You know what, Elizabeth? I spent so much of my life feeling like I was a big, flakey failure because I start things and stop things from time to time but you know what? I tried a lot of things!
Don’t let anyone make you feel like a failure because you used a Bujo for a year and decided it wasn’t for you. That’s awesome. You’re taking ownership of your life and I think that’s an important aspect to life. An admirable quality.
Because of you, I started a Bullet Journal and I love it so much. I feel like I finally found my thing. So even if it didn’t last forever for you, it made a convert out of me. <3

I started a bullet journal after listening to you guys talk about it. I was all in for the first six months or so, but I’m struggling now. I love it for all the reasons you mentioned, Elizabeth, but now, I feel like I want to be spending the time I was spending CREATING the layouts actually DOING the things I was planning on the pages. 🙂 I’m trying to decide if I want to re-up my bujo game or not. Interesting that you guys are talking about it when I’ve been thinking a lot about it for the last few weeks.

Hi guys, thanks for the help with my girlfriend’s mom! It’s been a couple months since I wrote in, and in the meantime I’ve pretty much just tried to be as unresponsive (yet polite) as possible, haha. I’ve found the issue is more that when I mention to my girlfriend that I’ve spoken with her mom, it can bring up some real bummer feelings for her and can easily ruin a day. This being the case, I just straight up never mention it anymore if I have a conversation with the mom, no matter how brief or whatever. I feel guilty about that for sure, but I do think it’s better and less complicated? I also definitely don’t give out any information I know my gf would be uncomfortable with, and keep it super super light/surface level. Fortunately it’s been happening less and less. Oh well. As an avid listener of this show, I know so many mother’s/mother-in-laws are legit crazy….but it just always blows my mind how bad a relationship between a parent and child can be 🙁
