i wish myself success in career so that somehow

it would make up for the sadness i am feeling in personal life. although money is not what we need to be happy but somehow it makes me forget how sad i am temporarily. although i am sure when i get alone again in my room, i would again realize and feel the pain and loneliness. but at least with having good career i could mask my sadness specially to the person that caused it.

You will never be succesfull in your career if you are unhappy. To be good at your work you need passion and you don't sound as if you have that. You just see a good carreer/succes as a way out of your loneliness. And if it comes to that you don't know what real loneliness is. If you feel really lonely you will feel that day and night, no matter if you are succesful, surrounded by people who love you. Kick yourself under your bottom instead and start making something out of your life. Just sitting there, whimping and complaining won't make you succesful at all. You are not the only one with a sadness, a lost love or lack of money. And I can assure you there is way worse that can happen to you. Things will only change if you are willing to do so.

Ps you probably won't believe me but ... it's you who caused you this. You can't blame anyone else for it. You allow yourself to feel miserable instead of fighting for yourself, appreciating yourself and taking care of yourself. So be mad at yourself.

hi wakeupkitty you are so right, we often are our own worst enemy nobody else could be as cruel. as a diabetic I have learned either I let something stress me out or I do not let it,stresses are always around but how we react to them is another thing, I use visualization of a magic bubble all around me , nobody else sees it, but stress bounces off it. and I remain happy with perfect blood sugar, not sick with high blood sugar.I have learned to like myself, to know I am unique one of a kind and I love myself,not selfishly but so that i know how to love others.

hotsummer, I don't know. I had a career but developed depression. It was very hard to work with all the thoughts running through my mind and I just couldn't shut those thoughts off. I think maybe if you can get those feelings of sadness under control you will do better with the career. I don't know if your sadness is just over something that has happened or if you have depression. Either way I would say deal with that first and then go out and get that career.

I often get to be thinking this way too.. he he but well i think no matter how successful you are, and no matter how great you feel with your work, with the numerious projects and career you have made for yourself.. nothing really beats a wonderful life with someone you love...
