I am worthless

I am 29 year old, and i have never had a job. Never worked a day in my life. I have only ever mooched off of my parents. Everything i own is bought with money my parents gave me, or they bought for me. I am pretty sure all my friends look down upon me because of this fact.

Every problem i have boils down to one simple thing:

I Am a Coward!

I am too much of a coward to get out and look for a job.
I am too much of a coward to ask help finding me a job.
I am too much of a coward to talk to girls, so i'll always be alone.
I am too much of a coward to tell others how i feel because i dont want to hear them say "Go get a job"

And most important i am too much of a coward to take my own life.

  • If u got a job you will feel like your doing something , I am a stay at home mom and I miss going to work . When your at home and watching everyone else coming and going it can get to you but your young and if u do nothing your going to regret that you wasted your life .
    Get rid of your pride and ask for help !

  • Taking your life would be being a coward. Living through life with all the pain and hurts it brings takes guts. Life is not easier. Anyone who tells you otherwise is on something. I know you've heard it before but it really is true-you are the only person who can change your life. Face your fears and get your act together. I know its easier sitting back and throwing a pity party for yourself, but that won't change anything. Think of how lucky you truly are-you have parents to mooch off from and to give you a roof over your head. Not everyone is that lucky. Why don't you show hem your gratitude by trying to get your life together? You are not worthless. You are scared. I know, believe me I've been there. But is this what you want your life to be like ten years from now? You're the only one who is going to change it.

  • First, you have to stop with the negative talk, that just brings you down and keeps you down. You are not worthless. Tell yourself that. Maybe your parents haven't actually helped you because they have enabled you to not be independent. But really all is not lost. It will just take a lot of effort on your part, but you have to start somewhere, and by doing things on your own it will certainly give you a sense of pride and accomplishment. Regardless of what others may or may not think, you don't have to justify what your parents have given to you, that really is no one's business but your own. I believe that once you find something you enjoy doing, you will gain some much needed confidence. And confidence will help you go far. It will also help you talk to those girls. Not sure if you have a college degree, or if you even want to work in the degree you achieved. But otherwise, figure something you like to do or could take some classes so you can get a job. Real estate, bar tending, personal training etc. Once you earn some money and have some savings, get your own place and begin to pay for all of your bills. Even consider speaking with a therapist or a life coach or just someone to talk to and keep you on track. You can do this. This is one day at a time process.
