    I wish I could run away to a tropical island

    and never look back at my old life. No school, homework, drama. I'd take my best friend with me and we would have a blast. Being lazy in the sun all day, singing by a campfire every night. Yet here I am, stressing over homework. Close to a breakdown even though I just had...

    I am usually pretty good at handling stress

    but lately it's been getting to me. I have been having physical symptoms because of my stress now and I don't know how to fix it. I can't sleep, my eating is off, I can't focus, etc. I feel like I should not be so stressed because I am so blessed to have what I have in my life...

    Constantly. School is just crazy.

    I can't handle it all. I always manage to get it all done, but the feeling of failure overwhelms me.

    When I was little, I thought being an adult

    meant having the freedom and money to do whatever I wanted to do. How wrong I was. I lost my job recently, so I'm looking for one now. I can't afford college because, obviously, no job. I can't take a job that is far from my house (Okay, my grandparents house) because I have to...

    Tonight I'm going to eat

    and drink with my friends. I'm going to enjoy tonight and ignore all the stress I've been feeling. I'm going to ignore my money problems, my self esteem issues, my work stresses all for one night. I hope I can actually do it.

    I was stressed out today.

    My ex husband had lost his job, the house, everything. And since his entire family are psycho, and because he is the father of our child, he turned to me for help. Surprisingly, my fiancé agreed to lend him our spare room in the basement. But he's been here for a week, and it's...

    Finally finished my essay,

    climbing into bed at 1:45am. Probably should've finished my homework for other classes but I figured I better try to get a couple of hours of sleep before I have to wake up for school at 5:00am. Graduation needs to hurry up before I lose my mind!

    when nothing seems to go right. It's life. The way it is. Usually you take it in stride. Knowing time will move on; things will get better. Nothing is destined to stay as it is. No matter how long things are bleak or crumbling down everywhere. As the song says, you know...

    I have been letting things

    that are beyond my control take over my life and I need to just let go of some of this stress so that's what I'm going to attempt to do now. It's not healthy and my body is unhappy about the stress so I just have to find a way to make it less consuming.

    I'm in my early twenties.

    Stress has been my companion for years. When I was a young kid I moved abroad with my parents and when finally going to school with all of the kids who were locals - that's pretty much the moment when I became a loner. Or started to feel like one. So my social life has never...
