When I was in high school, I had this classmate who excelled at everything.
He would get the best grades of the entire class, be the best at sports, (both in school, and outside we were in the same football team). He was tall, handsome, had tons of friend, active social life, and girls would hit up on him (literally one time a girl merged into the classroom during lesson and asked for his number i am not joking, AND HE REFUSED). I envied him so much back then.
Fast forward less than a decade later and his instagram account popped up to mine.
Apparently now he lives in Dubai, has a 10/10 looking model wife that now seems to be pregnant.
How the fuck is that possible that this man managed to be so good at life? He was already the best as a teen and now is doing even better as an adult. And no he doesnt't come from a rich and spoiled family, i know his background.
The only thing i can think bad of him, is the fact that he lost his mother later in life when he was around 20 but other than that i don't see anything wrong that happened in his life.
Does anyone know how some people manage to do so good in life compared to ohters?
Have you tried just being yourself?
Don't get me wrong i have my own life. I have my own place and work on my own (100 times better than being employed).
But the point of this thread is that every person has it's flaws. You are good at a few things, but not so good at others, right?
But it seems there are some people out there that are simply good at everything, you get what i'm trying to say?
I simply don't understand how is that even possible, it's like they are able to get everything without putting too much effort.
>Don't get me wrong i have my own life. I have my own place and work on my own (100 times better than being employed).
Buddy, that's not what it means to "be yourself"
>I simply don't understand how is that even possible, it's like they are able to get everything without putting too much effort.
Yeah because usually I pretend like I put in no effort, or I've been putting in effort my whole life and now it really is basically no effort. We weren't born different, you're just fucking behind, sorry
>How do some people get along with life so easily?
They know who they are and what they want and have no other scruples.
When the girl came in and asked for his number he said no, probably in full confidence without thinking, because he knew himself and knew that wasn't what he wanted. Let things that don't matter slide.
When you act in raw confidence without thinking more often than not things work out. It's not an easy thing to do since more and more people in modernity are constantly neurotic and trapped inside their own skull constantly trying to think their way out of problems instead of being proactive.
Sometimes it is the luck of the draw, and sometimes it's a fuck ton of work that you don't see.
None of that should matter though. Focus on your own shit and stop comparing yourself to others.
>He would get the best grades of the entire class, be the best at sports, (both in school, and outside we were in the same football team). He was tall, handsome, had tons of friend, active social life, and girls would hit up on him
Huh, you must not have had many actual smart kids in your class
>I envied him so much back then.
WHY? Did you not have a dad growing up or something? Or someone to tell you that envy is for fucking homosexuals? What is wrong with you? Maybe that kid was all talk and nothing real outside his pretty face? Use you head man, stop being a homosexual
Don't envy; if you put in the effort you could be far better than that homosexual, even if he is the best in the school
>How the fuck is that possible that this man managed to be so good at life?
He's prolly fake but I dunno. I didn't do the sports and the popularity and that part of the deal, but I have always been at the top of the class, never had to put in anything beyond minimal effort, always breezed through everything I ever did.. But that's from my perspective. From another angle, I probably put it way more effort than any of the other kids were willing to do, so what do you expect? I just don't think studying for 5-10 minutes before a test in the morning is a lot of work, I dunno
>And no he doesnt't come from a rich and spoiled family
That'd only make things worse from what I've seen
> i don't see anything wrong that happened in his life.
Give it time
>Does anyone know how some people manage to do so good in life compared to ohters?
Because I'm better than you? Lol nahhh really, you just shouldn't even think of things like that man, I know I don't
Yes man of course i envied him so much back then.
You know someone your age that is better at you at everything, how can you not envy that person, specially as a teen?
>He's prolly fake
What do you mean by that? He faked being good doing things?
>I didn't do the sports and the popularity and that part of the deal, but I have always been at the top of the class
You see what i'm trying to say...? You were good at classes, but not as good at it as doing sports or other things. This is what i don't get how was he excelling at all of those things simultaneously?
>You know someone your age that is better at you at everything, how can you not envy that person, specially as a teen?
Because I don't care? I can do anything he can do if I want to
>What do you mean by that? He faked being good doing things?
