I always find interest in how people choose their IG handles. I’ve always stuck with one that somewhat resonated my name or my nickname, but I’m thirty one now and it was really getting boring, to the point that I was feeling like it would possibly cause a nervous breakdown if didn’t get it right.
I’ve been moving from one state to another since graduating college in 2012: Vermont, Pennsylvania, NYC, and landed back home in Connecticut after ending a five year relationship (I dodged a bullet; he got engaged a month after we ended).
I am sorry. You have said this time and time again and you feel the meaning is becoming hazy. If you're like me, you might have found yourself trying too hard to make others happy for you, or you do everything you can to cheer up a friendly face, but you leave your needs and feelings un-attended. But, when it gets to the point where you can't even face yourself in the mirror or even make eye contact with the people you see everyday, it can be even more stressful on you. My recommendation is to take this time to say that you're sorry. Not to anyone in particular, but yourself.
I would be writing this based on my experiences, those around me, and just some which I have come to realise would eventually arrive or not arrive, but stands the test of time.

There are times in our lives when we feel the need to start over. Whether we move to a different location, try a new hairstyle or wardrobe, learn a new skillset or dance moves, whatever it is, starting anew brings excitement and anticipation of what is to come. We become focused when it's something we are interest in and desire to do. Our best self begins to shine through when we are on our chosen path and pursuing our dreams and goals!
In many parts of the world, self-help tends to get a bad rap for being filled with hokey advice that doesn't work or as a gateway to cult membership. That's often why many people avoid the self-help industry, but this really shouldn't be the case.
Whether you're someone with bipolar disorder or someone who just wants to find a new way to brighten their day, inspirational self-improvement podcasts could be just the thing for you.
If there's one thing that the internet has made possible, it's the rapid proliferation of bad ideas. We've all seen what happens when bad ideas take hold and spread, and you'd think we'd learn from it, but clearly, many of us always end up falling for the same bad info.
