    Saw a photo of grandpa’s headstone today. They just recently got it placed and it just..hurts. It’s been almost 6 months since he passed and I still forget it’s even real.

    His passing broke up our family so much and turned everyone so hostile that it just makes me wish I could go back in time.

    Loss has always been somewhat easy for me but…[Read more]

    • I’m so sorry for your loss @xxbaybayxx, remember all the happy times and special moments you spent with your grandfather Oliver, hopefully your family will open up to each other and come back together, I would reach out to family members if you feel comfortable enough too and see what happens, things will work out and everything will be OK…[Read more]

    I miss having a good sleep schedule. I miss feeling well rested. Sure, I’m pregnant and fatigue has kicked in making me nap every day. But I’m just so tired of my daughter refusing to sleep till midnight. Everything I have tried has been a failure. I miss when she’d be asleep by 10.

    • I would try to find relaxing and soothing ways to help yourself and your daughter sleep more easily @xxbaybayxx, try listening to calm sounds, limiting screen time before bed, running a hot bath and drinking a hot drink before sleep, remember to spend as much time with your daughter as you can before you go to bed as well, hope everything works…[Read more]

    My boyfriend really wants me to start interacting with his family more but it’s so difficult! I’m not really the type to be friendly to strangers and to top that, family normally makes me uncomfortable to be around. His mother is majorly religious so I can’t even curse around her and I feel bad everytime I slip up. And I can’t really tell her…[Read more]

    • I would talk to your boyfriend about it @xxbaybayxx, let him know that being around his family makes you nervous, but at the same time, do try to get out of your comfort zone, break out of your shell because you will blossom and do great Oliver, I’m sure no matter what happens, everything will be OK Oliver, his family will love you because you…[Read more]

    Overdid it a little today.
    Boyfriend and I walked 5 miles without even thinking. Had a slight limp when we got home. But it’s all good, I got some free time outside.

    I feel bad.
    I moved all 6 states away to find my own happiness, to get away from my abusive family. And I was scared that I was going to hate it here, or that I’d become too homesick. But it’s been over 2 months and…I’m not. I don’t miss the town I was raised in. I don’t miss family or my old friends. I oddly enough don’t miss anyone.

    So…[Read more]

    • @xxbaybayxx, I experienced the same thing when I went to costa rica. What you have to realize is that there is a limited amount of things you can do for them. In the end, always put yourself first. Don’t feel guilty for trying to climb out of the hole you’ve been trapped in. You need to take time for yourself, and you’ve done that. So don’t…[Read more]

    I’ve always been the “bigger city” type of guy. Not so much in living aspect, but more of just…enjoyment of having so much to do.

    I’m in the same boat with you on that one. I’m very reserved and it makes me a vulnerable person for people to prey on. This is why I keep one close online friend, otherwise I grew to accept that I didn’t really want more than I have.
