    Yes I do! Stop the doom

    and gloom! Thinking and feeling negatively gets you nowhere! It weakens your immune system because you're run down from all the stress, worry and sadness! It's not good for your health nor mind! Thinking negatively gives you a negative attitude and it makes you feel bad so...

    And I'm working on it.

    It will take some time and I will slip up sometimes, but that is part of the battle.

    Constant Negative Thoughts

    I feel tensed and worry a lot most of the times for no reasons. Be it worrying about my parents and their health, be it my relation with my wife or worrying about my child. Every happy moment leads to worry that it might become sad instantly.

    I've been going through a lot of growth

    Even when friends tell me time

    and time again that I'm pretty and intelligent, I refuse to acknowledge it. I've always been ugly, worthless and a complete idiot. What is the point of dressing up in the morning, taking showers and wearing appropriate clothing if there is no point. Just...why bother... And this...

    I've had a lot of negative things to say lately

    about my marriage, and life in general! So I thought I should try to start writing some good things. Not that it's wrong to vent, in some cases it's helpful. But I realize I have a pattern of negative thoughts and I should try to change. It's hard. Lots of people are...

    I am at this point where I don't want to live

    but I also don't necessarily want to die. I just can't see myself in the future. Living as a regular adult. I wish I had this talent that would make me amazing. I can't sing or dance. I can't write or draw. I'm terribly awkward with people and not specifically social. I just don...
