Feeling Ö Lost

I have to say it out loud

Monday, July 08, 2013      8 comments

I suck at relationships. They scare me. Iím sensitive by nature and also a little distrustful. Most women are flattered when men say theyíre beautiful; I am suspicious. Iím also not good at opening up and being vulnerable in general. Obvio... Read more

I rarely suffer from self-loathing or anything of the kind. Not that I donít think I have issues, mind you. They just donít generally manifest in negative self talk. Except this weekend. That ugly little voice was loud this weekend and stron... Read more

It's too easy to think of all the ways we've failed or not lived up to expectations (our own or others). So my SparkCoach challenge today is to blog about 3 accomplishments. The first one for me is pretty easy -- jogged 4 miles at the pa... Read more
