A matter of semantics, I am not dead therefore I am alive. I do not feel alive though. I feel oppressed, depressed and, yes I’ll say it, stressed.
But by focusing on the good stuff in my life (and there is good stuff) then one can ameliorate the affects of the downturn. 2 weeks ago
It’s time to do this! 2 weeks ago
...Totally and utterly failed when it comes to this goal. I am disappointed at myself. 4 weeks ago
I am an artist at heart and I want nothing more than to spend my days drawing, writing, and in the end just creating things. For most of my school years I was always told by the teachers how hard that would be to make a living so I would lie about what I wanted to become and eventually that is what everyone expected me to be and I started to believe that it was what I really wanted. I started to believe it because it would have been harder to be an artist. But I just couldn’t drop art or forget it. It has came back to me after years of telling myself it would be too hard. But the hardest part would have to be regretting the easy path that I took instead of creating art I truly wanted too. 4 weeks ago
Never thought I’d say something like that, but there are lessons in life we must learn before some other things start happening. For the very first time I’m happy to be where I am, I’m proud of my choices and living my old dream: go to college and learn about VISUAL ARTS (or Plastic Arts). I’ve moved to a new different city, made new friends, kept the precious old ones… I must confess I’ve never been so alive, happy and grateful in a long long time. Change make our blood rush through our veins, that’s how you’re sure you’re ALIVE! 1 month ago
Do everything I’ve always wanted to do! 1 month ago
To live in the moment and appreciate all the good around me. 1 month ago
I am not one to live in the moment, I tend to cruise by and think about things later. The problem is when I think about these things later they are usually in a negative way. I am scared to go out and experience life and put myself out there.
I am so scared I even think twice before driving to the shop, I fear crashing the car and hurting someone or worse. I don’t walk in the evening for fear of being robbed etc.
As a child my mother rasied me with fear, I assume this was to keep me safe but now as an adult soon to be in my thirties I realise this is no way to live.
To go out into the world with confidence and live life to the fullest sounds AMAZING! 2 months ago
