This One's For The Underdogs

This one's for the people who were told they weren't good enough. This one's for the people who can't seem to catch a break.

This one's for the people who were told they weren't good enough. This one's for the people who can't seem to catch a break. This one's for the underdogs.

I'm talking about the people that have made it farther than they were ever supposed to go. You started from the bottom and look where you are now. Despite all the odds that were ever stacked against you, you made it.

Remember when life was much harder than it is now? Remember when you thought that life was too hard to push through, but you did it anyway? Remember when you had people, night and day, tell you that you could never make it because you just weren't good enough?

Underdog, never forget your accomplishments. You proved people wrong by making it through the hardest and the worst parts of life. There is no shame in keeping your head held high because you are good enough to do so.

We're not all handed the best parts of life when we're born. Some people are born into situations that would make any human being want to give up and throw in the towel, but the fact that you were able to move past the sucky situations that life handed to you in a testament to how great you are.

You may not have had or have all the money in the world and you may not have more cars than you need or more houses than you can live in like all the other "successful" people in the world, but you have experiences that are worth more than all of those things combined.

As underdogs, we all have that one day or days where we can vividly remember wanting to quit trying to make something of ourselves. But that day is now in the past and that is no small feat. Having the drive and the wisdom to plow through is a lot more than some can say they've ever done.

Screw all the riches in the world and forget all the people that told you that it couldn't be done because here you are. Look at what you've done and who you've become. There is no one that is and there will never be anyone like you ever in the universe.

So this one's for you, the underdogs, because you weren't supposed to get this far. You weren't supposed to be this great. You weren't supposed to prove people wrong, but you did anyway. This one's for the underdogs because you make this world a better place. You make life worth living.

"New Girl" is one of the best sitcoms of all time. Honestly, it is so much fun to watch, so much fun to relate to, just all around a great show.

Not only is a great show, it has so many different great settings, obviously including the loft. If you live by Nick Miller quotes and desperately tried to learn how to play "True American," you need to buy these things because you are a true "New Girl" fan.

5 At-Home Therapy Tips You Need, No Matter What Your Therapy Routine Is

Whether you're in a Zoom session or live-chatting, make sure your home therapy space is good to go.

No matter what stigmas you held about therapy before this year, I'm sure 2020 has affirmed that we could ALL use a nice long therapy session. Between wildfires that took over an entire continent, a global health crisis, and what's sure to be one giant circus of an election in the United States, we need help and we need it now.

The fact of the matter is, therapy has been a helpful, valid resource long before the world decided to become one giant dumpster fire. Having a safe space to discuss what's going on in your life, worries you have, and struggles you're facing has become a very normal thing for individuals' mental health.
