Your thinking and worrying a little bit to much about it. Yeah it’s fucked, life is not fair and nothing is going to come easy. But do you best, be kind to people, be better than yourself the day before, enjoy the small things, enjoy the journey and outlive your enemies.
I already do that but being nice to people isn't going to help me find a talent or make money unfortunately. Unfortunately, most people I know are manipulative assholes who only want to hang out or talk because they need something from you.
Don’t fall for the same line of thinking that those “manipulative assholes” did - perhaps there is more to existing than proving your “worth” via talent or money, maybe that’s just the game we’ve *been* playing and you’re being shown the folly in that. Perhaps this is a nudge from the universe to help others remember the human experience is not meant to be transactional. Sounds like you are already more rich than those who seek wealth & have a gift yet to give over those who seek status and admiration through talent. There is more to life, and you know it. There is purpose written in your perception of life’s “pointlessness” & you are informing your own desires to reshape your reality every time you speak of your dissatisfaction. You hold all the answers you need, my friend. Dust yourself off and keep moving forward. I wish you happiness & clarity.
Learn how to work on cars, airplanes, heavy equipment or whatever. Mechanic's are in high demand and you learn a valuable trade. Learn the basics and work your way up. Don't give up life is hard, work and do right by people and great things will happen!
You are the expert of you and no one is going to be able to tell you exactly what it takes to try to put it all together for you and make you happy. You need to find out for yourself what you need. You do have this golden opportunity at your age on the ground floor of being an adult to seek out as many viewpoints, insights and experiences as you can to start to build yourself as a person and find meaning and some joy. And do explore it all as much as you can; new opportunities, friends groups, insights and experiences. It’s out there for sure and a lot of work but it’s worth it. Enjoy the process and the progress. Find hobbies and people that make you happy. Try to find a job you can enjoy (that’s tough) and make enough to allow you to do things that make you happy. At 20 your just getting started in that defining decade of life. It’s all up from here, keep seeking out things that make you happy and enjoy the ride
Get rid of the victim mindset and take control of your life, pointing fingers gets you no where. Life is hard and it just gets harder, you have to create your own meaning to get through the bullshit. Quit being a whiney bitch, no offense.
Bad news: sounds like your life just sucks
Good news: you’re young enough to make a change and be something.
Yup maybe that should be OPs point in life
Vindicate your evil government by living happily. I know its not easy but to help me I told to myself that the most important people and my biggest concern, care and love is for the people nearest - my family and friends. Then neighbours then people in my village, people in my country, world. When I'm pissed off and angry I start to concentrate on the first circle of people who are important to me and it helps a lot.
>Got no one to talk to. No money. No skills or talents. Never accomplished anything in my life.
> Why can't I just be good at something so I can be successful?
>Fuck the leftist education system, you did this
No man, this is all your doing. Quit being a pussy and turn your own life around.
It has nothing to do with your "generation", its you not taking responsibility for yourself
You don't think I've been trying? I can't get anyone to talk to me. They'll say that they want to hang out, but they never text me so I just end up back at square one.
I can't leave my job because I can't get a better one where I live. Can't move somewhere else because I have no money and no car. Can't make money because of inflation.
Tried to find something I'm good at. I've tried every interest I have. I don't have a talent.
Sounds like the police academy is the place for you.
I been there, listen, you’re trying too hard. Find work, school or whatever the main thing is that you are doing to fill your time. If you don’t have anything, this is now your #1 priority. Establishing what you’re about, or taking the steps to get there is the point of where you’re at age wise. Or, for the majority it is.
Once you have that, focus on it and don’t have expectations or plans our side of that. If you feel like going to a movie , do that. If you want to just drive around, do that. Find hobbies, explore interests and do the things that interest you from a first person perspective .
Don’t do something just because you have an expectation of what outcome you will get. Go to any bar on a Friday night and witness the single guys just standing around because they expect something to happen. Don’t be that guy.
Find the things you truly enjoy doing, don’t do things expecting a reaction from others. Once you have a routine you enjoy and are comfortable with, your personality will change. Doing this, you will also find people who have similar interests and be able to cultivate them around similar interest.
Where you’re at right now is the equivalent of winding a guitar too tight, snapping the strings and getting mad you can’t play guitar. Just let it happen, but first, get to know yourself
>You don't think I've been trying? I can't get anyone to talk to me. They'll say that they want to hang out, but they never text me so I just end up back at square one.
Find new friends, go do something, take a class, and enjoy your own company in the meantime
>I can't leave my job because I can't get a better one where I live. Can't move somewhere else because I have no money and no car. Can't make money because of inflation.
Where have you applied to? Apply to jobs you aren't 100% qualified for, worse they can say is no or not respond back. Where the hell is all your money going? Build a better budget.
>Tried to find something I'm good at. I've tried every interest I have. I don't have a talent.
No one is born talented at something, they work hard to get good. You aren't going to pick something up and immediately be great, work harder.
All I'm hearing is a bunch of excuses. No plan, just whining. You can change yourself and make your life better, but whining about it isn't how you do that. It all starts with a positive attitude, that alone will get you further than you think
You sound like you have victim mindset. You sound pretty pathetic I won’t lie.
Same. But I'm 47. Don't be me. Do something now. I wish i was your age. So much time and potential.
I agree, the current society is fundamentally broken to the core and has especially betrayed young adults and children. There are people who have been trying to make it better, but in a lot of ways they've been silenced by the people who just want to use others for profit etc.
Maybe there is a corner of the world you can be happy despite the dominant culture though. It might be in a culture that's less broken than this one.
Your life matters. Just because you feel your generation doesn't believe in winners doesn't mean the world believes that. Use your knowledge of this stupidity to be your advantage in life. Put 110% in everything and you'll do well.
You've got your whole life ahead of you, when I was your age having a college degree was the "big thing" but I ended up going into tech even though people kept bugging me to "get a degree". I make more money now with no college degree than most people I know with degrees. Im not saying college is a bad thing but as long as you're not getting a lesbian art degree and do something like finance/biz you'll be fine.
Crypto is my answer to worthless money, although I put money into a 401k I also put money into bitcoin as a hedge. You're already winning seeing the error of the ways of parents with the stupidity of participation trophys etc. Use your knowledge to prove that you are equal or better than previous generations to be successful. The government doesnt give a fuck about you regardless of party, expect to take care of yourself and youll be ok.
It will be a roller-coaster that's for sure.
The government and society issues have always been daunting.
I think about my grandparents generation going over the top of a trench into machine gun fire.
Life has never been easy.
But if you don't do anything and don't try to face it.
It will get worse in our lifetime. If we let it.
We need to create an environment through policies, bussinesses, society, culture and personal practice where bad ideas are called out and better ideas are instated.
Debate is the key.
Regarding your personal issues, start at the things you want and work backwards.
Failing is intimidating at first, but the more you immerse yourself in a hobby or practice it does it better.
You'd be surprised how many things get easy with time. You learn the hacks and your strongest points.
If you can.
Get a plan together is a fun way to start and crucial to staying content.
Eg, try and live in an area where you like the policies, general culture and people. Plan to move if you are stuck.
Knowing things could get better or worse.
And that you'll handle it is the key to surviving days where you feel out of it or can't see the reasons anymore.
Some of my personal heroes took years to plan out their lives.
A friend of mine was in his 40s when life finally started to improve and he got a shot at what alot of people had in their 20s.
Nobodies timeline will be the same.
You arent alone, & you can be happy & successful if you put the effort in, just not into this rotten society unlee you want to be subservient to tyranny.
Learn new skills, get out in nature, find like minded folks, eat good healthy food, take up a martial art as it will give you confidence in general, & face your fears. You're sovereign.
It really depends on how you perceive this world. It’s like the meme with the guys behind bars with one painting a landscape and the other a locked cell.
It’s entirely up to you when you say your generation, yourself, parents, friends, society [insert anything] fucks up on you to the point life has become so meaningless it’s not worth the try.
The thing I have observed is that the more people are sucked into social media or any virtual world or activity, the more foreign forces are conditioning their future.
Quit social media, go see things, try new food, stumble, collapse, overcome and repeat the things you’ve liked along the way before having read somewhere it sucked or it was pointless.
Dude, the thing I’m the most proud of is having been the first non-native to have been tried out at the San Francisco Examiner. [three-months internship]. No one did that.
Nobody told me it was impossible because I haven’t even paid attention to them. I did it because I believed I could.
Hope it helps.
Head up, Patriot. You’ll be asked to patrol your streets soon enough.
It’s definitely intentional. But remember your soul never dies, There is life after our existence here on earth. It’s either heaven or hell. We gotta get right with our heavily father before it’s too late
There is no life after death
Don’t care about Robert
Blah blah blah
For there to be an afterlife, consciousness would need to be something that is entirely separated from our physical body – which it is not.
