    Everytime I succeed at something it seems like

    there is always someone who points out all my other problems or flaws. I really need something to motivate me to not want to give up. I don't want to do anything that I will regret. Anybody have any ideas???

    If it were that easy. I am terrible at sticking to and accomplishing goals. I am thinking of joining 43 things though. That might help get my goals in order. What I really need is someone to keep me accountable. I can't keep myself accountable at all.
