The boy who thought dreams were real

Have you ever wanted something so bad, you were willing to waste your entire life following it? What happens when you waste your entire life then realize you never achieved it? What happens when all the sweat, the blood, the tears and dreams end up for nothing. One day you wake up, jobless, broke, and unloved then suddenly reality kicks in full drive. You realize then you just don't have what it takes. Its as simple as that. Suddenly, abruptly, you realize your dream wasn't at the end of you finger but behind the moon. You know life isn't fair but you catch yourself wondering why no one told you life was fucked up? Completely fucked up. Then you feel trapped. It isn't the first time you feel that way, but somehow this time it feels different. You know this time you won't recover. This punch was just too strong. You break, you crawl and you drown. People once thought great things were in store for you. They thought you would be a somebody. You'd change things when you got the chance. But the chance never came. Or perhaps it did and you missed it. Either way, it will never be yours. I wish I could end this with a happy ending. But this isn't a fairytale nor is it a movie. Its a story of my life. I guess I wasn't as tough and brave as I thought I was. I failed. There's nothing more to it then that.

dude don't give up, you don't know how far success is in front of you, it could be just around the corner, or early next week next month or next year, join some groups that can help you to find it, I was frustrated with my self, I've watched my lifestyle go from complete success to barely hanging on ,but I'm not gonna give up, neither should you, find some new friends, you will succeed just keep plugging at it,

You speak for a lot of people including myself. I could have posted that word for word. I can't understand how the cards of life are handed out. But I can tell you that there is a reason for this failure. Maybe you needed it to see what life is really about. Life is for those with guts and courage to keep going through the fire. Even if you have nothing to say in the end but "At least I tried. At least I did that much." I respect that. There are a lot of people who just need to be encouraged that way. Please come over and make a comment at

In the same boat. At least you're not alone. Don't listen to those who say 'don't give up!'. It just makes you pursue and waste more of your time and energy and sanity. Accept that life is garbage and just be glad that someday it will all end. In the meantime, chill out and have a beer. The struggle to achieve the unachievable, whatever that may be, is over.

I agree with every word you said. It's no use fighting a battle you already lost. Once an individual finally realize the depth of his/her miserable fate, it becomes clear that life isn't meant, nor does it deserve, to be taken seriously.
