I feel like people have this impression that I’m a perfect Mormon girl— that to hang out with me, they need to walk on eggshells and watch what they do or say. I appreciated it when I lived in Connecticut, but it still made me uncomfortable.
I never thought it’d be like this in UT, but it is. People act like they don’t swear or make crude jokes or do questionable things on weekends when they’re around me. I’m sure an optimist would see this as a blessing— through what I portray, they try to be better people. It’s temporary, though.
And the truth is that all I want is to know who THEY are… flaws and all, cos I have them too.
I have a past that isn’t so perfect, a present that I’m still working on and a future that’s looking bright!
Everyday I strive to be more like my Savior, but still contain enough Sheila so that people know who I am, my interests, my imperfections.
Example, I’m addicted to energy drinks and through them I suffer from insomnia but it’s something I’m working on! I let my close friends know and they HELP me keep my mind on the right track.
If you have a friend that you think is just P E R F E C T, they’re not! Don’t feel inferior and always, ALWAYS be yourself, regardless. Let your imperfections show, and together we can work on the ones you no longer want! (:
I am absolutely in no place to judge your decisions, your beliefs, what you do in your spare time. Heavenly Father is in charge of that. I’m just here to be a friend! (: So, be my friend, tell me your secrets, be yourself cos I’ll show you love through it all.
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is but able to experience supreme happiness. What is happiness? It is a feeling of inner peace and satisfaction. It is usually experienced when there are no worries, fears or obsessing thoughts and this usually happens, when we do something we love to do or when we get, gain or achieve something that we value. If somebody says good about us we feel great and if somebody says bad about us our day is ruined. Why we are dependent on external force to be happy? Why we let our happiness be determined by outer forces. We ourselves should take charge of our happiness and well-being of our mental-state. Can it be done? Yes training our mind for it. Many people make the mistake of believing that they don’t deserve happiness and accept their unhappy state as their destiny. The truth of the matter is that happiness, like anything else in life, needs to be nurtured.
