missing the point as usual people......You either have confidence or you don't. ...if baldguy28 (reference to another post today) is in a situation where he is still young, short (I'm 5'8 too), and bald(ing), then clearly life is shitcanning him to the back of the line....balding is a form of suffering; many realists and pragmatists understand that suffering is a part of life.....many people on the forums trying to help others just want to close this part out and they can't deal with the suffering (and yes, I know it's all relative). I terribly believe you can't paint over dirt. The balding person absolutely knows his situation is dirt, even when we try to paint it over(for those not too bright, dirt=hairloss, paint=propecia, minoxidil, etc.). and yet another metaphor by our friend Freud......sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, meaning your bald then your f---ed socially. Can't wishcast otherwise....unless your tall, muscular and handome of course.
