It seems like life isn't for everyone.

2207 40
I'm not suicidal or anything, but it's just something I've came to notice. Some people try their best. They try so hard, but the truth is some people just can't do it. They can't reach their dreams or whatever they hope to be. I've heard all the positive "you can do it" shit for years. It's not true. Some people just aren't born to be successful in life. No matter how positive they try to be, it won't change anything. I've realized this recently and it has honestly depressed me. I already have depression and anxiety, but knowing that some people are just fucked...it just sucks. So, to the people out there who are succeeding in life, appreciate it and enjoy it. Because it's a feeling a lot of people will never know. Like they say, you're either born a success or you're not.

I don't know you at all, but listen dude.

Life isn't something to be taken for granted, we all know it comes to an end. Dreams are strong motivators to make the most out of the short time we have here. If you feel like you can't achieve what you want, then you don't want it bad enough. Struggling through the hard times of self doubt are some of the most humbling times a human being can experience. You need to dig real deep if you truly want to be successful. Stay away from the negative thoughts, because they do nothing to push you forward in life, they only halt your progress. Look at the people who are successful... you think it came easy for them? Hell fucking no.

A quote from without a doubt one of the greatest fictional characters ever created, Gandalf...

"All we have to do is decide what to do with the time that is given to us."

Instead of posting on here go work for your future goals to come true, 24 hours a day isn't enough time for how hard you should be running towards your dream. Go get it dude, fuck what any motherfucker says to put you down or tell you you can't do it. Success is the best revenge.

Now that's true. I've been taught that life is what you make of it and even when you're not successful, you still have something remarkable about yourself that gives you meaning.

Life knocks you down you can keep getting back up, success is rare for some but that won't stop anyone from trying. :cheer

i can kinda see where your coming from, i think.. and ive heard it many times before. it sounds cheesy, but for every win there's also a loss, and out of all people who exist, everywhere, so few will reach success and get to live their dream. i'm usually optimistic, but there is no denying realities that existed long before i was alive.

on the bright side, you can try and keep going, it might just pay off ? :) age and mortality are not good to dwell on imo, so the idea of dying old and poor or scummy is out of the question. thats my motivation anyway.

I try so hard. At everything. I tried to work on following my dream, I keep failing and embarrassing myself. I try to socialize and meet people, but people seem to not want to talk to me. I try to find a relationship, but it seems most women think I'm weird or something even though I try my best to come off as confident and friendly. It's just pointless for some people. It really sucks especially when you see all your friends to be doing fine in all these areas. Then here I am. Some people say it might be something I am doing, but idk. Even if it is, I obviously can't fix it. I've tried so hard to make sure I am perfect. It doesn't work.

This is all bullshit. The reason you don't succeed is because you think it's too hard and you can't do it and then proceed to give up and then proceed to post the above because life's "too hard" for you.

Stop trying to be perfect because you'll always think it's too hard if you expect no flaws.

Like they say, you're either born a success or you're not.
Those people who say that are fucking losers who have given up on their dreams.

One of my personal mottos when I'm feeling blue

Life is shit...but it's better than being dead
“The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”Socrates
Both very true. If you like even one or two things in life, and it's very likely you do even if you hate the rest, it's possible to structure your life to focus on those things.

It's true, no matter how much people try to claim otherwise.

What if you're born to a sadistic bastard who locks you in the basement and rapes you daily? Should you live your life that way just because suicide is wrong?

What if you come down with a terminal illness that leaves you in constant pain? Should you live your life that way just because suicide is wrong?

What if you simply don't enjoy life? What if you hate everything? What if the very thought of living another day makes your knees give out? Should you live that way just because suicide is wrong?

I've lost family members to suicide and I've come to realize that there's nothing you can do about it. People call suicide selfish because you hurt your loved ones, but how selfish is it of us to want our loved ones to suffer every waking moment to keep us happy? It's a shitty reality, but life is far from perfect.

Seeing as how you're making excuses, this is for you (this is relevant to way more than working out):

Watch this one and stop being a bitch:

edit: especially this one:

I feel the exact same way about myself.

I was in your situation a few years ago, OP. Didn't know where I really wanted to go in life and had the "I'm not going to be successful" view point.

The people who can't be successful honestly just aren't trying hard enough most of the time. They're not willing to find something they're passionate about and go for it they instead go for a safe 9-5 job where they have a shitty boss who hates them and they hate their boss and that's fine for some people. Some people love that structure and the routine of doing something every day and doing it the exact same way but most do not and that is where the feeling of failure stems from.

Here is a good example I heard from a motivational speaker. I'm paraphrasing here but he talks about how you as a person are in a tunnel and at the end of the tunnel is everything you ever wanted. He talks about how you need to move towards that goal and it may take weeks, months, years, decades or even centuries but you need the mindset that you're going to get to the end of the tunnel no matter what.

In closing, find something you're passionate about and follow that dream. Don't be one of those 50 year old's making 30,000 dollars a year in a law office wondering "what if?". Have dreams even if they are a little outlandish or "crazy" and don't let anyone tell you that you cannot.

Oh, and become so passionate about something that success is your only option. Something you're so passionate about that you're in bed at 3 AM obsessing over some small little thing that is stopping you from being better. When you have a thought process like that when you can't go and take a shower without being excited and passionate about your next day of work that is when you've won the game my friend. When you are in that thought process where you obsess and you try to perfect your work because you love it is when you become talented and when you become talented you have the means for your dreams to come true.

Well you are right. Not everyone in life is successful. There are homeless people, poor people or just people who can't afford nice things. It all depends on the decisions you make.

A lot of these seemingly "less successful" (by society's standards) people are actually very content with their lives, because they have come to accept and enjoy their existence, the result of such a low probability that you just have to acknowledge yourself as "entitled" to even be here, especially to be born in an environment where you aren't actively oppressed and can actually feel joy at times.

One of the keys to happiness is the realization that you do not need to appeal to "social standards", because those have been originally established in order to cause discontent among the people so that they will become a more willing and beneficial workhorse for the nation. Not for your own benefit, but quite the opposite. It's a race that will never end, because you will always feel jealousy towards another for having something that you do not. You will want what somebody else has and will not feel whole until you have it. That is the essence of unhappiness in a material world.

In a modern society, people essentially cause their own depression with crude, flawed logic and unrefined, nihilistic philosophies (essentially the beginner stage for any "thinker"), further enhanced by the commercialism and materialism of their surrounding culture.

Back in the day, the guy who plowed the fields had no time to think about such bullshit, he just enjoyed the fact that he was alive and contributing positively to his environment, in whatever way he could. In simple lifestyles often reside the simple answers to seemingly complex questions.
