No matter how much I try, I just feel so useless..


I'm sucking at my job, and I'm giving up on the prospect o looking or another one 'cause I'm becoming convinced that I'll suck at that too.

And I can't seem to get anything right anyhere else..I feel like an embarassment to myself and my family and everyone that knows me.

I commit myself to things..I try but I just suck.

I can't help being useless at everything and I don't know why.

Recently I've tried starting a load of turns and commitments..but I still feel like I'm at point one.


What the f*ck is wrong with me? I don't know where to go anymore...

Become a Buddhist monk.
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

ALL HAIL CELESTIA

you don't suck at anything, you just feel like you do. You tell yourself you suck, and you believe it. Don't believe it. Hang out with your friends, keep playing guitar or bass or whatever, keep thinking positive about yourself.

What is it you do for a job?

This.

Not sure if the pit is the best place for this but someone made a thread asking if people ever feel like dying. Turned out fine.

I'm working with my Dad's forest/grass/wood/fence/etc company..
Iì's long to get into the whole thing..but to cut it sort, the job ranges rom cutting grass on the roads, cutting down trees, fencing to other various outside jobs.

With the grass I'm perfectly fine..mostly it's the forest work..the last job we did, I just found it hard to understand it fully, and I never feel as if I did was enough, or good.

I'm always feeling like I jsut don't get things quick enough, and recently as if I'm just not cut out or anything.

I was recently going through some stuff and I guess I just had had enough of feeling hopeless and lost and useless and so I just decided I had to be positive. It's easier said than done, for sure, but it's not the first time where I had to decide to be more positive and then my life just got better from there.

One thing that helps me is writing. I don't write poetry or stories per se, but I just write out my thoughts, just plain thinking. Alot of time we're so imprisoned by our thoughts and we're thinking them at such an automatic pace taht we can't really see what they are but if slowdown and just write we're able to step outside and see our thoughts from another perspective.

It's sort of like therapy- talking to a therapist or something, but it's all private.

I've found I've opened up alot just by writing things down and letting them go and going back and reading them over.

If you just write how helpless you feel over and over, eventually you'll realize it's crazy and that this world is to amazing to feel that way and there's something you can do about it.

Also, I find staying busy helps- you don't give yourself time to dwell on your problems. If I give myself a project on my days off, like writing a song or practicing guitar or organizing the house, I feel good.

I once read that life is a balance of creation and consumption. It's easy to be happy when you're creating and giving and it's easy to be sad when all you're doing is taking in things.

So you'll find a correlation in how happy you are based on that ratio. If you spend your days writing music or building a shed or something or making art or spending time with your family, you'll be more happier than on the days where you're in bed, watching tv or on the internet all day (granted those days have their place).

You are being hard on yourself. I've felt the same way so I can grasp what's going through your mind. Here's what you do: Ask questions. Always ask for help. Ask for someone to repeat the job detail to you or have it in some form of writing.

Was it really just that one job or every job you've done that's got you? You sound like you know what you're good at it ("with the grass I'm perfectly fine") and the forest job was just a bit different. Go back to asking questions and for help.
We're all alright!

I will say if you're ever feeling like you're not doing something good enough in a job, your boss will tell you, straight up. If they're not saying you're doing anything wrong, you're probably not. They may not be positive or encouraging, telling you you're doing a good job. Doing your best job is expected, so sometimes your boss won't say anything.

But I believe this is a bigger problem, you seem bored or depressed, probably both.

I will not suggest suicide. Do drugs instead. Helpful drugs. Like anti-depressants.

Don't give up man, it'll get better.
Eventually you'll find something you're passionate about and then just focus on that.
As far as work is concerned, find something you really like doing, (it may take some time) but staying at a shitty job because it's convenient will get you down.
Be positive man.

I don't know where to go anymore...

Sometimes, when you reach that point, what you need to do is just start anew.

A fresh start, heck, even some time off might help.

It's a tough decision to make, and definitely shouldn't be done rashly, but if you're feeling stuck and like the world is crashing down on you, sometimes the best decision is just to step to the side, let everything crash down, and just go in a different direction.

I agree with whoever suggested joining the Army. I did a couple years ago and it's done wonders for me. Kicked me into shape, my finances are straightened out, they taught me a very cool job and at the end of the day I'm proud of it. Granted I probably won't stay in, but I don't regret a second of it.

Dont take drugs for this, you just need a confidence boost. Ask friends if they can get you a job so you can quit the one you are at. It's always better to work with a friend since they can help you with whatever you may need.

Is your dad giving you shit about it? If not, why be so hard on yourself for no reason? You're probably doing an ok job but you're being too critical on yourself.
