And you were probably excited about your future. Recall what excited you. What were you going to accomplish there? Why did you think you were the best fit?
When you have clearly defined the role you wish you were playing, make it come true. Figure out how to produce great work. Meeting expectations is good, but boring. If you truly want to create opportunities of greatness, you must take risks and inspire others to take their own risks--to embrace becoming the absolute best version of their own brilliance.
It's scary, but it's the only thing that separates good from great. Research shows that more than anything else, a job-well done where you've made a positive difference in someone's life and they recognize you for it is not only the most sought-after reward, but it's the one thing most likely to propel people to their next great achievement. Own your work, and give others ownership of theirs. Doing the same thing time and again will produce the same results time and again.
If you want to love your job again, or you want the people around you to love their jobs, you need to create fear and firsts--push outside of the comfort zone. First time sitting alone and aching, with all that frustrated, unfulfilled wanting, then such a shameful thing, turning so easily into hatred for the self. But in context, it was a painful thing to hear and to re-read. The body as object. My body a thing to be fucked. Somehow, after all the obsessing about what he was thinking and how he felt, I remembered to think about me, to try to figure out who I was in all of this.
What had I learned? How had I changed?

Was I swept away in the hazy, dreamlike quality of waking up at ungodly hours of the morning in the summer anyway , and dressing in leggings and tank tops, wearing jazz shoes or dresses and cowgirl boots, bewitched by buses and trains and the people and Manhattan and college, and the shock of being accepted after an audition to learn how to sing, dance, move, and act.
Was I a different Christina then? Christina, breaking out of Bayside, surrounded by music and dancing and acting? Wearing fairy wings, dancing, screaming, falling madly madly madly in lust because he was there, and straight, and talented, and so damn good at kissing that all the whirlwind heat around me was in me too.

Was I different, or growing into someone more real and uninhibited? And then after…did he change, or just stop acting? The diary goes on like that for a while — overwrought ruminations on acting and realness, reassessing the validity of all that had happened between us in light of the fact that someone can tell you they care and then disappear without a word.
More seriously, though, it is alarming to be taught all your life that your body is a temple, a singular and sacred thing, a thing that you give in exchange for love, all you have to give, in fact — and then to have it abandoned without a note, an email, even a text. I wrote, over and over again, that I felt cheapened by the experience. That the act of trusting, of making myself vulnerable and bare—in various ways but most especially physically—fundamentally changed something about who I understood myself to be.
A woman is more than a body — this was a surprisingly difficult lesson, even for a young feminist, to learn. It took me years to unlearn, but eventually I did: The body is not a temple, it is a body, and it is yours to do with as you will. The disrespect and callousness a person shows you does not mean that you are creature undeserving of love, of tenderness. It is a thing you can choose not to do, too, and that is also fine, there is no value judgment. It took me years to unlearn what desire means in a woman. Desire in a woman is not monstrous or shameful; you do not have to pray to gods or eternal virgins to protect you from it.
At 17, I felt as though I had been swept completely away by desire. It took me a year—or probably even longer—to recover from a relationship that had lasted barely a month. T here are glimpses of the woman I am now in the girl I was then.

She was strong, and she was anxious, and she was brittle, and she was lonely, but mostly she was a person, fully realized. She had experienced her first love story; it would be the first of many. Reading my diary from my senior year of high school was also a first, in a way: Although there was a lot of angst contained within it— so much angst that I had to take breaks out of lingering embarrassment — there was also a girl who knew how to trust herself.
Why Can't I Forget My First Love?
Dozens of love stories later, that girl is still me. Life is short. She will still feel loved even if it doesn't work out. Let us know how it goes. Lesliewins thank you for you advice, We still live in the same area we have always been in so I hope we do bump into each other one day. You have such an amazing story to tell and it was such a beautiful letter. I would never think that a love from 20 years ago would effect me at this stage but here I am. I believe it may have a lot to do with maturing,if we were both at this level of maturity early on things could have worked out just fine - that could go for a lot of past relationships, but this one is just stuck in my heart.
I have been praying that we will cross paths soon, but if we don't I will pray for the strength to ask if she will meet me for closure. As we have mutual friends, id not like to be seen as a creep lol. London 32 You should go and find her and get closure while she is still alive even if she doesn't love you. Real love is from God and even if you are not supposed to be together you can still tell her how much she meant to you.
Love is not a bad thing and God wants your heart to heal. If you scroll down to 8 months ago in the comments you will see a letter I wrote to my first love. For the past week or so I have been dreaming of my first love we met 20 years ago every night. I have never had such vivid dreams and the feelings of love and comfort are so intense and pure.
These dreams have constantly on and off but when they start it happens literally every night. I wake up thinking if she dreams about me too, what could have been or what could be. How can I ask for closure after 20 years lol. I know where my first love is, who he married my replacement and the children they had. It drives me crazy, but now I am getting old and I can only look back and try to face the fact he wanted someone else and not me I met this girl we used to go everywhere until i saw her and a other guy my heart shattered i still remember her I listen to country to remember her i cry sometimes.
I was at a basket ball tournament in glen allen alaska and i met this amazing girl her smile the way she was so proper funny i fell in love with her instantley we were inseprable that weekend.
I don't know will i ever get detached from the feeling of loving him or not But i don't know also I want to get to get detached also It's been 2. I always wanted and imagined my life with him But I can't be with him.. It seems at nighttime before going to bed I too think of my ex even though I have a guy lying next to me. Little does he know I think of you and you are in my heart always. Can you forget me? Can I forget you? Maybe we can never achieve that and there will always be that feeling of undone between us.
There is no solution and I only wish you the best. I think of us. How happy we were. The deviation you put me through. I will never in my life forget you or be mad Bc you gave me something that I search for in everyone I meet. Nor am I in love w you. I love you mason. I wish I can remember the first time I layed eyes on her sophomore year of high school.
Her name was Laura. Our first date we watched Friday the 13th Part 3 her choice. A girl after my own heart. Finally after a few dates we were officially a couple. We dated for a year. It was the best year of my existence. I can recall each memory crystal clear. Then out of the blue, she dumped me.
