    Dear Kkasxo:

    You are welcome. There is something in the post you submitted on the other thread that I want to point out to you:

    “I don’t believe anything good will come my way. In all honesty, I truly do believe that my life prior… was the best of the best, and if that couldn’t last then really what hope in life do I have?!… I was about 3 months or so into this whole ordeal, well look at me 8/9 months later and still in the same rabbit hole if not deeper… will be here to listen to the same story over and over and over again if need to because I too am living and ‘replaying’ each day”-

    – your attitude is your biggest obstacle. It is as if you see value in “listening to the same story over and over and over again” and “replaying’ each day” yourself.

    It is as if you are being a good friend when you encourage another to tell the same story over and over and over again, learning nothing.

    As if you see merit in a life of the same old, same old story being replayed every day, for the rest of one’s days. I lived decades stuck in the same old, same old story. I wish I didn’t waste my life that way.

    There is a saying, “Misery likes company”. Lots of people find comfort in that company, being miserable themselves and surrounding themselves with others who are miserable, learning nothing.

    You are in your mid twenties. I hope you don’t waste your life “in the same rabbit hole”- no benefit in that other than that peculiar emotional comfort in misery.
