1. Be kind to everyone, that you come across. You of all people know that sometimes those who seem the happiest, are actually the saddest and loneliest. Give out small gestures of kindness - a smile, open a door, give out a compliment, tell someone you care. You never know if it’s what they might need.
2. Try not to be so hard on yourself. If you’re honestly trying your best, then there’s no reason to beat yourself up about it.
3. It may seem like you’re drowning under all your responsibilities and what you need to accomplish, but know this all has a time stamp. In a year, things will be different.
4. Don’t let the people who you care about (especially the ones that live far away) slip out of your fingers. Make the effort, even if it’s a simple, occassional text, asking how they are.
5. There are a lot of things you can’t control right now. But, you can control how you handle yourself. Even if it’s hard to find it, try to see the positive. Negativity will get you nowhere.
6. This is how your life was supposed to unfold. Accept it.
“25 things i wish i realized while i was still in highschool”
- That zit on your cheek literally does not matter
- Skipping class one time will not ruin your entire life
- The boy you’re trying so hard to impress will mean nothing to you in a year
- Bring coffee to school and ignore people who make fun of it
- Bring a snack, too. Don’t care if people hear you eating in class.
- Being popular isn’t and will never be something that seriously defines who you are
- Appreciate your teachers
- Doing/not doing drugs doesn’t make you cooler than anyone else.
- Neither does drinking
- Talk to the kid sitting alone; even though it may not change your life it could drastically change theirs
- Participate in school events
- Wear sweatpants everyday
- Or wear a dress everyday
- Wear whatever makes you comfortable
- Nobody will laugh at you if you sit alone at your lunch table for five minutes
- Utilize the library
- Don’t wait 20 minutes to text someone back just to seem cool
- Tell your friends how much you love them
- Cherish your free textbooks… seriously
- Help confused freshmen, be nice to them. Remember how much you would have appreciated it a couple years ago
- Compliment the other girls in the bathroom
- That fight you had with your mom really isn’t that big of a deal
- It’s okay to cry
- Don’t let your desire for a romantic relationship stop you from forming platonic relationships
- Remember that life does go on

Depression doesn’t see race
Or how much money you have
What car you drive, or what you wear
Depression doesn’t care
If you seem to have your life together
Or if you’re down on your luck
Depression doesn’t care if you’re single or taken
At your dream job, or living paycheck to paycheck
Depression can hit anyone
Like the flu
You may not even comprehend
Why sadness has overtaken you
Or why you feel simply nothing at all
Depression is sadly universal
In a world where it’s easy to feel alone
I feel alone.
I’ve been on birth control for about 9 months now.
Since my boyfriend and I have sex fairly regularly, I wanted to be safe
And I wanted to try and curb the acne and cramps that seemed to tag along with my period
In some ways, it has helped
In some ways, it has seemed to cause more problems
I used to be very thin, little curves, and a smooth, flat stomach
Since I’ve been on the birth control, the hormones have affected my body
My breasts are huge, my stomach isn’t as flat, and my hips are wider
I’m now a more hour glass figure, adjusting to curves that make me not fit into everything that I used
My boyfriend seems to love me naked, either way
(and I’m sure the bigger boobs are fun to play with)
And there are days when I love my new curves
But there are days when I feel so fat and unappealing in this new body
I’m thinking of getting a gym membership and try to tone up my stomach
I’ve read though that being on birth control can hinder that sort of weight loss or toning process
Since I don’t think I’m in a place to get off the birth control,
I’m curious if many guys or people actually would look at the curves and body I have and think I look pretty or appealing.
