    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

    I'm a pretty soft-spoken person.

    I'm the type who is always listening and rarely speaking during a conversation. Maybe this stems from being raised by a talkative and outspoken mother who could literally talk for hours while I just sat there and mostly listened. It's almost like I never developed that part of...

    Improving Myself

    Becoming a good person is important to me. i know this is going to sound a little bit corny but this year i sort of have a theme which is 'be the person i want to be.' Everytime i find myself to chicken or forget to do something, that line always runs through my head. Though...

    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...
