    Hi everybody. I've been depressed for a few years. I'm not doing that well at college and I'm not very smart. My brother is a computer technician and I feel like an idiot compared to him. My brother and sister have jobs whereas I'm struggling to get one. I feel terrible. :(

    Hi there and welcome to SF. :hug:

    My partner (I'm too old to say boyfriend) has an older brother who has an awesome job, heaps of money, posh house blah blah blah. He is the biggest arsehole I have ever met in my life. I call him platinum bollocks. Nasty nasty man. So you see? Having an older brother with money does not make them better than you in any way at all. It's what is in your heart that makes you a good person, not what is in your bank account.

    College can be a pain at times, and depending on where you are in your course, you can find yourself really cynical and hating it all. I know I did.

    Just a thought - have you talked to anyone about all this? You've taken a big step by posting here. I hope that you keep talking to us. Feel free to PM me if you need an ear.

    An exam does not dictate your intelligence level. Whats important about college and university is to gain knowledge and insight on how the world works.

    HI Luke,

    I remember you. WE had a chat in the chat room.

    Even i am struggling to find a job.My most of the peers either have a job or have done a job before.

    My future looks very dark.I don't say this but everyone else say that.

    We all have things we are great at and it doesn't have to be what others are. Remember the things that make you happiest are the things you were made to do and you will do them well.

    I'm not very smart either. I'm the dumbest one in my family (including cousins and the like). Don't let their accomplishments bring you down. Be yourself and keep searching..
