today I felt proud because I left my room. It had been 2 weeks that I hadn’’t left my dark room for anything but necessities. Today I showered, got dressed, watered my plants, and laid in the front yard for an hour. I even called a friend and talked through some heavy emotions. Today was a great success.
Honesty is key when it comes to establishing and maintaining relationships. If we continue to fool ourselves into thinking that lies are better than hard truths, we will never see our true purpose achieved. Let us continue to work toward honesty in every interaction as we live our lives.
(Not today, but a few months ago) I felt proud because when I went to a Turkey Hill to get something, some guy came up to me & told me he would give me money if I gave him a blowjob. I(who's very shy) firmly told him "No" and left. I'm still surprised that I was able to stand up for myself. But still, it sucks how I'm only 16 and I have to deal with adult guys catcalling me.. And everyone tells me to "just ignore them" but it still hurts me. I try to look like a guy, but it's never enough..
TIFP because I survived my first day in my own apartment! I moved out from my parents house and in with my boyfriend to another country yesterday and today I survived while he was at work, cooked, went shopping, made an important phone call despite my anxiety, and got through my first day as a New Adult!
We often attempt to calculate worth as to determine if something is worth our money, effort, or time. There are a large variety of factors that oftentimes influence these decisions, but it isn’t always easy to accurately calculate. When these calculations hold up our ability to make a decision, it may be best to simply move on. Let us not focus so heavily on the worth, but work to balance our decision making.
