I did start my post by saying this might sound harsh and to try and put things in perspective. This game is very hard to master and perhaps we should realise our limitations.A lot of wisdom on this thread and I hope anyone can find a nugget of hope from at least one of the posts (apart from the comment to just get over yourself ).
As someone who is going through a slump, reading this really made me feel more positive and confident that I can come through the other side. The forum at its best. Thank you to all the wonderful contributors
There are far more important things in life to worry about.