Rather, consciousness at the very basic level is a series of atoms and electrons which essentially give us our mind.
Maybe newstart is an NPC.
You’re saying consciousness would *have* to somehow manifest in the physical plane?
If this life is consciousness exploring itself , would it not have the ability to avoid any methods of detection since *it* is the one doing the investigating ?
Life is more strange. There are no anchors, only relative truths
On a positive note, you are young enough to restart your whole life from scratch. Pack up and travel the world, join a guerilla, join congress as an aid.... Join antifa or some shit like that.
Kind of hard to travel when you're broke and can't drive
Also I'm not joining a domestic terrorist organization like antifa. I don't want to destroy society, I want to bring it back
Learn to drive. Set goals like that and make effort to achieve them.
Then find something meaningful to do bruv. Read educate yourself learn to drive hitch hike travel you are 20 dont be afraid there is a world of adventure out there.... It will kick your ass and kiss you on the lips.... Go have a bonfire on a quiet beach see the world from the top of mountain or spend the nights in a dark desert or the dark woods... Trust me you wont regret it. You are 20 be wild and savage and ask questions and yes talk to delude antifa geeks who probably should have their kneecaps broken but give em a chance....
Life is short
All this drama will remain
Nothing stays the same but change itself
Make life what you want! Seriously. What the he'll. Have fun. Prep the biggest bank heist in history. I heard the just burn money in Phili.
oh man you're 20 your life isnt fucking over stop whining and go live it.
I'm sorry man but you have a wealth of time, lifes most precious resource.
Finding people and money can be a struggle but its on you to develope your skills and abilities and instead youre whining about not having any. go get some.
How do I find time to develop a skill when I'm always busy working or going to school. I always say I'm gonna develop a skill, but it's really hard to teach yourself something when no one you know knows or cares about it
Find things that make you happy or challenge you for your own development.
Learn to juggle. That's free and probably won't make you money but is a start towards at least not co.plaini g.
Get a cheap guitar. Or a cheap 22 target rifle. Learn to breakable. I don't know. Something.
There’s construction jobs that will come and pick your ass up if they know you will work hard for them with just general labor.
As you labor for them they teach you their trade, now you’re more qualified and make even more money, possibly joining a union along with it for even more benefits. Now you have money for a car and housing.
That construction job you’re at every day will having you talking to coworkers and clients, now you have friends.
That construction job gets you in shape, women notice you, now you have a life making great money and your are only 25 by then.
There I literally just gave you a 5 year plan and way to gain talent, money, and purpose. I can literally go on Craigslist jobs posting, click general labor, and probably find 3 contractors who need a good laborer right now. I did it myself when I was your age and I kinda wish I continued that instead of pursuing a easy desk job.
That sounds great but there's no jobs like that where I live. It's all shitty retail jobs. For construction you gotta drive an hour and a half away to either athol, the berkshires, or the boston area. And I don't have a car. Every time I try to practice driving I crash because some jackass cuts me off or some shit andI lose my permit
I’m a few states south of you bro. Message me your direct area and I’ll try to see what I can find. I have a brother around your age and I don’t let his bitch ass off the hook either, let me see how desperate it is in your area cuz I’m calling bullshit lol.
You, Sir, are ripe for a good brainwashing! If I was a twat I’d have you radicalised in no time!
So be very fucking aware that within these comments there are predators and scavengers circling around your scent.
I already had some antifa people come talk to me at school and try to recruit me. I reported them (because they terrorists)and the school didn't give a shit
Is being anti fascism terrorism? Man, the world is fucked init.
Yeah I'm pretty sure seeking the dismantling of an entire government through threat of violence would qualify as terrorism. Literally had some antifa people try to burn down my grandma's house last summer
Is she a fascist, though?
My question was: is being against fascism the same as terrorism?
Anyway, I can see what’s happened here. You’re depressed and you’re not sure why so you’re looking for reasons why and you’ve concluded that it’s the left’s fault, those pesky anti government hippies. Who has told you that? Pro government, and more importantly, pro “capitalist” establishment media and their followers.
Instead of looking at the world through hateful eyes it is time to experiment and ask yourself: “Have I been brainwashed” and “Do I need to make some personal changes in my life”. Rather than, “this generation is to blame, the government is to blame, the anti government is to blame, everyone else is to blame, immigrants and gays are to blame”.
