get caught up in the desirable attentions from others that is toxic and puts us in a bad place. But you are more that the hands that touch your skin, or the whispers that call your name, whether in ecstasy or in shame.

You are more than the hypocritical stares and pointing fingers that point back to the accusers. You are more than the people that love just your beautiful body and not your beautiful and ugly mind. You are worth everything.

So don't let the lust of men/women deceive you. Don't put all your trust into someone until they earn it. Life will let you down and sometimes it feels as if life is personally trying to make you fall, but it's up to you to find your worth.

Allow yourself to acknowledge your mistakes, your fears, your demons, and insecurities. Just don't let them take control and lead your life because you are worth more than the stars and earth combined, darling.

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.

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.
