Yes, I knew it would never happen.3
What Girls & Guys Said
Yes. I used to dream of being an engineer. But I’ve always lacked the motivation and energy to go to school and do it. I barely had the motivation to finish highschool, im still surprised I graduated.
Even if I started schooling for it, I know I wouldn’t stick with it so there’s no point0
I wanted to be a doctor when I was young. But highschool was genuinely traumatic as stressed as I was all the time. I have nightmares about having to go back to highschool and it's been almost 9 years since I graduated. Once I found out how much more schooling you need I changed my mind.0
I wanted to continue my education but I think I might be too old. My dream was to be a psychologist. I could do teachers college, but I have no desire to be a teacher.0
Yes. When I was not appointed to the US Naval Academy and told that my vision wasn't good enough to become a naval aviator, it was time to give up the dream and move on to Plan B.0
Yes- it wasn't practical in any way, but I wanted to be an astronaut. "You're too fat!" - I can lose weight. "You don't know enough!" I can learn. But "You're too tall"? Nothing I can do about that.0
If it is dropped I would pick up on my dreams once again to achieve it by trying so hard otherwise giving up does not even suit me.0
I did and then I was counselled against it... so I sought my dream and it became a reality.
Ever since I've always been a believer in living out one's dreams.0
Sure, I always thought I'd be married with a family. I never imagined I'd one day give up on it.0
Yeah working in the Animation Industry. It sucks. there's too much competition. Nobody cares about you.0
I hesitate to call them "dreams", but yes. All of them.0
I gsve up on that rock years ago. It’ll just roll downhill again eventually…
Yeah, my priorities change. Not necessarily a bad thing.0
Actually no to be honest I've been keeping to all my dreams and some of them have come true.0
Yes. I’ve realized I had too many to for all of them to be realistic0
Well there's a reason why they are called dreams now right?0
Yes, perhaps erroneously0
@CAPTAIN-OBVIOUS Sadly Yes !2
My middle name is "give up" so yeah.0
Most of them and found others0

Yeah. I'm short, so I gave up on women, happiness, and self-acceptance ages ago. I've studied Stoicism in order to 'cope' with it.
By the way, it's not that I need a woman to be happy. But I did want to raise a family. That is literally impossible for me to do now though. I'm too short to be in a mutual relationship with a woman who loves me as much as I love her. Yeah; gold digging and simping is an option, but that's not love, to me. Also, my genetics are so dogsh*t and horrendous, I vow to NEVER conceive children! I couldn't live with myself cursing another person to have the f*cked up DNA I was cursed with. From Precocious Puberty, to being short, to Hypothyroidism, to the small penis, to general ugliness... I would've loved to have kids *IF* I wasn't a genetic abomination of inferior height and DNA.
TL;DR to the above: I can't see myself living a fulfilled life without raising children, and I'm too short to ever meet a woman who'd accept me as I am.
The other thing I could do with life is become super crazy rich, but that's unlikely. Not impossible, like finding love in this body, but just really low odds. So I haven't really given up on making money. But self-acceptance is unlikely. Rather, "liking/loving myself as I am." I can reluctantly accept I look like a toad's fart. But I don't mean that.
So yeah, I gave up on happiness long ago. It is literally impossible being as short and unattractive as I am. Any thoughts of changing what is impossible are ephemeral. I know not to waste too much time on fairy tales and nonsense fantasies.
