I'm american and I hate americans

Born and raised east coast usa. I'm relatively charming and able to hold conversations, but overall people kinda just piss me off.

They make up rumors, miscommunicate, talk behind your back, etc. or maybe they're just completely stupid. everyone puts up a front to be socially accepted. it's pointless.

I generally believe that most people's misery in the first world is just worthless bullsh*t people make up in their own heads because drama > the null void of an existence that doesn't require survival. You have no real purpose at that point. you can either go into public service, build something, or live to serve your own desires and ego. Most go with option 3.

It all seems 99% negative. Humans are generally toxic in my experience. Family, friendships, relationships; all shit. No one respects me no matter how well I carry myself or how often I stand my ground. I don't trust anyone.

I navigate it very well but honestly I hate most people. I don't really want to speak up about it. no point in wasting my time and energy because everyone just wants to be right even when they're in the wrong. There is no winning unless you've already done something in life. all they'll see is some 'loser' who isn't a sh*thead like them. honestly even being a celebrity or politician won't help you spread positivity. Nothing impresses anyone because they're all so self absorbed they'd only care if it was their own accomplishment

Deep down I care for my brothers and sisters in war torn, hostile, occupied, impoverished, and famine strucken areas, but most everyone else is just a bunch of useless brats imo. This country is so divided that the toxicity has seeped into every pore of the social fabric here. it's getting worse

idk how y'all deal with it. being bitter or reclusive is bad too because you would just become more of an outcast which will lead to additional toxic vibes directed at you and you'd become even more miserable.

I literally want to floor it and drive off a bridge most days. My only solution is just be a winner and live for some meaningful purpose you actually care about.

    You may want to consider getting some therapy.
    You have a lot of good points but the weight of that knowledge is poisoning you and some therapy may help to detox.
    I know there's a lot of stigma about seeing a therapist but they're honestly there to try to help people out.

      Sorry, dude. There's no way to fix the masses but if you feel good about your own living then that's a start. There are other people out there who are disgusted with how many snowflakes there are in first world countries complaining about silly stuff while some people are wondering if their house will get hit by a bomb or they don't even have a shelter to call home.
      Find charities you trust and throw most of your money their way. A little bit of cash from tech salary can make a big difference in the lives of some less fortunates.

      tbh it's just hard to find anyone worth being friends with I swear no one is trust worthy they just want to use you to look good (photos) or for $$$ and if you can't provide either you're basically worthless

      you need to be aggressive to succeed

    For one, you don't need to be ashamed of your country or culture. It is not you!
    For another, America is far more tolerant than most other countries.
    I'm from India, and the culture is much more superficial and primitive. People are obsessed about ethnicity and lineage in marriage now than anything else --America 40 years ago was more tolerant. Yet so many Indians on blind are so defensive of their culture, the slightest criticism gets personal attacks as you'll soon see in response to this comment. So why do you have to be so upset about this?

      +1 thanks for honest and brave sharing of your opinion. I wish many more Indians are like you. Admitting and acknowledging the shortcomings is actually an expression of good self esteem.

      I'm happy to share both perspectives. Indian Americans even adjusted for income have the lowest rate of crime, drugs, teen pregnancy etc. Some of my fellow citizens will acknowledge this but not the former.

    Yeah yeah yeah, you're the one who's woke and the sheeple Americans are so dumb and full of themselves right? Put down the black eyeliner, stop listening to My Chemical Romance, and grow up. Eventually you'll realize how stupid you sound making sweeping generalizations about everyone else and wondering why no one likes you.

    You’re not alone. A large portion or the Democratic base hates America and Americans and blame them for almost all of the world’s problems. Travel more, live for a few years in other parts of the world and it will change your perspective. Saying this as someone who moved to the US in my late 20s after having lived in a few places in Europe.

    I'm from the East Coast and know about the vanity that your talking about. I moved to California (valley) for a bit. Every area is a mixed bag, but people there seemed to just enjoy others being happy in an open-minded culture. I'd never received goodbyes in the form of "enjoy life" before and people really meant it. The sunshine does wonders for the average person's happiness. I have been welcomed with open arms by mutual friends in the more rural areas (once Jackson county, once in a suburb an hour outside Berkeley, once someplace in central CA) and given a place to sleep and food hours after meeting them. They opened their doors for future excursions too

    Outside the bay, people just want to live with the purpose of being happy and enjoying life's adventure without caring too much about money or other people's opinions.

    Everyone I spend time with feels like this is common (though not quite this extreme, tbh) and we take serious steps to make sure those people aren’t in our circles. It is a pain, it takes time, but it’s worth it.

    And remember that there are thousands of groups of people like the one I’ve described who also feel similarly to you right here in the US. If you’re in the Bay Area/SoCal, feel free to DM me. Our common interests are what matter, and being decent/respectful, and that’s about it.

    Try some other country or culture. Maybe Europe or Canada or Caribbean. You may find communities which are kind and nicer. I personally feel being an “asshole” or a “jerk” instead of being “nice” and “kind” is rewarded in US which is leading to a collapse of its social fabric. This goes irrespective of ethnicity. People are more depressed than ever since they do not have genuine social connections or interactions. “Therapy” being a solution all the time itself tells how isolated people have become behind the perfect insta and fb lives.

    Maybe take a break and reflect a bit more over this. It’s true that some people continuously treat live like improv and dramatize situations to feel “alive”. However there is infinite potential for idealism. Being yourself is infact a hint to the other person to evaluate their position or behavior. Start teaching children if you want to bring a direct behavioral change in society.
