Do not allow him to consume you. If he does not call, go to sleep. If he does not message, put your phone away and have a fantastic day anyway. If he acts distant when you are with him and refuses to tell you what is wrong, don’t wait for him, go home and do something you love. If he tries to insinuate you do not need your friends now that you have him, spend more time with your friends. If he tries to teach you a lesson through the silent treatment, ignore him completely.

If he plays with your feelings constantly, walk away from him. If he acts like your body is his entitlement when you are not ready, walk away from him. If he says terrible, unforgivable things and threatens to leave you after every argument, walk away from him. If he forbids you from doing anything you love, walk away from him. If he claims ownership of your accomplishments, walk away from him. If he demeans you or disrespects your being a girl and refuses to stop when you tell him it hurts, walk away from him.

I cannot stress this enough, you live for yourself first. He is a secondary character in the story of your life. Do not allow him to turn you into a secondary character in your own book.

You think you can’t enjoy classic literature.

Overheard a girl say she hated her literature class. She thinks that the stories are outdated and nobody can relate to them anymore.

Imma ‘bout to drop knowledge in here.

You’ve been enjoying classic literature without even knowing it!

Fashions differ, societies vary, and our technology has advanced, but humans are essentially the same when it comes to stories. We enjoy a good love story. We understand pain and loss. We laugh at blunders. We root for the hero. We wish for a happy ending. Don’t disregard something just because it is “old.”

I can’t even be upset that you don’t care about me too because you were never mine to care about to begin with…

Do you remember when we danced in the kitchen waiting for the water to boil? You wanted green tea. I wanted you.
They walked side by side under the streetlights, talking and laughing. His hand kept grazing hers with every step they took until he finally mustered up the courage to grab it. He shot her a sly smile and she scolded herself when she felt her heart rate increase.
“If you could go anywhere, where would it be?” He asked, curiosity lacing his voice.
She thought about it before quietly answering, “Everywhere.”
He stopped walking then, and mulled over her response in his head. When he turned to face her, his eyes held a wild spark .
“Someday, I’ll drag you with me to see the world. Promise to come with me?” His face held a seriousness that was seldom there.
“I promise.”
A wide grin split his handsome features and he pulled her into his chest. She laughed freely. At that moment, their wanderlust souls were filled with hope.
