This One Is For The Girls That Think They Aren't Good Enough

You are good enough, just believe.

This One Is For The Girls That Think They Aren't Good Enough
Courtney Phillips

This one is for the girls that think they aren't good enough. I want you to stop right there…YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH! Don't you dare sit there and think any less of yourself. Don't you even dare let some fool make you feel any less of yourself.

I am going to be the first to tell you... I am that girl that lets fools make me feel less of myself. I am that girl that thinks she isn't good enough. I am going to tell you why I feel this way right now.

My entire life I have always been someone's second option, I am never a first choice. After a while that gets old and starts to tear me down. So, therefore, it makes me feel like I am not good enough for anyone. Especially in the male department, I am always the second option or something like that. It makes me feel like I am not pretty enough or something. I also never really get the chance to be myself before they end up leaving, which makes me wonder if I really am that bad to talk to. I personally cannot handle this feeling anymore. I have been broken down so many times it's not even funny at this point.

I lately have been finding myself wondering, "Why did I ever care what people thought?" Well, I'll tell you why! It's because TV shows/movies make it seem like we should be living in this world with unrealistic expectations of how things should be.

I have come to the realization that the only person that really matters is you. The only person's opinion that matters is your own. You don't have to prove to anyone what you're worth as long as you are happy. That boy you are stressing over doesn't mean anything, and yes, I said boy, because no man would make you feel worthless!

So to those of you that are struggling with this, keep on shining babygirl, you are stronger than you think!

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
