I worked for 5 years before covid hit despite not needing money in the first place after my parents both sadly lost their lives to cancer. Over 3 years of taking care of my mom and later my dad when he got sick made me introverted and i didn't even want to go out and hang with friends. After it all and i was working i was never happy and borderline depressed, but my friends stuck by my side through it. Ever since covid began spreading i quit my job, i expected to be bored but the boredom never came, i finally felt happy again after 7 years. In a non-stereotype fashion though i started spending alot of time with my friends whenever they wanted to do something, i unironically believe if i didn't quit my job i would have been in a bad place and drifted away from the friends i've known my whole life.

No, I got diagnosed with Stills disease and went on autismbux 5 years ago, I enjoy painting and drawing everyday. Only downside is the medication slowly losing effectiveness and the increasing pain everyday.

I really don't want to become a fuck up people who are working or at school.
But it seems to me that my NEET lifestyle is going to end after this summer, because my mother arranged something for me.
5 years of NEETing finally took that burden of a childhood off of me. But I made bad use of my time, I could have drawn more, played more, watched more. But the internet wasted too much of my time.

NEET life isn't sustainable unless you can get autismbux from the government or can stand mooching off your parents forever or something.

I can't do the former and I refuse to do the latter. Joining the air force soon, just waiting on paperwork shit to get processed. Doubt I'll go full normie from it but I'll be in at least decent physical condition after bootcamp and will have some kind of longterm career.

Ultimate goal is to just be able to live by myself again.

I'm currently NEET living bare minimum off savings to ride out COVID, I'll probably "have" to get a job by December if I want to keep a roof over my head. My dream though is to get good enough at drawing to pay the cheap rent of my studio apartment just doing commissions. I could easily live off $700 as a burger so long as I don't get some kind of injury that forces me into healthcare debt. As a NEET my only gripe is I wish it were easier to self-motivate and cut out distractions like web browsing.

NEET chooses you.
NPI.

... So I point one back at 'em, but not the index or pinkie
Or the ring or the thumb, it's the one you put up
When you don't give a fuck, when you won't just put up
With the bullshit they pull, 'cause they full of shit too ...

If you're nice, I'll be nice back.
If you're full of shit, I will see through you.
I know what working is like and a majority of the menial shit is something anyone can do if they have the skills. So no, I don't feel bad. I feel bad for others for having to put up with that in order to survive.
The only thing that might make my NEETdom permanent is my health and I can already feel it being worse than it was a year ago. You don't think things would escalate, but it does at a pace faster than you will fathom. It sucks.

Just because I work, I'm a riajuu? As others have said, not everyone has the ability to be a NEET. In order to attain the most promising long-term life sustainability, a career is necessary. My father is dead, my mother is poor, and I live in a place without autismbux.

in my country the government gives money. it is also not very easy to get a job.. you need high education for anything decent and for someone not very social and quite autistic like me that is really hard if not impossible. its all about social skills these days so better leave it to those who are good at it. the competition would be insane too so one would probably die of the stress if they somehow manage to get one of the good jobs

More or less same here, 5-7 years in my early twenties. Then I repicked my university, failed it again. Then I was NEET for couple more years with occasional few months breaks of getting money somehow with "part time jobs"(full time but I quit them always in 3 months trial period) and what not. Now I am on the longest streak ever of having a job(2 years+). But there is no real recovery. My lifestyle is the same, no irl friends, no socialising with anyone, same hobbies, same bad habits. Only difference is waking up every day to exchange 8 hours of my free time(or lifespan if you will) for money I can use on my hobbies and escape further into my fantasy land.

If you have no wants and either parents or government cares for you and you enjoy it, then go ahead.

I've never worked a "real" job in my entire life. For better or worse though I have a broad range of abilities and finding freelance jobs from people is easy when you live in a rural place, I'd go so far as to say it's almost lucrative, but you need good people skills. It's nice since you can work when you want to and don't have to answer to any real boss, though it comes with it's own difficulties because you have to regiment yourself and build a good rapport as well. Once you have a solid customer base it's easy to get them coming back to you. In a sense, people pay more for "you" than they do the product.

Here's a question I'm not sure where to ask elsewhere - I need to burn through $2000 before the end of the month. It's basically the NEET dream; I have no debt and want to be wholly irresponsible but I'm not sure what I should spend it on either.

I'm coming up on 4 years here, while I do sometimes get depressed about myself or my situation or feel lonely, I still have no desire at all to be a part of society.
I've never worked a day in my life, which is partly why the future scares me, especially since my parents said I should get doing something soon now that the current situation is winding down.
There's nothing I'm skilled at or enjoy related to work I can think of so I'm sure almost any job would be soul crushing.
I could try to get autismbux, and possibly I'd get them? (I don't have autism although I did start to get tested for it, but my parents didn't fill out something they were meant to, that aside though I already have stuff I assume counts as a disability) but I feel my parents would resent me for it because technically speaking I could get a job, and thus they'd see it as me being lazy. Applying without their help seems difficult and even if I did, I dunno if they would want me to live here anymore if I got it, and with just autismbux I dunno where I could afford rent, it'd be a place I wouldn't wanna live assuming I could find anything at all.
I don't know what to do, maybe I'll be forced to go back to school or get a job, and it'll turn out okay, but I doubt it.

