Putting on the act

“I’m honestly so tired. Trying to keep a positive attitude all the time is a little exhausting. I feel like I’m performing for someone who isn’t even there.” — March 29, 2017

Resenting the universe

“Things were so much easier before I learned about the Law of Attraction — especially when I applied it to finding love. I was getting angry at myself for wanting it so bad, angry at the universe and God for not delivering my wish immediately.” — June 25, 2017

A unique kind of fear

“It just feels like if I say or think anything bad, the universe will immediately curse me for not staying all happy-happy sunshine 24/7. That’s not what it should be. But it still freaks me out.” — August 5, 2018

Rekindling the friendship

“No, I don’t feel like I have control over my life but I don’t feel anxious about that. I have to surrender to the flow. It’s only a matter of time until something happens for me.” — July 6, 2020
