Why I Hate “Hot Girl Summer”

A new trend has taken the internet by storm. I’d rather deep clean my house than hear it again. Here’s why I hate “Hot Girl Summer.”

You Are Worthy of Love … Even If You Feel Broken Beyond Repair

 I’ll get this out of the way now.  I’m not a perfect person. I may like to think I am because being “perfect” gives me worth. Being “perfect” means I am not as far gone as I think I am. Being “perfect” gives me a buffer between my flaws and what others perceive me as.  …
