Always Be Willing To Love Again

Love anytime is always worth it.

Always Be Willing To Love Again
Canyon McCarty

There is no doubt that this world can do terrible things. We give our love to friends, family, and partners only to watch it be taken advantage of more often than it is valued. We watch those we love struggle and break down. We watch the ones we love get taken from us way before we are ready. We watch the ones we love walk away from us. Once we experience all of these things, it’s hard not to blame love. If only we hadn’t loved them, we wouldn’t have gotten hurt. If only we had left them alone, we would be so much better off. But that’s not the truth; you wouldn’t be better off.

The people you love will change things in you. They will show you things that will alter your perspective, influence new actions, spark new goals. You will grow beyond the person you could ever be on your own simply by letting another person care about you, and that will allow you to excel in ways you never could have imagined.

We are human, and every human has a unique kind of love. While one person’s love may cause hurt, another may bring happiness you’ve never known. Even when you feel like showing love to others is the very last thing you should be doing, there will be more people that need your specific love. People need your words, your encouragement, your perspective. People need you so they can grow too. You are resilient, and if you continue to love, you will bring power to the powerless.

Love takes many forms, and it will shape itself to be what you need when you need it. No matter what horrors you’ve endured, do not blame love. Without love, life is meaningless. Love is not the villain, love is the hero that picks you up from rock bottom.

So when a friend strays, a family member disappoints, or a partner breaks your heart, do not give up on love. We are not meant to experience just one kind of love and admit defeat, we are meant to love over and over and over again. Keep finding new ways to express love, and I promise you will be a better person for it. Don’t think about what could go wrong. Instead, cling to the faith that things will go right.

No matter what, love anytime is always worth it.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
