    I want to change the way I talk to people.

    I want to ask them how they are. I want to make sure they're okay before we enter conversation. I want to change the way I walk. I want to walk with confidence, even if it's the last thing I feel. I want to walk with courage, like I'm going somewhere. I want to change the...

    Changes In My Life - Part 3

    After the funeral I made a new decision for change. I was the executer of Mum’s estate so it fell to me to dispose of her assets and distribute the proceeds as she had wished. While I was organising all of that, I decided that I was going to liquidate all of my assets also. I...

    I have limited myself only to an amount and not binge eat like I normally do. I think this is great because like a really good friend on here once told me "Take baby steps" and that's what I'm doing. I haven't exercised but I will get to work soon. I'm going on vacation...

    I want to change my life.

    I want to find myself happier, healthier, and more prioritized by the end of summer. I want to feel more confident, more in control, more fearless, more steady. I just want to make the changes.

    Has anyone ever just wanted to,

    I don't know, completely start over? Do everything different. Do everything you were afraid of. Try again, but make it better. Make your life a greater one. One that you wouldn't want to start over with. That's what I want. I'm barely 17 and I'm already filled with regrets...

    I don't want to be The Silent Guy anymore.

    All my life that is what they called me and now all I want is to be just like them, not silent but sociable. To be someone others can depend upon and for me to have fans all over. My ideal is to write but wouldn't that make me a friends for the wrong reasons?
