Hey /biz/ I need your help
I have been marketed as the "Genius" of the family, but when really i feel like a retard
Now im 19
I am a NEET
I haven't even had a previous job
Mom want me to learn the Stock market
or Flip houses
I really dont know anything of the 2 and dont know where to go with my life
Right now is a prime time
travel. Right now, you're a pussy. You need to just take the plunge in the cold water. Go work a minimum wage job on a WAT program. Go study abroad. Work as a dishwasher, as a bellboy, as a stagehand and at a construction site.
It's going to suck, a lot. It's probably going to be lonely. It's going to lose you several precious years while you watch your classmates get good jobs, and while your parents try to hide their disappointment at your "wasted potential".
Thing is, you NEED this clarity and confidence in your ability. You will never be exceptional if you cannot control yourself. This alone is worth the investment.
And who knows, maybe along the way you find a meaning in life, something worthwhile to do. Maybe you find people like you, just the right measure of cruelty and compassion. Maybe you find a girl.
worse than that, it's borderline fucking criminal. You're setting your kid up to get completely fucked. Moms do this because they don't want their kid to soar too high and leave them. You think they're supporting you, but what they're doing is very carefully plotting your development as a human. If they're ever questioned about this shit, they'll call it "parenting". Don't exactly cut and run, but get the fuck away and grow as an independent man away from all that toxic shit they're fattening your ego up with.
This hits close to home. Even though I love my mom, several years ago I began to realise this is what was done. I ended up majoring in Social Science instead of Law (which I wanted to do), because she told me "I wouldn't cut it as a Lawyer' and that "my calling was Social Science". She wants me to do mediocre at best. Fuck.
