The Moment of Truth

Is there really such thing as perfect timing? Is there someone really destined for you?

No. I don’t think so. I believe that there are only decisions, choices that are meant to be made. There’s not the right time that you have to make them, because if you really want something, you will make it happen.

And so you’ve made your decision, and my decision is counterfeited since I don’t think I can do more about it, rather than just hope you’d have a great future, the one without me as I imagined it to be…

Perhaps I was too optimistic, thinking that there could be more of us than just friends.

But friends don’t do what we do…

You Have To Let Go…

By Anonymous |  Elite Daily ©


I have seen several articles about getting toxic people out of your life, saying goodbye and letting go. When you progress through your twenties, you start to realize who is down for you and who is going to bring you down.

The thing is, even with all of those articles, most people do not ever say what happens after you get rid of the toxic person.

Well, I found out.

Over the past several years, I started to recognize that so many girls have at least one guy in their lives who caused them emotional heartache. One guy with whom they were confused about where they stood.

This one guy who made them question their self worth and who, unknowingly and probably not purposefully, ruined all of their other relationships…

Why It’s So Hard To Be ‘Just Friends’ With The One You Love

By Sheena Sharma |  Elite Daily ©


Three years ago, I was walking down a cherry blossom-lined sidewalk at sunset. Spring had crept up on the city in a way that seemed to indicate that something important was about to happen.

But on that particular day, I was in a rush; I’d signed up for a beginners’ bartending class. I was going to become a bartender. Unemployment stung worse than a wasp’s sting: It made me feel subpar and subhuman, and getting a job was my only goal.

My walk turned into a run. I was determined not to be slowed down by lampposts that creeped onto sidewalks. And then, while waiting anxiously at cross the crosswalk, I saw him.

He stood at just over six feet tall, and he had blond hair and aquamarine-blue eyes. He’d apparently just stepped out of a menswear magazine. That was the moment I should’ve known he was too good to be true.

About Time

“Whatever happens tomorrow, we’ve had today. And if we should bump into each other sometime in the future, well that’s fine too, we’ll be friends.”

You’re going to be okay.

Breathe and remember that you’ve been on this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable, and anxious, and scared, and you’ve survived it.

Breathe, and you know you can survive this one too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass.

Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon they are going to fade, and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, keep living, again and again.

This will pass.

I promise, it will pass…

Growing: From Party Girl To Working Woman

By Anonymous |  Elite Daily ©


You ruled the campus scene, and now it’s time to rule the world.

Graduating from college is a huge leap, and it launches you right into adulthood.

Whether you’ve got a job lined up or not, the reality is you need to clean up your act.

Most women worry about losing the fun and freedom their undergrad years granted them, but there are actually tons of reasons to look forward to putting your wild side to rest (at least on the weekdays).

Here’s why:
