I have missed my opportunities in life
(Beverly Hills, Fl.)
I am 56 years old and I have come to realize that I have missed my opportunities in life. This is all because I was afraid that I was not good enough. As I was growing up I worked in my Dad's construction business.
When I was about 20 years old I decided that I was going to go back to school. I attended the University of Florida. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Science. When I got out of school I was to afraid to get a job with my degree. So, I went back to my Dad's construction business.
After a few years I decided to get my Residential contractor's license. I never used that either, it does qualify the company. Currently I am part owner of the company, but I am still working construction.
I can't believe that I didn't do something with my degree or with my Contractor's license and I end up at the same place I started.
I am so ashamed and depressed with what I have done, I feel like I have done nothing.
