I wondered before if you had any links with Hollywood or something similar. No wonder you've been messed up.
I only 'know' what I read, of course, but could you find more honest, grounded, everyday people to mix with?
Do you ever think that maybe the people who put you down might be threatened by you? They are so worried about keeping their own little niche they
can't afford even an iota of praise for anyone else.
If you're judging your looks (or allowing other people to judge them) by Hollywood standards, of course you will come up lacking. Most of us would.
Stop to think how much those people owe their looks to surgeons, cosmetics and good lighting.
I'm not trying to embarrass you (or flirt, you'll be pleased to know) but I saw your photos and you're ok. Not a matinee idol but very far from
Could you start a web-site? Have you thought of applying to illustrate for comics? Sell your art on the net?
I used to go to a market where artists sold their work - something like that could be a beginning.
Or advertising / marketing? I think I remember you saying you were able to think of constructions? Sorry, my memory's not good for technical stuff.
Could you go for architecture, engineering, maybe a draughtsman? Technical drawing - not trying to be ignorant, but these aren't my subjects.
Dogs will always be able to break your heart. I was totally in love with an ex-employer's dog, but we only had her for two years when she had a
'condition' and the decision was made to put her down.
I lost my old dog to cancer three years ago. Even though I have my new little one, I am near to tears as I write about the old one. He would have so
loved the place I am living in now.
The only comfort is in knowing that you did your best for them when you had the chance. You knew and appreciated how much they loved you.
I don't have any regrets about my old dog because I know that I couldn't have tried harder for him. I'm not perfect, and I'm not denying the odd
mistake but I did my utmost at the time as I'm sure you did. Why else would they love us so much?
It was important that you gave what you did and saw your friend safely over to the other side. I've got to go now, I'm crying for both of us.
