    So, the questionnaire requires him to describe a problem, and then provide his own solution.

    Someone, somewhere, is getting paid to do nothing.

    The better answer is to address WHY YOU LET other people make you feel bad. There’s nothing in it for you, ever.

    Cancel all social media accounts; then trick your rat roommate to Airbnb with the Crocs.

    No one can make you feel bad about yourself without your permission!!

    So go to those people and say:

    “I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass, and I’m all out of bubblegum!”

    Oh Pig Alone at home leaves you with your thought pest critic. The Best Answer is to help someone else. Notice if someone seems to be struggling, and ASK if there is a way you can help. If they say no, that’s OK Pig…walk on looking for another opportunity

    If you’re not gonna leave home, Pig, you should also disconnect your Wi-fi. The internet is full of…. people who may make you feel bad about yourself.

    At my old job we had to do “self reviews”. I always pointed out that while I might not be the best engineer in the world but I certainly was one of the top three. Regarding Pig’s situation I believe that most folks actually know what’s wrong with them…but refuse to recognize that knowledge or just don’t want to make the effort to change.

    My dad says that the problem is that too many people don’t have any common sense; that’s why they don’t have the clarity to try to solve these problems by themselves.
