I told my story with a question in mind, hoping for feedback on how others would deal with these issues. I got that, and found much more by spending some time reading through these forums. While I disagree with what Steve said in his blog, he did a great thing here by creating this forum. It is great because it is a collaboration of wisdom from various life experiences combined with many educational backgrounds. The sum of that is much greater than the opinion of one person.
I have to agree somewhat with Steve though. Just look at your handle... "broken"... you are settleing into your world of pain.
I'm not just spouting rubbish here, I've been through hell many many times. My entire life from age 16-23 was pretty much complete ****/hell every day with many many bouts of considered suicide, crying, hating everything, asking "Why me?", lonliness, etc...
Now I love my life so much EVERY damn DAY I would not DARE waste one second of this ****ing gold!
I did that ... myself. I pulled myself out of that **** and made it into the great thing it is now.
So yeah, you can do these amazing things for yourself.
Just don't expect it to be easy, or happen over night.
I'd suggest taking up Asmoday's offer, he's a level-headed guy who knows his stuff.
