"You broke up with your ex for a reason. The nostalgia your probably feeling to get back with her is likely false or if you actually did have a lot of stuff worth smiling about, your fickle mind is conveniently ignoring all of the stuff that made you two end this thing in the first place. I know that we all like to believe that we are the miraculous exception to the rules about love and dating, but the truth is, you’re probably just going to break up again. I’m not saying that there were no qualities in your ex that you loved but let’s not pretend like a huge part of the appeal is familiarity. But don’t get yourself sucked into the idea that just because something is well-known means that it’s inherently better than other options (no I’m not saying that I’m the better option). After all, the butterflies of meeting someone new are pretty awesome too. Speaking personally, having been in one of those “let’s break up to make up several times” relationships, I can safely say that looking back on that crap is nothing short of humiliating. Save yourself while you can. You, along with your ex, are probably largely the same person, and all too ready to fall back into the emotional quicksand that was your previous relationship. The same arguments, the same personal flaws, the same fundamental incompatibility - they’re all likely waiting for the the two of you like spring-loaded bear traps, ready to drag you back into the exact same breakup you already went through. While it may seem daunting, to have to find someone with whom to start all over again and possibly end up crashing and burning like before, it also holds so much hope. There are uncharted paths of people with whom you don’t necessarily fight over everything, with whom things just click, with whom you can just be yourself and possibly not have to deal with a breakup of any kind. And even if you don’t meet the person of your dreams, at least you tried. You tried, and it didn’t involve sulking back to your ex for what you already know doesn’t work. YOU deserve better. You will find someone better. Have faith and be happy."

The cost of education is rising

yatir:

And almost every job now requires a degree of some sort. Put two and two together, they are forcing people to go to school and pay tons of money, take out loans with crazy interest rates, just so they can get a job, and survive…and I say survive because, just because you have a degree that you paid all this money for, it doesn’t guarantee you a good paying job. The US education system is a business, and it’s making bank.

I really need to get my life on track.. Too bad there’s no doctors note for heartbreak 😭

Don’t think because someone is saved & single that y’all would be equally yoked

I hate ungrateful behavior
