i did move back for my bachelors and started working home care which has pros n cons; great flexibility for class and work but crappy pay.December 6, 2016 at 5:38 am #122024
I would be so thankful for you to do that with me! I feel my mother sacrificed her pride and some of her wants to provide me with some necessities. I feel like I owe it to her to give back these days (now that Im financially capable of doing so). I feel like I sacrificed the life a lot of people close to my age had, having my own car, being able to work, explore the world of blossoming adulthood in essence. However, I realized just as u asked me this question, that I became quite comfortable with this lifestyle for a time, and didn’t necessarily add anything enriching to make me happy. That’s my part in it allDecember 5, 2016 at 3:19 pm #121992
Thank you Claref! 🙂
I cant thank u enough for taking the time out of your day to help the way you did. I didn’t notice how inconsiderate my actions were being translated to others. Anitas kind words helped me to see that. Seeing that, i read a pos of yours. I dont know which kind of day youre having, but I hope tomorrow’s better than today. Sending pleasant and positive vibes your way.
Thanks againDecember 5, 2016 at 3:12 pm #121991
I feel awful for not knowing that there was a trend as to who was giving m their insight, and certainly wouldn’t want u to think that Id intentionally disregard your thoughtful guidance. I struggle with remaining in touch w my emotions and I think youre more than awesome for challenging me to improve my opinion of emotional expression with myself and to others. As much as its hard for me to accept reality, you called me to take notice of that problem I have. I fear being seen as too vulnerable and how would u recommend that someone let that go and b emotionally mature enough to do that. I like that youre present with your thoughts. Your words were honest, considerate and what I needed to hear. Thank u Anita

Thankfully, I hadn’t pulled a random number guys, that I was talking to out of thin air. There were four other guys, whom I was getting to know at the time. I was bothered that you believe I was trying to intiate a chase of some sort. It was not my intention to make him “chase” me. I made a joke expressing the amount of guys I talk to. When you first begin dating, it is actually normal to entertain the company of more than one person, especially if you are not intimate with them. My belief is, unless you and someone plan to start a serious relationship, he or she is entitled to speaking with someone else.July 23, 2014 at 8:05 pm #61652
I apologize to Kelly for the comment about only wanting a mans opinion! To answer the question, hes 25 and Im 21.
I just messaged him but he said absolutely NOTHING! I said ‘I dont understand you. You said things wouldnt work out but viewed and liked my profile. That was 6 hours ago. He’s said nothing to me. At this point I feel like Im wasting my time on a fool. Feedback anyone?July 29, 2013 at 9:37 am #39366
you are absolutely welcome! I hope all is well, and may you have a blessed day. You were given obstacles because God knew you could handle them. Yes it is hard, but you are a very strong woman from what I see, with all you have endured. I hope this made your day a bit better 🙂July 24, 2013 at 7:26 pm #39144
You know, I have become so desensitized to believe that it is wrong to cry, or that when a person cries, they are sad. Sometimes I cry out of pure joy, excitement or surprise. Youre absolutely right, suppressing the truth can become very overwhelming and exhausting– I guess I have gotten to the point of exhaustion. Being scared of what makes me comfortable is the hardest battle I have been fighting for a while but it can be combated! In through being so over-analytical of life, I forgot to have fun. I forgot how important it is just to be care-free and just be! You spoke very encouraging words, and for that I thank you!!!!!July 24, 2013 at 3:56 pm #39138
Wow! You sound like a powerhouse. I have been on tinybuddha for a month now, and your story touches me especially because I myself have been through similar things you have. I’m usually not that good with encouraging others, but you are strong and i commend you. Im 18, youre a few years older than me, and if I knew you, I would see you as a role model. You acknowledge your issues, which takes A LOT, you are honest with yourself, but I cant help but feel bad that you sell yourself short. You are strong, beautiful and PLEASE do not let anyone or anything make you feel any different. Everybody in life has a story, and you never know who may be touched by your story. You are a veryyyyy inspiring person, and I think things for you will get better. TinyBuddha is a blessing for a lot of us. Whenever you feel things are getting a little to hectic, just know the people on the forums [here] will always be here to give kind, guiding words. I hope this helped!!July 22, 2013 at 4:58 pm #39067
You are strong to have gone out and pursued a dream that most people do not pursue. Do not underestimate yourself PLEASE!!! You made the biggest step of following dreams. Youre gonna struggle a bit, but the feeling of doing what you love will outweigh the doubt and fear. Pursue it and jump in with both feet. You have the drive.July 22, 2013 at 4:24 pm #39064
One of my biggest fears is growing old and not knowing my purpose or to have never been comfortable with myself. Im 18, and one my aunts would always call me an old soul. After finding out what that meant, I realized I was. I could never understand why I was not interested in partying, why I was not boy crazy like all my friends, why I was made fun of because my old-fashion way of seeing life. Now that I’m in college, I’m finding out more about myself and it scares me sometimes. Society can be critical to anybody who is outside the ‘norm’. I want to be comfortable in my own skin. Its so cool to see people who just dont care about what people think; I envy those people. When I try to tell my “friends” I want to find my purpose, they laugh at me or call me ‘momma goose.’ We’re taught to go to school, get an education, get married, and have children, but nobody told me how to find myself and just be happy with me. Outside forces like social networking sites, make me feel even more like an ‘outcast’ because I do not use them, because I do not like what they represent. I currently am out of school, and spending a few weeks by myself. I want to become comfortable by myself, without any chaotic forces. If only there were NO negative influences that would make everybody who is deemed an ‘outcast’ feel so much more comfortable. Its kinda funny because, as I got older, I always thought everybody found their purpose once they were 18. Once I turned 18, I didnt know my purpose. I have so many questions about like, but I dont know any of the answers.
