Startup: the darkness before dawn

    Many of us here have been through this. Starting a business always means knowing the best and worst of the society that surrounds us, especially the bad.

    It is that stage of losing friendships, of fighting not to forget the most important things, of getting sick, of making sacrifices, of receiving all kinds of attacks from locals and strangers, of knowing who your friends really are, to make alliances with harmful people, to see anxiety's and depression's face. We are the most stubborn people in the world, because only different makes the change we believe in.

    It's hard, sometimes cruel, we feel that the world becomes very unfair to us and our best response is always to move on, until we rest to continue.

    I really want this thread serve as a circle of support among those of us who are not really in competition with each other. Tell us about your cases, let us vent. And please, without toxic or indirect comments to others users. Let's be big boys and girls. B)

    I guess that my only comment is that starting up a business does not have to be as filled with negative consequences as you describe above. Proper planning, setting correct expectations for all stakeholders, and having a good business idea can go a long way to making the experience more fun and exciting than brutally cruel and unfair.

    Don't get wrapped up in the darkness part that you'll need medical professionals to get you untangled. You can find story after story of people who lost their mind and health trying to make their "business" work. I personally knew a guy who started making custom furniture / cabinets when he was 23, by the time he was 24 he had a massive heart attack due to stress (trying to meet deadlines).

    But yeah, venting pent up emotions can be good, I suppose. Will it help your business? Probably not.

    I think this is a good idea. At one time, when I tried to start doing my own thing, there was no support
