    Anther Day Anther.. Aww Whats The Point

    My life is full of nothing but disappointment at this point. As If the city I live in isn't bad enough, I'm also trying to accept myself. I can't seem to find enjoyment in things anymore. In my mind I'm the worst person out of the people I know. The reason I feel this way is I...

    Anything Can Bring Me Down.

    Lately, I've always been in a bad mood. I can't look forward to things, and I don't want to be happy. It's like I'm addicted to being upset and negative. Any little thing or memory can make me upset, and cause me to go under. I hate that. I don't know why I like to do it. And I...

    im not terribly good at it.

    I think of positive things but the thoughts dissolve like ashes in the rain. i found treasure but its not mine to keep. the brightest gem is one i have to see go elsewhere. i wish this lie called life would end.

    I Totally Agree. I Had Knee Surgery And I Am Progressing Nicely! But Its Hard To Be Positive

    Everyone says hey you're doing better etc etc. But seriously my parents dont make it easy on me. You would think even with a knee injury I would get a little sympathy. Nope not possible. I can't help it that I am over emotional. Pain killers have that side affect but i stopped...

    Stay Neutral, If Not Positive.

    You don't have to be brimming with sunshine and rainbows, but don't associate with negative judgments and thoughts. They're going to exist unless you're constantly satisfied with your life (and who is?), so just take any negative thoughts and neutralize them rather than trying to...

    My head is a complete chaos.

    Nothing seems to make sense anymore. And it causes me to overthink everything and to push people away. I can't concentrate on anything longer than 20 seconds. Sometimes I wish I couldn't think. Sometimes I wish I didn't have a memory. But I do and that's what makes it worse...

    For me it's really the positive part.

    See, when I look at myself, I gotta say that optimism is one of my most strongest qualities, but that is a whole world away from positivity. I can be optimistic about the dumbest things but when it comes to thinking positively, it's one of those things that I sometimes shut out...

    When life constantly gets me down,

    it's hard to not be full of anger, resentment, bitterness etc. I try and 'get on with it' but I don't have a great poker face so it's probably obvious I'm massively unhappy, even if I don't actually say it. I do generally admire people who don't let life get them down, but I'm...

    Not Just Hard...

    ...but right now nearly impossible. Negative emotions feed on themselves and one the feeding frenzy starts, it takes SO much to stop it. Right now I'm being picked apart piece by piece.

    One Thing After Another!!!

    especially the past 10 years or so, i have found it really difficult to stay positive about myself and the direction that my life is going, cos it always seems that no matter how hard i try to change my life, to make a better life for myself, and to move on from the past, there...

    Need Help Being More Positive...

    Most days I would definitely say I'm positive. And when I'm positive, I am VERY positive. Like "I love everyone, I want to hug them all, and make them smile!" My moods are typically extreme. Like very happy and positive or very sad and negative. That's due to mental illness but...

    I feel like everyone wants me around,

    but no one wants me... I've been staying at a friends house and doing everything for everyone.. I really like his sister and I've been treating her like a queen, but I'm stuck in the friend zone. And now if I stop being so nice I'll just seem like I turned into an ******* and...

    I made a commitment to myself to use the law of

    attraction for 31 days.. In my commitment I included writing at least one positive affirmation before I go to bed, visualising daily about something positive and not focusing on negative thoughts, but shifting my focus at something else when this happens. It's day #9 and things...

    Taking Control!

    I have had a great couple of days. And it has brought me out of a semi bad state of mind. While things are still drab in most ways health wise, I have the most wonderful people in my life to lean on. My parents really are there when I need them, even from 5 hours away, my husband...

    Sometimes I need to be reminded

    that I mean something to someone, not just because I forget that someone cares, but because it's hard to trust when someone says something when everyone has done the opposite.

    Negative

    I'm a negative person by nature...not sure why that is or where it started. Have always looked at the glass as half empty, expected the worse from anyone or anything, have always thought about the worst case scenario. If something can go wrong, it will...those kinds of thoughts...

    One way to fly ! is to accept every thing

    what ever that comes in our way. When there are no hard feelings or soft feelings attached to the actions, it is very easy to handle the results with ease. Handling results with ease will keep one self in calm and let us stay positive for ever. Every thing happens for a reason...
