Everyone on the planet has different talents that make them shine. However, nobody is good at absolutely everything. In fact, there are things that certain people just aren't cut out for. Here are some examples from people all around the world, courtesy of Reddit.

Mornings. I have worked "day" jobs for almost 30 years (including the military). I fight every day to get out of bed at a realistic time to get to work. And it doesn't matter how much sleep I get. I can get 12 hours of sleep and when 6:30 AM comes around, I am not rested and don't want to get out of bed. Fortunately I have always worked jobs that required me to have a flexible schedule, and there for I get some flexibility in return....
Sales. More specifically, cold calls. I just can't. My level of empathy for "No thanks, not interested" is like 860%.
"Cool, cool, cool. I'm not interested either. Cool. Sorry to waste your time." -- also me
You need your sleep.
Not getting 7-8 hours of sleep. People brag about getting 4 hrs or whatever and feeling fine, but I just feel like sh*t and start making tons of mistakes working.
On the plus side, I can stay up/work for long periods of time no issue assuming I did get my sleep.
Singing is scary.
Singing, I'd love to have a good singing voice but my voice is so f*cking trash it's not even funny.
It sucks when you genuinely enjoy it but should only ever do it alone in your car. I feel that.
But like how?Giphy
I managed to somehow get paint on me before opening the can.
It's never too late.
Having a personal conversation with my parents, asking simple questions like "how was your day?" or "why do you look sad? Something happened?" etc. Lately I feel like my relation with both of them are very surface level, and I feel like it's too late to go deeper.
My relationship with my parents is like this too and that's okay. I went through a painful breakup a few months ago, my mom didn't ask about it or let me know that she heard about it, and we haven't talked about it even once. But once when she thought I was asleep I heard her telling my sister to be kind to me because I was having a hard time. She cooked my favorite foods every day when I visited and spent so much time with me doing things I know she doesn't enjoy to make me happy. She prays for me every day.
I love them so much and they love me more than anything and that's what matters. Families are different from one another and that's okay. Your parents may not be the people you have deep conversations with, but if they're anything like mine they'll be there for you no matter what.
Continuing a task for more than 15 minutes without disappearing into the alternate universe where my ADD is God.
For me it's more of a problem of putting off a task until the very last minute. I procrastinate way too much, I mean I'm here aren't I?
It can be hard.Giphy
Navigating without turn-by-turn directions. I have ZERO sense of direction and the US highway system simply doesn't make sense to my brain. I feel like an alien sometimes.
I'd like to think of myself as reasonably intelligent, but I feel like a complete moron when it comes to directions. People will start telling me how to get somewhere and they might as well be speaking Swahili.
That could be bad.
Being under pressure. Burned my hand and almost my whole house when the oil caught on fire and my brain went.."maybe is should put the burning pan in the sink and turn the water on".
Me too! My reactions are horrific! You there is "fight or flight response? There is also "freeze". That's the one I got.
Retail. I lack whatever gene it is that allows you to be screamed at and held accountable for sh!t you have less than zero control over.
Coworkers just shrug and say "Don't take it personally." Like "take it personally" is a button you have to press. If someone is in my face calling me an idiot (or worse) because something rung up a different price than they thought it should, "take it personally" is my only setting.