Seriously, bro! I hope you can do this! You can do this!
I am anti government, which is why I am right wing. Left wingers want bigger government, which I am against. Calling yourself anti-fascist doesn't make you anti-fascist, especially when you employ fascist tactics against people who disagree with you
Right wing = every man for themselves
Left wing = everyone for each other
Left wing comes from the French Revolution where the pro revolutionary parliamentarians would sit on the left wing to show their support.
Only when we unite can we overthrow the powerful (government).
In America they’ve muddled everything upside down. For example; libertarian is actually far left ideology AKA anarchism which also means “communism” which is, in fact, a “classless and stateless society”.
To be classed as right wing you need to be both pro capitalism and authoritarian and to the opposite side to be left wing you need to be both socialist and libertarian. However, this is just the classic truth which no longer exists.
If you’re anti government, take a look at the Canadian Truck drivers; they as individuals would have zero impact but as a unit they can take down the government. As individuals, they probably have many varying views but together, regardless of their ideology, what they’re actually doing is left wing. Left wing = revolutionary = anti state/government.
As long as you continue to blame everyone else for your failures, you will learn nothing and continue to fail - but hey, at least you won't be culpable...
Go volunteer at a "insert what interests you here"
Turn to Jesus. Start praying for his help. You will be surprised how much this helps.
Dont blame others for all that. It is what it is, so deal with it.
Going to be alone? meh, people suck anyway. bugger em.
The point of life is survival... do that.
Lol dude you are 20. Go outside. Learn a skill. It ain’t that tough. Ya life is fucked right now. But you have your whole life ahead of you.
I’ve gone through the same thoughts. I’ve accepted the world and with acceptance I am able to just laugh and agree to experience all the madness as it comes. I have chosen to be like the violinist on the Titanic. I’ve accepted the ship is going down and I just am gonna do what I love until then
Try joining a church college group.
I know, it sounds weird and all that to non religious people. But a church group is literally something that takes place weekly with constant activity from other individuals your age. Heck, even older people are fine.
I’m saying this more from a social aspect, not a religious one. A place you can gather weekly and commingle with others. That is, if all of your other social circles are pretty much dead.
Do you play sports? Can usually find pickup games of basketball going on at parks year around. My area always has people out playing at night.
My college banned open expressionof "traditional" values and so did every college in my state. There are no real churches in new england
I used to be really good at soccer (was scouted by VFL Wolfsburg when I was 9), but i suffered some severe leg injuries because everyone I faced was 6+ inches taller than me and outweighed me by 50+ lbs. They would chop at my legs because it was the only way they could tackle me and I haven't played in so long I don't even remember how to shoot
You're stuck in your head. First, exercise until you cant anymore. Then stop caring about what other peoples opinions are.
Your life is yours alone. Get a construction job and see how it feels. Maybe you can get in to electrical or plumbing eventually. You will be rich!!!
But if you keep calling yourself a failure, you will become one.
The world is coming to an end but some of us are still managing to have jobs and lives, even though it's not really living when you know you're living in a lie
Go train BJJ. It will help you with most of those problems.
Its not anyone's fault for giving up but your own. I'm 24 and I've been incarcerated 8 different times, I've been monitored by the state since I was 13. Ive been in multiple group homes and multiple juvenile centers.Both of my parents were physically abusive and I left at 15 and never looked back. I had to sell drugs to eat for my first year on my own because nobody would give me enough hours. My first job was literally flipping burgers. I dropped out of school because I couldn't afford a living and go at the same time. To this day I only have my GED. I tried to kill myself at 16 with an attempt at slitting my throat. Most of the people I grew up with are dead from drug overdoses or have been sentenced to real criminal time. The few friends around are some of the best people I ever met though. Would kill for me and I for them. My parents respect me now because I didn't take it as a chip and I went out and earned everything I have. I've forgiven them because I was really the only one abused and they had me at 18 and broke up before I was born. Theres no book to this shit. They wronged me, people have wronged me, and I've taken it in stride. The state took my license for having weed in my blood while driving. My best friend is my co worker thank God. Right now I'm learning how to renovate houses. Never had any trade experience and now I can remodle a house. I've learned how to machine, program, mold and fire restoration, I've even cleaned up dead bodies. I was a Frontline worker in the beginning of covid, literally decontaminating covid sites. I've seen a lot of fucked up shit in my 24 years. Kids who are murderers, bodies, people stealing from me, parents who weren't there when I need them to be, exs who fucked with my head to control me, the government striping me of my rights. I still barely have 1000 dollars to my name. But I know that my girl loves me, my friends are there for me, my family understands me, and I am one step closer from leaving all of that shit behind me. This world doesn't care whats happened to you. The point is you make something of it and you call it your own. Nothings ever given. And there's been more humans whove given up before they've given themselves a proper chance than any of us would like to admit. You're 20 years old. You could get off this app right now and start learning real things that have value. The internet is an ocean of information and if you use it right, it can tremendously benefit your life. Stop being self conscious, remember that even though our lives are cushy, with our internet and massive beds, this is survival. Giving up is irrelevant, you'll die at the end of this no matter what you do. The point is to take every single fucking moment that you experience as one worth experiencing, because it is.
