    I Do Try.......

    I have bouts of being positive ...it does help. Trouble occurs when after your best efforts, life goes all wrong again, negativity sets in and its hard to remember to think positively, let alone do it. I may as well try again though, even if I can't have what I want or reach any...

    Is It Worth It?

    I have always tried to think the best of everyone and everything. However, when I do think positive, it seems nothing ever turns out, so tell me, why even bother? I feel like I might as well be smashing my head against a wall, in expecting anything to turn out a good way. If...
