You're Untalented
Posted 4/19/07 , edited 4/19/07
My parents/friends always said I was crap at singing but I know that anyway. I just do it to torture them. =]
But my parents do compare me to other people my age who's parents they are friends with. But that's almost part of the Chinese culture to do that. It makes me work harder anyway.

hahahaha yeah.. when i do anything, she tells me i suck =P
i dont know.. i kinda dont care really.. i just go "YOU SUCK MORE!" hahaha in a joking manner though of coursee +S
sometimes i dont know if she actually means it, or is just joking about it. but yeah.. i dont know.. it doesnt necessarily make me feel bad. most of the time i agree with the comment lol.

^If she's saying it all the time, she's probably trying to tell you something .

Well... artistically I'm decent enough to pass by in class without any negative comments...

But I kinda wish I was untalented =|

All the time, same story, over and over; The talent is there, he's just not utilizing it.

All my teachers in every subject expect me to go to a career along their paths, as do my parents, but I'm not ready for that kinda decision yet...

Kinda gets old after a while, but still.

Haha my parents consider me a dumbass by their standards. They both think I don't try hard enough and waste my time reading about random things.

Heard that all the time by one specific person. It's either "You suck." or "You fail." If I'm feeling really down that day, I would really fall into depression after hearing those.

That's why if you really think that that person suck, please don't say it out. Keep it to yourselves. It's harsh even though it's the truth and you had no idea how hurting those words are.

And while we are at it. I do wish I'm talented in something...Had yet to find it, though.

Lol, I once had a conversation about that. How your teachers always say the good old "You have potential, but you're not using it"

I got a worse case then this. Have you ever been told you're good or even awesome at something when you really aren't at all?
I get that a lot at drawing. I'm not good at all compared to other artists yet my art teachers tell me that i'm "talented" and how great my pics are instead of giving me some kind of critic. That somehow bothers me.

No. But I think of myself that way. Because it would be a bigger disappointment for someone to tell me I lack talent than for me to know myself to lack talent. At least, that's what I think.

Yeah, most pedagogues are being pretty soft at that. You know, they're supposed to be encouraging and a lot of them are overdoing that, so there's no way you could take them seriously, since they're acting like a bunch of hippies.

^ A lot of school art classes are based on effort rather than beauty of product, so they don't want to squish your creative motivation.

I have one friend who consistently tells me I suck. However, she is one of those people who is bluntly honest to the point of rudeness with everyone and thus I try not to take it too offensively.

When I ever I sing I get the you suck. You know what, I do so I really don't care. Does it stop me from singing? No, if anything it encourages me to do it louder. As for drawing well if stick figures and a whale eating stick figures was considered a good drawing by anyone I would by amazed.

My ex told me I didn't have any talent...But he's a loser and was jealous because I have more talent in my little finger than he'll have in his whole life.

I don't really hear that from family..it's more of a joking way if at all. But I do get that from someone who calls herself my "friend". She's always telling me that I suck or that I'm a loser..and then next thing you know she's asking me for help.
