How..?

How do you get the motivation to make a life change? It’s just so comfortable to stay stuck in old ways.

Positive Outlook?

I’ve been told I’m an anxious person and that I should switch how I look at life. To look at it in a more positive way. I don’t know whether to be insulted or to harness that and try to work with it. I’ve been trying my whole life to look at the positive side of things. So when someone tells me I need to do that I get a bit taken aback. Do you think I have the right to?

When to tell?

When do you decide to tell someone about this part of your life? Mental illness I mean. I feel like I told someone too fast and that swayed how things turned out. Or maybe it wasn’t how fast I said it but things were going to go this way regardless. If you trust someone, does it really matter the amount of time you’ve known them?

Kind Souls

Why is it the kindest souls that seem to get the brunt of things? Or is it that were just so sensitive that we think bad things always happen to us? Hardships change that kindness. For some people, into a better person and for others, into something rough and jaded. For me, I am in the middle. I’ve become a mix of both. My kindness isn’t what it use to be. It’s more on the compassionate side now. It really is a blessing and a curse.
