That sounds a lot like depression to me. (I hate the phrase 'feeling sorry for myself' because it's so often used to describe emotional pain and mood disorders.) And, BTW, I'm pretty dang sure you're not useless...although I do understand the FEELING. But, feelings aren't facts!
I understand 'not getting a chance' after so many failed job interviews I've been to, and I can totally relate to not having $$ to get something up and running business wise.
In my far distant memory I had a thought you were in school. No?
I think what Nik said about volunteer work is good, if there is an area of work that interests you. I am a volunteer for a Hospice org. here, and once a month I volunteer at our local chapter of the Funeral Consumer's Union (it's an org. to keep people from getting ripped off by funeral homes). Both those things are right up my alley because dying people do not bother me a bit, and I am very comfortable with their family members, and with the second group, they paid the fees for me to be a notary public so I could notarize Advance Directives (like living wills, etc.) for people.
I have to admit, I wouldn't have gotten into it at all if my sister hadn't said, hey, let's go to hospice training--you wanna? So, I will hope that someone says to you, hey, let's go do xyz--you wanna? And you'll say yes.
I am also excellent at writing rambling responses.
Hope you'll feel better soon.
> I'm bored. I am bored. I'm not doing anything. I'm just wallowing and feeling sorry for myself. There's nothing I can do. Nobody will give me the chance. I don't have money to force myself a chance. I'm bored, and I'm useless, and I'm just using and wasting and there's no way out. There's no way but to accept the way everyone is mindlessly trampling. I'm just so bored.
