Your Relationship Status Does Not Determine Your Worth

Just Because You're Single Doesn't Mean You Aren't Worth A Loving Relationship

The presence of a significant other doesn't define your beauty or worth.

the one who's single

Freshman year of high school: Maybe I'll finally date someone this year! It's high school now, after all, there has to be someonewho would be interested in me!

Graduating from high school: Maybe I just wasn't meant to date anyone in high school. Dating is overrated, anyway.

Throughout my childhood, I've never been the beautiful cheerleader or popular girl who every boy wanted to have a chance with. Instead, I've always watched everyone else's relationships from the sidelines, always wondering when it would be my turn to finally meet someone. While I've made peace with being single at this stage of my life (it's pointless to date senior year anyway, especially if you're moving seven hours away to your dream school and will likely only be back in your hometown once or twice a year), I didn't always feel this way.

With the beginning of high school comes the beginning of a multitude of relationships and new couples flourishing everywhere. It can be incredibly hard to watch this when you're single with no boys snapchatting you to hang out while all your friends' phones are constantly blowing up with messages from every guy in school. It's taken me years to accept the fact that God's plan for my life didn't include dating anyone in high school. Reflecting on the past four years now, I see the divinity in this plan as I head into my future. No one should be defined by their relationship status, and having a significant other makes no difference in your worth and value.

So to the one who's still single, you are worthy.

It's completely okay if you haven't found that person yet, the one who flips your world upside down whenever you lock eyes. It's okay if you haven't found the one you would cross time and space to be with, because if you're meant to find them, I promise you will. In fact, they're probably feeling the same way. The funny thing about love is how it hits you out of nowhere. It's the guy you bump into at the grocery store and keep running into everywhere you go. When two people are destined to meet, they will.

You are so much more than your relationship status. In case no one's told you yet, being single is actually a lot of fun. There's unparalleled freedom in being able to do as you please without having to consider someone else's feelings or opinions. You can move across the country or the globe, pursue any dream in your heart, and simply hang out with whoever you want whenever you want. God has an incredible person waiting for you, but don't waste your youth waiting for them. Live a life you love, and become someone you would be proud to call yours and marry someday.

In the end, the wait will be more than worth it when you find the one you're meant to spend eternity with.

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.

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.
