I was naïve for not being able to cut my losses, and I paid the price. “At the moment it seemed like a good idea”, is what maybe goes through everyone’s mind after they come into their senses from our failed attempts in Escalation of Commitment. Persistence is not always a good thing, and it could lead people into their own demise. I learned that you shouldn’t ignore the subtle signs that are given to you, whether to continue trying a little bit more, or quit while you are
These would be awful stories, wouldn’t they? And yet, the stories we tell ourselves about our desires and goals tend to follow along these same unfavorable lines. As soon as the going gets slightly tough, we fall apart from the inside out. Consider a recent example in your own life: What’s a positive change you’ve tried to make in your life, but have desperately struggled with? Whatever the positive change is, think about the story you started telling yourself the minute you realized you weren’t making progress as fast as you expected.
My life was never easy, my family was messed up, my country, my village, and my state was slowly falling apart, I never got to see my childrens face for the last time, I fought for my country and still not respect and no change. It's like the more I tried the less I succeed. So i'm writing this on my deathbed, so others can know what I had to go through and hopefully learn something. One thing I want to do is thank my kids, charlotte and Daryl for being brave for my and Also my wife who helps me get through this everyday. This isn’t an easy
This is because, people have different opinions regarding the topic. Some will say that health is important, some would say family, and some would say happiness. But in my honest opinion, the most important aspect in life is failure. It is true that failure is not something that should be look upon, but if you think again, what exactly did you gain from failure? You gained so much from just one failure.
Being a middle school teacher, I know there will be many students struggling with these issues from other students and from people at home. I may not be able to change home situations, but I can change things that happen at school. Like Celie, there will be students going through similar situations. Some may not have a voice because of the bullying they experience from other students of the same gender or different gender. The cause for bully can be triggered because of many different reasons, some reasons are because of race, gender, socioeconomic status, religion, or ethnicity, or just because they have found an easy target.
It is human nature to strive for happiness and do things that you enjoy doing. John Mill says, “those only are happy (I thought) who have their minds fixed on some object other than their own happiness” which I don’t agree with, I know personally in my own life there are lots of things that make me happy that don’t even involve other people or their happiness. I feel that most people agree that they want to be happy and strive to find that happiness, whether it is the perfect partner or a good job, everyday.

Embrace your flaws because that is part of who you are, without them, you 're not you anymore. Everyone has them, all they need to do is accept it.

Value yourself more, if someone makes you feel like your not good enough, simply think that maybe they are the ones that is not good enough because they can 't see how wonderful you are.
It is important to be surrounded by people and to not feel left out on your own. You are not obliged to be similar to those you surround yourself with, all humans are alike in a way anyway. Therefore you do not have to try too hard to fit in a group, it is more important to be yourself. You are more likely to get accepted into groups much more easily when you are different from everybody else as it seems to people that you have something they do not have which keeps them interested in you. A person should always be comfortable with the decision he/she makes in order to be happy and content.
You have to be confident. Even if you don’t feel that great some days fake it until you make it. People like hanging around others who ooze confidence.
