I'm having problems with a negative attitude. It seems like my life has always been one catastrophe after an other and I've usually been able to be objective but lately I feel like the whole world is out to get me or something, I know it's not, I'm just so bitter. I just went through a really bad breakup with a guy I'm still crazy about, I didn't qualify for a car loan and I'm without transportation, I have 19 units in college and my teachers are breathing down my neck for "not fulfilling my potential" when I can barely get my homework done and my chores at home (still living with family). Needless to say, I'm not pleasant to be around and my friends are sick of me. I'm especially looking for an inspiring message about someone who's been through tons more than me and eventually had it work out for her/him. Or maybe just someone to tell me to shut up and deal with it. thanx.

Okay ...shut up and deal with it.

Not really. There are times in all our lives when it just seems like "way to much".

Was the car loan for a brand new car?
It's a drag to be turned down but remember they are going "by the numbers" and it isn't a personal reflection. There are other ways to get a vehicle....an older used model is cheaper by far. And check out MNAY different newspapers. I noticed a big difference between towns in car prices.

Fulfilling your potential is up to you.
As a teacher I know we really want to see our bright students do their very best. Take their concern as a sign of the good they see in you. go to one you trust and talk about all that's bugging you.

The guy---wash him outa your hair. If he can't appreciate you there is some great person who will.

Step back, do your best and reward yourself when YOU MAKE YOU HAPPY.

Live your life for you. I am of the Baptist faith and I know having a strong faith and prayer helps me a lot.

Things will change for you and you can be an activeator in that change.

good luck.

Well, let's see. Life sucks like that, but it wouldn't be fun if it were great all the time. Then great would lose its meaning and simply become "existing".

When I started college I still lived with my parents and it really grated on me because you kind of need that freedom to explore. Any way, I did leave after I let everything get all bottled up inside me and we had a huge fight. Then, I got into drugs, lost my best friend of 10 years, lived out of my car for 2 months, and basically hit rock bottom. And stayed there for a few more months and went on more drug binges and dropped out of college. I went back to college after I was diagnoed with a chronic illness that has no treatments available.

Life sucks, so you deal with it. What makes us unhappy is when we cling to everything around us, from old hurts inflicted on us to failures we have encoutered. So it happened, you move on because life moves on without you if you stay still.

there's a great book called "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor Frankl. You want a story, his life sucked. He was a Jewish psychologist in germany during WWII. He was taken to an internment camp and his life's work was destroyed, his wife was killed, and he starved for 4 years (they used him as a camp doctor but treated him like all the other victims). Yet, in the end he has no bitterness toward his captors. What a man.

Just put on a happy face!!!! Ugh, life does suck, and as long as we keep thinking like that it does indeed. We create what we think. I am in a transition that I knew was going to be difficult, I want to climb back into bed and stay, but I know I must eventually get out. I am currently expected to be a super star, with every one watching. I am so disorganized, with several new electronic devices that for the life of me can't get to work right, three new phone numbers to memorize, and I have no memory, heard its on sale cheap some where, wonder if the hard drive with accomadate? Need to get photo done right now, but still have pounds to loose, and sure don't want the picture of fat molly on billboards, but one foot in front of the other, and doing it. If I can so can you!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 Wa wa wa, and I wish I was 10 years younger, with energy, hmmmm battery pack?

thanx guys, I've been on one heck of a bitterness binge lately but I'm starting to feel a lot better. I really appreciate your words of encouragement.

Lannie, You too huh? I'm starting to feel better too, and I'll definitely read that book Cici, it might have to wait till after midterms, but I gain a lot from people like that. Have you ever read about Corrie Ten Boom? very similar story.

No, I'd like to look in to it, though. Is that the title or the author? Another great book is Abraham Maslow "Toward a Psychology of Being" (which I just read to write a midterm paper....augh!)

It has a lot of interesting points, though...especially the idea of how Americans always compare themselves with others obsessively. When really, what IS normal? there's no real clear cut definition!!
