Emotional Baggage Check

For those times when we all need a shoulder to lean on.

Hey Guys!

Sorry I haven’t posted in forever, but I’ve been going through my own tough times and didn’t feel like I would be much help to anyone. My father passed away, and it’s been really rough. I hope that if you do need a person to rant to, you’ll come here and confide! Sometimes it really helps just to get it out in the open. 

Anonymous asked: Can a nude photo of my face and my boobs destroy my life? I'm a freshman in highschool and I sent a photo to a person I don't know personally online about 6 months ago. I'm scared that the photo might be leaked and destroy my future. That I'll never get into a good college, or get a good job. That I'll let everybody down, that all my parent's hard work would be for nothing.

First off, let me say that it’s not “your parents” hard work. It’s yours. Own your life, and your parents will love you no matter what. Secondly, a picture of your boobs will not ruin your life, I promise! While, yes it might be embarrassing, it will not ruin your entire future. You can still get into college, and have a career. The main thing is, if someone asks about it, be honest and tell them that it was a mistake and you have learned from it. Everyone makes mistakes, it’s what you take from them that is important. 

Anonymous asked: It's been 7 months since I broke up with my ex. After a few months of trying to make it work as friends, since he was my boyfriend and best friend for two years, we stopped talking after an argument. I have moved on to bigger and better things, even moving onto a happy relationship. Some days I can't stop thinking about my ex. And it really gets me down. I'm not entirely sure why, he wasn't even that great. What can I do to let go completely?

I don’t think we ever let go of the ones we love completely. They become part of us, and the memories we share never disappear. That being said, don’t focus on the sad things, focus on the happy things! As Dr. Seuss says, “Don’t cry because it’s over, Smile because it happened”. Don’t be sad that you are no longer with this person, be happy about the times you shared and look back fondly. Don’t feel guilty that you think about him sometimes, just focus on the happy memories and the happy parts of your life now. Good luck to you, we’ve all been there :)
