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.
Trying to lose weight or cut your calorie intake but nothing is working? Keep decreasing how many calories you eat every day but you still bloat and feel less energy? Replacing some of your meals with snacks but still can't fit into your favorite pair of jeans?

Maybe it's not so much the amount of calories you are eating, but the kind of calories you eat. Maybe many know this and maybe many don't, but sometimes it's the more you eat that determines how much weight you will lose, and what kind of weight you will keep.

In a world of people who constantly want the next best thing, you find yourself slowly becoming them. I once told myself that I would never compare what I have now, to what I don't; but like many promises I've made to myself — I broke that rule a long time ago. It wasn't something that I tried to do. No one strives to never feel satisfied. In our human nature, it is coded in our desire DNA to always want to seek satisfaction. Whether it be physical, mental, financial, or social. We all strive to feel satisfied in ourselves, because at the end of the day... if you aren't happy with what you've done, what are you?
