    For the past few years I've been addicted to

    social media. This has hurt my schoolwork and even my social life. When I would hang with my friends, I was always glued to my phone. My friends started calling me out on it. My parents even talked to me about it. It finally hit me that I was wasting my life on the Internet...

    Well just left the gym.

    . My goal is at least 15 min everyday.. Walking to my vehicle I looked in the western sky and saw a bright star and just a sliver of the moon. I thought how like my heart the moon is. And how now the only thing left is the sliver but I have hope that someday it will be full again...

    I love that I can write here without fear of

    being "found out" or having these stories traced back to me. I don't even write about my feelings here to seek validation, it's just cathartic to get it all out into the universe that a) I feel like crap, b) I can't wait to stop feeling crappy, and c) if there are those out...

    As I get older I'm learning more

    and more to be myself.... I don't only live to please others, to take care of others, to make everyone else happy....Sometimes I have to be a little selfish...to think of ME first..... After all, this journey is mine.... And the clock is ticking

    When I was 18, I smoked a pack

    and a half of cigarettes each day, drove everywhere I possibly could, and was NOT in good shape at all. At 46, I'm in the best shape I've ever been in, I walk as much as possible, and I run 3.5 miles in 30 minutes 4 or 5 times per week. Not bragging, mind you, just sharing...

    I'm not where I once was

    but sometimes I still get nervous when people stare at me, male or female. It was much worse, it'd make me so worried & upset & insecure. But getting over it, slowly. I've been out of my country and I get the same reactions even abroad when I'm in public. I guess whatever it is...

    I listen to Alan Watts's discussions a lot

    and they help me understand many things about life. Also, I've been meditating, tried to be positive and not be scared of life.

    I procrastinate a lot.

    I know it's a problem & I have to reign it in sooner than later (I'm 25 not 15 lol lol... Time's a tickin'). I'm not sure if it's because I always have 100 things on my mind at once that I wanna do/start/finish, or if it's out of a "fear" of actually getting certain things...

    According to the BMI (Body Mass Index)

    for my current height weight and age I am obese. And I am. I know this and it has bugged me for a long time. But I want to change how I am. I want to get fit and feel better about myself. Now I am stretching every morning and trying to get in better health.

    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...

    where it should be. I feel like I'm stuck at my 14/15 year old self sometimes, at least mentally. Even though physically I have moved on, the way I feel about things still reminds me of the things that happened when I was that age. Which tells me I have a lot of healing to do...

    but I have no idea where to start. I feel like I don't know what I want anymore. Like everything I wanted before is just so out of reach. I feel like I'm a totally different person, and not in a good way.

    My husband says I don't respect him,

    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 despise conflict. it makes me physically ill.

    i will retreat into myself, sometimes for days, weeks, or years, to avoid conflict and create harmony. BUT that means sacrificing a part of myself and leading a substandard life, and I've "settled" enough in this lifetime. i want to develop the strength to fight for what's right...

    I enjoy meeting new people.

    But to truly get close to anyone I have to remove the trust barrier that's naturally there. Take some time to kinda feel out someone's vibe and observe them. People meet me at first and most think I'm shy, but my true friends (n they didn't get there overnight), they know once...
