>As a kid everyone thought I was a good boy with a bright future but then….
Holy crap this is accurate.

 No.271521

Many parents don't do anything to make their kids develop actual confidence and self-esteem but instead they give them these hollow compliments when they are obedient or doing something anyone else does. The same type of parents usually don't have any social intelligence and don't realize that you're growing up to be a social retard.

You just grow up with illusions because the adults in your life were too incompetent to prepare you for the world and at the same time you relax on these hollow compliments because you have "talent" and "potential" while not actually developing any skills. In the meantime the people who have developed confidence just do stuff and get good at it while you end up being a lonely weirdo with no personality at some point.

Successful people or people with friends, relationship and personalities don't have to be intelligent wonderchild types but they have enough self-esteem to do things and get good at them while you wasted all that time swimming in illusions and doing dumb shit and in the worst case you become a hateful weirdo or drug addict, you might even get grifted by some doctors in the process.

The things that are required to achieve anything in life is what you ultimately lack and even if you have actual talent in something it still won't get you anywhere because you have no confidence, social skills or likeability.

Not saying life is over but the clocks ticking and times working against us.

I'm only 26 so this will probably change as I age but most succubi older than me just see me as some none threatening kid. And to be quite honest it's not that bad as they treat me like their own kid. It makes work a lot more easier on me as a lot of my co-workers are older succubi, but people my own age just tolerate me there.

>grow up to be forced to obey their rules because actually dealing with a child is annoying, so your existence is minimized as much as possible or your beaten due to parents' annoyance with your normal child behaviors
>don't learn any useful skills, have stunted emotional intelligence, and be completely oblivious to the way of life because parents completely neglected you all for the sake of muh sex or muh baby

I had the smart-talented-good mannered kid treatment too. growing up with this has side effects as others have pointed out but for me the most interesting thing is realizing how clueless normal people are. everyone I met through out my teenage years thought I was on a path of success when in fact I was headed for a total disaster. it is reminiscent of cliche comments made by people who knew serial killers "he was the nicest person we never see this coming" etc. I mean people are really retarded they cannot read anything or anyone. be clean looking and wear glasses and people will think you are some kind of math wizard or a savant because that's what the brilliant people look like in movies.

so sad when you was locked up in a shithole for external reasons and then just ended up a social retard, while you actually had more capabilities then most of the people you knew.

My parents were drug and alcoholic abusers, as well as my dad's older age gave me autism. So yes, parents are to blame when it comes to being a fuck-up for most people.

 No.271599

>>271597
To be fair, a man's old age usually doesn't cause any problems but their substance abuse might have caused problems. And you're right most of the time the parents are to blame because their parenting affects how you handle situations and more.

 No.271600

>>271599
Even if you discount the whole nature vs nurture shit your parents gave you your genetic material as well. They are quite literally to blame for your life. I don't get why people do this stupid shit, if you were walking down the street and some guy's dog bites you, you blame the owner not the dog. But for some reason people are an exception and they should just be great even if they have been given shit genes and raised like an animal.

No, the paternal age of a father matters a lot. Advanced paternal age, defined as being 35 years or older at the time of conception, has been linked to an increased risk of certain birth defects and developmental disorders, including autism. Additionally, older fathers also have a higher risk of causing chromosomal abnormalities in their children, like down syndrome. This is caused by genetic alterations in reproductive cells, known as de novo mutations, and they are more frequent in male reproductive cells.

I was one of those "wonderchilds" I studied my ass off just to please my parents and teachers. I thought I was gonna be someone important and special. I studied while the other kids were playing outside, I studied while other teenagers were dating and having fun. Now a lot of those troublesome kids have families and a good job, while I have nothing to show for all my effort. I trusted my parents, I trusted my teachers, I trusted society… It was all a scam.
What a fucking idiot I was.

I do find it funny how with boys it's pretty much a universal rule for the most successful ones to have "bright kid but doesn't pay attention or apply himself" written on his report card. They get the upper end of mediocre grades until they're 17, and then apply themselves through the last year of high school and university. The kids that are studious from early on become NEETs often or burn out.

Same, I was "gifted" and very quiet. Some teachers loved me and said I was perfect; some hated me in high school because I didnt "participate" so they quite literally bullied me. No kids bullied me, just teachers; I still have nightmares about it. University went well because I was cunning and careful to avoid group projects and presentations. But I still came out of all this completely useless. Jobs require social skills, I become incoherent in verbal interviews, get shaking/diarrhea/nausea in those situations, am now over 30 years old with no references, and apparently degrees are meaningless now. I worked hard but now I am just left to rot with a mountain of study debt. It would have been better if I never tried at all and just went on neetbux, my hard work is literally entirely a burden.

I hate how I been lied and deceived too. You do everything they tell you and still fucking nothing, nothing will make them happy or satisfied. They don't fucking care, they just want shit from you and nothing else. One day they will all pay, I swear it.

Because you aren't a chad normalfag. That's what it's really all about. As a kid my mom always told me I was smart and stressed my smartness, so I did what I was told. I went to school every day, and then I went to high school every day, I did "extracurriculars" like learning an instrument and a language, I was in the high school robotics team. Then I went to college like I was told to and got a degree. And after all that I found a pretty good job, in a science field, that was fairly high paying, and yet she still called me a loser cause I wasn't out having sex and partying. That was when I knew that none of it had mattered. I will never get her approval because she will only approve of some social butterfly chad, and that's just not who I am. So nothing I can do will ever impress her, nothing will satisfy her, I am incapable of being that good son she wanted so desperately.

Drugs can do wonders if you pick the ones that fit your idiosyncrasies. My life has gotten way better after i started smoking pot (in moderation, when i do too much i get lazy), I lost weight, feel more inclined to exercise, eat less, and overall feel better.

Always got along better with adults and never had friends my age. Became depressed and started neglecting my school work because vidya was the only thing that made me happy. After high school, I realized it was pretty much over for me. I could never progress past the "acquaintance" stage of a relationship for obvious reasons. What would a guy who spends all his time in his room be able to talk about with normals who spend 90% of their time with others?
