    I always try my best to think positive.

    Pretty much my whole life i've been my worst enemy. I learned to figure out not everyone's going to like you. That doesn't really matter. If you have a good group of people that are there for you and food, water, clothes, and shelter... that's all you really need think of the...

    I don't chase people anymore.

    I learned that I'm here and I'm important. I'm not going to run after people to prove that I matter

    I try to stay positive BUT I feel like I'm not

    allowed to. For example I am loving my job right now after leaving my other job that I had for years. I took a pay cut and less hours than my last job but I had to due to a transfer that my husband had, which made us relocate. I can't help but not enjoy the fact that I love my...

    It's incredibly hard

    for me to stay positive, especially when so many of my loved ones are filling my head with negative thoughts. I know they mean well - they aren't trying to break me down, they just want me to think realistically and consider the downsides. The problem is that they have no idea...

    Just think, You are not here by chance,

    but by God's choosing. His hand formed you And made you the person you are. He compares you to no one else- you are one of a kind. You lack nothing that His grace can't give you. He has allowed you to be here at this time in history to fulfill His special purpose for this...

    “Appreciate every little beautiful moment in

    every day of your life. Give it a try and you'll see the world from another perspective." Sometimes it's as simple as finding a reason in the present to continue on to the future. As negative as I can allow myself to be I find that I never have any trouble finding those...

    It's not so easy. There are moments,

    expressions, words, events that shape your mindset. You have to take a step back and take a good hard look at yourself and what you're taking on, what you're taking in, the people in your life. You have to choose what is feeding you life, and reject what is feeding you death...

    But it's not happening.

    I feel worthless. Like I'm not needed ever. I can see myself being alone till I die :-( I've never felt so alone. I miss those cuddles in bed at night. Or those hugs around the waist and kisses on the forehead. But I always seem to be last option. Why can't I be someone first...

    and the whole college process is over. All the grades are done and applications will be sent. A huge stress will be off my shoulders. I'll be able to relax a lot more and really enjoy the rest of my senior year (hopefully). I just need to breathe and stay positive, I'll be fine...

    I've learned that happiness is what you make it.

    If you want to be happy, then be happy. Suppress negative thoughts and encourage positive ones. Cut off unhealthy friendships / relationships and only encourage positive ones. Be around people who lift you up and not bring you down. It's actually surprisingly easier to achieve...

    but never did. I'm so reluctant to share my problems with anyone. How could they understand, anyway? I'm so different everyone else. So I keep it to myself. I'm always the one being strong for others until it becomes to much and one day I just explode into tears alone in my room...
