I usually just try to keep myself so busy that I can't focus on what's upsetting me.... That and the fact that I realize things could always be worse!

I remind myself of the various fictional titles I had given myself which include negative feeling slayer and put in a mantra of "I choose not to be sad."

I write about it, it's how I express myself. But I just do it, and don't think about it. I think of how they need me to be their rock right now.

well.. as important as it is for you to be strong for others.. you have to remember that those people will be strong for you too.. dont feel like you have to carry the weight of everyone around on your shoulders.. it takes a strong person to carry everyones load.. but it takes a stronger person to allow others to help carry yours.. be willing to allow those people to be there for you too..

Have I told you lately that you give great advice?
Report as
no.. im usually too busy writing none sense answers to stuff for that topic to come up.. :)
Report as
Lol, I hear you. I think I give just as much non-sense advice as I do real advice.
Report as
yet your sporting over a 2:1 in thumbs up to questions asked.. impressive
Report as
Eh what can I say, people like me.
Report as
no arguments

Haha, I don't know why. I'm just some random girl, who answers random questions, on a random website.

i guess you just have that.. it.. factor
Report as
Hehe. How are you? Didn't get a chance to listen to that boyfriend remake. :(
Report as
awe.. well its still there for another time.. im alright.. sore.. im in the middle of a three day tennis tournament... both my first two matches went 5 sets and were brutally hard..other than that i really have nothing to complain about
Report as
Owwie! Ibuprofen, hot bath, and bengay. :)
Report as
whatd you call me? hahahahahhaa sry.. i know.. i have the mind of a 12 year old.. ;) just got done doing yoga (ya you read that right) that helped a lot
Report as
I've always wanted to do yoga. Just kind of expensive to do in classes here. I wouldn't want to do it alone I guess. LOL
Report as
i will ONLY do it alone... haha.. maybe i need a private female yoga teacher... hmmmm.. thats a thought..
Report as
Haha, freak. I can't do stuff like that on my own. I guess it's mainly wanting to make sure I'm doing it right? You know what I mean?
Report as
yea i hear ya.. to me its more about working on my flexibility and meditating my head clear.. more than striking a perfect pose.. if i do those 2 things i feel like ive done it correctly
Report as
That's very true. Do you have a yoga dvd? Or just do yoga videos off You Tube?
Report as
started off youtube.. have a routine i like now thats challenging.. so i have it memorized and just do it to music now..
Report as
I'll have to check it out on you tube then. I've been thinking about it, just between everything else, haven't found time lol
Report as
well.. with everything else an hour of meditation would probably be a good thing to fit in..
Report as
Oh I know. I've been trying, just not hard enough.

If the people loved you, they wouldnt put that pressure on you to be strong for them. do whats right for you and what your age mentality can handle
