    I keep stalking him on facebook.

    And I hate it. And everytime I decided not to stalk him anymore, his picture just appear on my timeline hanging out with one of my facebook friends. And then I get depressed and think about him again. What should I do?

    Stressed out it's an understatement

    for me right now. So my son's fathers parents called and I wasn't going to answer it because I thought they were going to annoy me about my ex and I always arguing so I didn't answer . The 3rd time they called I was like what's going on ?! They never call me and why call me when...

    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...

    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!

    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 have so many things going on this week.

    First Easter is coming up and my family is coming to visit me, so I've been stressed about what to make for dinner because my brother had a gluten and lactose sensitivity, as well as when I'll have time to clean the house. And then I've developed a program at my internship but...

    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...

    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've made decisions in my life

    that some family members have taken exception to. I'm so overwhelmed by rejection and arguments ..... Why is one generation so accepting of those who identify with LBGTQI and yet others will slam the door in your face?

    Everything is piling on top of everything else

    and the pointless tasks that need done are shouting in my ear. I have so much more important things to take care of than all of this. But of course, I suppose I'm the only one that considers them important.

    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...
