Read This When You Forget Your Worth

This isn't about them, it's about you.

Read This When You Forget Your Worth
Jordan Jewell

It's easy to forget how much value you truly have. Whether it's losing someone you love, experiencing a breakup, or dealing with body image issues, sometimes you just feel like you don't matter. Every person on this Earth is born with purpose and meaning, and the world wouldn't be the same without you. Read this article on days when you forget who you are and how much you matter.

When you feel bad about your appearance.

Negative thoughts lead to negative actions. Nobody looks like a supermodel every day of their life. In fact, most people very rarely look like supermodels. Imperfections and quirks make a person beautiful.

When a breakup leads to bargaining for affection.

Bargaining is one of the stages of grieving, it's natural, but when someone is unable to love you, that is not your fault. Instead of begging for their validation, take a look at yourself. You are worthy of love and if they can't give it to you, give it to yourself.

When you feel that you don't measure up to society's standards.

Whether you're curvy or skinny, loud or quiet, insecure or confident, you're not defined by any of those things. The only acceptance you need is the acceptance of yourself. You belong to yourself and no one else. If anyone has a problem with that, it's their problem.

When you don't think you're worthy.

Until you realize how important you are, people will walk all over you. Confidence is one of the most beautiful traits in the world. It isn't about being cocky, it's about realizing you deserve the same amount of respect you show to others.

When you're hoping someone else will make you feel beautiful.

Life isn't a fairytale and princes are very hard to come by. You don't have time to sit around and wait for someone to swoop in and save the day. Be your own hero and love yourself more than anyone else will.

At the end of the day, you are you and that is incredible. You're the only one who knows all of your secrets and all of your imperfections, so no one can love you as much as you love yourself.

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.
