We girls know better than anyone that it's hard to let things go, whether it's that boy who's been toying with your heart or those pair of flats that you can't help but wear every day. Whatever it is, you can't help but be emotionally invested, and sometimes that can cloud your judgment. Although we want you to be happy when it comes to your love life, we also want you to look your best despite all the problems that inevitably come your way. Here are some things that we know are in your closet that you need to get rid of:

1. Your Ex's Sweatshirt. Nothing is more attractive than a guy with a good natural smell and when that guy finally gives you his sweater you can't help but surround yourself with it. Sadly, relationships do end and that is definitely the first thing that should go out of your closet. Don't wrap yourself in bittersweet memories and create space for better, more stylish clothes!

2. Jeans That Don't Fit Right. They might be stretchy but if they don't fit then there’s nothing you can do about it. Jeans are a girl's safe haven, not only do they conceal any unwanted appearances on your legs, but they also add a sleek edge to your outfit.  Make sure your jeans fit by knowing your actual size as well as your stretch!

3. That Cheap Top That's Falling Apart. We all have that shirt that we can't help but go back to even though it has holes in them. Despite our desperate attempts to cover it up with a handy sewing kit, once a shirt falls apart, it's all downhill from there. Because really, shirts with holes are better left unseen–in other words, tossed in the trash can.

4. Sports Bra With No Support. Good friends are always there for you when you need them, regardless of what they're going through. When it comes to working out there's no better person to support you than your very own sports bra and if she's not doing her job, then it’s definitely time to chuck her in the bin. They often say that comfort is the most important thing but how can you find comfort without support?

5. Your EX-BFF's Dress You Borrowed And Never Gave Back. There's a reason why she's your ex-bestfriend and not your current one, and keeping her dress is like keeping all the stress that came with that friendship bottled up inside. Give the dress back or get rid of it and splurge on a dress that expresses who YOU are.

6. The Ugly Present From Mom That Doesn't Match Anything.  We all love our mothers but sometimes fashion isn't something that we see eye to eye in. Be honest with her and tell her that it just isn't the right piece of clothing for you and give it to someone who needs it. It's always nice to give to organizations that stand for a great cause.

7. That Bag That's Falling Apart. Bags can serve as a girl's treasure chest, a place where the cutest and most useless junk is dumped into on a daily basis. Like any other chest, a container can only take so much. Once your go-to bag starts to fall apart, try to accessorize with bold colors! Nothing screams fashionista more than someone who knows how to pair things together.

8. That Dress You Have To Squeeze Into. One of the worst things that every girl has to go through is squeezing into a dress for a night out and feeling uncomfortable the entire time. When you're shopping for dresses, make sure you know the dress shape that fits you best and stick to it! Nothing looks better than a girl that’s comfortable in her own skin.

9. Worn-Out Flats. Flats are a girl's best friends. Not only are they a must but we're willing to bet that there is no girl without at least one pair of flats.  Although, there always comes a point when our materialistic other halves are just worn out and tired of us. And, honey? That’s the perfect time to let go. We know it's hard but as they say, there are many other fish in the sea.

10. That Item You Bought But Never Wore. We've all said it before. "I'll wear this when I get payat or when the right occasion comes!" Even though we're sure that your intentions are pure in the beginning, only purchase clothes that you can wear the minute you buy them. When you're ready to splurge on the latest trends, make sure you take note of 10 of the favorite things that exist in your closet to see if you'll actually be able to wear it. Don't worry, if you and that piece of clothing are meant to be, you two will find a way back to each other.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
