    Oh boi do I do so much of that haha. It's fine no worries ;) I think o e of the big bad things, but it can be used for good too, is that we as human beings procrastinate very often on so many things really and it can drive your brain wild really :)

    I didn't go to school, I was educated at home. It was very good with lots of adventures and such haha. When I was young I wanted to work as a nurse for the NHS, but when I got older I grew out of that, I then wanted to be a vet. Always jobs were I could care/nurture for creatures or people. Ik...

    I have spoken to my parents about it. Initially my father was supportive of whatever I wanted to do, but my mother guilt trips me a lot if I say I don't want to do farming or such. They have always said to me I didn't have to farm if I didn't want to, but when I say I don't want to it's almost a...

    We have to accept ourselves, that is perhaps the hardest thing to do

    Well it appears that one week was just a one off. Everything went back to as before, sure my brother and I still do some work as a team. But past week has been hell... I injured myself twice, once in the head, the other in the ankle and my ankles gotten only slightly better, because I've hardly...

    OK, so it appears all I needed to do was to force myself into motivation. I took a break from an addiction I have, currently going through cold turkey, and did something with my life. Farming is going better, I have rekindled my love of cooking and housework again. So many interests have come...

    farmers dating

    Depends on how bad a woman's monthlies are. From personal experience it's a toss up between feeling physically exhausted and like somebodies dragging out your insides and just mild cramps. Each period can vary a lot. First 2 days are all that plus not wanting to eat much and wanting to vomit all...

    We know where the end goal of the business is to be, but it's just the getting there really which is the drag. We are not far away tho

    It's the fact that well. OK firstly we did have a few unofficial meetings, as it were, to arrange timings of going out and such and we were all in agreement. It started off OK, but then it slipped back as I don't know really, it just went back to what it was before. It's a lack of drive I think...

    I'm not intolerant to gluten tbh. But I think ik where the points lie in terms of diet and that's vitamins, I eat some veg but hardly any fruit and mostly snack on sugary stuff and carbs really. It's the sugar that does it for me. Alcohol wise past couple nights I've drunk a half litre of hot...

    All in all not the best tbh... My diet is a thing where I've been hardly eating that much. When I have its been not the best of nutrition wise based really. I have gone through a depressed point recently which led to that and I am eating better now, but there are times I will hardly eat that...

    Thanks for the replies guys. If I am really honest with myself there are days I despise farming, but overall it is a part of me and something I want to do. I wish things were different, but I guess it's in our hands to make that so. Had a haunting dream last night that I could no longer farm...

    I might, tbh it's something I have been mulling over for a while. If we had a better farm with better facilities than we have then sure, it would feel better. We'll see what summer brings anyway I guess. Parents always say we have to work we with what we have, which I guess is true, but it's so...

    I've come to the conclusion that I'm not going to carry on with farming that much longer I don't think. I can't hack this life I have now. My brother he works on farm, both do, but their timings are all off even tho we have tried and tried to get them to do what needs to be done at the times we...

    Case study: Is she scared of getting hurt again?

    Personally I would say she has issues and stay way away from her. All I have been reading sends red flags off left right and centre. It feels like she does an she doesn't want a relationship. Either way she sounds like a user. Stay well clear boi, you don't need that in your life. Hope you're...
