Seriously, there has been so many posts, statuses, updates, tweets, whatever about so-and-so isn't able to accomplish their goals, and how life sucks for so-and-so, or so-and-so can't do this, so-and-so can't do that, blah blah blah.
A lot of the problem I see in this, when I talk to the person about it, is that they are saying, life is keeping them down, people holding them back. They are blaming everyone else for their problems.
You are your life. Take the reins and lead yourself to where you want to go. You control your own life: how you view things, how you think about things, how you affect others. That's what I mean about life. Obviously, if you are living at home, you have to listen to your parents. But really, you are going to talk about how awful your life is because you've been grounded? It's your own fault for going against your parents. Be grateful you even have a family, dang it! Do you know how many family's are without a mother, a father, a sibling?
Another thing: Your life is no better or no worse than anyone else's. You have no idea what goes on inside that home, so you can't assume that the most popular girl in school doesn't go through her share of problems. And, you can't automatically just assume that the guy who always wears black and never talks to anyone is a depressed sociopath. He could have wonderful friends and laugh at the most random times, and tell perverted jokes with his friends.
If you are going to sit there and complain about your life to everyone and anyone and make your life out to be this big, terrible thing, you are only looking for attention and pity. You are waiting for the people who comment or talk to anyone to tell you how sorry they are because you love the attention you are getting through this.
Attention seekers: Get over yourselves. Quit asking for people to comment on your stuff. People will comment on your stuff if they like it, when they want to, if they feel like it. When people tell me to comment, or they are obviously phishing for attention, I will ignore you. I'm not going to give you a handout because you can't do something with yourself.
The whole point in this? If you want to be someone that succeeds in life, then do it. Be that person. Success doesn't equal popularity. Success is whatever you define it to be. For me, success would be to graduate college and get the job I want to have. If I don't get the job I want, it will be my own fault, not the bank that didn't hire me. And, I wouldn't just give up there. I'd either make a new goal, or just keep applying.
Don't ever give up. You can get there. Believe in yourself.
That's the main thing. If you can't believe in yourself, how can you expect anyone else to?
You are worth it. Please, keep your head held high and strive to be the best you can be; I know you are capable of great things.
