    I have my strong doubts. It's just like when people say 'God meant for things to be this way' or 'there is someone for everyone' it's one of those saying that gives us peace of mind, a way of lying to ourselves to pretend that life is fair and equal. But it isn't. My life is unfair, and I resent this.
    Life is unfair. You need to work at it. Try hard at something you're passionate about. It's not always easy.

    Also Hi all
    Don't even think of trying to hijack my thread.

    Why do you think college is a toxic environment? You can always do the qualification you want online.

    I'm sure you do.You just haven't found it yet. Is there anything at all you like? What do you want to be in future? Any ideas?
    I realized in college that human beings are as 'animalistic' as any other animal. There exists a social order, a heirarchy. Everyone's goal is to try to climb to the top of this heirarchy, to become 'popular', 'respected', 'cool'. I've witnessed people turn their backs on their old friends just so they can become part of a 'cooler' crowd. It's even worse in younger kids. Year 7 kids outright physically fight in order to gain physical superiority and higher social status. These selfish traits continue on into adulthood, although people are generally better at hiding them. I never trust people's intentions, because behind every nice person, in a group environment that same person might well mock or insult you (or worse) in order to gain the approval of their peers.

    Well okay even if its through text on the internet you sound arrogant and sarcastic to me. I'm sorry if you didn't intend it to sound so, but it did. Also, for someone who has started a thread to talk to people online maybe you shouldn't try to jump down their throats like they've insulted you especially when they've not said anything insulting or bad to you.

    If you don't like those kinds of people, don't get involved with them. Find people who don't mock, insult or ridicule you.

    I am far from what society considers 'ideal' or 'cool' or 'successful'. However, the older I become, the more I begin to question some of these societal narratives and social constructs.
    I like you already. I really, really like you. In a friends sort of way. Should probably add that I'm not in my right mind right now but even if I was in my right mind, which I usually am, I think I may still like you.

    How flattering! However, I really don't think you would like me in person.

    Oh? Do you have a third eye or something? Hey I'm no winner either. You seem like a nice guy. I will agree with you on the other thing though. Most people will constantly let you down and give in to peer pressure. Except for the rare few with their heads screwed on straight.
