Forum: Goals, Plans, Hopes

So, for some reasons or others, we all have dreams and goals that feel unobtainable. It can be super hard to face that or let them go. For me, it is my dream of being a therapist for those who could not otherwise afford care. I am disabled and cannot go back to school, succeed in school, or hold a job. So this is way out of my reach. However, it is still my dream and it will always have a special place in my heart. Do y'all have any dreams that feel unobtainable but you can't let go?

I think you should go for it! We only live once so why not!

When i was younger i wanted to become a musician. In particular i wanted to make alt rock but my incompetence at playing musical instruments and my own self worth at playing was so low I gave it up. I dont regret it tbh. Ive learned to make more realistic goals.

Rn my main goal is to get my degree, certifications, and work experience in the IT field so I can move to Australia or any other country. Mainly Australia because I love my partner UwU but ive always wanted to live abroad. I feel like this isnt unobtainable but it will be very difficult but it feels impossible.

Never give up!

Don't think I'll ever be able to win a major pinball tournament. I am mediocre at best and the same 10 or so people all finish at the tops of these events. I'm also not sure if I want it bad enough.

You complete 100% of the goals that you don't set!

Starting to believe that I'll never find a boyfriend/SO. I'm almost done with college and I've yet to get the little amount of men I've liked to stick with me for more than 2 dates, and more often than not I don't get any dates. I'm basically a bro and/or sister to the guys I do end up talking to, and they end up going for a more conventionally attractive version of me (aka looks JUST like me but taller). I'm honestly starting to get a complex about it, and I am starting to understand why shorter men feel insecure about their height/dating.

I have a sister who has a bf and we're really close in age so it makes me feel really insecure about myself. I'm starting to think that I need to consider resorting to more drastic measures like cosmetic surgery or even moving to another country for the sake of getting any kind of love life. 
I'm not fat, am petite and am well-rounded with a decent amount of male-dominated hobbies, which you would think would make my situation easier, but it truly doesn't help me at all. It honestly almost makes it worse. 
I'm truly at a loss because I've been told by my loved ones that I am likable/interesting, so maybe it's just bad luck.. :(( It's embarrassing and I want to start lying to others about fake boyfriends I've had for the sake of fitting in and not looking like a loser.

@Macky you are one of the most relatable people on this site.


I used to want to be a musician. Then a lawyer, I wanted to specialise in workplace law and represent trade unionists.

Now, I just want to get my heart problem diagnosed and take things from there. I don't know what to do career wise anymore, but IT is an option.

i've always wanted to become an astrobiologist but i have dyscalculia and struggle with math, so it's unlikely i'll ever actually become one....but that won't stop me from making some of my own fictional characters astrobiologists though lol
