21 Quotes You Need To Read When You Feel That All Hope Is Lost
Lauren Schugg

This world has so many amazing people, and you are one of them. Everyone has their struggles, some more than others, but you are strong enough to overcome them. You don't have to fight your battles alone. I refuse to imagine a tomorrow without you in it—betters days are ahead.

Here are 21 not-so-common quotes about choosing life that will hopefully encourage you to see another day:

1. "You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living, breathing, screaming invitation to believe better things."

2. "You've gotten through every bad day you didn't think you could get through."

3. "Your way out of the dark will light the way for others."

4. "The truth is: the space you occupy on this planet is space well-deserved."

5. "There are some days where life is just about putting one foot in front of the other. And that's okay."

6. "We are all in this together, shouting back at the darkness, a little louder each day."

7. "It's okay to be honest and it's okay to ask for help. It's simply part of being human." 

8. "There will certainly be days worse than these. But a beautiful truth remains-- there will be better days, too."

9. "It's possible to live with scars, to feel the same pain you feel right now and to not hurt yourself because of it."

10. "If you're feeling alone, know that the world can be a lonely place. But it would be lonlier without you in it."

11. "Give yourself the opportunity of seeing what a year from now holds.Take a chance on yourself and choose to stay."

12. "I promise you, those thoughts of people not loving you or wanting you be with you are a lie."

13. "Please stay alive. For every future joy. For the next album you're going to love. For the best concert you haven't been to yet. For your wedding or your husband or your wife. For the kids you have or dream of having. Please stay alive to be surprised, by love and hope and help."

14. "You are not the heaviness sitting inside of you. You are not the battlefield where the bodies fall, and you are not the sound of cannons breaking the sky open. You are what happens after the war. The surviving. The healing. The recovering." 

15. "Free yourself from the idea that you aren't worthy of other people's time."

16. "On the days when life pushes me around, I will dig my heels in, reach for my strength, and choose to fight back."

17. "You belong in the light, and you can get there again. Don't believe anyone who tells you differently."

18. "You will shake in your skin. You will be more terrified than you have ever been. But you will be brave, and you will be okay."

19. "But while your heart has been broken and scarred, it is still beating."

20. "So what's next? You heal, you grow, and you help others."

21. "The most important part in recovery is taking the power back and allowing yourself to believe you deserve to win."

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember.

So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

The NBA is back, and for basketball fans, like myself, it has been the BEST news we have heard since COVID-19 shutdown play indefinitely. I mean, come on, we need to see if James Harden can once again perform so well he has back-to-back 50 point games, Kawhi can lead another team to the championship title, and whether Giannis is going to be back-to-back MVP... among like 500 other things running through our heads!

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
