    I'm over 40. I have no job.

    No friends. I pretty much just watch **** all day while ******* it. I had so many dreams when I was younger. I used to tell myself I'd be somebody someday. Somebody important. Now look at me. I get money from the government for being retarded. What is my life good for? Why am I...

    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...

    The feeling of me being a failure hit me some

    years ago when I was sitting with one of my best friends and we were talking about the things that we're good at. At some point I made a whole list of things that he was really good at but when I asked him to mention some of my strong points he had no idea what to say. Since I...

    My tears fall... Faster

    I failed college, have no friends,

    no money, have no one to talk to, never been loved(cause I'm ugly and a pig). I'm always being compared to my successful siblings. I'm just stuck at being the center of jokes of my school mates who are still in college. :'( please kill me.

    Sometimes I feel like an absolutely failure

    even when I try. I put in 110% of effort into everything I get almost nothing back but a slap in the face. I don't know what to do anymore.

    The definition of failure~ I have no excuse.

    I don't fail for want of effort or even opportunity yet I still manage to do so. What makes it worse, what turns it into complete failure is that I even fail at failing. Oh, it's possible. I've tried to give up several times- on education, on relationships, on self...
