    I don't think I ever told some,

    in person, that I am here for them.. In fact out side of writing things down I have never really expressed my feelings so outwardly to someone.. I always get uncomfortable to tell someone "you know I'm here for you right?" I don't if it's because I feel it might be to mushy or...

    Lately I've been down.

    I don't want to be down anymore so I've changed my diet, started exercising and trying positive affirmations. It's hard but I have to do this for my sanity.

    I start counseling today

    and the worst part is that my own father doesn't support me. He says its bullshit that I need help on controlling my anxiety and now my parents are taking my phone away from me before I go to bed :(

    I've realized that in life sometimes u

    not only focus on the unimportant things in life but sometimes we make those things priorities. I think once a person acknowledges that one has no control over the origin of their breath, life might be valued more. Once one realizes the first breath taken by u was given by God...

    I like to hope that Karma is something that's

    real, and balancing the universe. I really feel on occasion that it MUST be true, and others make me feel like it just CANNOT be the situation. I try very hard to be a good person. I like having people remember me fondly. I don't like the thought of a bunch of people walking...

    I've gone through a huge amount of change

    during the past few years of my life, but I'd like to continue to grow from that. I do think life is beautiful and that we have complete control of our outlook on it. We can choose to dwell in what's wrong or celebrate what is right. We can body shame ourselves or choose to...
