Thanks for sharing your stories guys. Makes me feel better to know I am not the only unworthy human failure that took something seriously and gave up like a scared kid.
No shame. No shame at all. It's all part of life. God loves you. And have a Merry Christmas.
The answer is easy. I simply do not want to sustain me and my wife by coaching 5 year old kids and charging way too much on dumb lessons about forks. Tell me dear chess.com user, why did you stop caring about chess?
Once a while, i get tired of my job... so I find a new job but in the same line of work. Based on what you wrote, looks like you are tired of teaching kids chess; maybe switch to teaching adults? There are many adults who want to learn chess because their kids are starting chess; you just have to make it like a single weekend class or something that fits into their schedule.
Or you may switch to an entirely new line of work. A friend of mine switched from engineering into medicine (but note that he had to go back to school and put in 5 yrs of study and waited a year before able to get a residency .. so 6 years total of 0 income; so save up some money before switching lines of work). But he's still there in medicine, so I assume everything worked out ok.
But wasn't the marriage coming after achieving GM status?
I failed life. The only damn meaning of life, breeding. I failed.
We all have down times; otherwise, we wouldn't be able to have up times. It is just normal; not failure.
It'd be a real shame were you a bunny
