Pretty much nothing anymore. I used to have some confidence in a few things but it was more ignorance of reality than anything. I guess I'd say I wish I had remained ignorant. It's the result of too much self-exploration.
Basically nothing. I can be a hard, diligent and conscientous worker when I need to be, so I often get by on that. But I have no real talents. I'm not a natural at anything. I have almost no confidence in anything I do.
Reading this thread makes me wish I knew some of you people personally so I could tell you what your positive traits are oh my lord
Like, I know y'all have them! There isn't a single person on Earth who doesn't have at least one positive trait, and that's a fact! Fight me! lol
I know I can write relatively well, and I can be a good person to talk to if you're having an emotional crisis. But I'm not good enough at either of those to make any money from them, so the things I'm best at I'm not good enough at to be competitive and my weaknesses put me well below average. So I'm also confident I'm going to die penniless in a gutter.
I'm confident that I'm becoming less rigid and cynical, more open and empathetic as I grow older. It's a constant internal struggle but I'm relieved to realise I'm unlikely to end up a bitter ideologue. That particular abyss is not going anywhere but at least now I'm alert to its existence.
Iâ€™m good at academics, I donâ€™t think that thereâ€™s anything that I canâ€™t understand if I put my mind to it. Really I donâ€™t think that thereâ€™s anything that I canâ€™t do (within reason) besides communicate like a socially competent human (I am almost hopeless on this point).
