Believe it or not, I used to a lot more mentally weak than I am now. I had to do a lot of self-reflection over the years (and even over the past year, over the past couple of months, etc) over my general reaction to certain scenarios in the past and I've come to the conclusion that I need to better myself mentally in order to see any real positive change in my life.

It's a steep mountain to climb for sure, but I'm ready to make that journey.

I wanted to get better mentally, but kind of failed, and then I think I just kind of grew up and now I'm calmer than ever. Give it a few more years and I'll be downright dull :D

Mentally I was nowhere to be found at the age 6-16. It is a whole lot better, but still not ideally where I want it to be. If bad things happen I tend to easily fall apart :(

    I don't have so much stress from work, I just feel like my energy gets drained as soon as I step foot in there. :/

    Sammeee! This is mostly because I tend to overthink situations a lot and whenever something bad happens I think of worst case scenarios and it just drains my motivation and energy. It sucks. :c

    I'm going to be honest: The older I get, the most I dread my 30s.

    This is more because I feel like my 20s are meant to "enjoy adulthood", y'know? Like I'm still kind of a kid, but you're basically kind of a kid adult, if that makes any sense whatsoever. @[email protected] Like you enjoy the independence and freedom that you have until you hit 30.

    And then 30s is when you have to be all Serious Adult and settling into careers and make Super Important life decisions and stuff... ugh.

    You definitely can think too much. Sometimes it's better to just take a deep breath and force yourself to smile and browse imgur for a while c:

    Hm, maybe. But I'll always be who I am, and that's not a very serious adult kind of person haha. I can't even see myself buying a house or something like that yet. Maybe one day I'll reach that point, but I doubt I'll ever really feel as adult as anybody who is older than I am.

      If I think on any particular thing for a long time, it either makes me feel upset or forgetful when time flies by.

      Well...whatever works for you, I guess? Personally, I'd go mad with worry if I didn't analyse every little thing. It's the little things that trip you up and break something.

        The power of thought is amazing.
        "I can't do it" = You probably won't be able to do it.
        "I'm gonna do it!" =You still might not achieve your goal, but your chances of achieving it go up drastically.

        I've failed a lot, I would know :D

        I've realized recently that doubting myself all the time is really only going to set me back in the long run, so I've made an attempt to better my own mindset by only looking forward, only looking to the past for lessons and tools to use for the future.

        It's definitely not easy; as someone with awful depression my thoughts do get in the way, but I've also gotten really tired of that as well and have been doing a lot of mental training (read: meditation) in the hopes of ridding a lot of my negative thoughts.
