Default What achievements are you most proud of?

Firstly would have to be my beautiful little daughter, but can't really take all the credit there, the effort was only half an hour of mine and 9 months of someone else

I think the thing I'm most proud of is that although I am completely socially inept and a bit scared of the world I have still managed to travel extensively and got to see and experience many different cultures. Some of the places I've been: Cuba, Vietnam, China, Tibet, Thailand, US, all over europe. Although again, I can't take a lot of the credit for that, I have a very good friend who drags me around no matter how crap I'm being...

Thatís what I hate most about SA, all the places I want to visit but canít yet. Oh well, the travel fund keeps growing, so itíll be ready when I am.

Iím proud that Iím basically an optimistic person, despite having a problem that would probably bottom-most-people-out.

Do like me and find a travel buddy to help you along the way, I'm sure there are like minded people here who would love to hook up and travel together to help each other out.

I don’t know if my SA spectrum or whatever will allow for that. One of my biggest fears is meeting people. I think I could travel across the globe alone before I could meet someone from the board. :/

Cheers Looking Forward. Thanks or the thread, it's really helped me get over how badly I've been feeling about myself the last few weeks.

We've both done allright haven't we? When you put a life in that positive perspective

The only thing I am any good at is playing guitar and computers. I am pretty hopeless at everything else.

How did you manage to do that? As for me I have a good family. I have lived in three countries.

I used to be proud of having gotten straight A's for 23 straight marking periods when I was a kid. But I've realized that I only accomplished that because I was afraid of not being good enough.

Other than that I haven't really achieved anything, despite showing early promise. I can dabble in nearly everything, but I still haven't found one thing that I'm great at. Maybe that's my achievement?
