What's goin' on?

For some reason, I just feel inadequate lately. Things aren't going the way I want or what other people want. My own expectations and what others expect of me are not being met and I'm faced with the result of these things. Questions or inquiries, added tasks to take on, higher expectation... it feels like I'm just not going to make it.

It seems as if every place I turn to there is disappointment and disapproval. I know that VBS is not going to be set up if I only offer up the abilities I am good at, but I don't see how I can do all the decorations and stuff the way I am expected to. It can be done... I know it... but my vision and standard of "great" is not the same as other people's.

I still have my life to get back together and it makes me want to give up... but I know that I won't grow from that. I may not be able to lend a hand in many areas, but at least I should be encouraging others around me and searching for ways to help. I'll keep at it... even though I do feel discouraged.

Sorry it came out blurry... I got a bit tired and they were so worn out from boxing. Awesome match. Never thought boxing could be made to be a gentlemanly sport. I guess it's 'cause of the people who are playing.
