    I try to be the best I can,

    and improve what I can about me. One of the great hardships with this is if you are in a companion relationship or marriage, is the gap that widens when the other has no interest in changing for an improved life/lifestyle. You have to tread lightly and accept that they are...

    One time I didn't really have any friends.

    But I wanted people to like me. So I changed to a more wild version of me. Within a week I had atleast 10 more friends. They wanted to talk every second. I got more likes on my pictures and status. People came out of the woodworks. But that wasn't me. That wasn't how I truely am...

    I lost my grandfather 2 years ago

    and I've thought about him everyday since. I'm not a very religious person, actually I'm not religious at all, but I strive everyday to make him proud. Since his death I have devoted most of my time to education (something he held as a high virtue) and I have quit smoking pot...

    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...

    The time has come where I need to take time

    for me. The mousy, shy and self-deprecating people needs to take a back seat to the person I want to be. I need to stop making lists and and start taking action.

    I did terrible things in the Great War.

    It's a hard thing to do improving yourself.

    I try to be a very open minded person. I think that's why I'm easy to get along with most of the time. I do have my faults though. I'm very set in my opinions though I will listen to anyone and respect their choices I can judge rather harshly. I need to work on that. I also can...

    I have been gluten free

    for about 5 years now. About a year ago I cut out dairy. Now no drinking or smoking pot. I am so satisfied and happy with my diet. The biggest thing I've noticed is mental clarity. Physically yes you loose weight and gain energy, but your mind will be the biggest benefactor.
