But that's just it Crabby, you are capable of better, and choose to act like a tool. The many mistakes we all make in our youth, and have detailed on here in an effort to help you, were just that- mistakes, things that, in hindsight, we see came out of poor judgement, and we have learned from. Being young is not a 'get out of jail free' card. We are all cut a bit more slack because we dont know sh1t from sh1nola, but it all stops being endearing when a 'kid' knows how to do the right thing, but decides not, choosing to be unpleasant. Thats not capricious youth, that is being a c*nt.

As for having people skills when you need them, you need them all the time, even when you dont need them. You think that every Personal training client you get spends 600 a month, or is a smokin hottie who wants to play with your pants-trombone!?!? Dream on. You will have dissinterested people, who not only use your sessions to largely ignore what you have to offer them by way of info and motivation, but will be delighted, having done so, to blame you for their failure to improve. They will tell their friends that 'they had a trainer for 6 months' (missing out that they only turned up once a fortnight) 'and it didnt do a thing for me'.

When you here this stuff you have 3 choices:

1. You can say, 'hey b1tch, its not my fault you wouldnt shift your a$$ in the gym and kept eating lard, you f*cking d1ck-monkey!!'

2. You can accept that part of the job is to be a scapegoat, and be happy to build up a portfolio of happy and improving clients who's results all can see and will silence critics for you.

3. You can understand that your critic is 100% right, and that you have failed to 'crack' the lock to her brain that will allow her to become a self motivated answer to her own problems.

None who succeed go for option 1. Most will settle for option 2. The best will strive to embrace option 3.

The gap between 1 and 3 cannot be breached unless you start now. You are not a kid Crab. You have taken charge of your own destiny, you live away from your parents, beholden to none but yourself. Thats not a kid. As such, when you steer your own path, only an idiot takes the course that leads nowhere they want to go.
Don't let the door hit ya' where the good lord split ya'
