There are better ways to release emotions than to harm yourself or others. Please promise me you’ll find one that works for you!
She didn’t die when she left her home…maybe her spirit was slowing dying, but who are you to say that she did a long time ago? Who am I to say that she didn’t? What about her husband who always believed in her, stayed by her side no matter what, and your mom who was always happy to see her? It’s not like your grandma was in a coma, or brain dead. Even so, maybe she still wanted to live. Even if she gave up on herself, why give up on her? We should have just held our tongues & weep our regrets.
We can only keep her memory alive now by appreciating everything she has done & what we may have taken for granted.

Been checking my weight the past few days & surprisingly gained 15-20 lbs (finally), was waiting for that to happen for the past few months. I wonder if it’s because I haven’t been exercising/working-out as much as I used to for just 1-2 months, and ‘cause I actually moved back in with my parents.
Note: One of my fitness instructors said not to worry too much about gaining, or losing weight; don’t confuse your body, find a balance & tone what you have.
Keep in mind to get plenty of sleep (which I still have trouble doing), always drink water & make/plan a healthy diet, and routine.
Also, there’s a difference between a work-out that will help you lose weight, and a work-out that helps you gain weight with muscle mass; must find the appropriate means to accomplish what you seek.
I used to just weigh 120-125ish for a couple of years, but after moving out of my parents, unintentionally changing my diet, getting less sleep & with a hectic school & work-out schedule, as well as not finding enough time to eat as much as I used to…always on-the-go for almost a year now, I ended up losing 10-15 lbs when I wanted to gain weight/muscle when I got back into cardio & started weight training.
The struggle to be fit & stay fit.
The struggle to be mentally & emotionally resilient.
Not getting sufficient amount of sleep, nor having a sufficient & efficient diet to help build muscle.
Plan accordingly & take it one step at a time!
