People Break Down Which Activities They Wish They Were Really Good At
The list of what I wish I was better at is long and arduous.
I've tried many things, but sticking it out is my issue.
I know I'm not alone there, though.
That is a universal theme.
We all have the desire to be great at everything.
But let's take them one by one.
Then we can do it all.
Maybe with more practice.
Redditor DecentIllustrator439 wanted to know what things we all crave to be accomplished at.
"What do you wish you were really good at?"
Sports. Even a simple sport would be nice to be decent at.

"Damn I feel you. Realized a few years ago that I haven't made a friend in years and also had trouble keeping the ones I had due to neglecting. Worst feeling."
"My answer was simplifying, articulating, and solving complex problems or ideas. I think it’s the most incredible thing listening to people at work or in life that confidently frame up complex ideas and just 'get it' and the money usually follows. I’m with you."
"Playing the piano or a guitar. I am 56 there is no reason for me not to try but instead I waste an hour on Reddit."
"I've been playing guitar for about 25 years and still not very good at it. But I enjoy it, even if nobody else enjoys hearing it. Would have been nice to have been good though."
"Guitar teacher here. I have students ranging in age from 7 to 73. It's never too late."
"I started playing piano for 10 months now am 29 and i always keep reminding people that it's never too late just go for it we live one life so don't have any regrets!"
quality of life...
"Finding work that both satisfies my soul and pays handsomely. The quality of life is just so poor when you hate your work. And life sucks so bad when you are just scraping by money-wise. I've been seeking this holy grail my whole life. Still haven't found it."
"May I suggest manufacturing, I just got into this field after working in food/retail my whole life and I love it. I assemble medical devices, and mainly I cut the tubing. I love it, no customers I just sit and listen to music and chill."

"People don’t realize how helpful it is to know more than one language. It does nothing but benefit you."
Language is essential. Like why do we even have PE? More languages.

"Stop procrastinating. 🙃"
"To be honest, I wouldn’t mind being really good at procrastination. I feel like it would make me a genius level multi-tasking person capable of completing any assignment the day its due."
"Singing. Love to do it, but sound like a dying cat."
"I’ll second that. I started dating an avid karaoke fan a few years ago. Between lots of repetition and her coaching, I improved from abjectly miserable to almost mediocre. I think I’ve hit my ceiling though, LoL. Basically, I still suck."
"I’m an avid karaoke person (though not your avid karaoke person) and I just wanna make sure this message has made it to you. Karaoke is 90% about having fun, and 10% about vocals. If you’re having fun, you’re doing karaoke right."
"Not caring what others think."
"I think it will come with age, when you realize not many really actually care about you, you stop caring too!"
"Once you master this life gets a LOT more fun. I love being the middle aged man at the light with the windows down singing along to Brittney. And once you can own it, most actually stop judging."
100,000% a muscle
"Remembering things about other people. I always forget birthdays or anniversaries and stuff so when it comes to doing anything meaningful for the people I love it’s often too late or half-a**ed."
"There are stories of famous people who would write down anything they learned about a person and keep a rolladex of cards with the info on it. When they go to see them again, they pull their cards out… it’s kinda creepy but it works."
"As someone who never once memorized a thing in his life until he got to college, memory is 100,000% a muscle. The more that you intentionally remember things, the easier it becomes."
All of it...life GIFGiphy
"Life. I'm bad at life."
"No one's good at it.🤷 We are all trying to figure it out while being a decent human being."
The pursuit of knowledge is an admirable one, even if it's something really specific or something just for fun.

People Who Have Stripped Down In Front Of Their Friends Share Their Experiences
Nudity. Naked bodies. Birthday suits.
It's all a part of life.
So why are so uptight?
Redditor BolognaAnt wanted to hear about the times we've all shown a little skin amongst friends.
"Have you ever gone nude in front of your friends? What was it like?"
I've only been naked at the gym and with my initmates. So I guess I'm bland.
Who Cares?Atlanta Braves Win GIF by MLBGiphy
"Yes weekly for football and occasionally swimming. No one cares."
"Play hockey, shower after the game. People are hanging out everywhere. All different sizes. Nobody cares."
"Woman, played mens hockey my whole life. I’ve seen too many naked men that I never wanted to see. Hockey boys really don’t care."
"Yep grew up playing hockey, kind of get desensitized, eyes front or high and you got no issues, but no one likes the guy who got his head down in the showers."
In the Army
"Yeah, being in the military its kind of unavoidable, and you get used to it."
"The military taught me 2 things."
"1) how to be comfortable with my sexuality to an unnerving degree..."
"2) how to make dudes not comfortable with their sexuality extremely uncomfortable. Number 2 provided endless amounts of entertainment. I regret nothing."
"Yeah even having conversations and making eye contact in the showers was normal. LOL."

"We had an actual penis measuring contest."
People are weird with nudity options.
Naked EverywhereFamily Guy Dolphin GIFGiphy
"I live in Finland, a country where nudity isn't a big thing. Whenever we go to the sauna together, if we are not going swimming, we are always butt naked. It's really not a big thing here."
In the Scene
"I was in a play in college and had to do a nude scene. All my friends, my parents, my GF at the time and her parents/family. The scene took place in a doctor's office, so it wasn't anything sexual, but def a strange experience greeting everyone after the show."
"Same - I used to do a lot of theatre in my younger days. Got naked every night for 2 weeks in front of friends and family in a relatively small city where you know everyone. It was awkward, but my co-star was HOT, so I thought 'no one’s looking at me anyway.'"
"Junior year summer. Me and my 5 friends 3 guys 2 girls went skinny dipping. I chased my friend down the street a** naked running as wide-legged as I could."
"Edit: told my buddy about this comment and he wants you all to know, he has seen me chasing him like that in his dreams throughout the years on occasion."
"Went to boot camp, got naked in front 60 other grown men every day. The first week was super awkward y'know we were all getting used to each other. But then one day someone just ran in there and started spinning his member like a helicopter and it all went downhill from there."
"When I was in high school we had a mandatory swimming class, so for the first time unlike regular gym class we had to fully replace our clothing. I had no idea what conditions would be like at first, so going in I did the smart thing: wore my swimsuit under my clothes. But getting out of the pool I was freezing and panicking and realized I still had no idea what the expected protocol was."
"So I just stood at my locker for a while and eventually got the nerve to pull my suit off, with half the class standing there Apparently my friend figured out something was wrong and just as my trunks came down, he wrapped a towel around me and pulled me to a stall, that I hadn't noticed existed."
Dream on...Game Show Dancing GIF by NBCGiphy
"I had a dream that there was a game show I was on and I was nude and people took a vote on how much they liked it and at the end whoever wanted to would be picked by me to be my friend."
So, how comfortable are you in your own skin?
