I know I'm not the only one who has suffered the pain from a generation that has fallen victim to isolation and disconnection, disregards the meaning of responsibility and commitment, lacks empathy and effective communication skills, and has learned to speak with their thumbs, not their voice. But we need to be stronger than that. We cannot practice the mistreatment we've endured ourselves on other people just because that has become "the thing" to do.
Our thoughts, the things we say, and the things we hear around us are all forms of nutrition. The terms we use turn into behaviors that slowly become normalized -when it's not normal at all. Sometimes it gets so deeply ingrained in us, we don't realize when those overheard phrases become beliefs, and soon enough, they're the culprits to our shame, our fear, and our pain.
Your feelings are absolutely valid, so feel them for what they are. But know how you react to your feelings is going to make all the difference.
New Year's Resolutions seem to hold a negative connotation every year, but why? We should be using them to our advantage to become better versions of ourselves. Here's my best advice on how to do it.
Yeah, our dating culture is very flawed. But I'm not going to let that scare me away or make me bitter. I'm not done having my fun just yet.
Glorifying stress, no-sleep, and asocial lifestyles is not impressing anyone. We need to stop demonizing the act of taking care of OURSELVES, and start prioritizing self-care.
Dating "rules" are overrated. I'm getting rid of the stressors of being 21 and learning to live the prime time of my life to its absolute FULLEST. #BeBrave
