    I must admit, I can become extremely nervous

    about the unknown. I am a person who requires control to survive certain situations. I am attempting to let this go.

    I always obsess about

    why people look at me with disgust. I know i don't believe in jesus but sometimes i feel i live the life he did, being made fun of and disliked just because of my looks. In the bible it says jesus wasn't attractive.

    I have a bad habit of stressing a lot

    especially with my friends. One of my friends I try my best to hangout with but he is usually bust or wants to just workout. Whenever I try talking to him about it he says I'm overthinking it and I should relax. I guess I need to work on myself.

    why we stress over things we cannot control.

    . because if everything always worked out the way we want, then nothing would ever be wrong.

    My teacher told me that in times of stress

    and anxiety, she pauses and tells herself "this doesn't really mean anything and it's all in my head." I thought that was pretty cool because really, all of it doesn't matter but we train ourselves to believe so.

    that I don't have control over everything in my life. That's a frightening idea to grasp. I'm working on learning to just accept when things are out of my control though. :)
