    Are you contented financially?

    I am content and not content at the same time right now. I am content because up until last year I had never had a job before. Last November I got a minimum wage seasonal job that lasted for 2 months. I was happy with the pay even though it was minimum wage because it was nice making my own...

    Higher Education

    I think that a higher education is extremely important in the world today. I think that a higher education is valuable because education changes the way people think. You think in broader terms, whereas many people with lower-level educations (who haven't finished high school) think more in...

    Are You A Victim of Analysis Paralysis?

    I agree completely with that statement. I have done this often in my life. I analyze a situation to the point where I do more analyzing than doing. I bought my website 2 years ago but I only started working on it this year because I was busy with school. Now that I've started the site I haven't...

    Online Infidelity

    I think that online infidelity is just as bad as in-person infidelity. If a partner is looking to flirt and connect with people in inappropriate ways on the internet then that person probably has the urge to also do this in person. I think that this would be the first step to physically cheating...

    why reading?

    I absolutely love reading. I don't read physical books much anymore because I'm on the computer more often now. I miss the feel of having a physical book in my hand. There's something about the experience that I enjoy more than sitting in front of a computer screen reading. It's easier on the...

    Is it better to plan your child's life before they're born or allow them to choose their destiny?

    I am not a parent, but I'm a child of a parent lol. I would allow them to choose their own path. I think that it is important to plan for their future in terms of saving up for college and such. I do not believe that you should choose their career for them though. When/if I have children I will...

    Ever had problems with getting along?

    That's a tough situation to be in. I live in an apartment with 5 other family members and it can be very frustrating sometimes. I have an aunt who steals and talks about people in the house. I have an uncle (the husband of that aunt) who refuses to get a job and has a million different excuses...

    Hard To Say I Am Sorry?

    I agree with this. I think what makes it hard for me to say I'm sorry sometimes is the fear that the other person will not admit their wrong. Sometimes you are able to see both sides of the story. You can see where you made a mistake and where the other person did as well, but I've experienced...

    Can you really learn to live with disappointment?

    I agree with all of the above statements. I've dealt with disappointment badly in the past. I remember how horrible I felt after my first interview. I let myself feel worthless and I was extremely disappointed with myself because my nervousness messed up my interview for a job I really had. As...

    How Do You Deal With Interview Anxiety?

    I had to go to two interviews this week and that got me wondering about how people deal with nervousness before an interview. While some people exude confidence, others get nervousness that starts to show physically. Some symptoms may include dry throat, red face, and...

    Why People Don't Succeed?

    I agree with both of you. I don't think failure to succeed is just about people not realizing the difficulty of an endeavor and becoming to lazy to do the work it takes to succeed, although that is the case for some people. I think there are plenty of hardworking people out there who can do the...

    What inspires you to be positive?

    I am thankful that I have people in my life who inspire me to be positive. My cousin inspires me a lot. I tend to over think a lot of things and this holds me back. I make a big deal of things that I shouldn't because I'm a perfectionist sometimes. My cousin tells me to just go for things rather...

    Who Here Procrastinates A Lot?

    I am also guilty of this. I did this a lot in college when it came to papers. I would start writing them two days before they are due, and sometimes the day before. I always ended up getting A's during the last 3 years of college, but I always felt guilty that it could have been a better paper...

    48 percent of Americans fear another Great Depression

    I am thankful that I have such a hardworking and frugal mother because she has money saved up so that we would be able to survive. We probably wouldn't be able to have luxuries that we normally do, but I think we could do alright. Of course that's considering that we would be able to get our...

    Do we use entertainment to avoid difficult situations?

    I use entertainment to avoid difficult situations all of the time. I don't think it's such a bad thing though. I guess it depends on the situation. If you got into an argument with someone or someone said something to upset you then it helps you keep your mind off of that person and relax. By...

    Do you ever find yourself a victim of your personal habits?

    I think we are all victims of our personal habits, whether we realize it or not. I've always had a habit of keeping to myself and of being really shy, ever since I was little. I've never grown out of it and now that I've reached the point where I have to enter the real world and interact with...

    What is Personal Development?

    I want to better myself. I've always tried to do well at school and have succeeded in graduating from college with a double major. It's something I'm proud of, but I want to improve myself even more as a person because book smarts is not everything. There are skills that I need to develop such...

    In Love With A Wrong Person

    I'm very sorry to hear about all of the sad experiences here. I agree with this. I think that many people stay with people who are wrong for them for these reasons. Some people also stay with them because they feel they can change the person for the better, and that love can change the person...

    Letting go of pent-up feelings

    I think that the best way to release these pent-up feelings is to try to get to the source of what is causing them. If you can understand why you are feeling a certain way then you can take the steps needed to try to fix the problem. You also have to ask yourself if you are justified in feeling...
