    How do you take care of yourself when others need your care

    I think that's amazing that you were so self-sacrifing for your friend! I hope they appreciate you! While I think what you did is extremely honorable it is so important to make sure you take care of yourself. I'd recommend setting timers on your phone so that you continue to take your...

    Dealing with Adult Acne

    Thank you so much for your well-thought out response! Unfortunately for me, I have the opposite problem (I tend to run dry rather than oily), but I think that's a great idea to go to an aesthetician. I will look into that. As well as looking into the dairy thing (I honestly had not that of...

    Help with Social Media/Phone Addiction

    My fiancé is addicted to his phone. He jokes about it, but he knows he has a problem with it. I find it to be entirely disappointing because when we first started dating he never brought out his phone and I remember thinking how nice it was that this guy in his 20s could go a couple hours...

    Me! I absolutely LOVE To Kill a Mockingbird and have read it numerous times (and watched the movie because hellooooo Gregory Peck). I also wanted to name my corgi, Scout, because I love the character so much. So, when Go Set a Watchman came out, I wanted to read it and I purchased it...

    Learning Photography

    Hi All, I currently work in communications and would say I've lightly dabbled in photography on the side. As I think about wanting to do more freelance work and what that might look like, I'm thinking about going the photography route (whether it's just more of a hardcore hobby or something I...

    Quitting full-time job and freelancing for full-time income

    It's so nice knowing I'm not alone in this! I've been having the same thoughts and am wanting to transition into full-time freelancing eventually. Good luck to you!

    Advice for kicking a sugar habit

    While I agree with many others on here that it's best to avoid processed sugars and move towards more natural sugars, I know how difficult that can be. If you're really wanting something that is more like candy or ice cream, I'd suggest looking into "healthier" alternatives. For example, I've...
