my life is awful

Posted by Tommy at June 22, 2011
Tags: Attitude  Family  2011 June

At face value my life doesn't appear to be all bad. I have had the basic essentials provided to me by my parents whom have been somewhat decent to me. The real problem is my twin brother who is just all around better than I am. He is smart, attractive, and popular(on the varsity football team). While I, on the other hand, have never accomplished anything noteworthy ever. I am dumb, mediocre looking, and, on top of that, I have social anxiety(resulting in absolutley no social life).

Do you know what it is like to be a total failure while your brother is mister perfect? He goes out to those Friday night parties gets drunk and hooks up with the pretty girls at school, while I stay home every weekend and sit in my room by myself. Or how about those family reunions with all my uncles and cousins who open the door and go straight to Chris(sometimes walking straight past me without even saying hi). Chris tells all of his crazy/funny stories to the relatives as I sit in the back round and stare off into space, totally unnoticed.

I try so hard to be like Chris but it never sucks having everything you have ever wanted manifested as your twin brother. All I want is something to be proud of...something to tell people, something that will make somebody notice me. Why does it have to be like this? Why can't I be just like chris...? Life is so cruel.

Just kill yourself... or stop comparing yourself to your twin and be your own person and live your own life.

By anonymous at 20,Jul,11 21:09

I know EXACTLY how you feel.

At least you can take courage in the fact that you're not alone...

By anonymous at 21,Jul,11 19:39

Wow. That has to really suck. You should find something that your brother doesn't like and excell at that...

By anonymous at 21,Jul,11 23:52

Tell them how you feel maybe they will change. You need to find your own life k

By anonymous at 22,Jul,11 05:34

Stop trying to be what they want you to be and be what you want to and can be. Live your life to make yourself happy.

I have a similar situation with my brother, butwe are not twins. Whatreally works for me is not to compete with him, ever! Because then i loose. He is not mean to me, just better at a lot of things. So I look at him as a friend and notnas an enemy. I actually found out that he is very nice to me, if i stop comparing myself with him, and pay attention to other things.
It helps a lot to have things on your own. A found something that I really liked doing, was good at doing and he was at the moment not in to. I had a talk with him and asked him ifnhe couldnplease agree with me to stay out of that field. It was a 2 minutes conversation, 15 years ago, and it worked. None of us 2 knows if he would like THAT thing, or ifnhe would be good at it. He has never tried it, and often bringsmup thensubject in family or friends reunions on how good I am at it. Since then I enjoy with the rest to hear at the funny stories my brother has to tell, knowing that he is not better at everything. And most important to me, knowing that he loves me very much and i am important to him, if not for many others.

Very nice reply. Uplifting zo read :)

By anonymous at 22,Jul,11 22:27

You said that you try very hard to be like Chris. Well don't, be yourself and tell you're brother Chris that you feel left out when your with him. Its just highschool, and after that then you can be successful and show everyone who you really are. Dont be someone your not, and you seem pretty nice so just go for it and have fun! It doesnt matter that hes cooler or hotter than you, what matter is the inside and if you show sho you really are inside, who know people may like you! Be confident! Hope I helped :)

you're a different person ... quit trying to be like him and be yourself. you are good at things which he is not good at. Find your talents and use them even if they don't attract the flock your way, coz they never will come your way ... you just need to be comfortable with yourself, by doing what you're good at. you'll see at the end of the day you'll have a different crowd cheering for you.
good luck.

maybe deep inside you dont want be noticed by others..!You 're lucky enough to be healthy...stop complaining..and everything 'll change!

By anonymous at 08,Sep,11 21:12

anonymus you should never encourage someone to kill themselves that is dangerous and not very well thought out.

i know exactly what you feel tommy. i am a twin too and though you may feel like you can't you need to stop comparing yourself to your twin. you're different people and you don't go comparing yourself and getting all depressed with random people like brad pitt do you? no. because you are different.

stop comparing yourself!

also i'm sure your looks are the same. you are twins so don't worry about that.
