    Capitals ? That's just so mainstream. You should be more open-minded and unconventional.

    No, what you should have gotten out of it is that there are forces or powers beyond our control, for good or worse. but there is no practical reason to know these things such as what if the future is already in place or some things we cant change by seeing into the future. It would make us fatalistic and not even try against all obstacles or chance. The only reason i think i was shown this pertaining to my life was the fact that i was being undermined, abused and sabotaged and on a one-way hellish train that i could not get off of except death. Some people are just dealt a terrible hand and a lot of my sense of failure, low self-esteem and self-criticism was unfair and harsh toward myself for which i had no control.

    Good news is... the hand you happen to hold seems to be leadin you toward realizin that you can cut back on the self-criticism cause thers plenty of others to do that for you.!!!

    After confessing my own fears and self-criticism on childhood experiences, and blaming my current behavior on it, a wise woman pointed out to me that that certainly controlled who I was then - but it does not have to control who I am from now on.

    You already know that it isn't your fault: you know you were dealt a bad hand. So your low self-esteem is unwarranted. Right?
