Post how your family held you back from success.
>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 sequentially lowered my testosterone
>Gave me bad genetics(medium dick, king of manlets(5'11), bad eyesight, bad hair genetics, acne, made me Canadian)
How has your family held you back/harmed you, robots? Tell us your stories.
>came from a poor family, could only afford autism clothes/shoes
>dad was around but never taught me how to be a man (kind of my fault tho, since I was a momma's boy)
>parents were dumb so could never help me with homework
Didn't come out too bad, I think. Then again, I'm on /r9k/ on a Friday.
I stopped blaming them a long time ago.
my parents weren't perfect. There was alot of things they couldve did differently.
But sometimes they were too busy hovering on the brink of bankrupcy, keeping me clothed and fed, and a roof over my head to pay any attention to me. They just weren't ready for a second kid, and to this day I doubt they realize it.
But I love them, and there comes a time for forgiveness in every mans life, where you've gotta put yourself in someone elses shoes.
They would never let me out like all other kids when I was a teenfag and would nag the shit out of me if I went home one hour late or something. So the spark I had during teen years to go out and socialize sizzled out and now ironically they are the ones annoying me because I never leave the computer.
Other than that, they're alright and I love them
>Be me, young and fit.
>Parents wont sign consent forms to allow me to join armed forces.
>Drop out college after first year
>Be unemployed half a year
>Be on Jobseekers benefits
>Get minimum wage job
>Get kicked out home
you have shown that you are not a fucking failure. who doesnt expect their family to provide them every single thing, teach them every single life advice. now all you have to do is stop being a faggot and accept that your family members are human and nobody can be 10/10
You know what to do, anon.
Go get em tiger
sure why not
>dad was never there
>mom was a crazy, beating me on the head whenever she was angry, being bitchy and nagging all the time, calling me a monster and an idiot
>they were constantly arguing daily with mother acting exactly like the bitch in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEPoO08IMog
>the same hysterical tone of voice, screams and crying with me and my brother right next to them through all childhood
>when I got diagnosed by a psychiatrist with personality disorders and depression my mother's reaction was: "why are you doing this to me?!"
>brother is schizophrenic btw
Thanks guys, I really enjoy being a depressed kisless virgin NEET unable to talk to people at the age of 27. In a country with no autismbux. I really appreciate your compassionate parenting.
feels bad bro.
I'm working on fixing myself, personally.
I want to stop being a worthless NEET and start being a successful non-wagecuck.
NEETlife really isn't all it's cracked up to be. What are oyu doing to fix yourself senpai?
I was homeschooled and was socially retarded as a result until I met some normalfag-ish nerds at a neighbor's birthday party in my freshman year of hs.
Those guys let me into their group and slowly morphed me into a person that resembles a human being.
Still just as autistic as before i met them when it comes to women though.
gym and running every day to not feel like killing myself all the time
trying to get back to learning programming but I cant motivate myself

The REAL problem is that none of your parents taught you to take responsibility for yourselves. Instead, they let you whine and sigh and roll your eyes with the rest of your effete Millenial generation and assured you that nothing was ever your fault. Poor babies, you weren't born with George Clooney's dimples to a family of billionaires and there isn't a line-up around the block to give you candy and free blow-jobs from under-age cheerleaders. You are so oppressed.
Meanwhile, real men who lack your slave mentality and loser attitude think not about what they don't have, but what they do -- and they roll up their sleeves and do whatever must be done, no matter how grim or ugly or hard, to force this world to conform to their Will.
You get EXACTLY the life you deserve robots. If the decisions you've made have resulted in an empty life of misery and disenfranchisement, then maybe you should stop making such shitty fucking decisions, get off your fucking computers, and start DOING something other than downloading horrible fucking animoo from Crunchyroll.
"Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain but for the heart to conquer it. Let me not look for allies from life's battlefield but to my own strength. Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved but hope for the patience to win my freedom." -- Rabindranath Tagore
>Meanwhile, real men who lack your slave mentality
BHAHAHAAH surely you mean *with* slave mentality right?
>and they roll up their sleeves and do whatever must be done
Yes they roll up their sleeves and go to their shitty 9 to 5 making only little more than my autismbux, how manly!
> get off your fucking computers, and start DOING something
You mean wageslaving? Fuck off kike, I'm happy as is.
My mother always tried to stop me from becoming a real person.
She was always trying to stop me from having friends, shopping clothes, having an opinion, having fun, taking a shower etc..
Anything that would make me feel good about myself she hated.
I'm 22 and I still haven't go rid of her influence completely.
She was, is and will be a horrible bitch forever.
My mother has always been the bane of my existence.
I've founded two NGOs, run for public office, and been on the front page of every newspaper in the country. And I am a robot JUST LIKE YOU. In fact, I can almost guarantee I have far more serious health problems than you do. The difference is that I never let crippling depression, social anxiety, poverty, awkwardness, or ugliness prevent me from pushing relentlessly to do the things I decided needed doing. I've fought my way out of homelessness *multiple* times, never allowing failure to keep me down. Every time I was punched to the canvas, I climbed back onto my feet and started throwing punches again. If you never surrender, you never lose; you've just experienced a delay in ultimate victory.
But hey, it's your life, friendo. If you want to be a hollow man, a soulless qlippoth doomed to do and be nothing of consequence and fade from this world never having truly lived in it, you can do that. No one can or will stop you. Go to your insipidity, untermensch.
Nothing about finance or investing.
Put me down constantly. Never loved me or showed me affection. Dont even know why they had children if they dont even want to take care of them. This made me an antisocial loner and a loser. Cant socialize even if I want to. By all accounts Im a complete loser with no purpose.
