I Wish I Had a Talent

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 121 People

    I envy people who can draw,

    sing, dance, or do anything cool. The only thing I'm kind of good at is writing, but even that is mediocre for me. I would love to dance, but I won't take any lessons. I feel like you either have a gift or you don't. I don't know what my gift is yet.

    I really wish that I had a talent

    that distinguished me from other people. I feel like I am a very normal person and there isn't anything especially special about me. I have a lot of good qualities but nothing really seems to stick out. I wish I was a good singer, dancer, etc. Or, I wish that I had hobbies that...

    Oh Well...

    I do lots of things during the week. I take guitar classes, drama classes, I go to the gym at least once a week, I go to a martial arts academy. Even so, I'm not satisfied. My goal in life is to be a singer, but my voice is so poor, it's not a good voice. I don't have an...

    Have You Found Yours?

    I am surrounded by talented people. I can really appreciate art, food and beverages. I feel I am somewhat of a good critic when it comes to literature, translations, current affairs. But I can't find a talent of my own. Most of my friends are incredible artists: writers, painters...

    Don't Think I Have One

    I'm not convinced I have a particular talent. I can't sing well, can't act, can't dance, don't have any very special hobbies or things I am good at. My brother's both do - Scott's the artist amongsy us and Michael is the smart one. Where does that leave me?

    Talent Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

    Perhaps you do have talent, perhaps it is just undiscovered.  Find a hobby a intrest study it do it love it.  Before you know it you may have a talent you never thought of before.  You can do it!
