Why a Best Friend is a Best Friend

My best friend has been by side for almost 5 years now- And when I say best friend I mean my go-to, personal therapist and comedian, and literal other half. I can truthfully say that I would not be me without her. Friendship is such a gift; one that we should remind ourselves of daily. I am crazy thankful to have been given a best friend who always, without fail, shows unconditional love- the kind a best friend should show.

You know a best friend from others because they...

Tell you how it is 

"maybe he's just busy," "maybe they forgot and have something going on," "maybe he didn't mean it"

no no no... your best friend will be there to call out the "no's"

they will remind you of what you deserve and call you out when you're wrong, and they won't be afraid to do it. My best friend isn't scared to tell me when I am being dramatic or reading too much into a situation- she brings me back into reality and helps me see truth

Listen to your rants- and guide you through them

A blessing to me has been knowing that no matter how big or small a problem is- I can call my best friend and know that she will talk me through it. Most of all though, I am thankful to that she will just listen. In the past 5 years there has been a heck of a whole lot that has gone down in our lives and we have gotten each other through it rant by rant. Plus it always help knowing they have your back and will support you no matter what:)

You can share EVERYTHING

I truly think my best friend knows me better than I know myself. She knows everything there is to know about me and could tell ya anything there is to tell- the good, the bad, the embarrassing, and the ugly

You are a part of the family 

I would consider my best friends family my second family- the people who I know have my back and support me just as my own family does

Jordan is my best friend and the most serving, kind-hearted, compassionate, giving, and funniest person I know. I love her like a sister and am blessed beyond measure by her friendship.

Here's to having a best friend that makes you- well, you!!

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.

As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.
