    You ever look at the things you work really hard at.....if it be a relationship, making better of yourself, achieving a sense of direction, becoming a more happy and complete person etc.

    Or your looking around to make sure your heading in the right direction in your life. Then you realize your lost!!

    You check to see if you are making it closer to what you want in life, then you notice your farther away then you were ever before, further away then when you first started.


    Or even worst you realize that all your strengths are really your weakness'.


    I think I will be missing for awhile.

    Ohhhhh I've been there. I am kinda there. I was just looking through my high school yearbook (well my girlfriends, I didn't buy one because I hated high school :quoteunquote:) But it was a bummer. There were so many squandered relationships with friends, potential girlfriends, activities, etc. All because I was afraid to be myself.

    And now in college I feel I'm screwing up again, except this time, what I'm doing with my life. I should be a music major. I'm whole heartedly a music guy, I'm half assed a photo guy. :( :bawl:



    Man, I guess life does suck. Get better Odie.

    I've always thought that life is like a sea and it's your job to steer the boat where you want it to go - going with the currents or negotiating against the winds, and sometimes finding out that it's a different port where you want to head to..

    G'luck, matey.
     
  11. i hate getting them in my soup too:p
     
  12. one lump or two? :p

  13. Life would be easier if we could have a practice run or two before shooting for score, eh? At least you are taking the effort to examine your life and path. It can be an unsettling feeling, but hopefully you will find your mental footing again quickly. Hopefully, it isn't really as bad as it may seem at the moment...

    Fare well on your quest. TB will still be here (with the same subjects and "use search!" replies as today!) when you return.

    Why am I seeing the old Garfield "Punt...Splutt!" comic strips in my mind while typing this though... :p

    Yes, at least on most counts! To be honest, I'm still working on rectifying some of them too, that's just it, life is DIY!

    Take care and good luck Odie, you were there for me once before when I needed some advice - feel free to PM me! Not sure of what I can do, but I'll do what I can!:)

    All the time Odie. Seems every time I think Im relitivly close to getting what I want in life or where I wanna be in life, something comes along and kicks me 100 miles back from the original starting point.

    As for all my strengths being weakness' some are, some arent. The ones that are a weakness I still consider a strength because it keeps me from getting taking advantage of by others.

    I don't know if this is encouraging but, you don't have to be "on" 100% of the time. That's what ups and downs are. The downs don't have to be blue either.


    Good Luck. :bassist:

    Hey Buddy, take care of yourself. F everybody else until you get yourself on track. Sometimes it seems like everything I do is to please somebody else. Sometimes I feel like I just want to go live in a tent out in the woods for a year. I guess the batteries would wear down and I would be screwed. Good luck man. Don't keep ***t to yourself, you got friends here.
