You are still very young Vin. A lot of people your age still haven't developed an interest in any particular thing/field yet.
Don't despair just yet. You have plenty of time to come across a hobby or interest that you find you may possess a natural talent in, that could end up helping you in a future job/career.
As for your school work, is there any way you could get some tutorial help with certain subjects you are having trouble understanding?

Your difficulties in school sounds more like a symptom of depression rather than the cause.

Some typical symptoms of depression include:

* difficulty concentrating, remembering and making decisions

* feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness

Yeah, but thing is.. People around me all have something talented, and i want to find that thing i have soon, so i could improve & learn from it and make it into something i really love doing.

Being ''good'' at something is very relative. We're all good at various things, we just don't know it because we're all good at it. Walking, breathing, recognizing faces in shapes.. all things that are quite special when you look at them with a fresh perspective.

Many people that seem naturally talented put a lot of effort into the thing they're doing. This can go unnoticed very often, and so it seems like they can just do it out of the blue. And might very well started out ''not being good'' at it. The thing is, they're passionate about what they're doing first, and good at it second. They do it because they enjoy it. You see what I'm getting at?

Find something you find fun, rather then something you're good at. The word ''talent'' is overused- and often out of context too. There are a few people that have natural talent, but it's the far minority. Many more become good at something by sticking with it. It's also a misconception that everyone finds something they're good at. There are a lot of people that are -just- average. It just goes unnoticed because they don't stand out as much.

And besides, Vin, you don't have to impress anybody to be valued. If it turns out that you're really not good at anything (which I doubt with a passion), it doesn't mean you're any less of a great person.

In short; Find something you find fun to do, you're in no way obligated to be outstandingly good at anything.

I am good at my profession.

I am trying my hand at other things. To avoid having a hobby that is my work. We do want escape from the professional world, don't we.

Puma has got a point there, again. " Find something you find fun to do, you're in no way obligated to be outstandingly good at anything."

I have felt that I wasn't good at anything at your age and it made me feel crappy. Most days I had to defend myself instead of socializing to others. I had a hard time concentrating on my homework and would just sit in my room at night and listen to my CDs.

As some of the others are saying you just need to find something fun to do and find a work to benefit you.

From reading what you have said is that you like to play games and socialize and are good at both. You just need to find a way to improve other areas of your life. As well if you put the same amount of effort in other things you may like to do those things too.

For the past 2 months I have been going to the gym, although don't like goig I found the more I go the more I like to do it since I feel better about myself and starting to look a lil better.

Just have fun and I am sure you will find something you are goood at.

I got terrible grades in high school and terrible degrees in my economic studies in college. Then I switched to a different line in terms of higher education and I now average A in physics.

I never was really good at anything growing up and now im 26 and still not good at anything... Whats probably most important is that you try your best to find what makes you whole and grow as a person.
