Bonjour to everyone and I must say I love you!

3 years, 11 months ago

I really can’t believe this is happening. I found this site earlier today by complete coincidence when i needed it the most.

I am 18 and just finishing high school. These past couple of months have been very hard for me, with adjusting to many changes in my life, and with these changes (good and bad) I have began to wonder more about my existence, future and life more than ever before. Being a high school student, I am unable to properly channel these emotions and thoughts with others without seeming too serious (i am not taken seriously due to my age.)

Today was one of the worse days, where I was just in a horrible mood, i couldn’t stand my peers and I just felt as if I were trapped in my life, rather than living it. However, in an attempt to distract myself from this chaos, I went onto stumbleupon and the first page was an article from HE on the 50 tips to life. I was overjoyed at this development and had to search deeper into the HE community….so here I am! So thank you all. I really don’t know what miracle sent me that link but I’m so glad that I’m here now. =]

Welcome Taillieu! Glad to have you in the mix! I’m happy that you have ventured into deeper and more introspective arenas of thought. Only good can come of it if you keep at it, and stay positive while doing so. Much love!

Worry is the fear of how you will feel emotionally or physically when a particular situation goes south. Fear is just negative power of imagination. It’s not real.
