Yes, I'm A Complete Failure...

I'm 42 years old, I live in a rented one bedroom cottage and I'm unemployable because I'm over-qualified for job training schemes and low income jobs and my skills and experience are obsolete and useless and my university degree are in subjects that have no value. I've never had a girlfriend, never had kids and only had one full time job that lasted three and a half years. I tried suicide once but chickened out at the last second (my self-preservation was greater than my will to die). I have no talents and the few hobbies I do have are of no interest to most people and I'm not that good at them. I wrote a novel that only a few people bought. Most people think I'm boring and ugly.

You're not the only one :(
I'm too.
Ive tried hard to accomplish my goals...
tried to be a good person... But I'm just a douchebag, unable to make things work.
Sometimes I think I don't want to live anymore but I know if I kill myself I would hurt the people I love.
I guess some of us are just destined to fail and fail and fail.

Amazing that you wrote a novel. keep writing!

You're only as unemployable as you think you are! The truth is you have a lot of skills and experience that are very useful! Now you're degree is obsolete you are no longer so over qualified! You just need to say the right things in your covering letter and CV (i.e. resume). Get guidance on what to write it changes EVERYTHING!

Good Start, now you have nothing to loose and everything to gain. Any accomplishment from this point forward is a success story. The question is how are you going to go about you new success story?

If you are only 42 you are lucky.<br />
You say you have university degrees and no matter how unimportant they may seem to you at least you got to university.<br />
All praise to you for writing a novel my God what an achievement.<br />
How do you know people think you are boring and ugly?<br />
Have they told you this?
