It’s been a hard year. As I get older things are seemingly more difficult. I’m trying to keep my head up, but after what happened yesterday I couldn’t sleep. I felt pretty rejected without much of an opportunity to prove what I’m capable of. Who retracts a job offer in email, anyway? I’m 26, I didn’t realize adults did that sort of thing?
So I’m here… writing about my life because I can’t find my journal since everything is packed up. Here is where I’m going to pack up the beginning of my year, seal it it up, and keep it that way.
It’s not my fault; I’ve been blaming myself, which isn’t helpful. I’ve created a correlation between events this year and things that I have done in my life that could have lead to this. That isn’t how it works and I’m not a bad person. This year has just been one blow after another.. Lost my grandfather, who was the closest thing I had to a father. I have been working my ass off to get into the Physical Therapy Assisting Program for the past year… didn’t get in. My best friend loses her brother unexpectedly and I struggled with being there for her because I couldn’t figure out what she needed. This recent job thing was the final push.
I’m broke and tired and disappointed with how things are playing out with my career.
With that being said…. I need to seal my words and move forward. Sitting here dwelling about it doesn’t make me feel better.

Anonymous asked: What are your thoughts on missing someone? It's significance, how to deal with it, etc? :) thank you <3
Majority of the time we don’t always miss the person per se, but we miss the way they made us feel. So it is the feeling that we’re actually missing.

1. Learn to recognize when you are feeling stressed – This will help you to reduce your stress before it is expressed as destructive anger.
2. Work on developing your empathy – Trying to see things from another’s perspective often helps to dissipate intense…

I am extremely happy with my life right now. Things are not perfect and I’m not precisely where I want to be in my career, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’m in a good place for who I am right now.
Each day I become more and more skilled at being myself. In terms of defining my personality, but mostly believing that I can make things work for me.
