There are in no particular order or scale of difficulty.

1) Quit smoking
2) Take up exercise
3) Admit to myself that I am disabled
4) Convince myself that number 3 didn't matter as much as I thought it did.
5) Get over my fear of spiders.

And 6), stop giving my opinions even when I know they are correct, even when they come from evidence, research or credible personal experiences. There are so many people now that will support people like Denise Minger, these people who are barely qualified or have no qualification in the area they are trying to debunk and will not stand up to criticism. The people who support the paleo diet even though it makes no sense, even when meat supporting doctors and nutritionists will say that a diet like that isn't healthy.. The sad thing is, to me, I've been trying to help people, my friends, family and so on. However it's becoming harder and harder when people will jump on these bandwagons, actively trying to cover up facts because it's fashionable or it's too hard to swallow.

Point being.. I don't think I will be giving my opinions, advice (from what I know to be true) and support openly here anymore. I will be going through things with the friends I make here, I'll give a bit of chatter here and there and if someone wants my help I will give it, in private. I am just so tired of trying, sorry. I've met so many lovely and great people here and elsewhere but they aren't outweighing the others for me.

You can give advise and try and help people but they have to really WANT that advise.
If they don't really want your advise then don't offer it, That's what I've learnt. and if someone says that you're wrong just ignore them, so long as you're happy then it doesn't really matter what other people think, and if what other people think makes you unhappy only then should you think/worry about it.

I didn't want to go into long, long detail but I generally say "This is what I know works" and I'm very skeptical on what I take in, it has to be researched, scrutinized and tested by people in the field, Doctors, researchers, sports scientists/trainers and so on, not what someone put on the internet.

I don't throw out advise to people, well I'm not sure what to call it, I just post something online and if people like it then good. However, these days people are so adamant to prove people wrong and will jump on any bandwagon that I just now think "Yea whatever. I'll carry on with what I'm doing, you do what you're doing, we'll see who's better off"
