I've got a bit of an average question.
I'm the emotional equivalent of a 3 year old, but actually 21. I have a hard time being around people because I feel the need to be grandiose too, because I look at others achievements and don't see my own as anything of worth. So due to this, I turn on myself pretty easily. Obviously, I don't think of myself as being worth anything. Education really helped fuel this, though I hate to blame it. Everyone else in any class got an A and did well, even though they all bragged about being lazy and non-compliant, so when I did it, I was relatively scrutinized by both my teachers and my classmates. Mix in some generic malcontempt for my parents and you've got me.
So /adv/, my question is, why do I feel like I don't equal up to most (most should read successful) people in my age group (I make 50 grand USD a year with benefits with a union regulated job, so no, college isn't the reason why).
