I like a lot of people have said here just look at the positives in life. The more time you think about negative it will slowly bring you down. Like you said yourself you are working on your shape and keeping at it which an awesome job! You know that working hard gets achievements so congrates on that. The more you think about turning that milestone the more you will worry, just let it happen and keep on with what you were doing before. With regards to people in general some of them are closed minded like you said but their are other that aren't people just like you, you just have to find them. Starting a course is always a good start meeting people and decided who you like and who you don't.
So try to be open minded with people we all have our flaws but its the good you look into people. Good luck on turning 18 and as you said if you want to become successful you will be driven to meet you expectations!
I think most of your "frame of mind" is right, but some of it isn't. It's really good that you're going to start TAFE and that you are pretty much just trying to be a good person. but I don't think you should have this permanent mind-set that everyone is ignorant and fuck everyone I'll just be alone cause it's better/easier. Everyone needs someone to talk to and have a laugh with, sometimes
Not all people are close-minded and ignorant.. I hope you can open up yourself to those people. I've figured it's okay to be alone, but finding friends who we can trust is a big weight lifted from us..hope that helps..
Well, while you can be whatever you want to be.....that includes and are willing to work for.
What are you doing to achieve your goals? Dropping out of school is a bad sign, and that goes for employers of even the meanest sort. The person who quits is generally going to keep on quiting when things get hard, and in life, things always go in cycles, sometimes things are hard, sometimes they are good.
Is TAFE going to get you into the field you want to become successful in? Not saying don't do it. Since you have dropped out of school, even if TAFE will not get you into your field, you are going to need some job skills, and completing one program often cancels out the dropping out of another (at least in employer's eyes)
You will need to connect with people for almost any job field. And it will be easier to connect with people and learn how to read them and be personable prior to job interviews, so I would suggest connecting with people. You are not looking for a deathless best friends forever relationship here, just people you can talk to and listen to. That way you have good listening and speaking skills prior to having your future job depending on them.
Since you are working on getting in shape, an exercise group, even if it is just a "walk around the park" group would be a good starting place.
Here in the states if you drop out of High School, you can take a test, which gives you an equivilancy degree. If you take that and go on to community college (basicly a 2 year program that prepares you for a specific job, like welder, or to go on to 4 year college) if you complete that program, you generally have a better chance of getting a job than someone with just a high school degree, and if you drop out of/do not complete that as well, you have a worse chance of getting a job than others.
That is why I said stick with the TAFE even if it will not get you to the field you want to get in to.
And "a reasonable amount of qualifications to get a job" depends entirely upon the job. You are saying that you are going to be successful in the field of your choice. That can work, but that may not be the path that TAFE sets you on and you may have to take additional steps and do additional problem solving to get there.
Your in the right frame of mind. For the most part. The only negative thought is the whole "i dont need people" idea. Everyone EVERYONE needs friends. Thats what makes us emotionally healthy people. So don't cut yourself away from the world all because a few shitty people screwed you over.
Thats another problem. It's ok to have some hobbies where you just sit around isolating yourself, but you need hobbies where your out and about and being active too. Something simple like going to a gym 4 times a week for a workout and talk to some people while doing it. Maybe you can sign up to a weekly bowling league.
The thing is people who isolate themself miss out on alot of things in life. Not only that but social interaction and various other things lowers your stress levels and makes you a better person overall. Having friends with some kind of emotional attachment is realy theraputic to the soul and really helps you out in many ways by lowering the amount of stress you have to deal with on a daily basis. I know all this because when i was in a mental institute getting diagnosed bipolar all we heard from the counselers and the workers there was ways to manage our stress and take care of ourselves.
Stop lying to yourself. Diets will always fail you. They're always temporary.
The only solution is to change your lifestyle. Drop the 'diet' and make permanent changes. Make sure you're getting your daily fiber too. Consistent intake will help you lose weight over the long haul and keep you healthy.
You could always do the shark diet, wrap yourself in bacon and go play in the waves when the Great Whites are around
If you have goals and a gameplan, just make sure you don't burn yourself out. Find ways to relax, chill, and burn stress. Don't worry about other people. You'll eventually meet humans you can co-exist with.
Well I think I could really stick to this diet. I don't really feel like quiting anytime soon and I have made lifestyle changes, I'm trying to do 1 hour of gym every day. hehe shark diet. Well im trying not to get discouraged but no one around my house is helping.
Go for it and never give up. You sound like someone who will make it, to live the way he wants to live, to get things done.
I like you already for doing it for yourself. Your thought is not "fuck them, I'll show them", the goal is clearly only with a focus on your wellbeing. Which is rare.
Also, Prefering to be alone is not a sickness, even though many seem to think it is. Friends come and go. True friends are harder to find and I know I haven't encountered more than 2 in my whole life. I was even told once, that when you find 3 true friends in your whole life, you are a very lucky person.
You don't need a big group of people around you, especially not to make yourself look social.
Though don't be disappointed when you don't FEEL different once 18. d:
It's good to think positively, so definitely keep believing that you'll be successful. However, it's also good to give yourself a more concrete, attainable goal than simply to be successful. What does successful actually entail?
Write down a list of what you hope to achieve - careers, skills, personal life - and work out the best way to go about getting it. It's great that you've worked hard to get in shape and lose weight; now apply that same mentality to other areas of your life. Trying to become an adult seems like a huge, intangible goal; writing down real aims for yourself will help you to move forward in a manageable way and know you're making progress,
We don't really have a big enough population to make everyone go through university. Of course we need some sort of training but the media keeps telling us we don't have enough workers so they're trying to get as many people to work as possible. Most of the work here is some sort of Mining job or trade. you have a better chance of getting those jobs than a behind the desk job. purely because all the minerals were exporting to China is a main source of money and we need houses because our population is growing rapidly. some people think you can make more money digging up the ground than working behind a desk.
Rev up your ratio. Make a list of your values and then a list of your targets in life. Get rid of the contradictions: if you find a contradiction, check your premises, you'll find that one or more of them are wrong. Once you have a clear idea of what you think is important, divide it all up in baby steps. Then start walking.
