I Don't Know Whether There's A Point For Me - January 25th 2009, 03:06 PM

Well sometimes I get upset over the smallest thing but then it'll make me feel worse and I'll get really depressed about things.
So many times I've wanted to reach for the pills but I've never done it because I wanted to achieve my goals in life, I wanted to get married, have kids, have a good career. Now though, I have no clue where I'm going in life. I don't even know if I want to get married or have kids anymore. I'm afraid that there's nothing to stop me from reaching for the tablets anymore. I don't really know what I'm asking for on here but I just needed to write this down.

That's the great - and confusing - thing about life. Goals change. Circumstances change. Opportunities change. But goals are always there. Opportunities are always there. And circumstances just change how you go about achieving your goals and making the most of opportunities. People often feel like their lives are going down a one-way, dead end street, and that they're going to be stuck at the end with no way back out. But life isn't like that. There are no one-way dead end streets. You can always turn around or find a different route. You have plenty of time to discover where you want to go and how you want to get there. Sometimes you end up having to go through bad neighborhoods and places you don't want to be, but there's always a way out of those places. It's kind of a cheesy metaphor but I think it fits nicely. You're young. You don't need to be focusing on everything you may ever want and how you're going to get it. Set more realistic, short term goals...and make sure you're having fun while trying to achieve them! The bigger goals will show up naturally as you get older, and you'll be ready then to decide if you want to pursue them and how.

Aš tave myliu, Nanny. I'm carrying your love with me.

Each day of our lives is different. you never know what could happen tomorrow that will make you want to carry on with life, or change your life.If you want it enough, i'm sure you'll achive your goals in life with a little determination and perseverance. Don't give up! Life is worth more than that, and it could take a turn for the better any time. You're unsure of your goals in life now, but sit for a moment and really think about them. do you have plans for a career? have something that you really enjoy? well think about really excelling and doing something that's entertaining. Don't focus on the negative. Remember your life is what you make it, and can be how you want it to be.

- and I wanna leave -
- and I wanna stay -
- And I'm so confused -
- So hard to choose between the pleasure and the pain -
