5 Things That Happen When You Learn To Love Yourself

You're happier than you've ever been

5 Things That Happen When You Learn To Love Yourself
Brian Mchugh

So many beautiful things happen when you finally open your stubborn heart and learn to love yourself.

1. You accept your flaws and imperfections.

You'll find bruises aren't worth beating yourself up and put-downs won't ever lift you higher. You are you for a reason, quirks and mistakes and all. Adore who you are, what you've got, where you're at, and none of that minuscule nonsense will matter.

2. Your confidence raises through the roof.

Now that you've realized how amazing you are, nothing can stop you. No fear, no intimidation. You are self-assured in your actions here on out, and damn proud of them. Good for you, honestly. Not many people are considered to be this brave.

3. You stop feeling incomplete.

The search for more is put to rest. Because you are whole on your own. You fulfill yourself more than another human could. They'd just be an added bonus to your awesomeness.

4. You're ready to love another, the right way.

They say you must truly love yourself before properly loving another. And that's quite true. Insecurities destroy relationships. Appropriate self-love strengthens them.

5. You're happier than you've ever been.

After all, self-love is defined as regard for one's own well-being and happiness. And you found just that. Pure bliss at the end of your fingertips, without another hand to hold. Congrats on finally giving yourself the love you deserve from within.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
