Every bad or uncomfortable thing that happens to you is a chance to make a change for the better. And sometimes, even when you're trying, other people aren't, so your attempts don't succeed. If you're lucky, you'll avoid the guilt and disappoinment that accompanies the failure, but you'll also have missed the entire point. At least, that's what I think. I also think I'll call my mom this weekend, as I feel like torturing myself.
