It's tough, GJ. I mostly did transactional law and thus the stakes weren't as high (although the dollars at stake were obscene). Once outside the legal profession, I did have several things I poured my all into. Most, fortunately, came up aces, but the reverses stung enough to make me question my value, abilities and choice of toothpaste.
You already have a good attitude about it, even at the moment of the crisis. This speaks well for your ability to weather the storm. As for the case itself, don't feel too badly. I don't know Italian bankruptcy law, but most of that jurisprudence, wherever it originates, is designed to allow the institutional creditor to take what is left to the detriment of the unsecured creditors, the shareholders and the debtor. Courts will often reach "result oriented" decisions.
Finally, yes, in game as a big replay runs, my heart is pounding. Fear and anticipation mix and seize control of my faculties. Months of hard work are decided in a 20 minute movie. Nerve-wracking stuff but it's why I love the game. It gets the feel of the war right, IMHO, with a long buildup culminating in a decisive result. Remember too that as awful as the low points feel, the moment of a well executed victory feels as sweet, and part of the joy of the victory is the relief of avoiding defeat, at least for today.
Thanks Crib, really appreciated your words!
Think bankruptcy low is more or less the same in most of the western countries. And yes, "result oriented" decisions are a very "kind" way to define them
This game really helps with RL imho. I'm pretty sure this game has thought me a lot of things. To accept a defeats and to go on, in this kind of games, i think helps you to do the same in RL...at least to a certain degree
Great game. Great life
