For My Ex-Friends, Thank You For Everything You Taught Me

We all have them, people we used to be really close with, but had a falling out, or just grew out of. To the people that we grew out of, or had a falling out that wasn't too big, here are a few things I think all ex-friends would like you to know.

For My Ex-Friends, Thank You For Everything You Taught Me

I will always wish the best for you.

I remember your hopes, dreams, ambitions. And I will ALWAYS wish you achieve all of that. I hope that everything you wish for, or work towards, you succeed in. That whatever obstacles may come your way, you overcome, in the best way possible. I hope that you get your degree, or reach that goal of whatever you decide to do with your life. That no matter how long, or difficult the journey is, you get there safely, and happy. I want nothing less than for you to achieve EVERY goal you set for yourself, now and in the future. I pray that if college doesn't turn out to be your journey, that you find it. And that no matter the criticism, or hatred, you may receive for going a different route in life. But mostly, and most importantly, I hope, and pray, that no matter what you decide to do, or don't do, you are completely, and wholeheartedly happy.

Don't let people put you or your dreams down.

Whether your dream is getting a degree, joining the military, going straight into the work force, or starting a family, I wish you go for it and ignore the haters. I pray that you have the support that you need to never give up, or get discouraged. I hope that with whatever you decide to do, you're doing it because YOU want to, and not because someone is making you. And that you do it with all your heart, because doing something without heart is no fun, and doesn't make you happy.

I pray you succeed. No matter how long, or how many obstacles, you encounter.

If it takes you minutes, weeks, or years, so be it. But don't settle, don't settle for less because you think "other people my age are already doing this, or aren't doing this". WHO CARES. If this were the case, no one would be where they are today. Some people find their passions within hours, some take years. You should not base your timeline off someone else's success. Everyone has their own obstacles, issues, ways of doing things. There's a reason no two people were made exactly the same. If this were the case, everyone in the world would be successful. Only YOU know what works for you, and whatever that may be, I pray that you are okay with it, and reach your goal.

Your secrets, are always safe with me.

No matter what made us stop being friends, know your secrets will always be safe with me. Just because we're not friends, doesn't mean the best friend code is out. It is ALWAYS in effect. I will take your secrets TO MY GRAVE. So don't ever worry about "oh we're not friends, she might tell everyone everything now", NO, these lips? Sealed. And I can only hope you feel, and do the same.
Just because we're not friends anymore, doesn't mean you can't still come to me.

We've all had these types of situations, there's that on person that you always go to about a certain situation, and at some point (hopefully never though), they are unavailable. For some, it may be the ONE person you told this specific thing to, and now, they're gone. If we just simply fell off, or didn't go our separate ways on bad terms, don't hesitate to come to me. Don't worry, especially if I KNOW I am this one person for you, I will always be available. We may not be the best of friends anymore, but I know you still need to vent that ONE specific issue.

I miss you.

There's been times where I went to text you, or walk up to you, or send you a tweet that reminded me of you. And then I realized, I can't do that anymore. And I don't think anything has hit as hard as that moment, where I realized you weren't there anymore, that I couldn't just text you this funny meme that reminded me of you. These moments, hurt the most. But they're reminders. Reminders that no matter what happened between us, you had an impact on my life that will always effect me. And for some, this thought, haunts us. Because it's like no matter what I may do, say, or see, a part of me will always miss, or think about you. But then I can also remember how much I've grown, or what I overcame to get where I am today. And missing people is okay. Being sad about something that is no longer there is okay. Be sad, miss that person, then remember who you are. Because whatever happened, brought you to where you are today. You learned from it, and grew into a better person.

Thank you.

Lastly, and probably most importantly, thank you. Thank you for everything that I learned during our friendship, however long or short it was. Thank you for helping me grow into the person I am today. Thank you for the memories you left me. Thank you for supporting me in whatever I did, and being my personal cheerleader, my coach, etc during our friendship. Thank you for being a milestone in my life that helped me get to where I am today, for helping mold me into the person I am. And also most importantly, I pray that you succeed, no matter what you decide to do with you life. Whatever you decide your path in life is, I hope you love whatever you end up doing, wholeheartedly.

And this is everything I want my ex-friends to know.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