Quite likely, man. You sound like my former best friend, he would always get all enamored with these people that I saw were blatant fakes, but he bought into their bullshit and he was envious as fuck. I spent 15 years trying to help him and he always went to those kind of people instead of listening to me, even when everything I told him about them would come true
>You see what i'm trying to say...? You were good at classes, but not as good at it as doing sports or other things. This is what i don't get how was he excelling at all of those things simultaneously?
Nah man, that's because I thought football was for fucking homosexuals (still do). I got forced into the marching band in my junior year, they made me play snare drum. Immediately went to first chair, then later in concert season when we went to solo and ensemble, I was the only one to get a 1. I never fucking played the fucking thing until that year. Now throw anything in there that you want and I'd perform about the same (other than art, maybe, not gonna lie. Can I blame the astigmatism? Nahh art is just for fags like football)
None of that shit matters though, man, who cares? I would do all my friends' homework for them just so they didn't have to worry about stupid shit like that. It doesn't matter, just do what makes you happy, and I got your back, trust me
Not op but how is the guy fake? lol
>Not op but how is the guy fake? lol
Not saying he is 100% but hey, usually those football homosexuals are fake as fuck, eh? I just have a picture of him in my head is all, I could be way off
Btw by football i mean soccer fo you americans
Kys you point-by-point greentexting retard
>t. salty he was pwned too many times
If you're born with good looks everything else will come easy, you dont have to every worry about anything. They dont do anything different than you do, everyone just treats them better for the way they look.

Was she an ugly girl? I knew a lot of men reject girls in high school.
Anyway, I was just thinking this, about how people I grew up with excelled in life, while I'm still in my parents house like a fool at age 30..
I mean average but one year older than us
Not all men are desperate for girls, and many are skeezed out when a girl is really into them and makes the first move, funny enough.
But yeah man it sucks doesn't it :/ feels like some people are born to "win" at life. Idk. At least you have a job and place of your own right?
You can try takint a job overseas and then subsequentally find a wife as well.
Nah man i'm good on my own, older people than me are already divorced and paying the consequences, also i am not American if you are wondering.
See thats your mentality "oh I see a few people tried the thing and failed so I wont try" lol
But i know the consequences?
I see with my eyes when you fuck this things up ruining most part of your life
>But i know the consequences?
You're half right. What are the consequences of falling in love, though?
Just never get married, as my dad always told me. Only live with 'em
Is it the same idea at least? I have a permanent "kill all the jocks" mentality lol
>What are the consequences of falling in love, though?
Yeah the problem isn't falling in love, but when and if the love ends lol
>Just never get married, as my dad always told me.
That's literally what every married man has ever told me haha
>Yeah the problem isn't falling in love, but when and if the love ends lol
Oh no, we don't worry about all that. If we're in love, it's not going to end, right? :^)
It doesn't matter, because it's worth it, promise. Worst case you get a broken heart, unless you don't listen to
>That's literally what every married man has ever told me haha
In which case you might ruin your life. Don't get married, and be very, very picky about who you impregnate, you got plenty of time to find at least a half decent one
>Don't get married
And just to be clear: a woman who actually loves you won't demand you get married to her. She would understand why you wouldn't want to get married. It doesn't mean you intend to leave her in a couple years, it only means she doesn't feel the need to have that fucking legal contract hanging over your head so that she has the majority of the "power" in the relationship. Anyone who is power hungry in a relationship like that isn't a real human fucking being
good parenting and home life.
How does one raise a high-performing, confident kid? It seems like every little mistake can have such enormous consequences and fuck him up later on...
>seems like every little mistake can have such enormous consequences and fuck him up later on.
not really what does it. parents not dealing with their own problems and traumas will do it though.
Eva Mendez is so pretty, im always surprised they’re together. Ryan is a good looking guy too but I’d expect him to be with someone white like Emma stone.
Better than average genes considering intelligence, looks, motor and social skills + parents who support your social life(don't shame you for having premarital sex etc) = Boom, success in every field happens easily
>ade later and his instagram account
post instagram or fake larp
