doxie Posted June 28, 2008 Share Posted June 28, 2008 First, I've been a long time lurker of this forum. My girlfriend of 8yrs had broken up with me, and started dating another guy in Feb 2008. She was the love of my life, someone who understood me (I thought at the time). I had become so depressed and in pain I was borderline suicidal (ex: If a car hit me, that would be ok, etc.). I sought out therapy for my pain since I was totally incapable of fuctioning from getting up in the morning, to working, eating, or anything else. It helped me a little. What really got me going and to hope again was watching a youtube clip of Apple CEO Steve Jobs. A brief background for those who dont know Steve Jobs, he was kicked out of the company he founded (Apple), and walked away humiliated. He spent sometime pissed off, then eventually healed, and continued to do what he loved (building great products). He eventually found his way back to Apple, and is now 10x greater then he was originally. He doesn't really touch on love, or relationships except briefly, but the key point after watching this clip is to realize that things happen for a reason, and stay strong and dont settle for anything less then what you deserve, you will connect the dots in time and understand why. There are more important points he covers, but I dont wanna spoil it all for you guys. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I have. It really has lifted me to a far happier place I can't seem to post urls here. So go to youtube and type in "Steve Jobs" its his 2005 Stanford Commencement Address. Link to comment
