Life is a quagmire?
Posted 5/23/10
Ever felt stuck or hindered from what you want to do or who you want to be? How do you cope when those around you squash your aspirations and intrapersonal goals? Do you get mad at yourself for holding back and putting your life on a stand still?

When your caught in a bog what methods do you take to release yourself? I'm sure not everybody has no regrets about themselves and just wanna break out and let loose.

If so what's stopping you? Do you second guess yourself all the time or are you always fearful of criticism or is it unshakable remorse or nerves? To be the best human you can be what would you need to overcome? If you know what's keeping you from being your ultimate self and are aware of how to absolve it, would you stay at quarter empty or fill your cup to its brim?

Please overlook the guru talk.

I need to overcome my insatiable twitchy nerves and fear of criticism. There I said it. I need to truly and in a display of bold temerity accept I'm a human with an array of follies just like anybody else, these are just mine for better or worse.

gigaty gagaty goo?

I know how you feel. I am scared of getting things wrong so I barely answer unless I know i am 100% right. My life sucks since I failed a lot of my test in the past . My answers I do are always fine but I ask my friends (yes I cheated, don't we all :P) and turns out my answer was right in the first place thus getting the wrong answer.

Yeah I love Family Guy too. That's why I purposefully chose this title. Our friendly neighborhood perv Glenn Quagmire's surname also means http://www.thefreedictionary.com/quagmire. I bet not everyone knew that or it never crossed their mind.

I feel the energy flowing. Were on a roll people. Keep my post alive at any cost. Up, up and away! Don't let it be a Meg Griffin.

haha your metaphor is pretty funny. ^ o ^ Well life is full of surprise, even though most of the surprises would not be very pleasant. We could tried to turn bad event into a learning experience, so we could minimized our regrets as psychology professor have suggested to my classmates and me. When you are cheating on a test, you are cheating your self, which I mean you are not learning the material. The whole purpose of tests would be analyzing how much information of the students have learned in their classes. People who could go to school could feel privilege for they have a chance to learn, and other people in the third world country could not even go to school if they want to. I have done my share of messing up my grades, and I am trying to change myself to do better in school. I hope to graduate from my college with an art history degree, because I love to learn about every culture from all over the world through art. ^ o ^ My marketing professor have said that failure would be the path to success, and practice does not make perfect; it makes it permanent. Don't be worry about failure, instead think of ways to improve yourself. I have extremely low confidence about my intelligent, and frankly I do not think that I am very smart. I do not like stereotypes of how Chinese are smart and good a math, because they would give a lot pressure and I would feel like I could not ask questions in class. I do not like how people would automatically think I am smart, because of my appearance. Maybe I have no self confidence in my education, because I am always being compared with my sisters and cousins. They would all be better than me, and I have heard it many times that why can't you be like ____. Well I have to go to two school as a little kid, and I do not have time to join any sports team and ask for help in school. Even though I love to join sport teams and the science club, I do not have enough time. With all the negative side of my childhood, and I would not change my childhood, because I have a lot fun going to both English and Chinese school. I am so happy that my parents have made me go to Chinese school, because I love learning. I have been a good and bad student, for now I am striving to be a good student.

Hmph, thought I was the only one who found the definition of quagmire. Anywho, I guess fear, fear of failing, depression is my biggest foe. I get a dose of each everyday it seems, but fear being the bigger dilemma of it all. I don't take risks or do much anymore. And being afraid to fail is not as bad to me since no one is perfect & etc. I just don't like messing up & starting over sometimes when I should be doing my best in certain activities & events. I won't go into detail about my depression, it makes me sad just thinking about it.

I need to stop being so soft spoken. Whenever I want to add something in a discussion I say it, but nobody even acknowledges me. I repeat it once more and yet nobody turns or even makes a comment. Am I really THAT anti-social?

Anyways... Right now I keep trying. I speak loud and clear, but I get the same result. Oh well. x3

Lol I knew what quagmire meant.

Anyway, I know how you feel, I feel my parents have held me down on my goals and ambitions, and haven't raised me properly. I know u guys are probably thinking that I'm a spoiled child when I say my parents didn't treat me right, but I have my reasons on that belief. Because my parents didn't instill discipline in me at a younger age, I'm really lazy and one of the worst procrastinators I know.
This is why I am considering joining the Marines I could sit here on my ass failing college complaining how I grew bad habits as a kid, or I can stand up and do something, create new roads in my life, more opportunities, while obtaining the discipline that I severely need.

Not to mention they do give you some $ and chicks dig it

Early this year, I had those thoughts, too. I was helping out a lot of my friends that get depressed ( I like helping out people) and giving
them tips and to stay happy in life. I thought to myself, "Hold on, I'm telling them to do all this, but I myself don't even do it." So I started thinking about my own life. Looking back at all the bad things that I did or happened to me, I decided to make the most out of my life by creating new openings, finding more opportunities, and self-discipline.

"The world ends with you. If you want to enjoy life, expand your world. You gotta push your horizons out as far as they'll go."
Video game quote lol. But it has been the biggest inspiration in my life.

I'm my biggest enemy.
No enemy can scare me. It's me who's stop myself from achieving my goals.
If people or the world disses me, I don't care. I can always ignore them or screw them right back.
But it's hard to ignore the voice in your head.

Anyhow, I do my best to keep pushing. But sometimes I fail and sometimes I win.

I've felt that way ever since I was born and will probably continue to until the day they plant me in the ground or make my ashy remains a handy pavement stain concealer.

Like mypinkyrulez, I'm also soft-spoken. I don't like it at all. Sometimes I think I'm being ignored or others don't really care about what I have to say.

We can't get rid of those, fear are obstacle that gets in our way and I know
it's hard to think of it that makes our world smaller that we could imagine.
I experience this before where ever I go there always a failing me...
I always thought running away is a good solution but it does not help at alll...
