For The Moments When I Don't Feel Good Enough

Don't let someone's negative comments put a dent in your determination!

For The Moments When I Don't Feel Good Enough
Sade Yinger

We all have those moments where we are trying our hardest and still feel like we are disappointing someone. No matter what we do, we feel a slight judgment from someone.

Remember you don't have to live up to someone else's standards. No one else knows the issues you face and how many tribulations you have to overcome in order to succeed. Don't let anyone judge you and say you're not enough. I know you are trying your hardest to continue to progress. I see you making strides to be successful. Those strides can come in so many different ways. Remember your current phase of life can look completely different from someone else's. Everyone was given different circumstances to live in, hence giving everyone a different path to success.

Everyone faces different obstacles whether that be financial blockers, mental health, or issues in the relationships in life. Take your obstacles and embrace them; learn from them and continue moving on. Don't let an obstacle stop you. Don't ever give up because of the circumstances you were given. Don't listen to criticism because no one has gone through your situation so they can never truly understand the pain you went through just to keep on moving. It's not easy to continue after so many hardships have knocked you down and made it feel impossible. I want to tell you it is possible to keep going if you work smart and work hard.

At the end of the day keep in mind that a job is a job. At least you're working hard at what you do. At least you enjoy your job and leave work feeling accomplished. A vehicle is a vehicle! No matter the make or model, rock whatever car you drive! It gets you where you need to go, that's all that matters. An apartment is still home! You have a place to stay, you aren't homeless. Just remember that every single milestone is IMPORTANT and you should never feel bad for what point you're at on your journey.

Keep pushing through the hard times and eventually, you can continue to succeed. My wish is that everyone can overcome the bad times in order to see all the great things that can come from it. So don't let someone's negative comments put a dent in your determination! Slowly but surely, through trial and error, you will succeed! Everyone's versions of success look different and that's what keeps our society afloat. Everyone has their version of success and their way of getting there. Even if your way isn't the most conventional or easy, you still found a way to succeed and that's all that matters.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
