20 Things to Thank Your Person For

Your person can be your high school sweetheart, your best friend since kindergarten, your college roommate, or your current spouse. Whoever your person-of-honor may be, here are 20 things you probably forgot to thank them for.

1. Putting up with you.

First and foremost, your person probably deserves an award for putting up with you.

2. Listening to you.

Your problems are also your person's problems. Vent sessions are a regular thing.

3. Dissecting text messages with you.

Your person isn't really your person if you don't send them screenshots of text conversations and ask for their interpretation. Your person is there at the ready, prepared to dive into in-depth analysis at a moment's notice.

4. Serving as your personal reminder for everything.

Where you forget, your person remembers. Chances are your person knows your schedule better than you do.

5. And your alarm clock.

As long as your person is around, you won't sleep through an 8 AM lecture (unless they're sleeping in, too).

6. And your therapist.

When going through a break up, your person will without a doubt show up at your house with a carton of Ben & Jerry's and your favorite chick flick in ten seconds flat. They're your shoulder to cry on.

9. For making you laugh, even when you want to cry.

No one knows you, or your sense of humor, as well as your person does. So even when you want to cry, your person is there to cheer you up with a funny memory, a good joke, or a cringe-worthy pun.

10. For binge-watching (and eating) with you.

You and your person are so comfortable together that there is no shame in vegging out in sweatpants, and stuffing your faces with an entire gallon of ice cream while watching trash TV.

11. For staying in with you when you don't feel like going out.

Whenever you're feeling down, or just too lazy to go out, your person won't hesitate to stay in with you.

12. But also for never making you go anywhere alone.

Even if it's just to the grocery store, your person is right there by your side. If you want your person to be there, they will be.

13. For stepping up whenever you need help.

Whether it's your calculus homework or cleaning out your closet, your person is right by your side, more than willing to help. Whether they can actually help or not is beside the point.

14. For always being honest.

Your person will always give their honest opinion when you ask if this dress makes you look fat.

15. For never staying mad at you for long.

Whether you and your person fight once a week or once a year, because they love you so much and you two have so much fun together, your person never stays mad at you for more than a few hours (if that). You miss each other too much to be fighting!

16. For being on your side no matter what.

Regardless of the situation, your person will always take your side. Someone said something mean to you? Consider them shunned. Your person will stick up for you always, and won't let anyone push you around (except for them, of course.)

17. For laughing at your jokes even when they're not funny.

18. For supporting you in everything you do.

No matter what you chose to get involved in, your person will always support your decisions and will always be your number one fan. Job you're interested in? Go for it! Trying out for the volleyball team? You go, girl!

19. For assuring you that everything is going to be okay.

20. For loving you no matter what.

Your person sees you at your lowest points, as well as your highest, and they love you anyway. There aren't too many people you will find in your life who give you unconditional love, so cherish them!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
