Three Toxic Wishes

Here's a story for all the fools in love.

Three Toxic Wishes

There's a few things you need to know before we start.

You only have three wishes, and you cannot wish for unlimited wishes. You cannot wish for someone to fall in love. You cannot wish for someone to die.

But this man, this man who tugs at your soul. You ache for his touch. This man doesn't love you, but you are willing to drag yourself through hell for him. You want so badly for him to love you back.

Your first wish is to become a goddess. You emit a beauty so bright that the sun cries and the stars die to be born again in your light. You move the oceans between his fingers and have the mountains waltz around him. But not even this much beauty and power can make him fall for you. He still doesn't love you.

You cannot wish for someone to die, so you erase him yourself. If you can't have him, no one else can. You're at the bottom of the staircase, crying and yelling. Your second wish is for forgiveness of your sins.

You are a sinner. You are a god. You are the ultimate paradox. You have one wish left. You have the world, the cosmos, and all of humanity at your fingertips. You have this unbearable pain in your heavy heart that you wished would be lifted a long time ago when you wished for forgiveness. You learn no amount of wishing and praying can get rid of your sins.

You wish for a happy ending.

You wish for and ending in which you are at peace and his spirit is free. You dig deep into your chest and rip out the rest of the love you have left and bury it with him. You grow a garden above his corpse; his arms and legs grow roots, and white tulips consume him. You make it a sacred garden for angels to come rest because you know they will love him better than you ever could.

You learn to love yourself before you dare love anyone else. You find the cracked mirror and take one last look at yourself before you fall at the edge of the world to dissolve into the endless emptiness of space. You hope for your name to be in museums one day. You hope to be a golden legend, and you keep falling, and you never want to stop to hit rock bottom.

I think that's what love is all about.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
