    I don't have any special skills

    or interests. I fail at everything I do. I'm overshadowed by my sister and her creativity; I'm just boring in the eyes of my family. I'm just the one with good grades. I feel like a failure, a quitter. What do I have to live for? I shouldn't have ever been born.
