I want my online store to be successful, I started just before lockdown and am barely getting any sales. I want to hopefully become successful enough so I can buy my own house and a cute dog. My aim is to get there by time I'm 30, I'm currently 24.

It never seems like it at the time I know, but depression is a temporary state. There are come fairly simple, non-pharmaceutical, techniques that help. For me, it's doing something that helps someone else.

I want to be a published Writer. I'm already a writer but most of my work hasn't seen the light of day yet. My sister is helping me work on one of my stories which is a major boon because I have a small issue with staying focused on just one thing at a time. I handed out one of my pieces, just a couple of sample chapters to get critiqued on it. I wanted brutal honesty, what I got was a fan club which made me finally realize that I might just be good at this writing stuff. I did get some constructive criticism as well, which I adored, and has helped.

Sadly my dream is one that will never happen. I would love to create a Homeless Hub. Somewhere that has all the services needed in one place. One big issue with homelessness is that it is often a very complicates issue and the people need numerous services to get back on their feet but the services aren’t always easily accessible.

The homeless hub would have most if not all the services needed in one place. There would be five small gated communities 1. Rehab 2. Families 3. Women 4. Men and 5. Youths. The residents will help with cleaning and maintaining their own areas as well as the communal areas in their block. The communal blocks would include kitchen, dining, laundry, shower blocks and a small entertaining space with things like TV, deck of cards, some books etc. There will also be a roster where residents will cook dinner for the other residents in their block.

The services included are rehab, youth centre, access to GP and dentist through outsourcing, job networking and training services, education courses, financial councelling, family connections and reunions, psychology and councelling services, connections to disability services, computer room for studying, job search etc. Access to hairdresser/barber through outsourcing, help in finding permanent accommodation, get them in the community to volunteer and gain skills, domestic violence services, access to library books through outsourcing, organise forms and payments through centrelink, outsourcing pet care like kennel/cattery etc. A large donation area with clothes, shoes, household items, food etc for the residents to choose some items to help them get back on their feet.

what type of work do you do? if you have any experience with renewable energy you will easily find work. note of warning though, the government changed the elegibility criteria for emmigrating so you will need a fairly well paid job for you and your spouse if you have one.

My biggest dream... is to be able to move out of this awful row-house and into a detached structure, in a quiet (maybe rural) area. I deeply wish to finally experience peace & quiet, as well as a feeling of privacy and agency. I have no other ambitions in life other than to have peace of mind and no longer be suffering from constant fight-or-flight anxiety due to being surrounded by obnoxious, selfish, and ignorant people and their noise/smoke/litter/etc.

I should NEVER have bought this horrible house. I’ve been trapped here, financially, since 2005, due to being traumatized into disability by my former employers. I want to stop hating my mere existence. I’d probably be able to work on creative projects again if I wasn’t constantly in a state of hyper-vigilance and distraction.

Shared surfaces and densely populated living spaces are fundamentally inhumane. Dense population spaces create stress and make people hostile. Noise studies show this. Even if you think you’re fine, you really might not be.

I've often felt that the Universe shackled us with depression so we'd fit in with normal people. If we didn't have depression not only would we rule the world, we'd be freaking unstoppable. So I feel you. Dysthymia here. For, like, forever. I can't remember the last time I felt truly happy without that feeling that "the other shoe is going to drop". Can't I just enjoy a half-second of joy before you destroy it? <3 <3 <3 You are not alone.

Writing a book and maybe getting it published. I came up with the main characters ages ago as a kid, they continued to develop in my mind. I wrote a story with them as a kid and I want to include the story in my book as a prologue.

I've started on the book a couple of times, life gets in the way. Studies, work, family. It's not my biggest dream (that came true when I became a mom) but a remarkable dream anyway.
