I don’t mean to be dramatic, but after muddling everything up so many times I think it’s finally time. I’m finished, no desire to carry on.

I guess this will be my final internet post. I posted here under another name years ago, but I’ve mostly stuck with reddit and the likes. This ain’t a suicide note or anything like that – just clearing my head and letting it all out before I leave.

Outsiders might think I am well off. My family is fine, I’ve lead a good life, I got a J.D and a B.S in a STEM field and I have no student loans.

But underneath this mask I’ve failed and kept on failing. I only was successful in school because I sacrificed EVERYTHING ELSE. I’m not a smart guy, I just spent every living second studying and never had one friend, a gf or anything a normal man should have in his life. I hoped the degrees would be worth it. Instead I failed at all of it.

I had to support myself as a camera man between college and law school. I never found meaningful employment. I was unemployed for years after law school. I couldn’t even get interviews after awhile because of the gaps on my resume – they just assumed something was wrong with me.

I thought I’d start over as entrepreneur and made stupid financial decisions that just became a nightmare for me. Every business I started ended as net loss.

I have nothing to show all for my effort in schooling. I never went anywhere foreign, never had a cool car, a big tv, freaking nothing. 18+ years of sitting in my bare apartment and sleeping on a futon.
I always wanted to start dating but I never got around to it. I gave up a “normal life” so I could focus on becoming successful. But I failed.
Theres no point in starting over or going back to school for another useless degree. Everything I touch fails. I’m the problem here.

I didn’t come to this decision over night. I’ve been thinking about this for a longtime. I keep saying to myself “If I fail this next thing, that’s it for me, I’m finished.” I just kept repeating this for years thinking it would be different. The funny part is, I’ve tried so many new things and took huge risks knowing it doesn’t matter since I’ll be gone soon. But still, that was all for nothing too. I even invested in crazy stuff, like BTC, but ultimately botched that up as too. I should have made a ton of money, but lost out with bad timing.
I took out life ins and paid the premiums for years now. My folks will get something nice to remember me with.



hell, the only thing I was ever good at was brushing these damn teeth.

Anyway – Thanks for the support on here in years past. Whatever you guys decide to do in life – I hope you find peace.

Take Care.

You're suicidal and don't even have student loans. You don't even have a huge negative net worth like 80% of the people on this board. You piss me off. At least take out a bunch of student loans and go back to college and party.

Get a MBA and then go work in corporate america. You have a blank check to start over and you are talking about suicide which is ridiculous.

If you kill yourself you will just have to relive this crap over again. You will accomplish nothing.

What exactly do you mean by all this? You say it's NOT a suicide note, but you say "you're finished with no desire to carry on" and that you will "be gone soon". Care to elaborate?

My life hasn't exactly been a huge success either, and my teeth are a huge source of pride for me as well (not one cavity and my dentist has always jokingly complained he can't make any real money off me) but despite my numerous failures I don't see myself as "finished" or "the problem". There's got to be something in you for your life to have some purpose, however small that might be. I've given up on a lot of things, but not on life altogether.

Here's a thought - go live somewhere else where nobody knows you, find a good restaurant and wait tables or tend bar. Or get a job as a flight attendant. The money sucks but if you work enough your living expenses will be minimal, you'll likely never see the same passengers twice, and might get to go somewhere foreign. Or find one of those cruise ship or riverboat cruise companies that hire Americans. Again, crappy money but your living expenses are covered and you can see a good chunk of this country or elsewhere. Put your stuff in a storage locker, forward your mail to a relatives home and start a new lifestyle. You may not have much of anything but the flip side is you don't have much of anything to lose.

There's a freedom to no longer caring about living. Try something radical and new. Go to some ridiculous liberal arts school and take out a ton of loans. Go be a hippie in Seattle. Go work on a farm. Go teach English in Taiwan. So many things to get out of a rut. Are they wise financially? Will they make you successful? Probably not, but it's better than just throwing your remaining years away!

Think about all the things you can do, please.

"Hot Dogs Saved My Life". Check it out- it is very possible, and affordable, for you to get on a track towards a middle, and even an upper middle class, life. In an all-cash income I might add. You can save up money for a cart by doing Uber/Lyft, especially the weekend evening hours. If you don't have an Uber/Lyft qualifying car, they will initially let you rent one, so that you can save for a down payment on an affordable quality compact. If you couldn't make it in law or trading, f#ck law and trading. Just f#ck them. It's all behind you. Anyone can make it via "Hot Dogs Saved My Life".

I can guarantee you that there are plenty of people worse off in the world than the worst guy here on JDU possibly owing more than a million in debt.

We are social animals bound by the social construct instilled in our thinking by our upbringing. If we don't fit into this construction of being "successful," somehow we've failed in the eye of our peers. You need to let this kind of thinking go.

You need to stop giving a crap about what others think. No one gives a crap if you live or die, except maybe your parents. No one is thinking about how you are dressed or why you don't have a gf or how your legal degree was never utilized.

Find something that makes you happy and keep doing it. Try to stay away from drugs, but in this case you might be better off with it than without it. Go to Colorado. Have some fun. Take a break from the craphole you call life and slow things down a bit. Recuperate.

Life is, in a word, sh*#. You need to accept that. And it's not just you, everyone's life is also sh*#. You think Bill Gates doesn't have problems?

Well said. I agree: go to Colorado and take advantage of what it has to offer. If you like winter sports and green, voila. If not, learn about them and engage them. That will make you feel A LOT better in the short term.

