I know that I can be my worst enemy at times.  I know I am too hard on myself, too cruel and struggle to be truly happy with my lot.  There’s changes I need to make but there are also things I’ve learnt to accept about this never ending roller coaster called life. These include: Life isn’t fair. Failure is not always a bad thing, it can teach us so much. Success may not always be the best thing for you. Beware of fair weather friends. Nobody really knows what goes on behind closed doors. Don’t continually say yes to… View Post

I not sure whether I am alone with this or not but I am one of these people who likes my own company.  I really need to have some time each day on my own.  It relaxes and calms me.  I find I get quite overwhelmed if I don’t have this time on my own.  I’d like to think it isn’t me being anti social but more taking care of my personal happiness and well being.
