With the events of the last year or so, America has seemingly been boiled down to just two sides that absolutely hate each other. There is no room to work together or get anything done as long as there is a two party system and our founding fathers knew this when they formed America. Yet what happened to their ideals and hopes for this country? The entire scheme has been reduced to two completely separate sides that get at each others' throats whenever possible over whatever possible. It's no wonder anything can be accomplished in this nation when the only people in power (no matter who is president) don’t actually represent the public. This system has been divided for so long that every single person that was in the middle can only vote for the person they ever so slightly disagree with less.
My driving motivations and how I’m trying to change my life are much more complicated than I had originally expected. Right about the time that I quit smoking the thought was that I would simply attempt to look on the positive side of things and continue about my life. Soon thereafter, I found that neither one of those things was as simple as I made them out to be. I had to find something to do to take away my stress, where I once used smoking for that purpose. The withdrawals were actually not even the worst part, as I found out through the first few months of wanting a smoke every single day. Quitting cold turkey was the only way for me, but I found that wanting to smoke every day put me even more on edge than the stress that was building up for lack of an outlet.
