    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.

    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...

    When I'm not making my goals,

    I'm stressed. I feel awful when I can't do something, when I'm not strong enough to do something. This semester has been so tough, but I'll make grades and get opportunities if it kills me. I haven't been eating great, I haven't been able to exercise properly, I haven't been...

    About to head to mediation

    for my divorce. So nerve racking! So stressed. And so thankful for my fabulous supportive friends. I'm not alone in this. God has a plan even in this mess. This will all work out and be ok. One day this will be just a memory.

    I am so frustrated and stressed out.

    I feel like I haven't done anything significant. I'm 20 years old and an incoming junior in college. I want to start a business so badly and am tired of school. Sometimes I have no idea why I'm suing 60k a year to study stuff I don't really care about. I just want to get out...

    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...

    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.
