Trust Issues

"If there is no trust, there is no us"

Trust Issues

Having people you trust in your life is very important. Whether it’s your friends, members of your family, potential partners, or your actual partners; trust is the key to everything. Not having trust in these people makes your life a lot harder because now you feel that it is necessary to not be yourself and always watch what you say in front of them. Growing up, I never really had trust issues; I felt that I could trust everyone right off the bat. This alone led me to realize not everyone is who they say they are and people change from what they used to be to what they are now because of how they trust people. This led to me having a lot of trust issues in my future. I have indeed lost a lot of friends and partners due to lack of trust. Like everyone usually, I would try and give second chances to them but this is not something you should always be doing. I learned the hard way of giving chances to people who truly don't deserve them and I have learned that people do actually learn from their past in order to create a better future for themselves. When you lose someone due to lack of trust, it creates a consistent negative preconceived notion that you cannot trust everyone no matter who they are. You immediately start doubting everyone in your life because of that one person; it is truly unfair to you and to the people in your life who are actually there for you. Trust is something so easy to gain and so easy to lose at the same time. It is not fair to anyone to give them a reason to doubt your every move and everything you say. The feeling of being trusted by people is a blessing. Not everyone these days are easy to trust so when you have certain people in your life no matter who they are, do not give them a reason to doubt and I am sure they won't either. I felt the need to write this because of the amount of trust issues I have realized that I have had over the years. Keep the ones you trust close to you and the ones you do not trust are not worth your time anymore; do not feel that you always have to give chances to these people in your life because you knew them. Some people are meant to be temporary. I am going to end with a quote but it is unknown who the originator is: "If there is no trust there is no 'us'."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
