"Real Life" is a jolly little poem.

I happen to be a musical genius - composing & playing - as some here can verify. I would post a link to some of my music I've uploaded to the net but, unfortunately, the link is on a different PC that happens to have gone phut.

I have a talent for killing threads and hitting submit before I've checked my speeling.

Maybe a little bit. Every time I examine my "talents" I find that they are inferior to someone else with the same talent.

I write plays.

I am very good at put downs but only Oscar Wilde was famous for both of these and then they broke the mould.

Noel Coward was not averse to the occasional put-down.

Not really a talent and more of a pastime as I have not done much for over a year cos I've been trying to do some sci-fi writing.

This is music and a few tracks are here plus a couple of vids if you are registered including a short clip with some music of my snake eggs hatching.

I look forward to reading your writing Professor Gaarder,  bookmarked for later [:)]

That's rubbish kid!

Make it Lady & JnA hit the nail on the head!  You ARE priceless!

Making straight A's and being able to run long distances, or being athletic is not what makes you special!  Being yourself....being Ben is what makes you special!

Stop worrying about other peoples talents and focus on yours!  If you want to be better, work at it and don't give up!

......and by the way.....Most of the 'successful' people I know were not straight A students!  Most of them were average and some were even below average students!

I have found that true also!!!! They are right Ben... and when I look at your writing and the posts you make I see an intelligent bright young man with loads of potential.. and you just need to believe in yourself a bit... give yourself a hug and know that you can do or accomplish anything you want to do...

Do you really want to be a RUNNER OR A WRITTER, OR A MECHANIC...... WHATEVER YOU DECIDE WILL BE TERRIFIC... People will and do love you because you are you... unique and smart and bright... and witty.. Know worries.. You are great!!!

Around here "being Ben" isn't a compliment. "Being Ben" means you an annoying spazz who doesn't know when to shut up.

"Being Ben" means playing video games even though you'll never be good at them. Oh, that reminds me. *Crosses track off the list of things he has a remote chance of being good at.*

Around here, "Being Ben" means, being a loser. I'm either invisable and ignore, or obnoxious and hated. There's no middle of the road.

Ben, I felt just like you do now when I was 17-20 years old. It takes time sometimes to feel comfortable in your own skin. It is only by; making mistakes, annoying people and trying to do new things that we learn; how to fit in, what we are good at, what we need to work at and eventually to like yourself.

Liking yourself is the toughest because you are more aware of your own failing than others are. when you are young you tend to dwell on them more. You need to be kind to yourself. Any time something goes even slightly right, pat yourself on the back. If you like yourself and are kind to yourself people will start to be kind back.

The talking too much thing is a nervous reaction that we all suffer from. I type too much....you might have noticed.

NC you've had enough mothering for one day. Us ladies better stop before you drown in oestrogen.

I think that whether we realise it or not that everyone is talented
in some way or other. I enjoy researching things for others oh and
me too.
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.

NO you don't.. Losing is part of life.. But you won't always loose that is just part of the learning process.. now you can work on what you feel you could improve on.. its all about repetition and learning from previous attempts.. If you give up then The learning stops.. and you are the one in control of what you want to learn and how much you want to learn it or how well you wish to be at what you are doing.. Don't give up on your dreams and wishes and soon they your efforts will reward you.. It just takes time perseverance and belief in your self.. just know you can do it... Learn from the experience and profit from it don't let it eat you alive....
