Non hai bisogno di motivazione. Non hai bisogno di essere invogliato ad agire. Non hai bisogno di leggere liste e post sul fatto che non stai facendo ancora abbastanza.

Du brauchst nicht mehr Motivation. Du musst nicht endlich mal in die Gänge kommen. Du musst nicht noch mehr Listen und Beiträge darüber lesen, dass Du nicht genug tust. Wir tun so, als müssten wir einfach nur genug Artikel und genug Zitate auf Pinterest lesen, damit sich der kleine Schalter...

I want you to know that nothing is wrong with you. I know, I know, this sounds cliche and trite and like I'm patting the top of your head while telling you all the things you want to hear. No, that's not where I'm coming from. I need you to...

My Life Without Vices Can Be Too Real

(10) Comments | Posted September 16, 2015 | 1:36 PM

I worry that I will never experience the kind of elation I experienced when I used to drink excessively, constantly between parties, healing hangovers by erasing them with another night out. I can still remember the feeling of the third whiskey/ginger warming up the bones in my body, turning my...
