    Negativity

    - So here I am trying to be ever so positive and feeling lower and lower every day. Sometimes I can barely get up the give-a-damn to get out of bed in the morning. Every day is worse than the last. And then what happens? I finally give up. I make the most negative decision I have...

    I heard a positive advice

    for people that are scared to talk to strangers (girls in my case): "It's just another friend you don't know yet"

    Tonight i lay here thinking about my day.

    ... I started it off scared of change... Of being set up to fail.... Of not being able to accomplish the challenges ahead of me... After awhile of beating myself up i picked my head up and stood tall facing my fears .. It was not easy by any means but i realized there are no...

    Well...if nothing else,

    at least I keep getting told I look younger than I am. It's just odd since I was one of those kids who hit puberty early and always looked older than my age. Nice to know things evened out in the end. lol

    It's been about five month

    It's not as easy as some people seem to make it

    look. But if I can just think of one good thing in my long day I call it a success. Positives seem to be easier to recognize when the rest of your life isn't so negative. Still important to try and see what isn't as bad as it could be or life will eat you up and spit you out...

    I've never found positive thinking is a

    substitute for action -thinking makes nothing change- but it's the most important first step. Also I want to think more positively, and see the positive side, about others.
