How many times have you found yourself saying or thinking, "I really wanna move out," that is, move out from your parents?
I can't even count the times. While in college, I lived away most of it and dreaded moving back in. Now, a graduate without money to move, here I am stuck again.
Being 22, I feel restricted and disrespected half the time I am home. I try and stay other places as often as I can, but it's not the easiest.
So if you're stuck at home with the family and are going crazy, here are 4 things to get you through home living.
1. Stay quiet
2. Lock enforcement
3. Stock up
4. Drown out
I use this advice 100% and moving day cannot come soon enough (:
Today is gonna be short, sweet and to the point.
Don't leave the one you love for the one you like. It's a huge mistake and you'll never be fully satisfied.
It may seem like the best decision, but think about it. Your love will not just take you back just like that.
The new sexy one in your life might be fun, but not worth it.
If you're that unsure of your current relationship, take time to think instead of f*ck some random.
Solid advice. Enjoy your day/night!
Last night, my boyfriend decided to document through photos a tattoo his friend was giving him. Long story short, his thigh is full of tattoos and this new one happens to reach onto his a**. This got me to thinking, what if I were to do the exact thing he did?
The answer is, I would get a lot of shit for it. I'd get called a slut for even a peak of my booty. It's not appropriate to slightly show mine, when with men, it's fine. Men moon people for the enjoyment, if a woman were to go mooning, would that be ok?
All of this talk leads to lack of equality in genders when it comes to showing some skin.
Not only are their equality campaigns still reigning, but there are now campaigns to go braless and free nipples. I am not against these campaigns. A guys nipples can show through a shirt, but what about women?
As I am for this, I also am for restrictions. There is a time and place for this and it shouldn't be hard to figure out. Girls should not run around high school or even college free boobin' in a tight shirt. You can probably guess that would distract some of the guys (or girls.) Another place not fit, the workplace; not professional, obvious reasons.
My point is, if a woman doesn't want to wear a bra, if she wants to show a little skin, that should be fine, as it is for men. Should girls run around with no shirts, NO. That's just asking for trouble and all mens eyes on them. A girl shouldn't be afraid to go braless though if she pleases while out doing her thing.
Being braless is a wonderful feeling. For me, it's hard to wear some of my outfits without a bra because I feel it looks silly. With others, I can get away with not wearing a bra and letting them breathe! As bras are constraining, they do really help pull off some outfits and make them look perfect.
I may sound contradicting, but for me it's really a love hate relationship with bras. Women shouldn't be constantly stared at for losing the bra. Women should be able to have the same freedom in fashion as men do.
For equality to fully happen, we have to let go of gender roles and let some more things slide for women. Not every girl is a slut for wearing that crop top without a bra. Equality for all!
The truth is, you'll never be number one in anything. There will always be someone who is better than you. The prettier one, the more athletic one, the funnier one, the one with the better body, the one with the better life, the better than you at anything one.
Because this is inevitable in life, you have to learn to live with it. There is no way to change it. You have to change your mind set to realize, becoming them is not always achievable.
With saying that, you are special in your own way. You have a special amount of qualities that certain people will find amazing in you and love you just the way you are. Every person is unique. Everyone is the best at being themselves.
Next time you're in the situation where you aren't thinking very highly of yourself, think of everything that makes you awesome.
I am beautiful in my own way.
I have a great personality.
I am the best at being me.
Before you go to put someone else down, think of how they will feel after that. You are no better than anyone else nor they you.
I was recently having a conversation with a friend about love. We discussed her love life, past and present, and how she couldn't believe that she thought she was in love before. The current love she has for her new relationship has surpassed her "old love."
I totally understand how she feels. Putting aside those guys I dated for a few weeks or months in high school where "I love you" was just said for the hell of it, how often have I truly loved?
Do you only have one true love and never actually loved the others? Or can you love multiple times in life, each love being a different kind of love?
Not thinking too much into it, of course I have always cared for my previous boyfriends, but love? I think including my current relationship, I have truly fallen in love twice in life. Did I lie when I said I loved others? No, their love was just more of a friendship type of love.
Comparing though, every love is different. You can believe you are in that type of forever love with someone when it doesn't end happily ever after. Love is a complicated thing, it can be so hard to analyze it for what it really is.
For me to compare love, I can now see a difference between them. I am not a love expert by any means, but these are the differences I found between old love and true love.
As I may be wrong in some instances, these are reasons I found in my life as to how I can tell the difference. Every love is different, and maybe you loved once and that was enough to tell. Love is different for everyone and everyone loves differently. You just have to figure out for yourself what true love really is.
