  1. Don't ask dumb questions

    I question the same thing....I'm sure kittens everywhere are calling me the "Kitten slayer" while plotting my demise....Uh oh

    Yes, very nicely put

    Thats good that you dont resort to those kinds of bad habits to deal with stress They can only make things worse in the long run. And now that it is getting warmer outside, I should try to get out more as well. I spend aloooot of time sitting around when I should be out exercising, or just getting some fresh air. Thank you for sharing your perspective on things I often lose myself in the unhappy feelings instead of remembering that it is all temporary, so I end up dwelling on the stress

    Well said sister. Things we know we should do often gets buried under the emotions we feel, so we need other people to knock some sense into us from time to time. Funny how that works isn't it?
  5. Just dealing...

    You know, I have actually been told that I think to hard about trying to label everything. I don't even realize when I'm doing it half the time. I have also been told that I justify too much, rather than just letting it be. Everything you said is true, and it makes sense. It might take a while for me to get the hang of just going with the flow, but I've known for a very long time that I basically need to chill out lol it will be a welcome change of pace once I get it though. I tried shouting once, but I felt really silly afterwards lol I take that as another sign that I need to loosen up a bit more

    Thank you all sooo much for taking the time to give your thoughts. It is all very good advice that I will somehow try to put into practice. Even though I never went into specifics about why I'm feeling the way I am (some of which I am still trying to figure out myself), I feel better at least somewhat expressing myself. I dont deal with my emotions very well, and it has gotten to a point where I just shut down from others and myself completely when I have to deal with them. Its strange when you have no idea what sparks the things you feel, or how you can feel so many strong emotions at once without being able to pinpoint a certain reason. Maybe I'm rambling but that's what I do
  7. Just dealing...

    With all of the stress, doubt, remorse, and many other emotions I have been feeling lately, I find myself having trouble trying to cope and keep moving. I'm sure there have been countless other topics about this kind of thing, but I was wondering about how some of you deal with these kinds of pressures and icky emotions. Any advice is welcome

    I was actually wondering the same thing

    So I my confusion must be helping me huh? I guess I'm off to a great start!
  11. The Failure of 'Just Do IT'

    Wow, this really hit close to home with me. I have been feeling this same sense of failure in a way for as long as I can remember. I admittedly screw up alot of things. Even when I know how it should be done, I have trouble actually executing it. Many people have also told me that I am not trying and I need to work harder, but how is that possible when your mind and body literally feels like it just hit an invisible wall? You can see what needs to be done on the other side, but you cant reach it...I'm STILL trying to figure this one out :/ It has gotten to a point where I feel almost afraid to try things anymore, so I tend to give up sooner. Natural talent really does play a huge role in society these days. You either have it, or you dont. If your in the "dont" category, then society has no use for you...It's sad really
  12. Hello all :)

    Well as you can see, I'm new. I am honestly very confused on where I am going with Taoism, and I have no idea how to even begin with it. It seems kind of overwhelming when I have no one to teach me much about it, but something about Taoism speaks to me in a way that I cant ignore. With all of the happenings in my life, I feel as if I have no direction, yet Taoism feels like it will give me some kind of....meaning. I dont want to feel as if I am just wandering around aimlessly. I may be confused right now, but I am hoping that everything will become clear. Joining this place seemed like a good place to start So I am excited to learn from you all! Ok, I think I am done rambling
