Katelin. 21. My daughter is the best thing to ever happen to me. I'm on a journey of loving myself, positivity, and awesomeness. If you follow me, that's awesome. Talk to me!

explaining to someone yesterday who pines after guys all the time, and always complains about them, is on dating websites and just who has just the intentions to be with someone (haha surprise surprise not me) I’ll post what she said 

"I miss laying with a man, listening to his heart beat. Nothing sexual. Just cuddling. Just listening to the silence, the breathing and the heart beats. I miss it a lot more than I thought I would."

Me-I mean… you post a lot about missing a man. A man won’t and doesn’t validate who you are. I’m learning that, I’m learning to love being alone. When you aren’t focused on a guy and treat yourself with nothing but love, the right one will come along. Why not focus on you and getting yourself right? School, job, car, etc. I just, I hate seeing you pining after a guy. Trust me, I know the feeling, but it’s a lot better to be single and awesome than in a relationship and being treated like crap, not being valued, being cheated on, etc. Idk, I guess what I’m saying is just, you don’t need a guy. Like I said, I’m learning to do it myself. Aubree’s dad really did a number on me, but I’d rather be alone than go through all his lies, manipulation, cheating, and stuff.

Her- ”I’m doing fine without a man. I just miss the cuddling with someone. A person. You enjoy cuddling with your daughter. It’s the same thing. And I’m dating. Not pining. It's very different. The dating scene isn't easy and dealing with men is difficult because they act different than us. I'm not being cheated on or anything like that. If I'm being treated badly, I'm not gonna be with that person. Hell no. But trying to find the man that will treat me the way I deserve and loves me is gonna take time. I'm not going on date after date, talking to a ton of guys. I'm fine by myself. But it'd be nice to be with someone. But I have options and I am gonna see what they are. I post stuff but I don't put the specifics.”

Me- Idk, guess I’m not in that mind set. :/

Her- I understand everything you said and agree with you. I’m just in the middle of some stuff with guys and there’s dating issues with time and distance and all that stuff. It’s not cut and dry, ya know? But if it all ends, I am gonna focus on myself like I am but if a good guy asks me out, I might go out. Lol.


I , again, am guilty of this in the past and even now from time to time. But like, I’m getting my shit together. I’d rather have something to call my own and be on my feet going into another relationship ever again if it happens. Being single is effing amazing and I’m glad I can have my queen bed all to myself and I don’t have to share it with anyone. I’m learning myself and who I am and what I like and don’t like. I’m growing stronger in my faith , my relationship with God is getting stronger. I don’t know, I guess to each their own. 




This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.


  • do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
  • go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
  • if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
  • look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
  • the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
  • works every time

"sad little bug" is the cutest and most accurate term ive heard used to describe a child because sometimes bugs are kinda super cute sometimes bugs are really fucking annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING

:( and she is trying to keep the ones I really want. Armadillo, Carrol, and some CBs. 


One day right?

I have to read 9 chapters in the next… day. LORD HELP ME STAY FOCUSED. I NEED TO PASS THAT TEST
