People always tell me that I need to have more self-confidence. I'm afraid of being confident because overconfidence breeds arrogance. But there's another reason why it's tough for me to be confident in myself - I have absolutely no good traits whatsoever. I'm ugly, I'm not witty, I'm not funny, I'm not interesting, I bore people to death when I talk, I'm only interested in anime and video games, I suck at talking to people, I have little experience interacting with other people at all, and everyone I talk to seems extremely disinterested in me. I have no skills, no talents, no redeeming traits, no good points at all. There is absolutely nothing to look forward to in my life. The other people here are complaining about their sex lives and boyfriends and girlfriends - I have it way worse than anyone else. I have no life, no future, no chance at ever being with another person. My life is practically already over, since it will never get better or improve. I'm already dead, and I'm only 18. You can't get worse than that. You might say that I'm not "willing to help myself". I'm not "willing" because it's not possible for me to be helped. I can't un-ugly myself. I can't un-boring myself. You just can't completely change yourself from a lame, dull, uninteresting and unwitty loser into the complete opposite. Believe me, if it were actually possible to help myself, I'd be doing everything I could. But I can't reverse time and go back to my formative years and enhance myself well my mental facilities were still forming. I've reached an age where my personality has finished developing, and I can't just radically change myself on a whim, no matter how hard I wish I could. I literally have absolutely nothing to look forward to. No girl would ever be interested in me, ever - I'll never have a mate. I'm so boring that people ignore me or leave me in the middle of a conversation - I'll never have a friend. I have no skills, I never got used to being in a work enviornment, and I do awfully around other people - I'll never have a good job. Other people have bright futures and things to look forward to. Me, I have nothing. My life is through with already - everything is over. I could have spent my formative years around other people to develop into a person who can interact in society, but I missed out on that. So I'm completed unsuited for life at all. I'm nothing. I have nothing, nothing at all. I don't know whether to kill myself or not. At least there is videogames and cool technology to look forward to in the future, but other than that, I've got nothing at all, whereas everyone else in the world will be able to have far more than I'll ever be able to. I'd trade videogames and the privilege of being a living creature if I could just evade the pain of having so much less than other people. I don't think I can be helped, but I hope I'm dead wrong and that someone here can tell me what to do to make my situation any better.
