I know that this is the "male survivors" thread that is supposed to deal with recovery issues in the broad sense. But this is how CSA has effected ME. It's made me the ultimate underachiever, (aka loser) and if I don't get that job offer, that opinion of myself can never change.

Yes nobs I wrote a short and sweet Thank You note.

Well, you won't get any argument from me! I can remember gas for 25 cents a gallon and postage stamps for 4 cents. My best friend in college had a brother who decided against college and trained as a mason/bricklayer instead. Both brothers did very well!

But you do have that one possibility, right? Why not focus your enrgies and attention on that for the time being? It may work out that they want a follow-up interview, for example.

Just a thought.

Much love,
Larry

Wow, Hauser, it looks like you really do have something good coming. It will be hard for you to believe when it actually comes through, but it will be real. Hang with it, man!

It's been 4 days and she has not called. The guy that forwarded my resume to her has not responded to my email. I think he's mad at me for fucking up and being late. I don't feel good about this. Jesus.

stop blaming yourself over little mistakes
you wrote down the wrong time
so what?
if they're so closed-minded as to deny you a position based on a simple, honest mistake then it's their own problem

It was one of the few chances I had to escape this life of under achievement and I blew it. It's like..............it's like hell I don't know.

I don't understand me.

what underachievement?
from your post it sounds like you're trying your very hardest to achieve your lifetime dream
you've worked doggedly at this job search

and you didn't blow it. remember, you still don't know for SURE that they don't want you for the job

and even if they don't, it doesn't make you an underachiever...
underachievers don't go above and beyond the call of duty to find the one job they like best even when they're met with rejection

you've worked hard at this!
