Baby 1: And you, you believe in life after birth?
Baby 2: Absolutely. It’s obvious that life after birth exist. We are here to become stronger and to get ready for Whatever awaits us next.
Baby 1: This is absurd. There is nothing after birth! What would life look like outside the…
I already know these things…. You don’t have to reemphasize them EVERYDAY and make me feel bad.
some people just have no nunchi….
I’ve changed and learned more about myself within the past school year. Some good, some bad. It’s scary and interesting to see how much a person can change within such a short period of time.
- I’ve become more blunt. I don’t know if it’s a good thing or a bad thing, but now i tend to say more what’s on my mind instead of holding it back. If someone got me mad i use to just ignore them and keep it all in. Now i approach the person and tell them why i’m upset and try to solve the problem.
- I realized i tend to do better in smaller settings than with big groups. When i’m with a big group of people i don’t talk much and usually just listen. It’s because I just don’t have anything to say! & the fact that i think what others have to say is more interesting than what i have to say probably plays a role.
- writing relieves my stress! One thing i learned is that whenever i’m in a bad mood or feeling lonely writing calms me down. a lot. I love going to cafes by myself and just sitting there for hours listening to christian music and writing.
- I’ve become more selfish. This is one thing I don’t like how i’ve changed. Before coming to college and the first couple of months of college I use to genuinely care about others. I still do, but not to the extent i use to. I also noticed that when I talk I tend to talk about myself more. I’m thankful I caught myself though. So now i can listen more and talk less about myself.
- dependent. I never realized how dependent i was of my parents. In college ever single decision i had to make (big or small) I called my parents and asked for their opinion. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing but it’s not necessarily a good thing either. I’m a college student. an adult. I should be able to make decisions by myself. i think i rely on my parents a lot because i really respect their decisions and knowledge. They’ve also helped me make every major decision in my life so i guess it’s also sort of a habit.
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”
It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!
