*deep breaths* okay, okay...so you've got all these failures in your life, and you came to ATS about it?
You're seeking life counseling from a bunch of conspiracy theorists? You're asking for known pessimists (who spend their day dreaming of ways to reveal the world as the giant rectum it really is) to fart rainbows, man. Best thing I can tell ya, is prepare to be supremely disappointed if you want to be told something positive.
Come on now...trolling is a dime an hour here.edit on CMondaypm383806f06America/Chicago23 by Starchild23 because: (no reason given)

Let's face it, you can't run from yourself which is what most of us are trying to do anyway when we avoid things. We don't like facing our limitations, fears. and sometimes the truth.
Maybe you're really not a coward if you are admitting to it. It sounds to me as if it's something you'd like to change.
Do you want to change it?
When I was very young I had awful nightmares about fish and insects. I was terrified of them both and killed them every chance I got. As I grew older I began to stop killing them and started to study them. What a difference it made! I love bugs now and save them every chance I get and learn something new about them all the time.
Our fears are the things the we have to face head on if we want to grow. Don't try changing everything at once but just find one thing you're afraid of and work on it. It sounds as if maybe you have things too easy if you don't have to work or apply yourself towards anything. Parents can cripple children by not giving them responsibilities or challenges.
What are your dreams? Isn't there something you would like to do with your life - some skill or talent you'd love to master? Those who work constantly and have little free time dream of being in a position such as yours. You should be counting your blessings and get off your butt.
Every last one of us was created with unique talents, interests and abilities. No 2 humans are the same. There is something special inside you that needs expression, that requires dedication and work to see flourish and come to a reality. Start dreaming and get doing man! Time waits for no-one. One day you will be old and wondering what the heck did I do with my life? Don't become that bitter old person who regrets not using their time or talents better.
If there's nothing you want to do for yourself what about doing something for others? Charities rely on volunteer help to feed the hungry, build homes for the homeless and provide other services to people in need. There's arts organizations that help bring programs to people who would otherwise not have the chance to take art, music or theater. If you won't help yourself - help others and I think you will be a much happier person.

Got ask you a few things before I continue.
Your age,in the ballpark not exact age.
Are you still living at home?
Do you have a father that is around you,spends time with you.
The loss of rites of passage is what has lead to so many man-babies. People are just lost, the traditional lines of gender roles have been greatly blurred and the further we inch towards androgyny, the more lost we're likely to become in defining what behaviors suit us and at what age to adopt them. Basically, men have no idea when or how to become men.
- cannot bring myself to improve myself
-dropped out of school
-dont want to look for a job
