I've given up on trying to find things that I want to enjoy, because all that happens is I end up failing multiple times because Im not good enough at anything, and dumbasses keep on saying to just "practice" and that I'll "eventually be as good as they are" which is incorrect because I'll never end up reaching they're level because they'll get better as i get better, meaning there will always be a gap. I'll always be the one behind thats never good enough, so I've officially given up on having fun, and I'll become the mindless robot that I often end up thinking I am. Happiness is only a temporary thing, so its useless pursuing it anyway. I'll just become the most boring person on earth and die of old age or something so I can finally stop having to live this useless and painful life.

I. Give. Up.

I don’t have lots of hobbies or anything. I like tv shows and games on my computer to relax. Or taking a walk. You don’t have to have a talent to enjoy something simple.

Why does it need to be a competition? Do something just for the enjoyment. You don't have to be the best. I grow fruit and veg. So does half the world. I'm pretty terrible compared to most people. But do I care? Nope. Because it's fun!

I agree. I like to golf even though I’m pretty awful lol. And to do art even though I’m not artsy.
