Lily04 Posted March 20, 2007 Share Posted March 20, 2007 Hi guys, I know I likely posted something like this before, but I really mean it this time.. because of something my friend said to me that really struck home. At first I was mad at him... I said he was rude, and I still am somewhat upset at him actually..but he's right (I suppose he could have just been a bit more sensitive about the way he said it.) I was complaining about how I can't find guys I like, wondering if I have too high standards as per usual, and he straight-out said "Lily... honestly you're not the 'best' out there either, so there's probably something wrong with you." (along those lines.) I suppose I was offended at that, because in my mind, I am somewhat... a catch? But he said "honestly, I know girls who are being asked out by attractive successful men 8x/day, so why are you having trouble then?" (essentially.) First off, considering my environment, that's technicaly not even possible, but then you have to consider WHY I'm NOT in that environment then... because I haven't made it there yet. Why is that? I dismissed it before as because I'm too young, but that's not the case anymore as people my age have graduated and are already in successful careers. The reason is because there is something wrong. I wasn't really prepared to fully acknowledge that before, but it's true.. the reason why I'm not at that stage (when I am capable of it) is because I'm not reaching my objectives... I'm not doing what is necessary to get there. I'm not pushing myself like I did in 2nd year of university... which was my best year academically. I somehow slumped... and I feel really bad for that. I can't create excuses anymore.. seriously. So I'm asking you to also help be my support as I do this...I really want to change my ways and honestly give it my best. I only have one month left now to go before school is done, so I need to give it my all... I hope people here will also help me to do that. Thanks so much. Lily Link to comment
