Just because someone is a loser in highschool doesn't mean they go on to be next CEO of a highly successful internet company. Loser/Nerd doesn't mean you are automatically smart and super talented. Many highschool loser/nerds don't fare any better after highschool than their more popular school mates. Being socially awkward can be hindrance to getting a job later on in life.

Exactly.

Okay, so for some, being a "loser" develops resilience from suffering unpopularity and constant insults.

Some of us, however, merely develop mental illnesses - which mess up life even more.

What you said is absolutely true.

i don't know about the last one: a loser becoming successful in adulthood. Winners learn to win after many losses but many losers do not go on to win.

Depends on YOUR definition of success. How many people do you know personally and where are they now?

I think that 'losers' move on to a different game and learn sooner than the 'winners' that there is life after High School. Too many 'winners' get stuck and never move on.

I think what is missed here is that 'losers' that make it have had a good support system. Parents that congradulate the attempt and not the 'win' vs. parents that drill the child to always be the perfect Miss or Little Mr. everything.

I have a 'special' child that was always the one picked on and bullied. She always was at the bottom and never had a lot of freinds. She was a loser by every diffenition of the word. Today she has a job, nothing great, but she is happy, excells in what she does, has a wonderful husband and two boys of her own. Success? I think so.
