...give them up, and let them go, as the dreams that they are?
I'm not sure why this came to mind... maybe cause I'm listening to Aerosmith - Fly Away From Here, i dont know...
i think I've crossed that point a dozen times in my mind, but i always keep dreaming. Why do i put myself through the torture and convince myself that if I "get my act together" i can accomplish my dreams?... I think its impossible, although i keep lying to myself and telling myself that i can make it...
damn, now i'm depressed. (i know i go through these little cycles where i "give up" on stuff, but hey, am i giving up, or am i "getting real"?)

no, i'm not asleep, yet, dammit.

Mel Gibson went ahead and married that broad and had dozens of children-there went dream one.
No matter how hard I wished, no bags of money fell from the sky to the front door of my house. That was dream number 2.
Gravity hit and everything fell instead of remaining perky. Dream number 3 down the tubes.
I'm still related to all of my brothers and sisters-that shot the orphan dream right out the window.
But..I'm still hanging on to dream 3, that Passwird grows up to be a famous internet superstar and will publicly thank me for starting the Passwirds rise to fame thread. *sigh*.......

ok, i'm talking about "dreams" that are actually feasable to soo many people, just not you and me... like getting a good education, a great job, a big nice house, the perfect wife (or husband for the ladies), the perfect car(s) ('91 Ferrari Testarossa for me).
the sad thing is, that when i say "well, i'll never make it to my dreams", then automatically i resign to "settle for less", and the lesser something my be something perfectly fine and good, but when compared to a dream, it comes up lacking...
I mean, I could ask out my friend heather, and maybe even end up marrying here a few years down the road... but there will always be that nagging of "what if" i hade made it to the good job, and the fancy car, and the "hot babe", "instead of someone like heather". And when i do that, it TERRIBLY downgrades my friend, and i sooo hate to even think that, but for some reason i cant STOP thinking like that. (humm, here i go again... I'm anaylising everything). I wonder if That is why i've never asked her out... cause i still have this stupid dream that i cant fulfill. DAMN@#$(*@#)($*@)#($*@#)($*.
no, i dont feel better, sorry.

You better hope she doesnt read this :nono:

she wont - ever.
but thats exactally my point... the fact that I'm even THINKING that, is sooo sad. I'm having this terrible time (and have been having a terrible time for almost 2 yeras now) actually convincing my brain that my dreams arent gonna come true. The problem is that i cant ever quite convince myself. :(

Live for the moment, one day at a time.....because if dreams dont become reality then you will consider "yourself" a failure.
All you can do is hope that the best becomes of it

"There are two great rules of life, the one general and the other particular.
The first is that everyone can, in the end, get what he wants if he only tries.
This is the general rule. The particular rule is that every individual is more or less
an exception to the general rule."
