4 Things To Remember If You're Thinking "The World Is Better Without Me"

There are people that think more of you than you might ever.

I know the feeling all too well - the little voice inside your head telling you that you are no good. I know how it might tell you that you're worthless.

Heck, I've written this and it has more than 15,000 views, which is a little terrifying because there are so many of us out there. And it is somewhat exciting because I never thought any of my words would have much of an audience.

I know that whatever is going on inside your head is not something many people will ever understand. And it is hard sometimes to find that one person that will listen to you when you are not feeling your best. People are so quick to judge, and although I have a wonderful support system, I am still afraid to reach out to people.

So I just want to remind you of a few things:

1. You are far more important than you think.

You are kind, and you are important. You might not always feel important, or important at all - but there are people that think more of you than you might ever.

2. You are not your sadness.

Giphy

Never forget this, even when it overwhelms you. Your sadness never defines you as a person.

3. You are not alone in your thoughts.

Giphy

You are never alone, especially in your thoughts.

4. You are not a nuisance!

If someone makes you feel as if you are, just know you don't need them in your life.

If no one else has checked up on you today - do a check on yourself: Are you hungry? Have you eaten today? If no, that's okay. I hope that you find some kind of snack even if your snack might be some crackers.

Do you have the energy to take a shower? Have you taken care of yourself? Getting out of bed and brushing your teeth is a feat in and of itself!

Sometimes, all we seek is some kindness from another person. People can be so cruel and they refuse to understand. And I want you to know that there is at least one person (me!) rooting for you and your life.

Please know, that you are not useless! You are not worthless! You have worth!

I know that may be hard to remember at times and it might be hard to do much of anything, but if no one has told you any of that today, you just have been.

Life may not always go the way that we want it to but we have a purpose, don't we? We're on this planet at the same time for some reason and it's our responsibility to figure out why!

Besides, if you don't think that you are loved, there are so many animals that you can love on and that will love you right on back. Having a service animal can really be life-changing.

You are not your thoughts and you are not your sadness. You may not feel like the sadness will ever go away, but I promise that one day, you will wake up and not be overwhelmed by feelings of sadness. It might take longer than you would ever wish but I promise, it does get better. It always gets better.

Some days I feel like nothing is ever going to be okay again but I am comforted by the fact my worst day will ever only be 24 hours. We never know what tomorrow will bring, but let us hope that it brings us happiness and a sunshine-filled day.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
