To The Person That's Not Ok

You've said you'll be ok… but you won't be.You won't be ok because you're not admitting what the true problem is. You know who you are because you have an unexplainable pit in your stomach as you read all of this. You know you're loved, but you can't see the love others have because of your sickness.

The last time you were confronted, you decided the problem was everyone gaining up on you. You couldn't hear the rationality, you could only hear the ridicule. They tried only speaking with concern, and deep down you know that, but you can't admit that's what it was. The last time they tried speaking was not the first, and I'm sure it won't be the last, but this circle is destroying them.

It runs in the family. From grandparents to actual parents. There is no shame in admitting you have what they have. Please don't think that way, because what if someone else inherits your sickness? What if they refuse to get help for the same thing?

You hurt your family by not getting help. Everyone will slowly become resentful to the point that they can barely speak to you. When they see you they are walking on eggshells because they don't want to set you off. They only speak to you when they desperately need to or in hopes of getting through to you. It's not supposed to be like that. The example being set in the household is not a proper one, and it's severely damaging the ability for anyone to form new relationships.

You always say that families on T.v aren't real, but why is the family you have so different from all of your friends. Why can some inappropriate topics be brought to your attention, while others must stay in the shadows? This behavior is not normal, and it's causing damage to those around you.

Isn't it tiring to feel like you're in a soap opera? The endless drama that causes stress, that frankly you and anyone around you can't handle. You're family...they look drained, tired, and detached. The stress can be seen on everyone's face, including yours.

Please get help. It will be hard, but it will help build a more stable environment. This time do not do it because you're falling apart. Don't do it because you think you have no support. Do it because you live in a home where everyone loves you, but no one can handle your behavior anymore. Do it because they never want to stop loving you, even though you make it so hard.

Your family truly does love you, even I can see that. So don't be afraid to reach out because once you do they'll all be there for you.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
