I Am a Complete Failure

    I just told the only job I've ever liked

    that I'm done. Why? My job required me to travel a lot, but paid relatively well. But we still couldn’t pay bills because of the child care costs we incurred (between $300-400/wk). I tried adjusting the schedule to reduce that, but the damage was already done. My wife had to...

    I've just accepted that I'm a horrible failure.

    I am just an expendable piece of society being the average white male. In school were taught that minorities are worth more and that women are always going to be successful. There's a reason why suicide rates are up for males. I've given up on life because it sucks so much...

    Really Not Much to Say About This

    I've failed in all the important areas of my life.  After awhile, you kind of get used to it. I'm not afraid of failure, and I'm pretty at peace with it.  So, don't try to take this away from me. Here's an incomplete list: son parent spouse...

    One thing with me. I wish I was able to only

    say the right and necessary thing. I can't speak without feeling wrong. I try to stop messing up with people. I'm just terrible at talking. I think I should just answer questions, and then stop talking, but when I try I mess up.

    Too Late To Change Things Now

    I spent my life taking care of others and trying to please people so they'd like me. Now I'm alone. Never had time or made the right connection for a family of my own, so no kids, no spouse. Parents are dead and the fallout took my brother and sister, who are years older than I...

    I keep losing everything.

    I left my phone in a public bathroom, my wallet was stolen at a bus stop, and I lost my keys three times this month. I have to pay for that ****, over and over again. The absence of all that missing crap is a constant reminder that I suck at even the basic tasks. Total failure.

    I've lost all ability to connect with other

    people. I am unable to truly show who I really am to another person because I am sure they will reject me, a set back I'm not sure I can handle. The only true failing lies in failing to try; in this sense I am truly a failure.
