The only way you’ll ever fail the people around you or yourself is if you give up. If you get back on your feet and you try again, you’re not failing, even if the result seems to be no different than the first. What’s important is that you didn’t just call quits. What matters is that you decided to take another chance at it. You’ll find out that in time, things will work out and you’ll get more opportunities. Eventually, you will get what you want. Even if things don’t look so great right now, it doesn’t mean life will always be like this. There will be better days, I promise. Hang in there.
I get my energy from fat, both dietary and stored body fat. At 9 calories per gram, fat is the densest source of energy. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but humans tend to store it on their bodies. That’s not just for show, you know. We actually store it in our bodies as energy for later, for leaner times, for when food isn’t available. Fat is the ideal energy source for life’s daily activities; walking, working, even going for a hike or a light jog all access the oxidative, or fat-based energy pathway. Carbs only really come into play when you’re doing repeated bouts of intense exercise, like sprint intervals or high-intensity endurance training. But for just about everything else? Fat is king.
