To The One Who Feels Lost

It's okay not to be okay.

To The One Who Feels Lost

Life is messy. We constantly have things thrown at us that we don't think we can recover from. We have a bad day and tell ourselves that we can't get back up. We get yelled at in class, something goes wrong at work, a friend decides they don't want to continue the friendship anymore, or a lover tells you that they don't want you anymore.

These are just a few situations that people around the world are going through as we speak. Every single day, we face hardships. We have days where we feel like everything is going wrong, days that we don't even know what to do with ourselves anymore.

These situations can result in feeling lost. At the point where one feels lost, they don't know what to do with themselves. Multiple things go bad and suddenly, we start to question everything in our lives; even the good. We question our jobs, our majors, our schoolwork, our family life and our relationships. Nothing feels right anymore and we don't know what to do.

But, here's the thing about being lost. It is TEMPORARY.

The one thing that people don't understand is that it's normal to feel lost.

In life, we have to question things more than once because we want to make sure we're making the right choices. We have to go through hardships because they will make us stronger in the long run.

Feeling lost in life is crucial at least one or twice, or honestly however many times until we feel like we finally have it figured out.

DO NOT settle for a life that you don't believe is good enough for you.

It's okay to feel lost.

It's okay not to be okay.

I promise you, that no matter how you're feeling right now - you're going to find your way home.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
