To The Ones Who Feel Alone, You're In Good Company

No matter how hard it gets, there is always a brighter day ahead.

To The Ones Who Feel Alone, You're In Good Company

Life, especially college life, is a rollercoaster. Some days you may be on top of the world, other days you may feel completely defeated by it. I've definitely felt my fair share of both. Everyone does. It's part of living a real life. There is no such thing as a "perfect" day, week, month, semester, or year. It may seem perfect sometimes, and it may seem the opposite others, but that is OK. That is the way it should be.

Perhaps the most important piece to learn to accept this imperfection is realizing that no matter how great (or awful) life may seem, you are not alone.

That is something I have always struggled with, and I know that I am not the only one. Through the highest highs and the lowest lows, you are never alone. It is easy to "ride the highs," but the worst of the lows are always the hardest to endure.

Maybe it was a tough final that you did not do as well on as you had hoped. Perhaps it was a friendship or relationship that unraveled despite your best attempt to save it. It could be a struggle with your family. No matter how hard it may get, though, know that you are never alone. Never.

Everyone has their own coping strategy when the going gets tough. Some people are vocal, others are not. Some may choose to share what they are going through while others do not. More often than not, it seems to be the latter, and that is part of the problem. The worst part of feeling alone is not knowing that, in fact, you are not the only one feeling this way.

No matter where you are at, whether it is the highest high or the lowest low, do not be ashamed of it. I have done it myself, and trust me, it only makes things worse. Reach out. No matter what you are going through, I am sure that someone you know has felt the same struggle. You may not know it, but you are not alone.

Try your absolute hardest not to let it stop you from being happy. Some of the most fun nights of my life have started out as I was feeling alone. Call a friend, even a distant one. Make plans. Jump on the Xbox, go out on the town, or do whatever it takes to surround yourself with interaction. Try your very hardest to push the low out of your mind, even if just for the night. Relax, revel at the moment, and enjoy. It will get better. I promise.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
