Thank goodness for cell phones
I know that God has given me my particular set of gifts for a reason, but I often can’t seem to comprehend why.
I may not be the girl that goes to every frat party, school sporting event, or ladies night at the bar. However, I am the girl who has genuinely authentic friends who I have fun with.
You'd be surprised how lonely you can feel when you're surrounded by the people who know you the best. This is how I feel right now. I've always enjoyed being on my own, but I am painfully aware of the consequences of being a non-confrontational introvert in college. Instead of starting a fight and getting into drama, I have no problem with simply walking away from it all. It's cleaner that way... or so I thought.
Every morning I wake up before my alarm and my thoughts start to flood my brain before I've even stepped out of bed. I don't wake up early on purpose-- it's just this automatic freak out that I have as soon as the first ray of sunlight creeps in through my window. Instantly, I jolt awake and my mind starts to race.
As an athlete, you train relentlessly 365 days of the year for that moment when it all pays off. As an athlete, your goals consume your every waking thought. You are obsessed with your dreams. So, you can imagine that when something unexpected takes you out of the game, your world crumbles.

It can be challenging to let go of the bitterness that grips ahold of your mind at times, but the Bible tells us to "Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you" (Ephesians 4:31-32).
Perfection is seen as the ultimate goal, and that's where we, as humans, fall short. It's a never-ending cycle. No one is ever going to be perfect, but we love the chase. I, like so many others, am obsessed with chasing perfection. I'm not stupid, though, and I know that perfection is unattainable, but that's why I start faking.
