You are blessed and you are loved by many. So please ignore those negative thoughts that tell you otherwise.

You’re a friendly person, a social butterfly, making friends wherever you are, wherever you go. You touch many hearts with your fun personality and caring demeanor.

Have Your Voice Heard: Become an Odyssey Creator

However, I understand because there are days when you feel like there is no one to hang out with. All your friends are busy hanging out with someone else or you check your social media and see that all your friends are in their respective groups hanging out and having fun. You question why it’s hard for you to belong anywhere.

But I just want to let you know that you’re important. You’re not overlooked. You’re not forgotten. You are truly loved despite what your inner thoughts are saying in your head. You may not belong to a certain group of friends. But the fact that you are welcomed to so many groups says so much about your personality.

The fact that you have so many friends means that you have many whom you can rely on and who can rely on you.

You’re not the only person who feels this way. In fact, I know this feeling of loneliness. I also feel self-doubt in my ability to have friends and keep them. I, too, question why I can’t have one group of friends that I can constantly rely on.

But I realize now that it’s silly for me and you to feel this way. It’s not about belonging. It’s about doing. It’s about being there for others even if they aren’t there for you. It’s about giving love as much as your heart can allow. It’s not about being special, but making others feel special.

Stop looking for a place to belong. You’re not the type of person that belongs to one group. You’re meant to bring happiness to so many more. Cheers to you who doesn’t belong in one place. You’re a friend that everyone loves, and that should be more than enough to make you realize that you belong in a special place in their hearts.

Nowadays, we put so much emphasis on our looks. We focus so much on the outside that we forget to really focus on what matters. I was inspired by a list that I found online of "Things I Would Rather Be Called Instead Of Pretty," so I made my own version. Here is a list of things that I would rather be than "pretty."

1. Captivating

I want one glance at me to completely steal your breath away.

2. Magnetic

I want people to feel drawn to me. I want something to be different about me that people recognize at first glance.

3. Raw

I want to be real. Vulnerable. Completely, genuinely myself.

4. Intoxicating

..and I want you addicted.

5. Humble

I want to recognize my abilities, but not be boastful or proud.

6. Exemplary

I want to stand out.

7. Loyal

I want to pride myself on sticking out the storm.

I want you to be hanging on every word I say.

9. Empathetic

I want to be able to feel your pain, so that I can help you heal.

10. Vivacious

I want to be the life of the party.

I want to be crazy. Thrilling. Unpredictable. I want to keep you guessing, keep your heart pounding, and your blood rushing.

12. Philanthropic

I want to give.

13. Philosophical

I want to ask the tough questions that get you thinking about the purpose of our beating hearts.

14. Loving

When my name is spoken, I want my tenderness to come to mind.

15. Quaintrelle

Even if you've known me your whole life, I want strange, yet marvelous. Rare and wondrous.

22. Pierian

From the way I move to the way I speak, I want to be poetic.

23. Esoteric

Do not mistake this. I do not want to be misunderstood. But rather I'd like to keep my circle small and close. I don't want to be an average, everyday person.

24. Authentic

I don't want anyone to ever question whether I am being genuine or telling the truth.

25. Novaturient

..about my own life. I never want to settle for good enough. Instead I always want to seek to make a positive change.

26. Observant

I want to take all of life in.

27. Peart

A College Girl's Thoughts On The Podcast 'Call Her Daddy'

Alex and Sofia, if you need a third member, I am available.

If you haven't heard of the podcast "Call Her Daddy" you must be living under a rock. So crawl out and let me enlighten you. This podcast is not only life-changing but is building a bridge to mend the confusion and weird small talk between girls and guys. There have always been assumptions that girls who are sexually comfortable with themselves are sluts. You can try to say I'm wrong, but it's there. It's everywhere. Alex and Sofia are changing the way that girls see their sexuality and the way guys view sexually open girls.

I think it is freaking awesome.

I have always been the girl with no filter who says whatever she is thinking, so when I first heard this podcast I felt so at home. I love knowing that there are other girls out there who will say whatever they want and not worry about what other people think. If you aren't really an openly sexual person you can still learn something from this podcast. I think more people should unapologetically be themselves and live life how they want to.

I have felt so empowered since listening to this podcast.

Alex and Sofia are cracking the codes and exposing all the weirdness girls and guys feel about each other. Helping girls know how to respond to texts, how to get the guy you like to notice you, how to be confident in your relationships. It's so uplifting and lighthearted. Believe it or not, these girls actually know what they are talking about. I also love that they both are so confident that they can tell their embarrassing stories. Media today and social influencers would never admit to pooping outside in their yard (Episode 20), but I'm sure they have gross stories. We are human and we can be nasty sometimes. It's OK!!!

You might as well laugh at yourself instead of feeling bad.

On the sexual end of things, I think this podcast is educational while still being funny. When you're in college, you are not going to your mom anymore about boys. Much less asking her for sexual advice. I think Alex and Sofia answer basic questions on how to be safe and how to be great (lol). Even if you aren't sexually active, you can keep their ideas under your belt while you wait for that special someone.

All in all, I am absolutely a #DaddyGang member. I have the merch, I listen to every podcast, I freaking love these girls. We all should live more carefree and not worry so much about what other people think.

Alex and Sofia, hire me.
