Sometimes You Just Have To Let Go

Sometimes You Just Have To Let Go

Keeping the balance is the key to a happy life.

I am an absolute pro at stressing over the smallest things. Lying in bed at night, I will stress about what shoes I will wear with my outfit and wondering if they will match. There’s no need to worry about that at 12 am, but that’s just what I do. I will also sit in class and stress about all the things I need to get done that day, when I can’t do anything about it right then.

Over the years I’ve learned that sometimes you just have to let go. This can be letting go of a class that is just too much, letting go of a task on your to-do list or letting go of a friend that isn’t much of a friend anymore. It’s important to learn this lesson before life gets to be too much.

My wise dad has always taught me to keep the balance. I’m grateful to have learned this lesson young, because it’s saved me from having extra stress in my life. Whenever I was stressing over all the homework I had to do, even though I’d been working on homework all day, he would come in my room and say, “Remember to keep the balance kid”. This can be taken in various ways. Sometimes it meant a five-minute break and other times it meant to go hang out with my friends for the night. It’s all about making sure your life is balanced and you’re not stressing yourself out too much.

Keeping the balance is just like letting go. Sometimes you have to let go of that homework assignment because you’re just so exhausted. There have been so many nights where I’m burnt out from school work that I wouldn’t do an assignment because I physically couldn’t do anymore. I was so worried that because of missing that one assignment, I would be a failure in life. Here I am, years later, and I’m doing just fine.

Letting go of a friend can be hard. You love them and don’t want to end a friendship, but some friendships are more bad than good. When a friendship becomes draining to you, it needs to end. There is no reason to hurt and be used in a friendship. Letting go of a friend can sometimes be the best thing you can do for yourself. It’s okay to be selfish sometimes because you need to take care of yourself.

The most important thing to remember is to take care of yourself. Being aware of the situations you’re in and how you react to these situations is the first step to being a better person. Letting go of that assignment that is stressing you out to the point that you want to cry or quitting the sports team because it’s more stress than fun is an important lesson to learn. Cutting out the things that are holding you back from being the best you can be will benefit you in the long run, and will make life easier.

13 Gross Things Girls Do That Boys Don't Know About

From a girl, about girls.

There's always talk about how gross boys are all the time, it's now time to talk about how gross maybe even how much more disgusting girls can be. It may not even be disgusting, but just weird, but we are girls. What can we say?

1. Gorilla legs.

It's not that we don't want to...okay, that was a lie. Every girl can agree that they only shave during bathing suit season when you're wearing a dress, or when you're gonna get it on. Basically, If she shaves her legs you're special.

2. When did I last wash this bra again?

We wear the same exact bra, for days, and weeks, and who knows for how long.

3. It's not just the bra's, it's the pants too.

We wear jeans and leggings like twenty times before we think about washing them.

4. We don't wash our hair every day.

Because unwashed hair is the best styling hair. Also because looking good takes too much work.

5. We are always picking at our faces, especially pimples.

As soon as we walk by a mirror, its a must. Car mirrors are awesome to pop those suckers and pluck rampant eyebrow hairs. We pop pimples like its our job.

6. We will live in your clothes.

If you somehow let your significant other or friend wear your sweatshirt you're never getting it back... and she's never taking it off. Girls will wear that sh*t until your scent is gone because we love it.

7. We poop.

Believe it or not... it happens to us too. Women don't make it as much as a show as boys do. We hide it from you and will hold it until you're not around. And you've probably received a lot of selfies on the toilet.

8. The dreaded monthly gift.

Probably the most disgusting thing to ever happen to the human body. But everyone knows about menstruating, but most guys don't understand the other things that come along with it, like the cramps that bring period farts and the nasty bowel movements and blood clots.

9. Finding hair from our head in our butt cheeks.

Yeah, it's a thing. Your head hair crawls it's way down there occasionally.

10. We smell ourselves a lot.

We are super conscious about how we smell...especially down there.

11. We let it fly.

We will hold in our farts from you, but as soon as we are alone... that's a different story. You better hope we don't get too comfortable around you too quick.

12. Sometimes we have to improvise.

Sometimes mother nature likes to come when we aren't ready, or prepared with the supplies. There are numerous occasions where we start bleeding and have to create this bundle of toilet paper and just shove it down there.

13. Looking at our panties and trying to figure out what came out.

Sometimes you just don't know for sure.