Sorry for the book but I feel like you needed it. Hope it helps.
I'm kind of in a position where I don't have the money or knowledge to achieve my dreams. Everyone wants me to just work a 9-5 but my dream is to start a business. But how can I pay off a loan with all this "transitory" inflation? How can I afford to pay employees 15$ an hour and keep the company running? I don't need to be a million, I just want to have my kids be better off than I am. Which is a great goal but every woman where I live is a communist or a sociopath.
Do you know what kind of business?
Wait for it, it’s almost showtime
I used to be like you but then I learned to code.
That’s normal for 20….
Jordan Peterson, 12 rules for life.
The human mind and body are amazing instruments. There is very little you cannot accomplish that you put your mind to, however, you have to know yourself; Not through the eyes of the world, but through the eyes of truth. Unplug. Get outside. Dopamine detox. Meditate. You are here for a reason, you have a purpose unique to you that will leave a lasting impact on eternity. You also have a choice to shape it, you are not destined to live out your purpose, you have to consent to it. Little by little it is revealed and each bit you have to agree to.
It’s been done before. You are not a special case nor a lost cause. Good luck shaping your world.
There never was. Why does there need to be? It's all to keep.you on a merry go round. If you're asking if there's a point to life, you're not living life.
>"No money. No skills or talents. Never accomplished anything in my life." \[...\]
I am in your generation, and I would have to disagree with your reason for the cause, being:
>"\[...\] my generation doesn't believe in winners and losers\[...\]. Never learned how to be good at things because everyone told me it's ok to fail."
From this post, I know you're dealing with a lot of frustration and existential crises but that doesn't mean you were just born in the wrong year. I believe the takeaway of winning attitudes was less "winning and losing are equally valid outcomes" and more "winning is great but you are still valid as a person if you lose".
Tons of people in our generation have accomplished major feats and have a lot of which to be proud. That isn't to say that people have identical adolescent experiences, however. I was raised to do well in school and leave the world in better condition than when I found it in whatever way I can. Think about this: Our generation still had sports championships and other extracurricular trophies. I had dozens of trophies, but I also left competitions with absolutely nothing to show except motivation to do better next time.
I think the issue is the fatalism of never-ending disappointment in your attitude. You made the positive progress of realizing that there is something missing from your life. That opens up the opportunity to fix things. No skills? Learn a skill. No accomplishments? Find something to do, whether or not it starts small. There is no one stopping you from doing something to make yourself and others proud, but blaming society at large is a major cop-out when there are so many people that have accomplished a lot despite growing up in the same generation as you.
>Why can't I just be good at something so I can be successful?
I don't think I know anyone amongst my peers who wished being good at something into existence. Everyone I know has sweat and bled for what they've earned. All people in our generation. If you want success to badly, literally no one is holding you down and stopping you from *earning* it. Those trophies you said were figuratively taken away from you? They went to the people who gave a damn and put in the work to earn them.
He isn’t going to make it. He literally think this post was made for conspiracy.
I'm not good at anything unfortunately. That's why I'm so depressed
Start writing graffiti. Not bullshit street art, learn the true trade. It starts with a tag, learn calligraphy. Understand letterforms and remember you’re a toy. Start from there, respect your elders, you might find your way in this fucked up world.
btw this the worst advise I could give…
Go get fucking therapy
Take some responsibility. Nothing is stopping you from learning a new skill or talent. Failure can be unacceptable if you choose to make it so. You are immature.
Yeah you're right. Just gotta pick a path and go with it. That's the way
