1 Major Lesson I’ve Learned This Year…

One major lesson I learned this year is that you can’t keep giving yourself to someone who isn’t going to give you their whole self to you. What I am I mean by that is if you were showing someone the kind of effort that you wish to be shown, you’re only going to get hurt in the end. Not everyone is going to treat you how you want to be treated; not everyone is going to be there for you 24/7 like how you want them or expect them to, and not everyone is going to be your best friend or your soulmate.

3 Ways To Move On From An Ex… 

1. Cut off contact.

Do this at least for a little while. A friendship may eventually be possible, but being friends can’t happen in a genuine way until you have healed through most if not all of the pain, which takes time. Being your own best friend is what is most important during a difficult break-up and that means not putting yourself in situations that don’t lead to feeling good. When you are hurting, you are vulnerable. Protecting yourself with healthy boundaries is an essential part of good self-care. Politely let your ex know you need your space and would prefer not to be in contact for the time being. (Don’t ghost them.)

2. 4. Know it is OK to still like/love them.

Love is never wrong. When someone comes into your life who allows you the opportunity to experience love, that is always a true gift. Part of maturity, however, is recognizing that love by itself isn’t always enough to make a relationship work. But moving on from a relationship that isn’t working isn’t always about ending the love you feel. Sometimes the only way to let go is to love someone enough to want the best for him or her even if that means not being together.

3. Make peace with the past.

When someone treats you poorly or does something hurtful, it is a natural and healthy response to feel some anger. Anger helps you be aware of situations that are not in your best interest and can facilitate the separation process from an unhealthy relationship. But when we hold on to anger and resentment from past experiences we take them with us into the future. Nothing hurts more than when someone you love does something that causes you to reevaluate who you believed them to be. When someone betrays the trust you gave, it is painful. But letting what someone else did limit your ability to move forward means they still exert control over your life. Forgiveness isn’t about letting someone else off the hook for his or her bad behavior; it is about your emotional freedom.

My College Experience (so far)

Today’s blog post will be about the things I like about college as well as my experience so far!

I’ve been attending college for a few years now. I started out going on school campus for a while then started doing everything online. 

College is different that high school in many ways. In college you can pretty much do as you please (no dress code, come and go as you when you want (most of the time). Another plus is you go by your own schedule, so whatever works for you! Just pick the classes you wanna take and the times, then go from there! You can also drop a class if you find that it is too hard. College (in my opinion) is easier than high school. You’re given alot of time per assignment especially if you’re doing it online. It’s also pretty easy to make friends as well. 

My experience has been pretty great so far! My first time on campus I made a few friends right away as well passing my first class with either an A or B I can’t remember lol. Now I am doing online, which is easy/hard. For example we are pretty much on our own. The teacher explains each assignment briefly but we as students need to know how to do it based on little info. We are typically given a week per assignment (each one due on Sunday) which is very helpful for those who are busy during the week. Now I’m going to list the bad sides to college.

1. It is expensive for those who don’t get financial aid.

2. Classes fill up quickly! 

3. Classes can be confusing at times when not given clear instructions.

4. It does take awhile to finish (get your degree) if you take only 1-3 classes at a time.

Those are just 4 things I thought of randomly but I’m sure other people who attend college have different things that they dont like as well.

Hope you all enjoyed today’s post!!!
