  1. BL

    These are all GREAT goals. Some thoughts about……. #3) Don’t rush it. By doing so, you’re just fueling an insecurity. You have a whole life in front of you. 6) This is the most important goal! Do whatever you can to stop this practice. There are people out there who would be devastated if they knew the pain that was causing you to do this. I understand that pain. I hope you can reach within yourself to find another outlet for that pain. Be fair to yourself and talk to a professional. 7) Great! Remember, there are many, many people out there who want you to be happy. If you look for the good in people, great things will happen, and those people will make you feel happy about yourself. So many people want to make you happy… just have to let them in rather than push them away. 11) Great! This is SO important. You get what you give in life. 17) Again, great!! Opening yourself up to people says that you trust them. While you have every reason in the world not to trust people, there are many good people out there that you can trust. Believe in them and they will believe in you. 22) Yes!! When you make other people feel good, they will do the same in return, and that will build your self-confidence. 23) Yes!! When you live behind a wall, it makes people uncomfortable because they feel like you are angry with them…..for no reason. 24) This is important!! You don’t always need people around, or their approval, to feel good about yourself. 28) Yes!!! Helping another person or animal will make you feel satisfied about yourself. Do it!! 30) Yes!! Show people the real you. You don’t need to dye your hair for people to accept you. 31) Oh, no. Think twice about this one. See previous comment. 36) Ha ha, that’s funny.37) Write letters to the people who are important and will always be there in your life. 38) This is one of the most important goals. You have every reason to be angry in life. If you have to judge somebody, judge them positively. Seeing the good in other people will help you see the good in yourself. The kindness you show to other people will come back to you. Remember, you get what you give. 41) Fantastic. 42) Yes! You get what you give.
