Well at that age, I wish I had done half as much. Did you miss a big promotion? got caught up with something that ruined your reputation? Well, I don't mind if you don't want to share it. As for advice, I don't know what to say since I don't have your history of success both career and social. I read some financial advice somewhere that renting is better than keeping up home ownership, as real estate will continue a leg down and won't really recover again until 2050. 10 years ago, I used to email with a guy 10 years older than me who used to work as an engineer doing work on avionics for fighter jets. Then he had his breakdown (although he never told me specifics either). then he said he got a job as a farm worker, packing fruit or something and learning to get along with other guys. He said he was making new friends with those people and he seemed if not content , then maybe happier with lower class friends who probably didn't judge him as much for his breakdown. then I stopped hearing from him.. Maybe he took a break, then later on restarted on his career in another state or with a totally new set of people. I wish I could do that. Just my 2c.
I'm still working on getting my own home, maybe never. Haven't been in a relationship, and getting up everyday when many times I just want to die in my sleep.
I'll never get into a corporate position. I was defeated by office politics after my last stint. I'm just good for menial stuff now.
My own brother laughs at me and gets me mad enough to get the police called over and yet he disavows all responsibility for his social attacks on me which has lasted a lifetime now that I'm almost 40. Even when I win an argument he continues to attack me some other way. I bet his own friends treat him like crap. He stopped listening to anything I had to say when he was 4 years old and when I was 8. At this point I just want to shoot him in the knee with a .357 caliber to do pain CBT on him to stop laughing at me or judging me with his fake tuf guy expression, totally fake.
most of my relatives labeled me a loser at 21 to 25. now almost 20 years later, I have no social life, no extended family life, no healthy friends. I have nothing, nothing at all.
All I do is drive to take out and watch out for the stoplights.
