Post how your family held you back from success.

Mine:
>Never taught me ANYTHING about personal finance/investing/markets, etc
>Said meme shit like "You need to be a genius with a million dollars to invest!" when I told them what I learned about investing and tried to talk to them about it
>Constant nagging raised my cortistol and subsequently lowered my testosterone
>Gave me bad genetics(medium dick, king of manlets(5'11), bad eyesight, bad hair genetics, acne, made me Canadian)

>>54952184

They're too fucking nice. Buy me things even though I tell them not to, let me stay at home even while studying part time, dont force me to get a job

I mean its good but I sometimes think I'd be further in life with shit parents who didnt give a fuck about me so I'd be motivated to do something
>>
>>54952362
>Turk

Not surprised.

The height isn't really that bad, I like being king of manlets but my point is that I got dealt a terrible hand in every aspect with no real redeeming features.

>the problem with administration is that you can get one of those from a cereal box, they are everywhere

Not sure how it is in other countries but in North America it's just a type of degree. Like "Bachelor of Science".

You specialize in something like Accounting, Finance, Marketing, international relations, etc.

>>54953813
Whenever my parents go out with my brother and sister I never go (I say that I don't feel like it) because I kinda hope they get in a car accident so I just inherit everything
>>
Never pushed me to excel in sports or school

No real boundaries were ever set I was allowed to come and go from the house as I pleased which meant I spent all my time smoking weed and getting drunk then driving home shitfaced at 3am everyday (high school of course)

Father never laid down the facts of life for me

Never had to face any consequences when I fucked up

At least they provided a healthy diet so I didn't become a fat fuck, we never had soda or junk food in the house
>>

Do you go to university? If so what do you study/what is your major? How are you doing in your classes? If not, what sort of life do you lead?
>>
My parents pretty much let me do whatever I wanted so I drunk energy drinks, played WoW and slept in class. I ended up dropping out. They also rarely bought me new clothes and my mother was terrible at washing clothes properly so I always looked like shit which made my social anxiety much worse.

>>
>>54954243
Pretty much same here, my dad was a lawyer who was either not home, asleep or too busy watching TV to care about what I was doing

My mom was always drinking with friends or watching daytime TV to care

Too much money to care about what I was up to so I just kinda played WoW all the time

My mom also would just go to the swap meet and buy clothes for me randomly so practically everything I own to this day is Quiksilver
>>
Neglect, abuse, this and that. At one point I was like a slav gopnik, but later I turned into a classical autist. Ultimately I learned a lot about life over the course of 5 years after I turned 18 in a series of sometimes painful experiences when I forced myself to talk to people and think, and I'm now actually functional.

Funny that my appearance used to bother me but now I don't give a shit and even receive compliments if anything.

>Gave me bad genetics
Little stupid sissy. Bad genetic - vienam child after agent orange.
>>
I think both of my parents are fairly simple, and I think I'm probably simple and socially retarded on top of it. It's not a great combination, but it works for me.

I think my parents were too young when they had me, I'm now 5 years older than them when they first had me.
>>
>>54954247
>No osap

Literally why...
>>
Blame others for my own shortcomings the thread
>>
>>54952184
Bullied me to schizophrenia. Daily humiliation. I was made responsible for how my father felt, I was taught to be a victim, and have been victimised by countless predatory people as a consequence. Was abandoned in front of a screen, not even taught basic hygiene or given emotional support, just interrupted so my father could extract some energy from me via verbal aggression or demands for narcissitic supply.
>>
>>54954516
they might be my own shortcomings but they're largely due to the overly lackadaisical attitude of my parents

if you're going to tell me that the conditioning given to an individual by their parents growing up has no impact on their ability to perform as an adult and change who they are then I will literally lmao at you

Pretty much ruined my Dads life, my younger brother joined a skinhead gang and got sent to prison for crippling a black guy. I live at home with my Dad, who just works and drinks. Its pretty rough.

>"lol anon, why the fuck don't you get a gf"
>anon, why are you so fucking ugly man, look at me your brother and cousins, we all have green/blue eyes while you have this shitty brown eyes"
>anon, why the fuck you're so slow, pay the fuck attention you idiot

And shit goes on, it's even worse when my mom's stressed and she says the same stuff.
>>
>>54954921
Man you gotta move out.

If they're treating you like shit you shouldn't keep talking to them.

Just do what you can to succeed and prepare yourself for the next 6months to a year then leave and never talk to them.

I'm starting college this year and then i'll find a job. The worst part is how my mom will react, like because of these things, she thinks that i'm uncapable of doing stuff and if i move you, i think i'll cut all my contacts with them.

They treat me good at first, but with the live living with them, things get shit pretty quick. My only income now it's small investment in the market. At least i have my own cash, but still not enough.

I lived in a house full of women all my childhood (My dad was finishing his Master degree in Chicago).
My sisters used to dress me in girl's clothes and play barbies with them when we were children. so I came out a little effeminate. Is just crazy how much people can push you to something you are not. All the time my mother asks me if I have found a gf or a bf. And that just fucking makes my blood boils.
I'm just not fucking gay. Dude now I know what gay people feel when they are pushed to be straight.
A very sitcomy comedy if you'd like to say. But this fucking attitude has bring me to an identity crisis and seek for attention by posting nudes of myself in those old yahoo chat groups since I was 15.

My parents were boomers. My grandparents (Born in the 1920s) took care of me until I was 2 year old. My boomer parents did around 0 parenting but my mom managed to nag at me and bother me 24/7. My dad was mostly absent (at work or travel) until my teens when he was unemployed for a while. I miss my grandparents t.b.h.

If he were really close to me and did only for "bantz", i could handle. Otherwise no., i'm pretty indeendent but not at the same time. Like i said, i'm too scared of fucking up and rejection, i always trygoing to a psychologist but autism happens. Sometimes i cried in the street of fear, but it doesn't happen in 4 years now.

The only thing i spend my money is my car and some bills(internet).
