Who Told You That You Were Naked?
July 14th, 2022

There’s a picture somewhere from my childhood of me with 3 friends at a kid’s pool party. Despite how long ago it was, despite having forgotten the names of those girls, I can never shake that image from my mind. At a certain point, I stopped looking at the joy on our faces. All I…

Fashion Reverences the Body
April 5th, 2022

Over the past several decades, fashion has mistakenly become an oversexualized way for the culture to objectify the body. Since the creation of the bikini swimsuit in 1946, clothing designers have cultivated this culture of fashion for women that have defined femininity as something to be worn. Much of today’s trends are sought to expose…

Should We Morph Ourselves Into Their “Dream Girl/Boy”?
March 15th, 2022

Thinking back throughout the course of my life, I’m ashamed to admit how often I pretended to be interested in several things just to get a guy’s attention. In fact, my senior year of High School was the most eminent example of this: It was then that I joined my school’s business club, attended every…

Navigating Attractions
August 26th, 2021

The human person longs to…

As I sat on my grandparents’ couch as a child, I distinctly remember that icky feeling of plastic on my legs. I think we all have a memory of the layer of vinyl that coats a decade-old couch as it slowly perishes beneath it, but if you’d like my opinion on this practice, I’ll condense…

To Love At All is to be Vulnerable
December 10th, 2020

“To love at all is to be vulnerable.” -CS Lewis Why is it so easy to hold onto anxiety, fear and doubt?  For me, it is so much easier to hold onto the anxiety instead of speaking up my needs and asking for someone to hear me out. It is so much easier because vulnerability…

What is Your Relationship with Weakness?
November 26th, 2020

Do you accept yourself? Yes, I’m talking to you. Do you honestly accept yourself as you are? I’ve realized that there are some aspects of who I am right now that feel unlovable. The bubbly, happy, put-together version of me on most days is pretty easy for me to accept. But what about the version…
