I Started Going To Therapy And It Showed Me That I Do Deserve The Best

I had never gone to therapy before this year. I had always thought that I could figure out my own problems, and didn't really need help. Little did I know that this isn't just what therapy is for.

Once I had gone through two really toxic relationships, I realized maybe I can't handle everything on my own. I had problems with knowing what is true and what is not about myself and the things around me. I felt like I had completely lost who I was and that anything and everything was wrong with me. This was not the case at all, and everybody around me knew that what I had gone through was not my fault, and sometimes we fall into situations that are really toxic, and bad for our well-being. But I had trouble believing this on my own.

Once I met with my therapist, I had told her everything about me, and what I was there for. Telling her about my friendships and past relationships really helped her get a better idea of who I was as a person.

She helped me realize that there were things that I could do within myself, to stop falling into these types of situations and that I deserve to be treated a lot better than what I had been putting up with.

I realized that a lot of people had gone through what I had, and could relate to me. It made me feel less alone and helped me realize that there isn't anything wrong with me. But it also helped me self-evaluate and explore myself. Going to therapy helped me realize that it is good to focus on yourself and to get your mind right. Working on your mental health is just as taxing as working out in my personal opinion. It takes active work and active commitment. But in the end, it is worth it. Being able to realize who I am, and my worth has been something I am proud of. I feel whole again, and not so out of touch with myself.

We all have our own issues and quirks, but it's about trying to be the best you possible.

It isn't about being a good person or a bad one. It is just about becoming 100% you, and I think that is something that is hard to do without some help. I believe that everybody should do their own mental exploration and become the best person that they possibly can.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.
