Hey, everyone! I made this account using a Temporary Phone No, from some site I don't remember, to safeguard my Privacy. I believe in Free Access to Resources. So, if you see any posts from this account Selling anything or trying to scam, they wouldn't be from me. Someone would have gained unauthorized access to this account. Best recourse to prevent such a thing would be to delete the account, but Forum doesn't provide that option.

An acceptance post.

I have spent the last few days being either hurt or angry. It was my second prelims failure, and one that I wasn't ready for. I am caught in the vicious cycle of blames, of how it was my circumstances that failed me. I know it is no use, and hence I write this post to accept, and let go.
The person I have been blaming the most is my father. He would not allow me to go to a library when I found it impossible studying at home. For no reason at all. I have been obedient so far, never did anything 'immoral' in the eyes of the society. And yet this. Plus, he would force me to get into a job, because it is so hard to get, and so in the 7 months that I had for this attempt, I prepared for three different exams.
That's what is hurting me, and making me angry. But this is not the complete picture. I could have gone to the library had I been a little more obstinate. I could have insisted him for a fully focused attempt all the same.
I know this post is rather negative, but I am writing it as a reminder of how I can indeed control my circumstances if I want to. I don't want to fall in this trap of cribbing ever again.
I accept my faults, and I choose to move on.

 @Lawstice @LetsGetThisBread  Hey.. saw you ppl in 2022 thread and sfg. I don't know much about you.. but this was my third attempt.. and I couldn't clear prelims again... I also gave 5 months to pre, followed sfg-1, did pyq, mocks and everything.. was very confident but couldn't clear again.. I am currently very very confused.. should I go full throttle one more time or should think about a job or something along with upsc this time. 
I just want to know in what direction are people like you thinking and what's your course of action.. so that I can gain some new perspective.


Personally i advocate a backup post 3 attempts. But after having got into one course i can tell you this much choose a backup that gives you time to study consistently as well. I had to skip 2022 primarily because of lack of time. Also if you haven’t cleared prelims despite having done everything I would personally advise you to not worry too much about it. Its just a matter of time before everything clicks into place. Just try to think about where you could have possibly gone wrong and then proceed :)

Always felt the lack of peer group in my 2021 attempt, moved to Delhi for 2022. Couldn't find any peer group or something, posted targets on thread for a while & then gave up. Want to make 2023 last, ready to give whatever it takes. Let's go full throttle.

Also,

Also am in the hub, would love to connect n discuss daily dukhs with you'll.  Let's do it!

2023 will most probably be my last attempt as well so hoping to really make it count

Hey this might be a good time to chat with your father about what you really need to clear the exam which is dedicated prep time. He might be the most amenable to listening at this time that this exam needs a certain dedicated time and focus.

@LetsGetThisBread Indeed. It's not just a good time, it is 'the' time I think. All this while I was simply victimising myself.

हताशा से एक व्यक्ति बैठ गया था

व्यक्ति को मैं नहीं जानता था

हताशा को जानता था

इसलिए मैं उस व्यक्ति के पास गया

मैंने हाथ बढ़ाया

मेरा हाथ पकड़कर वह खड़ा हुआ

मुझे वह नहीं जानता था

मेरे हाथ बढ़ाने को जानता था

हम दोनों साथ चले

दोनों एक दूसरे को नहीं जान ते थे

साथ चलने को जान ते थे।

So  lets be that invisible hand to each other as said in poem , walk together and keep pushing ourself and others .lets be the motivation for each other as said by Harivansh Rai Bachan ji
