What is wrong with me these days?
    #4164949 - 05/12/05 02:57 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I think Karma works in weird ways. Pretty much the constant theme of the last few months has been failure and recieving blunt criticism about myself. I've been fired from two jobs, been informed I am socialy akward, that I'm nieve and out of touch, an aggressive and inconsiderate conversationalist, suck with the ladies (I already knew this) that unless I change in a major way I will end up a wreck, old and alone, and on several occasions that unless I change in a major way I have no future in my career. Out of nowhere I got hit by barrages of this, it all happened at once and I keep hearing the same things.

I don't know what it is but lately I've been nothing but failing and having people around to tell me about it. It's always sincere like "You're a good/smart kid so I'm telling you straight up..." I can't understand why now all of a sudden so much is wrong with me.

I know I have to face all this up, and it will be hard, but I want to know why? Is it just LA, or did I miss a shitload of stuff growing up and now everybody has to break the news to me?

I guess I need to change but I am just so overwhelmed. I feel that alone may make it impossible.

I'm not a moron, I put alot of effort and energt into my work and I try very hard to be a kind and compassionate person, but it all seems in vein. None of that seems to matter.

Now I'm thinking about alot of my freinds from college and how well they would fit into this situation. Probobly not well. I think some of us are just like animals that could never survive in the wild, and I just made the mistake of thinking that I could.

My knowledge of LA is that it supports a certain mold of person, and fromwhat I've come to know its the type of person that is far more concerned about image than actualities.

Really you gotta find something that you care about, and it will help melt the negetivity away, or at least the emotion that comes with the present negetivity.

For instance, Im highly socially awkward, and the fact that im a college kid with no interest in being wasted everyweekend continues to prevent friendships from developing. But I found a babysitting job that really gives me the peace of mind when all is said and done

ask yourself
are YOU happy with yourself.
If not, what do YOU want to strive to be based on your compassion, and if you feel you have acheived look for your happpieness through that

I'd distance myself from people who just want to intentionally detereorate my self-esteem. Those people sound like jerks who want you to be a cookie-cutter person.

Like others said, you don't fit the mold. Neither do I where I am. A change of scenery is the best option I've found

when feeling overwhelmed some people find taking things one step at a time works for them: just worrying about 'what do i have to do now?' and don't think about the future too much, just today, just right now.

no one can control the world and what happens. you can only control your end of the bargain. you can only control what you're doing. make sure you're doing the right thing on your end, the best you know how, that's all anybody can do.

things will work out for you sometimes and wont work out for you other times. dont beat yourself up over the times that dont. there's nothing you can do to never fail at something. it happens to everybody, really. give up control over those times. giving up control can be really liberating.

You sound like you need to move to GA. Where everyone is a redneck and southern hospitality flowing like wine.

I guess it's just alot of rude awakenings. I never know who to listen to because some people say "You're the problem, you need to change" and others say "It's just your situation, don't pay any mind". Sometimes it's so hard to deal with the world as an open minded person because you are confronted with so many contradicting perspectives.

I think I've been letting this intimidate me and get me down, which will only make things worse. I need to assert my own style, and not be surprised if some people just don't get it. Thanks guys.
