Yes, I’ve Messed Up A Lot But No, I’m Not Going To Keep Apologizing For My Mistakes

I do not have it together all the time!!!

Yes, I’ve Messed Up A Lot But No, I’m Not Going To Keep Apologizing For My Mistakes
Lindsey Ocock

Someone out there needs to hear this. We've all made mistakes and there is no reason to be constantly apologizing. If you truly hurt someone then obviously you should apologize, but if you didn't hurt anyone why should you say sorry?

All I ever do is apologize or feel bad for mistakes I made.

We've all made choices that maybe weren't the best for us.

We've all worn crocs or ugly sandals.

We've all kissed the wrong boy or invested time in friendships that were one-sided.

We've all drank too much.

And these are all things that are normal and parts of growing up. I'm still growing up and I'm not going to be 40 or 50 years old and still making these mistakes. I'm only 20 and there's no way I'm going to wake up tomorrow and have it completely together.

You are the gatekeeper of everything that enters your mind. If you wanna be strong stop manufacturing things in your mind that make you feel weak.

It's toxic for me to constantly feel bad about choices I made in moments of bad judgment.

I'm a little immature or dramatic or a mess at times, but we're all working out it — each morning I want to wake up and try to be better than I was yesterday.

I care about people and I want to be a better person today than I was yesterday.

So, why the hell should I spend today worrying, stressing and saying sorry for all my mistakes?

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.


I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.

A letter to my friend I’ll love forever

“It’s sad but sometimes when two people come to the end of the road they have to take different paths”

A letter to my friend I’ll love forever

It started way back in 2014, the very first time I saw you, you had long blonde hair and bright green eyes and a smile that was infectious. You where holding my favorite cousins hand, you didn’t say much at first and neither did I.

How My Long Distance Relationship Changed Me

My personal experience on distance and dating

Bayly Grosskopf

I never thought I would be the kind of person to be in a long distance relationship. I always though that it was selfish to be with someone when you can't really BE with them. I grew up not having a very good example of relationships in my life. My parents were divorced at age nine and I had to mature a lot faster than most, and I never really got to experience that "one big, happy, family" scenario that every other small town American family seemed to have. I never imagined myself to be okay with seeing someone every once in awhile and practically dating a technological device because you couldn't actually be with the person in real life.
