For When You Don't Believe You Can Go On Any longer

You have to realize that every single moment up to this one- you have overcome. Every terrifying moment in which you questioned whether or not you could continue surviving- you have made it through every last one. You have to realize that you do not give yourself enough credit. You don't believe in the worthiness of yourself enough. You don't believe in yourself enough.

It's so hard but sometimes in life you have to pick yourself up. You have to be real with yourself. When you need help, you have to ask the people around you for help because I guarantee they will be more than happy to help if it means keeping you going another day, and another one, and another. You have to realize you are loved. The people around you love you and they want you here.

You have purpose. Even on your worst days, you are a beautiful soul of sunshine and light and all things good and worthwhile. Life gets hard. Life gets stressful. Sometimes, each of us feels a deep pitter-patter in our hearts, causing contemplation as to whether or not we actually have enough strength left as to go on. You have that strength. It's buried so deep in your heart that sometimes it is difficult to even see it. Find a flashlight and look, deep down where you have never soul-searched before. It's so difficult to turn the flashlight's switch on sometimes... You are so out of energy and you are so tired, fatigued, and exhausted. You don't think you have any more energy to give. You just want to give up and give in, throw the towel in and say, "I'm beat. I'm done." But-these are the moments where life is testing you.

You can't lose hope. Hope is the only thing that is stronger than anything else in life- fear, anxiety, anger, worry, stress. Hope is what is going to allow you to dig yourself out of the most difficult situations.

Life is worth living. You are worth it. Please, please don't give in to the pressures and anxieties and stresses of life. Life is worth it. you are worth it, you have purpose, and you have enough strength to continue on even in the toughest of times. Just know, you are loved, even when you are at your worst and believe nothing will ever get better,

Life will get better. It is at the deepest, darkest moments of our lives that we discover ourselves for who we truly are. Nothing worth having in life comes easy. You have to fight even when you don't think you can get on any longer.

I believe in you. But it is you who must believe in yourself.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

7716

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.
