I disagree (edit: with Pinckle Wicker, not Glebe). Also, even if you have been shit, you're well aware of it, which makes you better than 95% of people.

Yeah i'm in the same boat, I've been trying to figure out what my brain is wired for and good at; its not language learning, numbers, creativity, reasoning and logic etc nothing. I didn't think that was even possible unless having serious mental disabilities.

At least you've figured out what it is you want to be good at.

Even if it's only being extremely good at being shit, that's win in anyone's book.  It's a win.

Nobody else gives a shit if you're good at something, why should you?

The problem is we're still just monkeys; we're not equipped to deal with any of this. The monkey mind is having a breakdown.
We should be sat in a tree eating mango, and flinging our own shit at whatever is the monkey equivalent of Nigel Farage. The whole thing's got way out of hand.

I'll admit, you don't seem to be very good at explaining what's wrong.

Better that than knowing how mega-ace you are at everything but not giving enough of a fuck to even bother your arse, believe me.

You just have to find what you're good at; in some cases its building a useless robot for picking up dog shit.

If you're shit at a hobby, do you still enjoy doing it? Because I'm not very good at my hobby but I still enjoy it and that's what's most important. If you're shit at your job... are you still getting your work done? Are you not fired yet? Is it keeping your lights on? Because you can be competent at your job and not be outstanding.

Get really good at one small thing, that's my advice. For example, get really good at making omelettes. Not just a bit good, really good. Then invite people round to eat omelettes. People will say, crikey, this omelette is the opposite of shit. You will be carried aloft on waves of glory and sedan chairs etc.

"Fucking hell, pancreas has invited us over for tea again.  I honestly never thought I'd tire of eggs, but it's omelette every single fucking time.  'Oooohhh, a REAL treat I've got for you tonight!' he says, and I get all excited, but then he walks into the dining room with another fucking omelette and the only difference is it's sat in a bowl made of ice or it's got some fucking microherb that you can't even taste sat on top of it.  'Eat it before it melts!' he laughs.  I'll fucking eat him before he melts..."

And the other thing, of course, is to ignore the haters. They're just jealous of your omelettes, that's all.

The best advice that I can offer is to never try your best. I never really have an issue with failure as I never try very hard.

pancreas: "so this cunt - I think his name's Stephen - keeps moaning about my AMAZING omelettes, so I says to him 'well why don't you invite me to your place and YOU cook me a fucking omelette if you think you're so amazing!'  Anyway, the next day I went over and he was fucking around in the kitchen for what felt like hours, and he FINALLY stumbles in with a big smug grin on his face, and do you know what he's served me?  Scrambled eggs.  Scrambled fucking eggs!  I says 'that's not an omelette' the same way Paul Hogan goes on about that knife, but just as I'm about to whip out the perfect omelette that I brought along just in case, he skulks off with his limp cock in his hand, crying.  Win for pancs."

Without knowing anything about OP, you post on a comedy forum so therefore you've presumably got some interest in and understanding of humour, which is more than can be said for many people I've met - I don't even mean being into stand-up or sitcoms or whatever as a specific hobby, just appreciating stuff that's funny and finding the humour in things.

I really do think this is an underrated quality - obviously humour is highly subjective but it's really obvious when you meet someone who just seems to totally lack that sense.

Whenever I feel like a boring, useless twat I remind myself of one of my aunts, who said once that she dreaded having days off work because she didn't have any interests outside work and didn't know what to do (she's not into music or reading or sports or films or anything). I just can't get my head round that. And she's not a bad person, she's very generous and thoughtful, so yeah, everyone has something.

I'm very good at padding out threads with one sentence posts that add very little, but keep things ticking along in between the really funny stuff.

If that was a cheerfully suicidal "bye now" could you please not do yourself in? Thanks.

I thought I was shit at everything until I realised I had a great talent for avoiding or getting out of doing things that everybody else feels compelled to do, which might just possibly be one of the most useful skills anybody could be blessed with.

I get the impression that a lot of people are still trying to impress or appease that parent in their head, whereas I was always trying to convince mine that there was something wrong with me and they wouldn't have it, as a result of which I've always took a great deal of satisfaction in failing to live up to expectations.

The emphasis is always on what you could do, or should do, or can do. I say the first thing anybody who is unhappy should be thinking about is what they can stop or give up doing. Take all of the effort out of it, make things easier for yourself and don't feel guilty about it.

That's a good point. It turns out you're quite good at unsettling us Pinckle Wicker. Please can you be more shit at that?

Just remember the world isn't a meritocracy. The talented aren't always recognised and rewarded either.

I'm not sure what you mean by this I'm afraid. It was just meant to be a positive comment/observation.

I meant generous with her time and efforts, she's always offering to help out with stuff and give people lifts etc.

Anyway I don't want to derail this - hope Pinkle Wicker is doing OK. (I love that username btw, so there's another non-shit thing.)
