Lots of reasons.>Ugly, so no one wants me romantically>Fat and out of shape, so physical jobs are out of the question>Low or Average intelligence so high end jobs are out>Poor, I grew up poor>Serious suicidal depression
Growing up in poverty is the hardest one to overcome. It takes money to make money. The poverty trap is real.
The only redeeming quality I have is my humor and charisma. It's why I have friends if people get to know me they genuinely like hanging out with me.
Problem is most people avoid the poor ugly fat guy thinking he has nothing of worth. Which adds to my depression.
People always have advice too. Like just lose the weight. Dude, I try. People who give this advice aren't my size and have never been. I'm not making excuses. It can be done and it's my fault it hasn't. I know this. The frustration comes when people act like it's easy to do. Especially when you are addicted to fast food.
Smokers get it, I get along with smokers because they understand addiction.
But, as far as being over twenty five and having no accomplishments. It's easy to think you are going to be some hotshit rockstar, actor, game developer, or scientist. Until you realize most people aren't those things. Because for 99% of the population of the world those things were unattainable through either genitics or environment. Forces beyond your control. And it'd easy for Zoomers too be judgemental when Twitch and YouTube didn't exist for us growing up. These things make becoming a minor celebrity much easier for the common man.
