To The One Who Tore Down My Walls

Allowing you into my life and letting you in has been one of the best decisions I unknowingly made. I am a better person because of you.

To The One Who Tore Down My Walls

To the one who tore down my walls,

You have conquered the impossible. You destroyed all the years of advice of “Don’t let your guard down”, “You can never be too careful” and “Never trust the intentions of anyone else”. This was easy advice to take though because I only ever shared the superficial things about my life.

Insecurities, hard lessons learned and being in high school when most things were temporary, made dating a difficult thing for me, personally. The thought of someone seeing me on my horrible, difficult and gloomy days made my heart race with fear and anxiety. I simply could not handle the possibility of being judged or left because I am only human. Less than a year ago, things changed.

I met you.

I met you and did not think that you would ever mean this much to me. Sure, I had doubts and worries about where things would be left at the end the summer when I went away to college, but because of you, I lost every worry in the world. I felt like I knew you long before you came in my life.

From the loud singing to ridiculous throwback songs and the sincere three-hour long phone calls, I would not change one thing about our relationship. I wouldn’t call anyone else but you on all my horrible, difficult and gloomy days because talking to you makes things better. I do not care how bad or little the situation may be, I want to turn to you.

You learned to love me while I was still learning to love myself. I thought that college would come and go before I found someone who was as goal-oriented and compassionate about what they want in life like you. I did not think I would find someone who would accept me for everything and all that I am.

Allowing you into my life and letting you in has been one of the best decisions I unknowingly made. I am a better person because of you. You make me laugh much harder, you never fail to make me smile or to make my heart race. I cry more tears of joy and love much more than I ever have. From the adorable good morning texts to the jokes that make me want to roundhouse kick you, I would not change one thing about you and most importantly us.

Thank you for ruining my plans of being alone forever, tearing down my walls and making me trust again.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
