    I'm trying to end the viewing of *********** in

    Life sometimes makes me nervous

    and sometimes when I go to sleep I pray that I won't wake up. Despite this I push through it, endure my underlying anxiety about living and try to make the most out of my life x

    Time For A Major Overhaul!

    I don't like myself much right now, I'm really not happy with anything, I just feel like I want to runaway and not deal with any of it, snag is you can't runaway from yourself. Everything feels wrong and I don't know how to make it right, I know it's partly about perception, when...

    Taking Responsibility

    I read a story in this group today that made me really sad. I thought about it for a while and I realize so many people don't realize what is causing their repeated problems is themselves. Long ago I realized I am an adult. I can not let other people dictate how I behave. They...
