I Am Trying to Change My Outlook On Life

Are you trying to change your outlook as well? 94 People

    Well, as many of my EP friends know,

    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...
