What do you want to see happen different in your life? How will you be able to achieve this? What are your goals or expectations of things to come? How will you deal with the normal stress?For me, I always want to stay one step ahead of my disorders. I want to keep the important people in my life close to me held together with love, respect, support and understanding. I want to be able to see past the misconception said by people and look for something that offers generousity. I strive to have more patience in gaining back the relationship with my Daughter. I will achieve these things by being patient. Not expecting to much at one time. Maybe if If offer my assistance to someone instead of looking for help all the time that will allow me to come across as the kind of person that people see as they would do anything to help you and they'd be willing to jump at the chance to help you out. Normal Day Stress. Sometimes that's a hard one for me. Again that's where I will have to balance the importance of my issues, set them aside for a second because overcome the normal day stress with a fresh solution not surrounded by agitated thought's.
The inner strength of serenity will extinguished the thoughts of misconception and unrealistic expectations and lead to a better life filled with hope and understanding. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

hi,i cant really set goals now except for small ones.my first goal is to get some relief from my problems.i want to have better relationships with the people close to me.i wanna be able to control my emotions.i really cant think tooo far ahead yet cause that will cause me to get anxious.i just take each day at a time whether good or bad.if its a bad day i wont flip out and lose all that ive learned or all the way ive come so far.i know living in the moment of being good or bad is helpful.
all i can say is i just need to improve my mental/emotional health.i want to preserve it.i want to make this a learning experience.cause i do believe we are never safe from our emotions.we will always be vulnerable but atleast you should have control.the difference is that people do get sad,mad,scared Etc,but it only last short time.someone like me or you can have these feeliongs for awhile.and sometimes it doesnt really go away and also it turns into alot more that it is.
i learned that writing things down is good.writing down your priorities and goals.also writing a journal.i also try to distinguish the good and bad.i tell myself what i have thats good and what is bad.but i be honest about the good and bad.i find that theres really not a whole lot of bad about me.i also look around my surounding and say to myself that im grateful for what i have.i look at things in my house and say im glad i have that lamp,or im glad i have a bed,or im glad to have food,TV,phone,internet Etc.then i remind myself to forgive.i keep doing this,sometimes its hard or sometimes its hard to believe or apply to yourself.but the more you do it the better skills and understanding you get.also the quicker you get to freedom.
im just glad that there is alot of info and help out there.what would you do if you lived before all this.you wouldnt know what to do you wouldnt have any understanding or help at all.im grateful to have hospitals and doctors.i think im very fortunate for the things i have.it could be alot worse.take care and see ya around (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

This is indeed a proven method where we can vent off our feelings. This way, we can share our thoughts with someone (at least for writing per say).
Regular personal diary writers generally feel better compared to the ones who keep their feelings with them in their mind and memory.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) "Try learning new skills and techniques to manage your Emotions, Keep reminding yourself of all the good things you have and how lucky you are". Nice thought there. Take the skills and knowledge and make them work for you. We are givin chances (or) challenges in life to better ourselves and it's up to us to succeed. Usually the stong and the ones that don't give up usually finds what there looking for. And these opportunitys are for everyone! The are the ones who are interested in a better change of their lifestyle.
Good luck to everyone!

I want to get my 'mojo' back. I want to be able to look through my portfolio with pride instead of shame. I want to be able to pick up a pen and think 'I CAN do this, I was made to do this, I AM talented and capable'. I want the guts and determination back, I want to be able to send off my work to any publisher with an open mail address, I want to be able to do so without the crippling fear of failure or rejection that has stopped me so far. I want to use what I have to make life better for the people I love, so that my mum can enjoy her retirement instead of worrying where the next bit of money will come from. I want to be able to look people in the eye. I want to know that if I ever had to go to a high-school reunion I would be able to look at the people around me as equals and say, 'I got there because I am good' instead of 'I got half-way there in spite of you, you sh*t'.
I want to be able to look in a mirror without feeling ashamed.

My short term goal is to beable to love myself, to be thankful for the people around me and things I have, and to love the time I have w/ my husband and children.
My long term goal is to beable to forgive my family and to move on and live a happy life.

Not expecting too much at one time and setting small goals added with reasonable expectations.

i do take your point to an extent
i prob would have been posting numbers myself this time last year but yeah, i guess youre right, numbers that apply to me are only important to me.
i do talk about them a good bit, but only to people who ask and who are interested
