I feel that I have a very boring life. I have very less friends because I am not a sociable person. I feel that my social life is in a mess because I can't mix very well with my friends as I can't act as the real me. I plan to choose a suitable date and time, then give myself a new start. I will buy new clothes, trim my hair to the hairstyle I want, be more sociable and be a confidence person. Would you like to start a new life? Do you feel that you do not like your life?

I am always in the process of re evaluating my life and seeing what I do and don't like about it and then changing it. I think there are always going to be things you are not 100% happy about and it's important you recognise these so you can make yourself happier. I think it's quite good to re invent yourself every now and then. It can give you that much needed confidence boost. Just don't put too much pressure on everything being ok after a certain date. Things like what you are doing will take time so it should be gradual. I hope it all works out well for you

You are right. We should slowly change some of our bad habits and instill new ones.

Yes, I want to start a new life. But what I mean is to start my own business, because the most important reason for changing my life is I want desperately to earn more money. I now work hard, very hard. But my boss won't give me much more money as a reward for my hard work. so I want to start my own business, by this way I can change my life, I hope everything will be better.

Hello, sdas86. I have to admit that my life is not perfect, but I'm really happy with the way I lead things to be. Sometimes I stop to think and realize I don't have many friends, but I do know a lot of people. Then, I think twice, and if I don't have too many friends is because I don't need that much. Actually, if my life ever gets boring, it is because I walked towards the path of boredom. But, at any given time, I can change everything. It is my life. Who else than me can control it? I can set my own goals and work towards achieving them, having fun while doing it. Or I can just take off some goals and feel less pressured. It is all a matter of equilibrium. Respectfully, Munhozmib.

Heya, its not that I dont like my life. I guess Im satisfied with it. It can be considered as 'boring' to some people and I think that I do lead a boring life. But the thing is, Im just used to it that I frankly dont mind living this life. At least you are acknowledging the fact that you are 'not a sociable person' and its good that you are going to do something about it A new look is very fitting to accomplish that 'new you' and your 'new life'.^_^ Im sure everything will turn out alright and I think those people who know you will have a pleasant surprise when they see how much you've changed for the better. Goodluck!

All of us leave the past behind, it's just up to us how much we want to repeat it. The saying that if you always do the same thing you are going to get the same results. So go ahead start your new life and if you don't like it you can start again. Blessings

I am facing a similar problem as am much of Introvert person and cannot mingle with people instantaneously. It takes me time to know people well and I start speaking to them naturally!! Okay, I am happy with my life and don't want to start a new life. Though, I want to make changes if there can be some, but its fine. There are a few things I don't want to replay!!

I think we all feel like that sometimes. I have changed my life several times. I feel like I've lived a million lives and none of them were for me. I'm ok with my life now. Time has settled me a little. Sometimes change is good but make sure your not running when you do it.Take care.

Ur rite man. Everyone in this world wants to change his/her life for the sake of good/bad. But one thing to note about is that before changing ur self u have to think about the negative things in urself and try to figure them out first. That is the reason everyone wants a change in his/her life. I hope I could think like u, and everyday I walk up fresh-minded...thinking about the past mistakes and learning from those mistakes. I must say that keeping track of ur daily life activities is one of the best ways to change ur life. Keep writing about ur daily routine in a diary. It will help u alot. I'm afraid I responded to this msg too late. But I hope it'll work for those who read.

I did something like that when I was younger. I was rather introverted and had few friends so I cut my hair, exchanged my glasses for contacts, and started acting like less of a nerd.

I think sometime to be able to start a new life is a good thing but sometime not really.Starting a new life might be good as we are able to reconstruct what we want and what is good for us and others but at the same time we are leaving behind all the memories we had in order to stay over new.It is good as we can built up ourselves in a positive way and leaving behind negative traits.

I feel like I just started over again because I just got divorced. My husband was verbally abusive and I am having to work on my self esteem. It seems to be getting better everyday but I still have bad days every once in a while. If you want to change something about your life then do it now before it's too late. Change your hairstyle or buy those new clothes. I have always been shy but I push myself to get out there whenever possible. Good luck and I hope you feel better.
