March 4 at 2:07 PMI don't want to say that I'm not truly "happy". I just have extreme high anxiety and I dwell on the could haves/would haves. Weight is another issue I have. I'm not confident in my own skin and I always wish something was different. How would you address an issue like this?
I think I could be happier if I could connect better with my husband. What is something I could do to become closer with him without smothering him? We just had our second baby in January, and I feel like we have a small wedge that has started coming between us.

I'd be happier if I could learn to budget the small amount of money I get twice a month thru cash assistance. I now have bills to pay and I'm supporting my two children. I pay my bills and then buy things for my kids that they need sometimes its just toys (they dont REALLY need them)but I get them anyway to keep them happy and then there's not really anything left for me to buy something for myself...i'd like to be able to buy clothes or something that I like just to put a smile on my face...and maybe feel better a/b myself.
I would be "happier" if I could get family budget started and could manage to loose some weight. What is the best way to go about this? I have tried multiple times to get a budget started but it never sticks. Something always comes up and throws me off track. And as far as loosing weight I have been some what trying since I had my last child 5 yrs ago and nothing has worked.
