You guys are still young kids, you might be down in the dumps but you’re probably not actually depressed unless you’ve been diagnosed with clinical depression and are going out of your way to try and kill yourself, which really isn’t a good idea tbh.
You guys haven’t experienced life at all yet, I’m 20 and I’ve barely seen the outside world myself. We humans have pretty short lifespans so we need to be able to get the things we want to do done before our time runs out on this Earth. There’s a lot of adventuring to be done, lots of cool sites to see, and a lot of fun things to do.
Relying on others to make you feel happy or feel worth is the wrong answer, it doesn’t matter what other people think of you. You need to accomplish whatever you need or want to do in life, set your own goals, hold yourself to a higher standard of excellence than the average person.
School is very easy, I regret wasting my time playing Battle Dawn, it caused my GPA to plummet heavily, resulting in me not being able to go to a very nice university right off the bat. I consider myself to be fairly smart too, I used to be an honor student, my problem was that I stopped caring about school and lacked motivation or the will to do the right thing. I’m still trying to fix what I messed up now that I’m 20. I’m in the Army now and I can tell you that the real world is stupidly easy, standards are very low and you have lots of free time to complete your assignments. Time management is essential, do your work, finish it, then you have the rest of the day to do whatever you want.
If you want to get ahead of the curve you need to be better than others, academically, athletically, you need to be morally superior than others too. If you do this you’re going to be the guy that lands that nice scholarship to your dream university, you’ll be the guy that lands the nice job, people will know not to mess with you and they’ll take you seriously.
If you work hard while you’re young it will pay off early on, you could be the guy who retires at the age of 40 with more money than you know what to do with in your bank account and a nice home, car, family, and the ability to pursue any hobbies or interests you have.
I took my old life for granted. If I had the ability to go to college right now I’d crush everyone with my current work ethic.
