To The Person Who Deserves To Know How Truly Incredible They Are

You're important to me.


When I was in middle school and high school I always thought that connecting with people around me came so easily because we were always surrounded by the same influences. Friends usually ended up doing everything together because we were so close and when relationships became significant we could easily relate.

After high school, we all go separate ways. Then we all really begin to grow. We begin to understand where things went wrong and change ourselves for a better future. Meeting new people is very exciting for me because it's a clean slate. It is so refreshing to have new relationships with such wonderful people. One person studies to become a music teacher and the other an entrepreneur; I can picture our futures; it's very exciting.

When you spend a lot of time with someone, just as we all did in high school, the bond you create forms an everlasting relationship that you will remember for a lifetime. So, I dedicate this article to someone in my life who has, so far, shown me that there is no reason to stay sad, all of the little things we do each day matter.

Dear you,

My heart grows for you like wildfire - fast and with a burning intensity. When I met you, I didn't think I could feel happy for a long time, but you showed me if I just had faith, happiness was not far away. Each day you teach me what it feels like to be grateful to have emotions and to be alive in such a wonderful place. That was something that I neglected to care about a year ago. I learn from you that life is short, but to take every moment by the hand and make it last forever because who knows, it may be your last.

When I am with you I forget about time because the only thing I am paying attention to is you- that is probably why I don't really have a curfew anymore, as long as I go home at some point.

When I am with you, music is our symphony. I feel as though our hearts beat in sync to the music and we become so deeply connected; almost like we are one and the same.

A quote from Justin Bieber, "You smile, I smile" because when you smile it makes the room feel so much warmer and brighter, I feel at home. You are home to me. I never thought you would mean as much to me as you do, but maybe what they say can be true sometimes, it was love at first sight.

I give thanks to the amazing people who raised you because all the events of our pasts led us to each other. This may be such an exaggeration, but I really am not sure what I would be doing without you. You gave me the hope to feel happy again, you support me through whatever, and hold me when I cry. Thanks to you, I am becoming the best version of me possible.

I am glad that we can appreciate and give blessings to each other every day. It takes two people with the same supportive effort to have a healthy relationship. When we miss each other, we know that it will be okay. Then when we are together, our relationship is that much stronger.

Thank you for trusting me as I trust you.

Thank you for sharing your emotions with me, I can see your sincerity in your eyes and feel it when we embrace each other. I know it's hard sometimes but emotions are so essential to life. They shape us and help us grow as individuals.

You are such a dedicated, independent, selfless person; not only to me but your friends and family too.

I was young. It happens to almost everyone. You know, the little crush you get on someone? Well, I had that but it's gone now. What I learned was it is okay to be vulnerable sometimes, but don't let anybody get the best of you. I was once too vulnerable, I didn't think that I could be stronger and have confidence in myself. Once I finally understood what I had been facing, I was able to find release in my worries and feel more myself.

My mind would keep coming back to the moments where I would talk to you when we should have been doing homework but we're talking the whole time; also sharing music, of course. Then, I found such enjoyment in being around you. I swear I could listen to you talk forever. After a while, I realized that I was not just infatuated with you because your name happened to be my favorite name or because of the way you whisper in my ear but because you have loved me with every one of my flaws and have always been true to yourself. I think that is about one of the bravest things someone can do. In a world full of people trying to constantly be someone they are not, here I have found one of the most humble, empathetic human beings and they are a part of my life!

Your soul is beautiful.

Your voice is nostalgic.

Your body is a masterpiece.

Your mind is so mysterious, let me tap inside.

Saying I appreciate you will always be an understatement because I feel euphoric when I am with you.

Not a single worry will cross my mind more than you do because you've shown me with every worry of today, tomorrow is a new day. I am eternally content with how I am growing and how you have helped me be a better, happier, more appreciative human being. Even in sickness and pain, you are there for me as I am for you.

You help me, I help you.

I will be loyal, honest, and true - What would I do without you?

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Both Guys And Girls Have It Hard Finding Love, Stop Complaining

Nothing is easy, so stop throwing your own pity party.


Love is in the air, and so is complaining. Gosh, sometimes being around young adults is exhausting. Basically, all you do is complain about money, or how you are still single/bashing your s/o. When I'm around either my fellow single ladies (or men) the same sort of concept always comes up. "[Insert gender here] have it so easy". Um...sorry bro, that's not the case.

From a girl's point of view, yeah, we may have it easy because we can doll ourselves up with makeup, and flaunt our physical features. But that doesn't mean we have men running toward us left and right. Some guys are jerks and don't know how to treat women. Some guys just want girls for sex, or for their body in general. Do we want that? Yes and no, but when it comes to settling down, that's the tricky part.

From a guy's point of view (now I am clearly not a guy, but this is just an estimate of what I have gathered from then) they have no makeup which already puts girls at an advantage. Girls just wanting to "hit and run", or wanting to sleep around a bit/be free and not committed while you want something more, psycho ex-girlfriends, and her friends. The list could go on, and it gets more complicated as it goes.

As you can probably see by now, guys and girls don't have it easy. The struggles are different, but all are pretty valid in my opinion. Though this article is like a rant, I hope that you know to think twice about saying "who has it better" because in reality, (love related or not) no one has it easy, and the life that others display has a lot more behind it than meets the eye.
