21 Types Of Sex Every Long-Term Couple Has Probably Had

Because sex isn't always hot.

"Sex and pizza, they say, are similar. When it's good, it's good. When it's bad, you get it on your shirt." - Mike Birbilgia

Sex. The inevitability of almost EVERY boy-meets-girl (or boy-meets-boy, girl-meets-girl, whatever floats your boat). It's easily one of the most messily fun things we humans get to do, and if you're lucky, you get to have a LOT of it. If you're luckier, you get to have a lot of it with the same person, all the while feeling all mushy and emotional about it. All the while being with someone you'd actually want to have breakfast with the next day, and then lunch, and then you know...maybe a wedding. And if you're sleeping with this special someone, then your sex-life probaaaably looks something like this.

To anyone who has been bullied in life, you know what hell it is.

It's frustrating, exhausting, daunting, and pretty much life-altering.

And, in most cases, it doesn't stop till you get out of those circumstances and move on to the next phase of your life, a phase that's hopefully better.

That's when the real struggle begins. The struggle to get over that which was inflicted upon you, undo the damage and not carry the emotional baggage on your shoulders for too long.

13 Times You Felt Weird About Life, But It Was A Sign You're Doing OKAY

When the strangest things make the most sense.

"The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday." - Anonymous

I remember rolling my eyes when I first read this quote. It made no sense to me - competing only against myself in this seemingly endless rat race made zero sense. But then I grew up. A little. And I realised that literally the only thing I could hope to be was "better". Perfection, I learnt, is an idea sold to us - an invisible pressure that never turned anyone into a diamond. And, honestly, this mini-epiphany made me beyond uncomfortable. It also gave me a sense of peace - like I could finally stop exhausting myself out, chasing things I didn't even want in the first place. Comfort is quicksand, I realised. And that's exactly what all of us should keep in mind. Here are those moments from which you should take away not negativity but...hope.

17 Bollywood Movies Of The 21st Century That Taught Us A Thing Or Two About Life

Because combining artistic and commercial success is an art in itself.

We often disregard Bollywood movies when it comes to the question of cinema with artistry in the belief that the industry makes movies that are based on male superiority, unrealistic and superficial storylines, objectification of women and the incessant need to place entertainment over quality and information. And while all of those things are true most of the time, this industry, every now and then, has given us something worthwhile to watch and look forward to.

Nayyirah Waheed. A poet who defined what creating a revolution simply with your words could be. Someone who went on to heal millions of people with evocative, simple writing. Until I came across her work, I always thought that "good" writing had to be complicated. That you can only make people feel strongly with long words, complicated metaphors and poetry that runs into paragraphs. But Nayyirah, with her powerful yet extraordinarily everyday words, broke through my defences. Her Instagram is one of the most honest, empowering places on the internet, and her words - well, they inspire.
