The best relationship of your life will be with a girl who writes down her feelings in a journal or turns them into poetry. A girl who isn’t afraid of what is hidden inside of her heart. A girl who has a strong voice. A girl who knows her thoughts matter. A girl who knows she matters. The best relationship of your life will be with a girl who writes, because she never misses a detail. She pays close attention.
I spent 2017 pretending to be happy with myself instead of actively working on becoming better. I spent 2017 shriveled into a ball of insecurity instead of growing into the girl I was meant to become. I spent 2017 crying behind bathroom doors and wiping the tears away before anyone could catch them fall.
I don’t like big groups. I’m not the kind of person who will fight to speak in a roomful of people. I will blend into the background instead. I will stay silent. I will make myself invisible to keep my stress levels low. No one will realize I’m around, because I make a point to shrink myself into nonexistence. I don’t like loud noises. I avoid bars where the DJ blasts music so loud that it is impossible to hear the person sitting next to you.
Some people are meant to hurt me so that I can learn a lesson about raising my expectations. Some people are meant to let me down so I can learn about relying on myself. Some people are meant to leave too early so I can learn about cherishing what I have while it is still there.
"Wanting attention does not make you difficult to love. Needing quality time together does not make you difficult to love. Expecting someone to treat you as a priority instead of a backup plan does not make you difficult to love."
"You have to stop settling for almost relationships and calling it love. It’s not love when they won’t answer your texts. It’s not love when they keep canceling plans. It's not love when they make you feel like this."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
