6 Reasons Confrontation Is Completely Necessary

6 Reasons Confrontation Is Completely Necessary

Don't just walk away and avoid the problem.

Confrontation is never an easy thing to do. It can be VERY hard. When I say confrontation I don't mean a yelling match. It can just be flat out talking to the person. I know that most people would rather walk away and avoid the problem, but that may not be the best option. When you have an issue with someone, the best solution is to confront them so you can find a way to move on from it. Here are reasons why confronting someone is the best option:

1. You can tell someone what they did and why you don't like it.

A person has a right to know if you have an issue with them. They might not even know that there is any sort of issue until it is talked out. It may not be solved but at least it is out in the open. Clear the air.

2. You can find out the truth.

Many times, confrontation is necessary because something significant has happened that you don't know all the facts about. You may think one thing happened but it could be something totally different. If you confront them you can find out all the facts so you can prevent them in the future and move on from them.

3. You can lose the negativity from your life.

If there is an issue you are more likely to be worried about it or more stressed. This can add up to you having more negative energy in your life and always being sad about things. Also, if everything isn't resolved you can remove that person from your life if you need to.

4. It could be awkward if you don't confront them.

Whether you work with, go to school with them, or just see them around it can be awkward. You might be ignoring each other, which can make the people involved and the people around you uncomfortable.

5. You can decide if you want to continue to be around a person.

Once you know all the facts, you can decide if you want to continue to have that person in your life. Some people aren't meant to be friends or get along and you can figure that out once it is talked about.

6. The longer you are mad at that person, the harder it is to forgive them.

I know from experience that I can hold grudges very easily. The longer that I go without talking about it, the stronger my grudge gets. If you confront them soon after it happens you can try to not be mad at them anymore.

As you know, confrontation is hard but necessary but it can solve issues and problems from happening. If everyone confronts each other, life is a lot easier.

A Letter To My Go-To Aunt

Happiness is having the best aunt in the world.

I know I don't say it enough, so let me start off by saying thank you.

You'll never understand how incredibly blessed I am to have you in my life. You'll also never understand how special you are to me and how much I love you.

I can't thank you enough for countless days and nights at your house venting, and never being too busy when I need you. Thank you for the shopping days and always helping me find the best deals on the cutest clothes. For all the appointments I didn't want to go to by myself. Thank you for making two prom days and a graduation party days I could never forget. Thank you for being overprotective when it comes to the men in my life.

Most importantly, thank you for being my support system throughout the numerous highs and lows my life has brought me. Thank you for being honest even when it isn't what I want to hear. Thank you for always keeping my feet on the ground and keeping me sane when I feel like freaking out. Thank you for always supporting whatever dream I choose to chase that day. Thank you for being a second mom. Thank you for bringing me into your family and treating me like one of your own, for making me feel special because you do not have an obligation to spend time with me.

You've been my hero and role model from the time you came into my life. You don't know how to say no when family comes to you for help. You're understanding, kind, fun, full of life and you have the biggest heart. However, you're honest and strong and sometimes a little intimidating. No matter what will always have a special place in my heart.

There is no possible way to ever thank you for every thing you have done for me and will continue to do for me. Thank you for being you.

The Lazy Girl's Guide To The Gym

Also, everything else you should know if you're a slightly out-of-shape girl (like me).


With my freshman year coming to an end, I realized a lot of things. I made new friends, I found new hobbies, and I learned a lot of lessons. One of them being that the "Freshman 15" is very real and very scary.

While my friends and family have attempted multiple times to convince me that I'm just being dramatic (I am), I still want to make a change in my lifestyle or I will, in all seriousness, be on track to the "Sophomore 20".

Here is a list of my best gym and healthy lifestyle tips that I am slowly attempting to live by this summer in order to resurrect Emily's 18-year-old body and health.

1. Increase water intake.

2. Find a gym buddy.

3. Start off with cardio.

4. Don't stop on your cardio until you're dripping in sweat.

5. Chug a LOT of water an hour before the gym.

Do not do it right before, or you will be in pain.

6. Eat light beforehand but just enough to hold you over. 

7. Plan out what your routine will be BEFORE you get there.

My routine: Elliptical for a mile, Stairmaster for 10 minutes, ab HIIT workout for 10 minutes, 5 more minutes on Stairmaster.

8. Buy healthy foods while you're feeling motivated.

9. Find a gym that isn't too far from your house. 

10. Don't get mad at yourself if you don't see results in a day.

I know this is a hard one.

11. Try fitness classes.
