Yup, that just happened to me.

Hey my wonderful friends! A few of my classmates & I are conducting some research for a class. I need ALL of my friends who are or if you know someone who is currently attending an undergrad college/university to please help me out by filling out this survey! It will only take 2-3 minutes of your time. This survey is anonymous. No one, including the researchers, will be able to associate your responses with your identity. Your participation in the survey is voluntary. You may choose not to take the survey. Your completion of the survey serves as your voluntary agreement to participate in this research project and your certification that you are 18 years of age or older.

Ps. Also, if you can help me out by spreading the word. That would be so great. Thank you all SO MUCH.

Do I value what you have to say even if it isn’t something I agree with or understand? If not, then I will begin a process of judgements and punishments that send messages of invalidation. 
Many of us don’t realize that we create a world where everyone has to look and sound like us or we have no value for them. Before I know it I’ve surrounded myself with myself in order to get along with others.

One of the hardest things that was said to me, tonight.

Why do relationships have to be so hard, sometimes?

Me, on weekends: forever alone.

It’s so weird being on a campus filled with so many people, and yet feel so alone.
