End of a dream

.
This article is pretty much a vent, to let myself get out some of the things that have going around my head the last few days, so i apologise if this isn't what you want to read and understand any negative ratings.

I started my own business in 2015, fulfilling a dream of owning my own Tabletop gaming store. But sales haven't reached the point they needed to, debts are building up and i haven't got a way to clear them so it's reached the point where i'm selling off stock at a heavy discount and heading towards closing down.

I have to be honest, this is devastating for me. I feel like a complete failure in life and i have no idea where i go from here. I've got some temporary work which will hopefully tide me over for a while, but this was my lifes goal and i've failed at it.

I have two children, who sadly live away from me and i don't even know how i will look them in the eye now. They'll know that their dad is a loser, and i've got nothing for them to inherit or follow my footsteps in.

Life just seems to be a downward spiral right now.

Sorry for the negative rant, it's not the kind of content i want to write and it's hopefully not going to have any follow ups. I just needed to get this out there.

If you've read this far, thank you.

ze2000 Money is just money. The worse can happen is they take your stuff but you will recover sooner or later.
Closing a business doesn't mean you lost. Means you made a mistake or you just didn't have luck this time. Do not get too obsessed about it, it's that: just business.

Having said that, have you thought about all the ways you can sell that stock using internet or similar?

Bilston Those things can happen to anybody and you don't have to consider yourself a loser.
in life there are positive and negative experiences that may help you in the future. Try to be positive.

bee Sounds like you are doing the best you can. You should be proud of yourself that although your business didn't work you are still going out there and doing other jobs instead of locking your self away from the world and burying your head in the sand. I think your children will be very proud of you knowing their father had a great bussiness however the world was not ready for it yet. I think you are a great inspiration and very innovational.
