Pros and Cons List

I think the first issue I wrote a pros and cons list for was when I couldn't decide if
I should break up with my boyfriend. When I wrote the pros and cons list the an-
swer was simple. The cons list was longer so there was no doubt...I had to break
up with him. A pros and cons list can be used for almost any situation that you're 
undecided about.

Some situations you can use a pros and cons list for:
  • Should I switch jobs?
  • Should I get a pet?
  • Should I move?
  • Should I get a tattoo?
  • Should I go to college?
  • Should I get married?
  • Should I color my hair?

If It's Wrong Don't Do It

You know that feeling when you let someone talk you into something that you know
is wrong, but you do it anyway? The next time you get that feeling decide that you
won't let someone hurt you anymore by encouraging you to make a bad decision.
Don't ever believe that you have to or that you should put up with a person that
doesn't respect you.

When someone is trying to talk you into something that is wrong and you do it any-
way or you keep hanging around somebody that is bringing you down instead of
lifting you up, you are telling the other person that... "I will let you hurt me as long
as you want to." This type of person will continue to hurt you as long as you keep
associating with him/her.

There is no reason to put up with a person that doesn't respect you. Find a way to
dissociate yourself from someone like this. Find a positive person or even a group
of people to affiliate with. Don't ever feel like there isn't any hope. There is always
someone out there willing to help you, but you have to let someone know that you
need help.

Self-Esteem Poem

Secure in yourself and your abilities
Every day is seen as an opportunity
Leading yourself and others in the right direction
Filling your life with positive people

Engaging in actions that lift you up
Staying away from activities that bring you down
Tear down your walls of fear
Even if you're worried have a smile on your face
Even if you're angry be nice to others
Make today a positive day
