not implying that I am regarded as a good example, just dont think people should take advice from an abject failure
between everyone on the boards we can give you good advice if you need it. PO is off in south america but there isn't a problem she won't be able to help a little bit xxx
Being judged well by a sick world is no barometer of health.
but NO, you had to be special :@
does that mean we SHOULD?
I've had many insightful conversations with you, you are a success to me and many others no doubt about it <3
creaks, I'm not sure anyone has ever....forget it, now's not the time
and you can trust my opinion x
more people like you and the world would be a much better (if also much more verbose) place
Far too many people only take advice from people who succeed. You're never going to understand the difference between success and a failure by only listening to one side of the story.
Anyway, a wise man once said "no man who has friends can ever call himself a failure". It might have been Dame Barbara Cartland.
You'll here plenty of successful people saying how it's about their hard work or because they wanted it more but realistically there are people who've failed who've worked hard and wanted things equally. Plus people, as a general rule, lack self-awareness. I'd say most successful people (especially ones who've not failed before) have no real idea why they were the ones to actually succeed...
just cos ive said something doesnt invalidate it.....I just mean, having my attitude is not a good idea to getting on or even surviving, that is what I meant.
I find it hard giving out 'advice' on here anyway. Like anyone knows what they're doing, really. It's nice to read your stories/ about your experiences anyway. they probs help people without actually directly being life advice.
don't sweat it - doesn't really matter does it?
i too feel liek a colossal failure, so you can take some comfort from that
Now things are pretty much awesome. It's amazing how quickly it can change...
I feel sort of similar … turns out I just wasn’t doing any of the things I wanted to do/cared about. So I started doing them, every day, and six months down the line things look very different.
Pushed at about a hundred doors, only about two opened, that was two more than have happened in the previous twenty years.
But thanks for the warning.
