Oh, Sean... It is so disheartening to read this post, and the next one. I am very, very sorry that you and your girlfriend broke up, but please remember that for every door that closes another one opens. It really is true - just give it time.
I understand you sometimes feeling that you can't imagine anything but failure, Sean, but it is so difficult for me to see someone with a kind, caring heart like yours (not to mention your present and potential talents) could really feel this way. I wish you could see success in your future, too, because sitting here on the outside looking in I can see so many possibilities for you! Sometimes you can't see the end of your nose for looking, I say!
Sean, you have to reach out and grab for the stars or you will only reach the bottom branches of the trees! Don't be afraid to reach up there, hun, because even though you may not grasp onto that star, you may just reach the top of the mountain that is holding you back. I promise you, Sean, your future is not one of failure, but of wonderful things. You just have to want it bad enough to fight for it and refuse to let the down times knock you to the ground.
Every single time something horrible happens in my life (and believe me, I had a 4 or so year run where EVERYTHING was horrendous!) I just refuse to let it get me down and work harder at making someone else's life a little happier. In fact, it just might be a good idea for you to consider 2 or 3 little things that you could do to brighten someone else's day every time that you are feeling down. You would be amazed at how good that will make you feel.
You are so young, Sean, and you have a lifetime of experiences awaiting you. Without the bad we never experience the good to it's fullest. Try to find a silver lining on each and every one of your clouds.
Sean, if there is something specific that you need help with, please I'm me if you can't express it here and I will try to help. I suspect that there is something far deeper than breaking off with your girlfriend at work here. If you want to share, I will listen and try to help, or refer you to someone else who can.
Thanks for listening, Sean. I care about you... And I only care about the truly important things in my life.
