So I was just curious what one achievement you are most proud of that you did you your life? Achievement as in anything. Whatever you feel your most proud of. :P

In 6th grade i went to a backwoods school, I asked out the only black girl in the school, a foster kid who was just passing through, not to make a point or anything, but I found her attractive.

I wound up getting into fights for a long time after that.  Never telling anyone she turned me down.  I learned to enjoy standing alone through that.

I guess "learning to enjoy standing alone" is my biggest one.

Theres more to the backstory but i'm saving it for the eventual movie of my life.

Wherever there's a problem, there's solutions.
Answers are found from a wide deep perspective, from opened mind's eyes.
From where good and bad stay silent and you hear the real cause and effect, and big picture.
Giving up is wasting your time, but also necessary to find the true cause you didn't find yet.
Staying in the path is necessary only when there's trueness in that path.

moving out of my moms house, I know that doesnt seem like something to be proud of but I was extremely ill as a child and have OCD, so in my view that was one of my biggest achievement. I got a place  with my girlfriend.

I think my greatest achievements were just my personal progress.
Learning defeat, learning loss, grief, betrayal, heartbreak, broken trust, lost friendships, and then learning how to stand tall, and walk away from it all.
Especially learning to cut toxic people out of my life, and knowing how to stand by myself. Also, Learning about the many highs and lows, just learning all these life things...

And then just personal things, like figuring out who I am and just knowing and thinking about all this great stuff... It's just all an achievement for me. Just being aware, and just to keep on going and learning. Especially after the crap I've been through, I'm proud to keep going.

Two possibilities exist: Either we are all alone in the universe or we are not.
                                Both are equally terrifying.  -Arthur C. Clark

I once won an icecream eating contest. That was pretty far up there. Either that or learning to walk again.
