post #16 of 23
...I had a similar experience to you except that i had my screw-up in High School and thus went to a local school for a year to get good grades and transfer. Five years later i have graduated from a very good college and work at a job I love, so there is light at the end of the tunnel if you are willing to put in the work....but it is a long tunnel. You are going to have to work really hard and break old habits...maybe even cut loose some old friends if they are pushing you in the wrong direction. It will be arduous, but if it wasnt arduous every kid in community college would do it. Remeber that every student at your school thinks they are going to do really well and transfer to a better college, but for 95% that will not be the case. See it as a challenge...the first in a long line of challenges that will encompass the rest of your life. Not to rain on the feel-good party but that's the way it is.

Oh well now you've gone and done it. Today I learned about fractions. This whole "penance" thing sucks.

Everyone has difficult moments, and I've always been surprised how often people keep their problems to themselves instead of sharing them more openly with others. This can be very lonely. But then again, perhaps one learns from experience that others just won't take the effort to understand and help, or one is too proud to admit one's own difficulties to others. But back to clothing: Dressing well does help. It helps to elevate your self-esteem and you hold yourself to a higher standard. Best wishes

orbitingio, instead of letting my clothes reflect my mood, I use clothes to lift my mood. If I'm feeling down, I dress up. Before I know it, I'm smiling at people (OK, usually women) and they're smiling at me. Then, I'm going to the gym regularly, doing favors for people and they for me, etc. The trick is finding something that makes you feel good about yourself. You do have a long road ahead of you, but each day focus only on what you need to do today to reach your goals and before you know it....real progress. Good luck. Hope you'll stay on the forum.
