    Unfortunately I always try to live up to

    peoples expectations. I don't try to do it, it just happens. So when I don't do things perfectly or what I think people will be happy with I have severe panic attacks/breakdowns. Why does the world have so many standards in which some of us feel like we have to fit into? I...

    My life goal is to become a better person every

    day. The only person I'm trying to outdo is the me from yesterday. Whenever I act selfish or complain about something insignificant, I remind myself of the MJ lyrics, "If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change."

    I'm working on being present.

    On living in the moment, but not in the way that justifies doing harmful, destructive things. Just living in the moment, in the purest sense. I'm working on listening. Like, really listening, without feeling the need to stuff in my opinion. Because at any given moment, I find it...
