    My mother said: "The question you must ask

    yourself if you feel something as to change in our life is: what benefit do I have of not changing? And how important is that to me? Well, let me ask myself that question. Because I feel I want to change, because I feel I lack activity. What benefit do I have from not changing...

    Today has been a hard day.

    It's like one where you are between a rock and a hard place. Or you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. I don't know what to do.

    I think I should write a list of goals

    for this year because it will be good if I can achieve them by 2017: Meet new people Work harder at school Leave the house more Loose weight I think if I have them down it will motivate me more.

    How did i find out i had mental issues?

    well, when you feel drunk when you haven't had a drink. When you feel pain but you haven't been hurt ... for a long time i felt like the life inside me had been sucked out. But, i got past it, no medication, no counselling. i healed myself, and you can do the same, i promise...

    I announced at work my intention to leave.

    It forced me to crystalize into words what went wrong. What it amounts to is that I am not very good at it: the talents it requires I don't seem to have much of, and the talents I have it doesn't seem to want to make use of. And I see no value in it. I think the whole...

    I feel like I need a change.

    I remember when someone said that if you want to be happier than you are don't expect anything from anyone and you'll appreciate more the good things that happen to you. I'm kinda curious about it and I don't think it's such a bad idea. What do you guys think?
