I need a part time job that pays $20,000 per week.
I just need 1000
I seriously appreciate my boyfriend so much. It’s refreshing to have someone that pays attention to the things I like. Even though he doesn’t like the same things as me he still goes out of his way to take me to do things that he knows I will enjoy. Especially when it comes to art. I’m always dragging him along and introducing him to things he would never do if he hadn’t met me.

I wish i had read this a long time ago.. There are some people who are determined to see you the way they want to no matter what you do to prove otherwise. I’ve waisted a lot of time trying to prove myself to someone that wasn’t worth the energy. As long as you know who you are, you have no reason to prove it to those that aren’t willing to believe it.
I am trying to make a better effort at strengthening my relationships with my family and loved ones. It is important to not be negative and hold onto things. I too often let things that happen affect my mood for the entire day and it isn’t healthy. Over the years i have become much more sensitive and i want to work on that. I have been through a lot in my life and i have come a long way, and i am proud of myself for being as strong as i have through all of it. I know that there is always room for improvement and just because people may be negative around me it doesn’t mean that i need to take that negativity and carry it around. I am working on clearing my mind and focusing on being more positive. My social work professor is always talking about how if we want certain people to be a part of our support system then we need to be a support system for them. We can’t expect people to fill our needs without also filling theirs. Hearing this was a form of enlightenment for me. We hear all of the time to do to others as you would want done to you, but when hearing it in that context it really hit home for me. As a child you depend on people to help you build a support system, whether it be blood family or other caregivers, but as you grow and get older you need to build that for yourself. Your family isn’t always going to give you the support you may want or need. For a long time i expected people to be there for me at a time when they actually needed me to be there for them. Although it is important to take care of yourself, sometimes you need to reach out to other people and be there for them before they can be of support to you. You need to first be selfless. If after you have reached out and given support to someone, and they didn’t reciprocate, you can then make the decision to not be a form of support for them anymore. It is important though to realize that sometimes those people don’t have the ability to be that for you. I’ve learned that you can’t give up on people before you know that you have reached out and done your part. We live in a society that is based on individualism and doing things for ourselves and we have forgotten the importance of doing things for others. We are taught to be selfish and to only do things that will come back to benefit us in some way. As human beings we all need each other, whether we like to believe it or not. No person can survive alone without eventually becoming mentally unstable. My goals for myself are to be more patient, to make more of an effort to talk to my family and listen to the things they want to share without getting annoyed, to offer to help out more, to make a point to say thank you so that it is physically known that i am grateful, and to accept the things i cannot change.
