Must Every Day Be So Hard?!
“Maybe the truth was, it shouldn’t be so easy to be amazing. Then everything would be. It’s the things you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth. When something’s difficult to come by, you’ll do that much more to make sure it’s even harder–if not impossible–to lose.” ―Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride
I love this song, but I hate the video. It visually ruins the images in my head that the song produces, though I do like the spoken parts.
It’s a terrible cliche that all women are attracted to “bad boys”. Every time I think about that, I pray that women will start raising better men. Some of the nicest guys in the world don’t know how to treat women as we deserve to be treated. I have experienced abuse on many levels, so when anyone I love enters into an unhealthy relationship, I cannot keep my mouth shut. I can only support someone for so long before I have to step back or walk away completely, and I do not condone abuse of any kind in any relationship. If a relationship makes you sick and makes you cry every single day, get out. There is help to be found, but you need to have the stength and the courage to leave before it has the potential to become dangerous.
