To The Person That Broke Me

While you did everything you could to ruin me, it's you who I feel sorry for.

To the person who broke me.

You took me for everything I was and everything I had. I fell for your stupid games, I thought you were genuine when you were with me, but looking back now I can see all of the lies. I can see all the faults that I just happened to overlook.

However strange it may be, thank you. Because you showed me who I was when I had nothing and nobody. You showed me that I don't need anyone in order to be happy. You showed me that I can survive with nothing. You showed me how truly strong I am. You showed me that I deserve nothing but the best in my life.

While you did everything you could to ruin me, it's you who I feel sorry for. Because I know I can make it through anything like this with or without anyone supporting me. I know that I am strong enough to live my life regardless of what happens to me. I have been through hell thanks to you but that hell showed me who I truly am as a person.

But I feel sorry for you. Why? Because you are that person that hurts others to feel better about yourself. Because you think it's okay to treat someone like they are nothing. You think that you can ruin other peoples lives just to get a confidence boost for yourself.

However, while you may think that is true, it's not. Yes at the time I was hurt, but now? Now I am stronger than I have ever been. I'm healthier than I have been in ages. And for the first time in a long time, I am happy and confident in myself.

Since losing you, I have gotten myself a job, I pay my own bills. I have gone off of my medications and am still quite successful being off of them. I have continued my education and am doing a million times better than I was back when I was with you. I get dressed up, I go out, I have fun, I can enjoy myself, I have friends, and most importantly I can and do put myself first in my life.

People constantly say "kill them with kindness" when someone tries to talk down to you or ruin you. In a way, yes that's true. However, I don't have to be kind to someone who tried to take everything from me and didn't even care enough to give me the time of day. I don't have to give you the time of day when you come crawling back to me because you decided that I'm good enough to talk to now that I have something that you want.

So no, I guess I won't kill you with kindness. But rather I will treat you the way you treated me. I won't respond to you, I won't acknowledge you and I will be the bigger person in that sense. I will not cause drama, I will not add fuel to the fire. Rather I will be the person who puts the fire out on my end. What happens on your end is up to you, but I have no need to associate with you nor do I wish to.

I like to consider myself a better person from this experience. I live in a whole new light now that I have been through and gotten out of this situation. So in short, for a while yes you ruined me, congratulations. But you did not steal my happiness, rather you helped me find it.

Maybe one day you will understand what you do to others is wrong, but I'm not holding my breath. I don't really care to stick around to find out either.

So, thank you.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!

It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
