People Explain Which Things They're Exceptionally Bad At

There's something about logic and social skills that just don't add up when I am playing board games.

Put a board game in front of me and I freeze up and I can't seem to remember rules or know how to make decisions to save my life.

What the hell is up with that?

Not that I'm incapable of playing and enjoying a board game, but my friends have certainly had their patience tested when I've been in the room!

I suck at it, and it's okay.

I just have fun regardless.

People had plenty of things to mention about themselves after Redditor RufusInBoots asked the online community:

"What are you exceptionally bad at?"

"Thinking of something to say..."

"Thinking of something to say when people tell me to say an interesting fact about myself."


Awww. Breathe! This is more common than you might think.

"The humans I've drawn..."


The humans I've drawn are comparable to the symbol that indicates a women's restroom. That's how bad they are."


I feel this.

Don't ask me to draw anything... unless you want stick figures.

"I don't think..."

"I don't think I'll EVER get any better at mornings."


I'm not a morning person either... I feel this. I have suffered through this for years.

"I worked at my last job..."

"Directions/navigation. I worked at my last job for over a year and I still needed my phone GPS to get there every single day. Even on smaller scales, playing games with my friends becomes a hassle any time there's a large map involved because I WILL get lost."


We're all doomed without technology now. Doomed.


"Opening an envelope. I can't just use my finger to smoothly open it. I end up having to tear the flap into tiny pieces."


Are you me?

I think we are the same person..."

"You'd be wrong."

"Time management. I always underestimate how much time I'll need to do something. By a lot. You'd think I would learn. You'd be wrong."


I'm the opposite. And when I've lived with people who appeared to have no concept of time, it would drive me up the wall.

"Even then..."

"Flirting. My first boyfriend had to announce to me that he was flirting. Even then, I didn't know what to do."


This demands a sitcom.

Give the people what they want!


"Visualizing 3D shapes. Like when you see those questions that say "What would this shape look like if you flipped it over?" I'm terrible at those."


They don't compute for me either. How do people do it?!

"I've had severe..."


I've had severe insomnia as far back as I can remember. It gets completely ridiculous at times."


Ummm... you might want to get that checked out, friend.


"Sticking to a project.

I have more ideas than I have time so I end up jumping from project to project... art, music, stories, design... I don't remember the last time I completed something! Yikes!"


There's something to be said about knowing your flaws. It's not the end of the world––there are no doubt plenty of other things you are good at. You are no doubt the object of envy for someone out there!

Kids start going to school from the age of five, and for the most part, they spend more time at school than at home. Because of that, teachers can become very important figures in the lives of their students.

Some students don't have the best home lives. Some keep it to themselves, but others confide in their teachers.

Curious about various situations, Redditor Delicious_Mastodon83 asked:

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, " estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
