>Asking, What am I doing with my life?
Yeah.  Was just going through some of my old photos from 10 years ago, revamping a website.  I do a lot of different things, but that's the problem, I spread myself thin on any one of them and am bound for mediocrity.  Although maybe that's not a failure, exactly, perhaps it's a reason not to like me much.

Digital art. For kids like 12 and up.

There's a company in my are that basically hires locals to do classes for others in whatever they do. And since this is a shitty little town where kids have fuck all to do if they aren't particularly sporty, and my mom has an art store, I have a sort of workshop where I let kids try out tablets and give them tips on character sketching, etc.

Basically, I let them draw whatever they want, but push them a bit into making some more interesting poses, breaking down shape language, understanding body structure, etc.

It's not much, and since danish welfare laws are butts I don't actuall get to keep much of the money I earn, but at least it's work hours I can put down, and I provide something to do around here that was never here when I was growing up.

the road to success is paved with the failures came before it.

if you feel like a failure, perhaps it would be good to analyze why, and what you can learn and extract from said feeling/situation?

I'll be ok if i get a damn job i think. So long as new cool art comes out, i can support myself, and i have a few friends, i'll be okay.

I think the pressures on people today are pretty absurd. Everyone feels like a failure because the expectations for people, even just to eek out a basic existence, are so high and complicated. I think it's all largely bullshit. It's propaganda to try and motivate the workers to make billionaires more money that stopped really meaning anything to them other than a score card decades ago. Our world is polluted with the black roots of corporate greed, down to it's very soul.

Survive, find things you love, do those things as much as you can. If you do that, you'll be able to find all the answers you're looking for, i think.

where do you think I got the meds, silly? it's actually a bit backwards to assume that someone must not have talked to a psychologist yet, because it implies that doing so immediately solves the problem. Depression isn't something you can just will away. it's a real battle that sometimes sticks around for years despite your best efforts. I usually just grab a few friends and ride it out until I feel better, but not everyone finds it so easy to defeat.

in a sense. Sociopaths have difficulty understanding the emotions of others. Not quite on the level of true psychopathy, but they find it difficult to think beyond sheer rationality and logic. it makes such things as consoling a hurting friend difficult.

Reminds me a bit of Penn speaking about his weight loss because everyone was asking about his weight loss, it seemed to be really effective.  But he had to preface it with "I am a Las Vegas magician and if you take my medical advice you're a dumbass."  It worked for him, it's what he did, he can't actually suggest it.

That said, my depression absolutely was just ridden out.  I think it's largely a very physical thing and that it can repair itself and you can get back to your life.  Which I say as someone who has no idea what they're talking about, I'm just a lunch lady.  But that's my personal experience.

It is a painful situation you are in, for sure. But i hope you will keep at it, and persist. Instead of thinking about what you should have done, and imagining it might be better, or different, try to focus on the fact that we cannot know these things, and that where we are in the here and now is what we have to work with.

...i think life has a way of not being how we want it to be. we look at others and compare ourselves. we look at our best self, where everything went right, and even feel envious of that.

But i know for a fact that such thinking brings a great deal of sorrow, and not much else.

We have the here and now, and we must make do. To wallow is dangerous.

i will say, i'm proud of you for hitting law school hard. Grades are grades, and you never know how things will go.

believe me when i say, law school is the worst, the people there are some of the worst you shall meet, but that it is just a tiny, almost impossibly tiny sliver of your legal career

the important thing is that you persist.

and i believe in you. i was once in your shoes too.

Thank you, Moony. I really appreciate it. The only thing keeping me going is knowing that there are a few people out there who still actually believe in me. It's just that between hearing some of my classmates talking about amazing research they're doing, to others talking about how they're choosing between Cravath and Wachtell, I just feel totally inadequate. I don't understand why the legal profession values student's worth based on grades determined by who can type the fastest in the 3-4 hour time window. Each interview I did, they said I had great credentials experience-wise, but then they got to my grades and I could tell in their eyes that it was over.

I can't relate to how you feel, I just draw fulfillment from everyday experiences helping people. One time that sticks out to me is when someone asked me what he and a girl he liked should do for their first date. I don't know anything about dates or romance but I did know there was a meteor shower coming a few nights later. So I told him that, and later on he told me the date was spectacular!

I've been feeling about the same. I'm almost 30 and I don't have any irl friends, I don't go out, my life seems to be in a stasis of not having a life. I feel the happiest sometimes when I'm at work and I like my job but it's one of those super high stress jobs that consumes your life.

I can empathise with the former. I'm also approaching my 30's, I don't have any irl friends, and even if I could go out I probably still wouldn't.

My life has pretty much been in stasis for the past year and a half, and I don't think it's going to end soon. Sure I'm undergoing treatments for my sickness, but nothing seems to be helping, nothing new is being discovered and I doubt there will be any changes at this point. I've went through several arduous periods of being essentially crippled due to my treatments and I've got nothing to show for it. Just more years I've wasted in my life.

As for work... I'm in the exact opposite ballpark. I can't work. And lord have I tried to in these past few years. But I just can't do it. Yet the state refuses to acknowledge it, all because I can't get an official diagnosis, simply because the doctors can't figure out what's wrong with me. So they continue to force me into applying for jobs that I'll never be able to take, paying mere scraps in the meantime with criminally low savings limits, ensuring that I will never be able to move out and try to eke out my own independent living.

And I can't see any of this changing in the foreseeable future.
