    ? What things do you want that you can't buy?
    Play my sport at international level. I can buy the kit etc. but can't buy the skill. Anyway, learning the skill in the fun bit. Regardless of the downsides

    Which sport? I guess that can be bought if you start doping with some expensive performance enhancing drugs lol

    There is no contradiction between being special and unique (not superior, but good) and being the same as everyone else. Each of us is equally valuable in the cosmos. Our position in the universe is totally average, but also as worthy as all other positions.

    Years of bullying. My schoolmates did a good job of hammering that into me from a young age

    Hockey haha. I have a feeling that whilst drugs may be useful, they wouldn't actually be worth it. I need repetition, repetition, experience and repetition.

    woah dude, that's not exactly what I meant.

    are you ok now?

    Well, the thoughts are still there from time to time. I don't know if this is something serious, or perhaps it's just that memory deeply imprinted.

    Cool. I played hockey at school a few times but I'm not exactly that good. And your right, drugs won't really help in sports like hockey- plus you won't he the same sense of achievement. I guess money can't buy everything.

    That's awful , don't say that or think that. Nothing painful lasts forever. The sun will always rise tomorrow, and the next day, and 10 years from now, life will not look the same as it does in 10 years or 20.

    You should talk to someone about this.
    I agree, life will not look the same in the future.

    But what if that life is bleak?
    Cold and unforgiving.

    I can't just put my hopes in an uncertainty?
    That's why a pack of ibuprofen gives you that one certainty.

    There is no certainty with life, to ask for that is foolish. Something terrible and tragic could happen in the next minute, you never know. But that is the whole point, it's the "not knowing" which makes life worth living. Something amazing could happen in a week from now. You just don't know!

    We do get stronger, from all the bad things that happen to us. You learn to live with all those things, and move past many of them. Every human experiences bad things, it's just life.

    You have so much to live for, places to visit, people to meet. People come and go in life, and there are some truly special people out there, and when the crappy ones leave,it just makes more room for the special ones !

    I have felt horrible on many occasions, but then I look back and think "it wasn't that bad" or "I've learn from that". It's just the way life is.

    You will be happy, I promise. Even the most saddest people can achieve happiness, trust me. It's possible, you never stay the same for ever. Life is like a roller coaster, you just go up and down over and over and over again until you die. Sometimes your up for longer than you ever thought you could be, or down for longer than you expected, but it's a continuous roller coaster so it never stops.

    I never was special and I never will be. I may be different from a lot of people but that doesn't make me special just different.

    Wrong. The only thing certain in life, is death.

    Life= being alive.

    Death= end of life.

    Yes we are all certain to die but obviously I was talking about the state of being alive.

    You cannot have life without death.
