You are a very beautiful GOOD-FOR-NOTHING!

What do you do when you discover that you are actually not good at anything? Today has been an incredibly discouraging day. I find that I screw up way more than I ever do anything right, and that I am actually not good at anything. Even the things that I have always prided myself in being good at, I find, I'm not so good at.

I might as well be living off welfare. Honestly, what an awful, awful day.

I'm not a jack of all trades and I am not even good at one trade. What does that make me?----

A good-for- nothing.


  1. If it makes you feel any better. I feel like this all the time. :)

  2. You shouldn't think that because it isn't true in the slightest.

    Sometimes I feel that way because I get turned down, rejected, or not given a chance, but I usually deal with it by doing something constructive (like watch a movie) and then try and write something therapeutically simple- i.e. a dopey comedy sketch.

  3. Sounds like stuff coming from far away, years back. Notice it, relax, take the time to find when you first felt that way. Process it and get up the next day. You, CB, may be beautiful but that's not all you are.

    And many people won't understand you. That doesn't mean you can't. This page looks sugar coated. I like the picture you posted that you berated yourself for not posting sooner. That seems more real. More core. But then, I don't really know you except in passing and in these posts.

    One thing I can say for sure is you are okay and have a good day.

  4. You tried to start a land war in Asia, didn't you? Those never turn out well. I loved your Placebo cartoon - he was so cute. Poor little guy.

    Now remember, you DO have skills - madd movie quoting skills. Just because that's not a marketable skill and you can't put it on a resume doesn't mean it isn't freaking awesome. :) I know I for one appreciate it!

  5. I think that of all the people I know, you would be among the foremost who DON'T deserve to feel this way. You haven't earned it through obstinate, constant stupidity.

    So please, leave the feelings of worthlessness for those who are actually worthless ;)

  6. Oh Courtney, dear! I'm sorry that you feel like this...did someone say something to you? As I say to my boys, "Who needs a spank?" ;)

    I love that pill cartoon, classic! I hope you are having a better day today. ♥ ya!

  7. Oh girl, when I think of placebo's, I NEVER think of you! Those two words(you and placebo) do not go in the same sentence!
    Pick yourself up and brush yourself off. There'll be better days ahead! I'm sure of it!
    Hang in there.
    Hugs to you girl!
