    In order to not derail this thread. I feel contemplative yet again.

    Well, sometimes - often - there are BIG things that you can't simply sidestep with a bit of positive thinking. For example, I'm out of the job market. Why? Because I have an autistic kid that needs 24 hour care. Sure, I can look at it positively and say "here's an opportunity for personal development, learning, patience, character building, and it's rewarding as I love my kid and it's good to do what's right by her". But that doesn't instantly magic away all those parts of my personality that are NOT happy spending the foreseeable future at home the majority of the time, with no discernible life of my own.

    Sometimes there are things that really SUCK, that you CANNOT do anything about. Sometimes, big, bureaucratic government departments can destroy someone's life in the time it takes to print a letter saying "appeal unsuccessful", and you're just too small to have any influence over the matter. And you just have to suck it up. Reserving the right to, every once in a while, sigh when it gets on top of you a bit, is perfectly human IMO.

    I feel FURIOUS at these self-appointed amateur psychologists who think that just cos they've read a couple of issues of Psychiatric Times or a few articles in Cosmo, they're equipped to give all-encompassing advice on changing their worldview, to vulnerable people (especially strangers!) at difficult times in their lives.

    Hyper alert, irritated, and exhausted at the same time.

    Though generally quiet.

    Unwell, sorry for myself, miserable with a virus and bored but too scattered with the virus to think

    I think people tell other people that their failures are their own doing because it allows them to conversely attribute any success to themselves as well.

    And that's a good thing.
    Parts of success and failure is due to luck, part of it is due to others, and part of it is due to yourself. It is unfair to attribute failure to bad luck and/or others and success to yourself.

    Right now, I'm feeling calm and rested. I'm in a good, positive mood, despite the exams waiting to be composed.

    I feel utterly horrible because I have hardly slept. For the last three weeks I've got by on about 4 hours per night.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.
