    Well, as many of my EP friends know,

    I have been struggling a lot with PTSD, depression, triggers, etc. That is no longer the case though! Lately, I have been so happy and at peace, it's unbelievable. I began meditating through a guided meditation app on my phone, and it has brought so much peace inside of myself...

    Compaining And Negativity

    I am a morose person by nature. There have been numerous times where I have been so disgusted by the way I think and the way I treat people. I want to change. Looking on my experiences, I have realised how much I complain. I don't even realise it. I want to stop because I don't...

    New Vision

    i am trying to change my outlook on life because  I used to be a very negative person and had this delusion that everyone was trying to get one over on me. i always blamed all my troubles on everyone but the one who was really at fault, me.
