This is how I feel... how can this be - my only lifes work will be to succeed at failing. and in it will be the misery... but it's not even my own... it's everyone around me ITS THEIR MISERY and it brings to me so much aching and pain... and once again I have failed... but insomuch i have succeeded - succeeded at failing \:\(

In my writing experience the best films always have what I like to call a dramatic premise. For instance, Romeo and Juliet, the dramatic premise is love will conquer even death. The way Shakespeare proved this premise? In the end the star crossed lovers would rather love in death than live without one another. Another movie with such a dramatic premise-Misery. The premise "Misery Loves Company". If you want joy in the room where misery is. Bring it w/u. I find that prayer and meditation wherever you find your source be it God, Buddha, or Self. Carl Jung said "If you don't go w/in go w/out." Be the love you seek and you will attract those who stand in love and if you are the only love in the room. You never know the good that a simple smile will do... Mother Theresa

midnight51,

My experience is that failure is a self-fulfilling prophecy. If we go into something expecting defeat, we are that much less likely to have the emotional resources we need to see us through to success.

Much love,
Larry

midnight,

I understand your feelings. I have failed at lots of things in my life.

I can tell you that therapist support will be mch help to you. You low self esteem and constant spiraling down to the sad and painful feelings stem from lots of triggers in our life.

T helped me to be brave and more self confident so that I started to feel more at ease with my own position around other people.

So T would be a good help.

Alexey

Anybody out there know how to post questions to the forum very interested in posting one myself. Is it the email post icon. If so can someone explain how it is used? I'm not very internet savvy. But I've got a post that I really want to share...

Hi Onthenet,

Regarding posting, go to the discussion board and choose the forum that you want to post in.

When that forum opens up about half way down the screen there is an icon that says, New Topic......click on that and you should be good to go.

Good luck and hope this helps you.
