I ditched My Former Situation-ship and here's Why You Should As well

It is not only common to hear how many people have been friendzoned, but it is even sadder that so many have stayed waiting for such a stagnant thing to become more.

Situationships are becoming more common nowadays, especially among young adults. For those who don't know what that is, basically is having a one-sided treatment similar to that of an amorous relationship but without the title.

I've been in a situation-ship before when I was in high school and let me tell you it was my best and worst teacher. Seeing other people where I was at one point, makes me want to shake them (okay not literally) but knock some sense into them.

If you're currently in a situation-ship, let me tell you that it is time to let go. Whether you have known them forever or not, anyone who does not value you as a person doesn't care for your feelings or time.

Clearly, you are wasting your time and energy with someone who is not reciprocating the same feelings back.

The one who is meant to be with you will not make you question where you stand. They will let you know how much they adore you and how much you mean to them.

They will show you off to the world, kiss you like they mean it, and will be straightforward.

The worst thing I had to learn when I was infatuated with someone was that they told me they didn't know what they wanted yet at the same time demonstrated affection.

And I really did take that saying "actions speak louder than words" too literally. Can you blame me?

Whoever wants to be with you will make every effort to be with you no matter what. The idea of somebody leaving you wanting more and not making it official can really break you emotionally.

But I tell you, it's time to ditch your situation-ship. Honestly, sometimes there are individuals out there who can't stand the idea of being with someone who is just more than them.

I'm not saying there are people who are better than others, but sometimes we are the ones who have our sh*t together while they don't and to them, that is intimidating.

Or maybe we don't want to give away certain things that come with relationships. Um, like sex.

The best things come when we least expect them. Learn to realize what it is that you deserve because obviously, your emotions aren't toys for some random person to be playing with them.

You are worthy of someone who sets your heart on fire, not someone who puts out your flame. Don't let anyone make you believe that love isn't a good feeling, it is and more.

There are billions of people out there, don't let one ruin your chance of finding your true love.

Part of loving yourself is letting go of those who use you for their benefit.

It's National Coming Out Day, So I'm Doing Just That

"I'm coming out. I want the world to know." -Diana Ross

Odyssey has given me the ability to express myself and open up about viewpoints that I rarely discuss. Writing about controversial topics is always scary because you're putting yourself in a vulnerable position by opening up to the world.

This article is possibly the most vulnerable I will ever get during my time with Odyssey.

This article is not a viewpoint, it is a coming out.

My senior year of high school I was faced with a very tough question: Who am I?

I was confused about everything in the world, myself included. It took time, but I figured it out. It's taken another four and a half years to talk about it.

So here it is: I'm bisexual.

So often do we see "straight" as the default for sexuality. This "default" made it even harder to admit my own sexuality to myself.

I spent months trying to figure out who I was and still have days where I question myself. I've spent so long keeping a large part of myself a secret that I've started to doubt myself and I no longer want to do that.

I want to be proud of who I am.

I want to stand up for other people and speak out about issues that affect me and others like me and not be afraid. I want to be a part of my community and not be afraid of being questioned.

I'm no longer afraid to be who I am.

For the past four years, I have watched this day come and go, each year saying, "This is the year," and chickening out last second. I'm not going to chicken out any longer. This is the year I tell everyone who I am.

I'm terrified of admitting this to the world, but I hope that it will only free me.

Bisexuality comes with its own myths and question for other people, though, and I want to address some things before I leave everyone with this new information about myself.

Dating a guy does not make me straight and dating a woman does not make me lesbian. Bisexuality is its own sexuality and should be seen as such.

I am not more likely to cheat because of my sexuality. Being bi does not make me unfaithful or promiscuous.

My history—with men or women—is none of your business. Period.

It's not a phase or "experimenting," it's who I am. Please see the previous point if you have questions about that.

My sexuality is not fake. It is real. I and countless others exist. This article is here to tell you I exist.

I'm bisexual and I'm coming out.
