"Do not give up... I feel the same with my life (except the girlfriend part... I can't seem to find one of those) but it's like I've heard "It's always darkest before the dawn." Even if you feel like you are lying to…"

"For me, fill-in-the-blank Anonymous was the first step, and a worthy one.  There (at least in CoDA, ACA, and the like -- I'd think AA, NA, &c., are more focused on the substance), you can talk about anything, get it out there, w/o…"

"Severe depression and discouragement, been there. Spent most of my life there, and I still visit more often than I would like. When your "bucket list" turns into a "fuck it list", I know the feeling. You have owned your feelings,…"

Will replied to Steven Carpenter's discussion Accepting defeat
"When thoughts sort of like that dominated my life (not "I am not a man" but "life is pointless, I can't win, I will always be alone" -- close enough), I didn't think these things because I wanted sympathy, compliments,…"

Will replied to Steven Carpenter's discussion Accepting defeat
"And here I was thinking this was going to be a thread about the usefulness of failure:  L'Engle's theology of failure; corporate gurus' dictum that if you never fail, you're not taking enough risks; the principle that every…"

"Don't worry Steven. Just because you live on the street does not necessarily mean you are broke or a virgin. Barry Badrinath lived on the street and he wasn't either of those. You could follow in his footsteps. "

Todd Serveto replied to Steven Carpenter's discussion Accepting defeat
"Steven, I've felt that way myself at different times, and I suppose we all have.  You have to understand that growth under pressure builds character and becomes a part of who you are.  The latest challenge to overcome (for me) was the…"

Michael D. Denny replied to Steven Carpenter's discussion Accepting defeat
"Don't give up.   Here is the deal. It does not matter if you fail 50 times. You only have to succeed once to change your life.   In his book "Why we want you to be rich, too" Donald Trump writes about how everyone…"

Kit the Odd replied to Steven Carpenter's discussion Accepting defeat
"Focus on process and progress, not achievement and distance still to go. Also, keep in mind that sometimes it is about "hold[ing] on when there is nothing in you except the will which says ... Hold On.""

Jack Bauer replied to Steven Carpenter's discussion Accepting defeat
"Quit wallowing.  Its unbecoming. I agree with Chuck.  You're fishing for compliments.  You give literally no information about your problems, so there's no advice to give.  If you say you're not good enough, who…"

Brad Williams replied to Steven Carpenter's discussion Accepting defeat
"There will be some form of helpline in your area where you should be able to get a medical opinion freely.  If not, set a doctor's appointment and open your heart to him/her.  You may have a problem that is at base just a physical…"

"738 words, if anyone was curious - well written as always, Titus. I think It's not so much sex appeal as it is primal human judgement based on appearance. Not just the women Men give the benefit of the doubt to taller, more athletic, better…"
