    No amount of effort on my end will ever be good enough, while some people get what they want without even trying.

      I'm sure there is many people in between that need to put in extra effort but succeed in the end, but that's not me.

    Met with my newest client tonight. An absolutely beautiful Great Dane!!! And with the sweetest and gentlest temperament. But enormous!

    Finally, after months of setbacks, I was able to acquire an acoustic guitar. I haven't played one in a while, so calluses need to reform.

    Got my hours changed at my job so the commute is less of a pain and I get the same number of hours with an extra day off a week.

      The intelligence has arrived because you have a clear head. Well done.

    Spoke up again and the co-supervisor got upset.

      No, I just wanted to speak my mind and not bottle my emotions up.

      Just remember that the trick to winning is to not get angry or upset. Being rational is always good. If the supervisor did something unacceptable or treated you badly, maybe he or she just have to be a little upset and deal with that.

      Just don't over do it. But at least you are feeling more empowered.

      I am going to severely humiliate myself by approaching woman and falling flat on my face, i will either show them or tell them about and then they will understand l have no chance, and i never have you hear about it again.

    I spoke back at the co-supervisor after feeling like she was purposefully singling me out.

      It bothers me that you used the word "at" (spoke back at) rather than "to." At implies no interaction, as if you grant the other person no validity.

      So glad to hear this. You cleared out some concerns and you feel better. Sometimes we don't get the results but we do feel better. This is a big step.

      This will lead you to having other conversations and you holding your ground. It will get easier. Just walking a thin line of not getting fired.

      I do drink it from time to time. But anxiety and making phone calls and everything being too fast paced stresses me out

    It’s 5:30 in the morning and I need to sleep but I’m overwhelmed and crying. There’s so much evil in the world. It causes me great distress.

      Octopus hugs to you & @cornman (or if preferred a polite bow). We do a fair bit of news fasting for mental health reasons, but you've got a Ukrainian friend and that situation is just so horrible, and not the only horrible situation in the world. Gollum needs to fall into the lava lake on Mt Doom, as should Sauron actually.

      Sadly, so very true. A major reason I've stopped watching the news on a regular basis.

    Little dog on the bed next to me, dreaming and twitching paws. Sometimes a yip or a yelp. I'm reading a book about parasites.
