Just any other college student trying to figure out life. This is my personal blog, so I have mostly personal posts but I will also reblog things that I feel something about. I hope to put some of my writing on here, and of course my opinions on everything ever. haha. <3
there is nothing romantic about
- not knowing you’re beautiful
- loving someone until they learn to love themselves
please stop romanticizing low self esteem.
it’s one thing to love a person who happens to have low self esteem
it’s another thing to frame low self esteem as a desirable trait.
OK, no. Clearly the OP has never actually listened to either of these songs. I’m not really gonna get into WMYB because I’m less bothered by it. I adore 1D because they’re adorable and yes, the lyrics are a little silly but the message is clear: What makes the girl they’re singing to beautiful is no that she feels bad for herself or has low self esteem, it’s that she’s humble.
NOW.. I will get a little more into Let Me Love You. Ne-Yo.. he’s just incredible. His lyrics and talent are out of this world. That song has NOTHING to do with loving a girl because she has low self esteem. Let me just let the man himself tell it:
(x) “This song is about learning to love yourself.” That’s it, straight from the Gentleman himself.
Okay, so you want to write things. Many things. Beautiful things! Things that seem so awesome in your head! But you have just one tiny, itty-bitty problem:
Everything you write is total, complete shit. It’s so shit you want to print it out just so you can set it on fire so nobody else will ever see it. Maybe someone told you your writing was shit. Maybe you have a bad writing habit or something that plagues you constantly (mine is typos. Horrible, horrible typos). Maybe your idea is so awesome that you’re afraid you’ll ruin it. Well, I have a awesome, wonderful news just for you. One of those secrets that people forget to share. Here it goes:
Writing crap is good for you.
You don’t believe me. Crap is crap! Writing isn’t worth it if all you’re going to write is crap, right? Wrong. Fucking wrong. Fuck that shit so hard. Fuck it until it burns. Writing crap is good for you. Crap is the fertilizer in which your ideas grow. Your shitty first draft will become a beautiful flower, even if it takes many washings to get the stink off. What is crap now can be remade into not crap later, even if that later is much, much later.
Or maybe your crap isn’t worth rewriting. Maybe it’s just best to bury it quietly, with a fond farewell or a bottle of whiskey. You know what? It still did you good to write it. Crap today will improve your writing in the future. It will! You’ll learn where your strengths are. You’ll improve your weaknesses. You’ll reuse ideas you buried, or retweak them in ways you like.
Don’t be afraid to write crap. Don’t feel bad if you think you are writing crap. Everyone writes crap. Your favorite book had a shitty first draft. Your favorite authors had bad writing days. The journalist you admire had her stories rejected. The blogger you follow left his shitty posts on the drawing board.
Everyone writes crap. Don’t let it stop you from writing at all.

Felt a craving for candy. Didn’t have any candy.
Made up a batch of brownie mix instead and continue to eat it raw.
Please everyone send your prayers to Gen’s younger sister who’s in a critical condition. Gen needs your kind words to get through this. I don’t care if you hate her, please send her some love and positivity, don’t make this world crueler than it already is. Have respect for Jared’s family. Yes they are now a part of his family as well, accept it and adapt. I’m really shaken by all of this news, I’ve been dreading finding out who it was, but I sincerely hope Sarah makes it through this okay. Hope Gen can be strong while taking all of this in, I know she wouldn’t be able to handle it on her own without Jared being there for her. They need to be spending as much time with Sarah as they possibly can. Please do your best to send love to Gen, this is the time she needs it most.
