    I Suck In Friendships

    It seems like everything I put my hand to I fail in.  I failed in a business venue, I nearly gotten into bankruptcy, and I can't keep a friend.  There's so much that I can't do...I just lost a friend last month because of something stupid I said.  I guess I need to completely...

    Fail.

    I'm just so lazy... most of the time I can't be bothered with anything. I feel like such a failure most of the time because I either don't bother to do things or I do try but I fail anyway... and then I get shouted at and told off. It just makes me feel like I've failed...

    Fail

    I don't know if it's from my mom always telling me I was a disappointment, or if I really am a failure. Either way, I feel like one eternally.

    Valuable Lesson

    When things go wrong, people love to say that it doesn't matter because at least you've learned a valuable lesson in life. To be honest there are many lessons about human nature that I wish I had never learned. Am I the only one to feel that way? Are all lessons good ones? I don...