And in the long term, you will find your way there. You have to take action. Are you going to be the Hedge Fund manager with the wife and two kids and two homes and 4 cars and $ for life? No, of course not. You might not be anything close to that. But you have to take massive action and strive to be something and take satisfaction in whatever that is. Because as people said, it is better than death and eternal damnation.

You don't have children it seems. This is a "blank check" as others wrote; you can go wherever, do whatever. I will not patronize you and say "yeah yeah I know things are hard..." but the truth is, life is not linear. Just because you are in a sustained down period now does not mean that it will continue. It could change dramatically. I was at a point of being unemployed, horribly overweight and nearly lost my girlfriend. But 7 years later, things are very different. And yes, you may say, "at least you had a girlfriend." But that is the same as critics of you will say, "At least you had 2 parents who are alive...or 'at least you were debt-free." It is all relative.

Listen to Eminem's song "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile over and over again. It helped drive me (literally, for years to get out of where I was). Have hope and have confidence in yourself.

Dude, since it sounds like you haven't had much female attention, there are really more pointless things you could do than run off to Asia in the fashion described by many in this thread.

As someone who did teach English in Asia, I can vouch for the merits of the suggestion that you give it a whirl. It was 2 and a half of the best years of my life, AND I was able to save up some money.

See something entirely different than what you're used to, meet a whole new bunch of people who know nothing about what you deem to be your failings, and draw the attention of attractive women who are fascinated by the shape of your nose and eye sockets (no joke).

If you really don't have the energy for that, throw yourself waist deep in p---y (in a place where such is easily obtained and you won't go broke). One or two people here have spoken of the merits of Thailand. Me, before I die, I want to visit the Philippine Islands again. Two words for you: Angeles City.

Good luck, and please don't check out prematurely. What's the rush? You have the rest of eternity not to exist.

I'm guessing these type of posts demonstrate the crisis that occurs when A types fail. There is so much more to life than your career or money.

While I don't agree with everything in the book, I think the main getaway is that you have to think happy thoughts and be grateful. People generally like people who are positive. You generally want friends who are positive. If you are positive, it is more likely things will turn around and you will be happier.

https://www.popehat.com/2015/11/03/the-fire-and-the-fall/

The so-called ‘psychotically depressed’ person who tries to kill themselves doesn’t do so out of quote ‘hopelessness’ or any abstract conviction that life’s assets and debits do not square. And surely not because death seems suddenly appealing. The person in whom Its invisible agony reaches a certain unendurable level will kill themselves the same way a trapped person will eventually jump from the window of a burning high-rise. Make no mistake about people who leap from burning windows. Their terror of falling from a great height is still just as great as it would be for you or me standing speculatively at the same window just checking out the view; i.e. the fear of falling remains a constant. The variable here is the other terror, the fire’s flames: when the flames get close enough, falling to death becomes the slightly less terrible of two terrors. It’s not desiring the fall; it’s terror of the flames. And yet nobody down on the sidewalk, looking up and yelling ‘Don’t!’ and ‘Hang on!’, can understand the jump. Not really. You’d have to have personally been trapped and felt flames to really understand a terror way beyond falling.

The brother's post is suspicious. It's a royal pain to register a username on this site, unless something has changed and an edu address is no longer required . I doubt a grieving relative would go thru the trouble to register here

If it's a troll job it's in very bad taste. There is a place for poison-it rhymes with bone.

Your rules admin, but the older you get the more lives you see destroyed and families shattered by mental health problems (and drugs and alcohol too) the less funny this stuff looks.

Are you still here dude?
Sorry, got here six days late but if you are still around call County mental health or just hit the local hospital and they will put you on a psych hold where you can get some rest. It's better than asking for medical advice on the internet

Hes already dead. Look a few posts up.

This is terrible but since this site was sort of founded or evolved into an attorney complain site it makes sense for people to post suicide type notes here. Its hard to read that OP. Hard to read about somebody in that much pain.

I hope to God this was all one big hoax, either the OP came to his senses or the supposed "brother" was not really his brother but just somebody who thought it would be funny to yank everyone else's chain about this, and in very poor taste. Does the Admin have any information on this?

Sorry but I don't think this post is real.
If there is a bro reading this, sorry for his pain.

Why would you post on JDU right before you killed yourself? Seems like a reg in here would recognize a poster that was a cameraman turned lawyer with a STEM degree. I have not been here that many years, but I don't recall seeing anyone posting that combo. Also I notice CatholicschoolinIowa or whatever his name also comes on, another person I think is a reg trolling us.

I have just seen too many elaborate hoaxes over the years on internet boards, from regs creating false identities to get a laugh on other regs to trying to meet/or hookup with them in real life. Sorry to be skeptical but I think it's some reg or an anon poster who got a laugh toying with JDS.

I assume it's a troll poast. Both OP and the brother.

But in case it wasn't I didn't bash OP as I usually do when OP has weak hands.

This is one of the dumbest threads ever posted on this site and should be deleted.

Seconded. It was almost plausible, but when you really think about it it is ridiculous. A brother is going through the OP's iPad internet history? He comes across this forum? He happens to find this thread among the masses? He identifies OP? He creates his own account to post an update to a forum that doesn't even recognize OP? Then he fails to produce any identifying information to corroborate this?

A troll was tugging at your soft heartstrings. And all of you got played.

It is the theater of the macabre and we are all staring with our jaws agape.

If I finally put a bullet in my medulla oblangata, the first thing my family would do is thank everyone on JDUnderground for their support.
