So, my lovely peeps, whenever you are feeling down in the dumps read the things I put on here. It is kind of like counseling BUT WAAAAAAYYYY better and more real. I am no certified psychologist, but I am planning to minor in Psychology. Enjoy - I hope this makes your life more real. I can't guarantee it will be better, but I will find you the truth.
Category 1 - For Being Organized/Having a Better Life Style
1. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WHAT YOU HAVE. As a person in my dream quoted: "If there's a hole in the desert, make a pool." This is different from "If life gives you lemons, make lemonade", because that is saying: "IF LIFE STINKS - TOO BAD. TRICK YOURSELF INTO THINKING IT'S GOOD". The thing that annoys me is when people do NOT take advantage of what they have because they are "lazy". For example (this has happened to me many times), when I am reading someone's writing piece in school, I notice a few grammar mistakes. I say: "Hey man, I think you might want to fix these few grammar things for a better grade." They are like: "I don't care." And they don't fix it. And they get an F. And they don't care. They just go home and watch Netflix and go on social media. It wouldn't have been that hard to fix! Another example: if you have coupons, GO TO THE STORE AND USE THEM. THEY ARE THERE TO MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER AND THEY DON'T REQUIRE ANY MAJOR EFFORT. Even if it does require some effort to have an advantage, do it anyway because the outcome will be worth it! If your life isn't great, you need to put in the effort to make it great! I'll bet you that you have SO many things to take advantage of! For you artists, go to the library and get a book! It's free and will not take HOURS AND HOURS OF HARD LABOR. Go to an art museum! Talk to your art teacher! YOU CAN
DO THINGS TO MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER!
Category 2 - For Having More Self-Worth/Self-Confidence
1. When you feel like no one will listen to you - Most "cool" people don't care a drop for people like us. But, that's what I love about dA. You will most likely NOT meet anyone like that, and you can connect with people like you. All I can say is... be your own kind of cool. You just have to wait a while before people GROW UP and recognize it. You, someday, will have an AMAZING life full of excitement and happiness, while they will be sad. Just get through these next few years, and think about how terrible their lives will be (yikes that sounds so mean, but it's true. I have anger issues but I am fine with that. I always tell the truth, no matter how dark... ack I'm talking to myself now...)
Category 3 - For Dealing With Anxiety Issues and Attention Issues Such as OCD, ADHD, ADD, etc. (I am a sufferer of Anxiety/OCD, but nothing else on this list.)
Category 4 - For Dealing With Strong Emotions/Anger Issues/Depression
THIS WILL ALWAYS BE A WIP. If you would like me to give advice for anything else, please note me about it, or comment it.
