Have you ever written about how to stop yourself from you ruining your own life? Or how to turn it around mid-ruin? Because I’m almost 25, ruining my life, and I’ve gotten to the point of where I kind of hope that someone hits me with their car.

If you have an article about this, you can just say “yes” and I’ll go looking. Until then, I’m going to just eat everything that is bread or contains bread until I feel better.

    My whole blog is about how I keep myself from stepping in front of a car. Really. Every day I think about it.

    Search these terms on the search box on my blog sidebar:
    Hate myself
    Suicide
    Failure
    Also read the post that comes up with the search term:
    Twentysomething lost

    Your life will turn out fine. Really. You are at the hardest age in your whole life.

    I hope this helps.

    I received that email many years ago. I answered it right away. I did not hear anything back from the writer… until tonight. Here’s what she wrote:

    I just came across our email exchange from 2012. Thank you for this. I’m 32 now, I’m doing so much better, and I wish I could express how much I needed to read this way back then.

    love this! I remember being 25 and being coached by you and feeling so much pressure to make the right choices! in hindsight, everything mellows out as time goes on.
