I know thats what I should be doing but I don't feel like I can. As I read through them I could see that I do the opposite for the main of them, and I hate it.

They do apply, but putting them into practice will be very hard.

They are difficult to put into practise. But definitely worth it...:)

Yes, and they still do. I have bipolar disorder, and when I'm having a down, I force myself to sit and read them. Sometimes it feels impossible to follow them, but it isn't. Also helps that they've got my meds right aswell now, so there isn't much sign of it around anymore.

You must be so strong for getting through it. i feel really weak for feeling like this, but knowing that other people can do it is something to work towards i suppose. Thanks.

=D> I have just registered and briefly read some of your comments about self worth etc. Funny, I go through life thinking everyone is strong and confident and wonder why the hell can I not be like that. Now I see that there are lots of us feeling rubbish and worthless and unloved. I thought it was just me who always has to please and feels so rubbish if I get disapproval.... what a shame we cant all go and live on a dessert island together, leave all the confident people to get on with it!!
I go through the day with a confident smile on my face, its natural to smile at passers by, or in the shops, at work. As far as i'm concerned a smile is so nice to see and boosts you up for the day, and its free!
But if one little thing happens to make me unhappy I cannot just shrug it off like some would it takes me to the depths of despair and I wonder what the hell is wrong with me and why do people hate me so much. All I ever want to do is make people happy and be surrounded by happy people. I hate the violence and hatred in this world and cant understand why we all cannot just get along. Makes me wonder what its all about and why are we here.

Sorry I got carried away and you probably dont need to hear all this. I love the forum and hope that we can all help each other even if only in a small way.