You don't need to imagine it. Here's me, in all my glory. Notice that I'm fat, ugly, and wearing a fucking *fedora* -- and yet I've hosted two successful radio shows, had a Wikipedia article written about me, and spent a full and enriching life in service to my community despite having been thrown out on my fat arse at the age of 17 with nothing but the clothes on my back to, in my father's words, "root hog, or die."
Its minor, but they babied me for longer than they should have. Stuff like
>encouraging the watching of cartoons rather than live action movies & tv
>listening to cartoon soundtracks and "funny" music instead of popular music
>"kissing is icky and girls have cooties! romance is just mush! :^)"
It doesn't sound like much, but it meant that by middle school I was about two years "behind" everyone else, from a personality development stance. So if everyone else saw their first r-rated movie at 11, I saw mine at 13. If everyone else had their first kiss at 13, I had mine at 15. If everyone else got drunk/high for the first time at 16, I got drunk/high at 18. If everyone else lost their virginity at 17, I lost mine at 19.
It made feel uncool and made me grow up without any confidence. Probably why I'm such a loser today.
Do we have to do this every fucking time? Reverse image search it and you'll find my name in the newspaper article it's from. Look me up at Canada411 in Windsor and call me. I'm listed. I'll answer the phone and prove it's me. Pic related: also me.
>told me that all you really need to make a lot of money is just to go to school and bee really smart
>constantly remind me I'm good looking (obviously I look like shit)
>always told me I'm fine whenever I asked if I should start working out or get a tutor for school
Because like I keep telling people, I'm a robot just like you. I'm fat. I'm unattractive. I have social anxiety. I spill my spaghetti constantly. I live with crippling and untreatable clinical depression. I have been homeless repeatedly throughout my life. The difference is that I never blamed my life on anyone but me. I don't control the world, but I *do* control how I react to the world, 100%. When people laughed at me or called me a fucking extortionist on the front cover of the fucking newspaper or mocked me in a speech given hundreds of times to conservative organizations by a shitbag neo-con writer for Maclean's Magazine as an example of "union lunacy" in this country, I just pulled my chin in and kept throwing punches. And still am.
I've made enormous sacrifices in my life to achieve the things I've done -- and you know what? IT WAS WORTH IT. Every meal I missed, every day I spent in court, every year I spent pushing against a wall built by people who were stronger, richer, and more powerful than me until, they all made my life worth living. I'm not saying these things to try make you feel badly about yourself, I'm trying to goad you into getting up off your fucking knees, spitting in the world's eye, and daring Planet Earth to take its best shot.
I want to see you succeed. And you CAN. I have faith in you. I have faith in ALL of you. You have the seeds of greatness inside you if you'll stop blaming the world for your life and TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for it.

My siblings are struggling too but they seem to be doing much better than me so my life being shitty is probably my fault. I should probably just take responsibility for being a shit person but I can't help feeling resentful. The few times I've tried to open up about it, people brushed it off as whining or exaggerating and didn't want to hear it.
Well mr Graston, it says here that you graduated with honors from a uni and have a wife and 3 kids.
Some of us (including me) couldn't even make it through high school. Sounds like you do have a lot of qualities we don't have, the most important one being self esteem and work ethic, if what you wrote is true.
I appreciate what you're doing here, but I see no reason to downgrade yourself as you do, as it's clearly not true.
If you would excuse me, this europoor is going to bed now as it's almost 3 am. Don't forget to buy some escorts as I recommended earlier.
>If everyone else lost their virginity at 17, I lost mine at 19
You must be such a loser.
Um, that's the author of the newspaper article about me, not me.
This is me: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Nellis
>Had me by accident, youngest of four siblings and seven years younger than the next one up, because lol wut is birth control?
>claim bankruptcy shortly after my birth because money was already bad before that
>money was bad, not because there was no work, but because dad couldn't into business management
>despite being a total disaster as business, dad couldn't ever hold a regular job. always self employed construction
>always fucked up, made mistakes, got sued several times for poor workmanship
my whole family was a disaster. i was living alone at 17 (another story). paid for my university; at 32 I am still chipping away at the student loans. frankly i will be relieved if dad dies without somehow leaving me owing on his own debts.
>king of manlets(5'11)
I don't want to ruin your night but 5'10 is king of manlets. 5'11 is a failed tall person.
Listen up, dickbeater: If you'll take off your nipple clamps for a bit and quit moussing your taper-fade fauxhawk you might get a little more blood to your brain since your skinny jeans and fedora seem to be stopping the flow of it to your brain apparently. Goddamit in my day we didn't use a phone like you young shit-for-brains to send a picture of our dick to a woman. We fucking showed it to her in the backseat of a car at a drive in movie. And we didn't take naked "selfies" of ourselves while imitating a duckface! We got naked at the park with a hot chick and didn't care if the ducks walked around us while we were bumping uglies to the tunes of the Stones. We didn't use computers to beat off like you puppy pricks, we manned up with a Playboy or a Penthouse and probably beat off to your mother's images she didn't tell your fucking oil trader father about. We didn't shave our fucking nuts like you dickheads do and we sure as shit didn't need a computer dating service, we fucking went to bars and picked up women with our quick wit and snappy patter, not some fucking poorly spelled booty call on a smart phone messaging system. "u up? mfw horney. horney.jpeg." You young fuckers have ruined sex with your tattooed testicles and fucking chinese letters on every exposed part of your body and you come to work on weekends with goddam dayglo soccer shoes and socks that don't match on your little hairy white feet and talk shit about Basel II while carrying tranny porn on a thumb drive in your pocket. Why don't you drive your thumb up your ass and browse that file?
>Never seen nor touched parents
>Will not be at my funeral
