Unconventional Ways to Show People You Love Them

Subtle Ways To Show People That You Love Them

Because saying I Love You just isn't enough sometimes!


Sometimes, it's hard to get through to people when they're having a difficult time. We all experience rough patches in our lives and have to lean on our friends or family. Here are some ways to help your friends or loved ones that they are cared for and important to you. Actions speak so much more than words of encouragement.

1. Stop by their favorite food place to pick them up a snack!


Everyone loves a little break from work, and what better way to do that than food? Snacks keep us motivated, and taking the initiative and remembering their favorite food shows that you care about their likes/disliked. Guaranteed best part of my day if my friend brought me my favorite snack.

2. Organize an activity that you've always wanted to do together.


Sometimes, all it takes is getting away from routine. Weeks can blend together when all you're doing is work and sleep, so switching things up and doing that bike ride or game night is a great way to reach out to someone you love.

3. Send them cute dog videos/memes/tweets.


My brain always lights up when my friends send me pictures or funny things! It shows that you know what they like. It's a subtle way of saying, this reminds me of you and I took the time out of my day to make sure you saw it.

4. Make a list of all the things you appreciate about them.


I love the idea of this because it's a great way to remind someone of their little quirks and how they contribute to the world. Sometimes, we forget how special we are and this is a great reminder!

5. Remind them of how much they mean to you out of the blue.


Receiving (and SENDING) these texts will warm your heart guaranteed! Yes, they're mushy but it's 100% worth it to put how you feel into words.

It's February so it reminds everyone of Valentines Day, and often times that has negative connotations for many people. Rather than dwell on negative feelings towards love/all that gushy stuff, I urge you to remind the people you have in your life how much they mean to you.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.

3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

4. When your parents get tired of you calling them about every little inconvenience in your life.

5. Sitting down to work on assignments.

6. Your thoughts when the professor is telling you what they want from you out of an assignment.

You're finally back to your old self.

5 Things To Think About During Trans Week Of Visibility

You should always think of your trans friends, but especially during this week.


Trans week of visibility is March 25 through March 31, these are the five things you should keep in mind during those days (and at all times).

1. Using The Correct Pronouns Are Extremely Important


If you do not know which pronouns to use, just ask. When talking to a trans person do not assume their pronouns, hell- don't assume a cisgender persons pronouns it is always better to ask someones pronouns when you first start talking to them. Using the correct pronouns is a major step in accepting trans people and it makes us feel so much more accepted, loved, and respected. It isn't that hard to do, so just ask.

2. Dead Names Are Dead For A Reason


If you know a trans persons dead name, DO NOT SHARE IT WITH OTHERS. It is dead for a reason. When trans people change their name (or pronouns) it is to reflect how they truly feel on the inside and show it to the outside world. This is something that is personal and should not be shared with anyone. Deadnaming a trans person is violent. Once a trans person has told you "Hey, I go by this name now", use that new name. Embrace it, love it, accept it, move on.

3. Never Ask What Genitals Trans People Have Or Which Bathroom They Use


First off, this is none of your business and why do you want to know? This is very private information and unless you're a doctor performing surgery or a doctor treating a patient you do not need to know what genitals a person has. Nobody needs to know which bathroom a person uses. That's all I have to say about this. Just don't do either of these things.

4. The World Isn't That Safe For Us, So Please Try To Make It Safer


Most of us are afraid to come out, even if you have been by our side no matter what or you have made comments that you would support us if we were trans. We are terrified because we know what the world is like for trans people. We see that the world we live in is a scary place for minorities and we are one of them. Being trans isn't easy, but coming out is one of the most freeing feelings in the world because you finally get to let the world in on who you truly are. It's all a scary process. If we come out to you, or even if we don't- just try to make the world safer for trans people. It's our cisgender allies that make the world safer for us. Without you all there is no change.

5. Love Us, Respect Us, Support Us


That's all we ask.
