Hiya guys :wave::wave:

There is no "live chat" tonight on TheMix so feel free to use this thread as support group chat!!

To keep it a safe place to chat please keep to the usual chat guidlines - http://www.themix.org.uk/about-us/chat-guidelines

And remember if you need more support 1-2-1 advisors chats are open 5pm-11pm - http://www.themix.org.uk/get-support/speak-to-our-advisors

So to kick off the chat we will have an opening round ;)

"Do you have any new year resolutions? If yes, what are they. If no, why not?

    My answer to opening round: I don't have ay resolutions because i'm not very good at sticking to them. Although i'd like to be a bit more organized :chin::chin:

    i have a few things i'd like to do this year.
    1. stop hurting myself.
    2. write a poem every day.
    3. fall in love with myself instead of trying to make everyone else fall in love with me.
    4. volunteer for a charity.


    I love you :heart::d:p

    It's natural to feel difficult. Did you take any flowers? x

    Not this time. I don't often take flowers, we have a few sets of fake ones and like on her birthday we take real ones or special occasions. :heart:

    I often wish I could go back in time and change all the mistakes I made. The memories haunt me, the regrets are always with me. I just feel like I try and move on but I can't. Am I always going to be this way? :(
