Family Matters

Many teenagers today are basically taught to hate their parents and family. Who wants to have controlling parents? Why should we listen to them? These questions go through every single teenagers head. Me too. Growing up I constantly thought I knew more than my parents. Why would they try to ruin all of my fun, when I'm just trying out new things?

Now I am 19 and living on my own. I rarely get to see my family, and sometimes I do get lonely. Lately my entire attitude about family and parents have changed. I'm actually realizing that my parents did not best all of these years. Yes, it may have been a downer not being able to do specific things growing up, but now that I'm an adult and making my own decisions I just want to have my parents straight up tell me what I have to do. Does that every happen? No. I have to make my own decisions.

As I get older, I've come to respect my parents and their opinions. And I also have realized that they are smarter than me and do understand what I am going through. All parents were our age once. The situations may have been different, but they were all once teenagers. So next time you are ready to fight or argue with your parents, just sit back and think.

This past week my grandpa passed away, and it really opened up my eyes and made me realize that our lives here on earth are so short. We never know when God may call us home. I want to let everyone in my life know how much I appreciate them. Life is so short, so why waste time hating people and pushing people away. Forget about the haters and focus on those that you love and care about. There is no telling when they will not be in your life anymore. Cherish every moment with your loved ones.

Where Are You Running To?

When problems arise in our life, it is so easy for us to run away from the problem and take the easiest path possible. As humans we always look for the easiest way out of situations. When problems come up I always tend to figure out the easiest and fastest way to get out of that predicament. I don't usually step back and think what is the right way to face the situation. I always go for the less embarrassing and awkward solution.

Sometimes God will allow us to face problems to see how we will react to them. Will we run away from them? I believe that so many times God just wants us to run to Him when hard problems arise. He never wants to see us suffer, but he wants us to know that we can run to Him 24/7 and He will help us!

Size Doesn't Define Us

During our teens, there is such a huge deal about our weight and size. Society basically makes you feel that unless you are a specific size or weigh a certain amount your not beautiful. They constantly tell us that no guy will ever like us if we don't have the most perfect body. It makes me so sad when i see girls fall prey to the lies that society tells them. As cliche as it may sound that size doesn't matter, size really doesn't. I've talked to guys about this before. Every guy is different. Not all guys want the size 0 girls. They are just like girls. Not all girls want a guy who has a specific type of body. Every single guy is different. And the right guy doesn't care about your body. They care about your personality and who you are as a person.

Your size and weight does not define who you are. How you treat people and talk to people is what defines you. I know it is difficult to remember this and believe this. Trust me, I have to remind myself everyday that I'm perfect just the way I am. But you will soon realize that once you are happy with how you are it doesn't even matter what other people think. Once you are happy with yourself, you will not only feel better, but others will be able to see the confidence that you have.

A Sneak Peak into My Life

So I decided to start a post series where I just talk about what has been going on in my life. I just want to keep you guys updated on all the exciting things that are happening.

Lately I've been having a very rough couple weeks. I've been working hard with school and work, and basically have been worn down. Of course I live up north where there is still snow, which is always depressing.
I always make it a goal to always be happy and have a smile on my face. Everyone thinks I'm 100% okay, even though I'm not. Whenever I leave my house I put a giant smile on my face and tell myself throughout the day that I am fine, when really I'm not. Not a single person even knows what I am struggling with because honestly I don't even know. Some days I just want someone to care enough about me to realize that I'm not okay. I hate to burden people with my problems, so many times I just tell everyone I'm doing great.
I want to just move somewhere were no one knows me so I can basically start over. No past mistakes can be held against, and I can just be me. People will either love me for me or hate me. No one will judge me for who I was friends with or what I have done.

Overcoming Obstacles

Whats your passion in life?

I've been asking myself this for the past few weeks. Honestly I have no idea. I have things that I enjoy doing, but nothing I am passionate about. I've been praying and searching for my purpose in life. I see so many people doing things that they absolutely love, and then theres me.... I have no idea what I am going to school for, let alone what I even enjoy doing.

Whenever I find something I'm passionate about there always seems to be so many obstacles for me to overcome to finally accomplish something. That can be very depressing and discouraging.

Today I had you can say almost a revelation. I've realized that if I want to accomplish something I'm passionate about, I can't give up when the first obstacle comes. In order for me to accomplish anything amazing in life I am going to have to work hard at it.

Humbling Yourself

One thing I've struggled with lately is humbling myself. I currently live on my own and have to take care of myself completely. I have to pay all my bills and basically care for myself. Having done this for nearly a year it is very hard to ask for help. Recently I've realize that it is not wrong or bad to ask for help when you need it. I am just human and can't accomplish everything and be perfect at everything. I'm going to need help once in awhile. The worst thing that can happen when you ask for help is the person you ask to say no. Nothing really changes. So yes, this post may seem stupid to some, but I wanted to share with some personal struggles that I've been going through.

I am Me

In our teen years and even young adult age we are constantly trying to figure out who we are and what is our place in the world. Honestly I am still trying to decide who I want to be. As we grow up our friend group changes and our whole personality changes sometimes. Either we change so we can be cool or we change because we have a goal of the type of person that we want. 

One hard thing I've realize is hard for teen girls is when it comes to guys. Like c'mon who does not want to have a good looking boyfriend who is sweet and absolutely perfect? One thing I've caught myself doing, without even realizing it was changing who I was based on how a guy wanted me to act.

As girls we want to be accepted and appreciated by guys, am I right? I do not think that is wrong that is how we were made, but wanting to be accepted by guys can be dangerous. You do not want to ever change yourself and give up who you are for a guy. The right guy will love you for who you are. Sadly it took me completely changing to figure that out. 

So when you look for your perfect guy make sure he loves you for who you are. He should not want to change anything about you. You should be able to be your self 100% around him. Having to change how you act or even your personality because you want to make it happy is giving up yourself. You should not have to give up yourself to be with someone who makes you happy.
