Struggling with Separation

I’m really struggling with my marriage separation right now. My wife gave me an ultimatum to stop drinking or else we would be separated and I chose alcohol. I moved out of state and soon after wised up, and quit drinking and started going to AA. I pleaded with my wife to give me another chance, but now she says she needs to heal and focus on herself. I’m trying to give her space...

I’m now 23 and my life is beautiful. I have dealt with most of my issues. But one that won’t leave me alone...

Yesterday I fell asleep at 8pm without doing my homework and woke up at 8am. I still felt exhausted, and my mom let me stay home because she thought I...

Confidence Issues, Social Insecurity and Split Personality

10 years ago when I was 21, I moved countries. I started studying here and I learned the language more or less, I even managed to write a thesis required for the diploma. Somewhere in between I have realized that I developed some sort of split personality. Somehow my native personality doesn’t translate in to my ‘English’ personality.

I Can’t Talk to Others Because I Talk to Myself

Ever since I was young I talked to myself. But recently it’s been taking a turn for the worse. I can no longer communicate with the people around me. In my class, with my friends and even with my family. When I’m alone or I’m not interested in a conversation I’ll simply begin talking to myself. I’ve come up with other people in my head. A new group of friends, a romantic relationship, the...

How Can I Make Sure I Do Not Accidentally Say the Wrong Name?

In my current relationship, there are a lot of issues stemming from my past marriage, issues that cause my wife insecure feelings and feelings of being ‘the second one’. About a year ago I referred to our cat by the wrong name — calling it the name of my ex wife’s cat. This hurt my wife, because to her it felt like the cat, and she herself, was interchangeable. I heard that it hurt...