Was looking for work prior to the pandemic, now it's near impossible to find work, and any openings that there are, hundreds apply for, even low end jobs... killed my whole drive to search until the pandemic ends.

Unless you are insultingly hideous(<2
3/10), this isn't set in stone. Yes, people WILL be less tolerant of you being socially retarded as a grown-ass man, but if you're willing to push through that
, Grind, and part of you enjoys at least SOME aspect of socializing it's not game over.

Ha, yeah, I remember this site. I used it quite a bit in the beginning when I was forced to reintegrate. I even messaged the writer/owner over myself feeling like I was complete lost cause because of my circumstance. He replied and was a really sweet guy(this was 7 years ago tho).
>I think the key is to not hate yourself, if you're self-loathing or feel that you are disgusting to people then you can't ever get better.
Yes, honestly, the best thing you can do for yourself is to build your self-worth. Literally everything that comes after becomes so much fucking easier after you value yourself as an individual. Ambitions, Employment-prospects, how you come across to other people, self-discipline, assertiveness, I can keep listing shit honestly. You really have to ask yourself what you value and can see yourself working towards before you can really get the ball rolling in the aforementioned aspect.

Therapists often wax on finding what you're passionate about and working for/towards and I can't tell you just how much it can add to your life. I found what I was passionate about when I was 23 and I managed to find my own tribe through that, despite never being truly passionate about fuck all. I mean, yeah, I've played video games since I was 3, but I can't say I was all that passionate about it. It was just something I did to have some fun, or at-worst, pass time emptily

If your shithole allows it, look into some sort of work rehabilitation program. It helped me considerably but YMMV wildly. Look into sliding-scale clinics, check counselors/therapists and find one you trust. LARP as religious or truth-seeking lamb if you're looking for quick connections to even more resources.

To stand up straight with your shoulders back is to accept the terrible responsibility of life, with eyes wide open. It means deciding to voluntarily transform the chaos of potential into the realities of habitable order. It means adopting the burden of self-conscious vulnerability, and accepting the end of the unconscious paradise of childhood, where finitude and mortality are only dimly comprehended. It means willingly undertaking the sacrifices necessary to generate a productive and meaningful reality.

After graduating and working I've understood just how empty and unfulfilling the supposed proper life is. My faith in good future is at all time low and there nothing to look forward to except when the next eroge or manga I'm looking forward to is released, thank god for knowing Japanese so each week I can read magazines that serialize my favorite ongoing manga. Now I want nothing more than to be a NEET again and to become better at drawing, I only realized this after I had turned 25.

>> No.34125492

I've been working at a supermarket for 300-400 euro since 2009. 6 days a week. 8 hours a day. 1 hour 30 mins to get there 1 hr 30 mins to get back. I can't get any other job. nearly all of my income is used to pay rent and utilities. I've never had more than 150 euro in savings. I'm just so tired but I don't see any way to escape. whenever I manage to save up a decent amount of money something happens and I'm forced to spend it. its like the gods themselves hate me and don't want to see me succeed. last year I had to get 2 dental implants and the year before I got my laptop stolen (no, I wasn't careless, the guy threatened me with a huge knife, there was nothing i could do) I can't catch a break.

I want to learn some kind of skill and set up a patreon. Even 350 euro a month would be a huge improvement for me since I would be able to work from home, saving time spent commuting, and I would be spending several hours a day improving my skills further. drawing, 3d art, or some kind of game dev project would be ideal. the problem is that my job sucks out all my energy so when I get home I'm too tired to sit down and practice. if I had 10k euro in savings I would quit my job and spend an entire year doing nothing but studying and practicing.

I'm in this boat and I have only one piece of advice if you get lucky and manage to get a savings: have a super solid plan that you can prove works before quitting your job. You do not want to be a self-funded NEET squandering his hard-earned cash and time because you did not think it through. Trust me.

I find enjoyment in the failing of other people. Nothing brightens my day more than seeing people get their lives fucked over and killed by anything and everything that can tear entire families apart. Mass shootings and mass bombings, natural disasters, executions and warfare, gang rape and car crashes make me feel happier about my life. You start to feel better about your life in comparison. That's not to say that I have anything against those people, because I don't. It's just a tendency I have that makes me feel motivated and ethusiastic seeing others suffer, especially if those terrible events happen in the first world like Europe and the United States, but not places like Africa and the Middle East. It's a childish way of thinking but it helps me get through my day to day life

The pandemic is a blessing in my case as I can work entirely from home instead of going to work everyday. I'm litterally doing the exact same work except I can sleep for longer, don't have to waste hours in commuting, don't have to be surrounded but normalfags coworkers and can organize my work time how I want.

It's been like that for a whole year now and slowly I started having a lot more energy, started going to bed and waking up earlier, finally started learning Japanese and enjoying it a lot.

I'm still as lonely as ever but a least work is a lot less of a huge time and energy sink as it did before. Learning Japanese gives me something to do that I both truly enjoy and feels like I'm not wasting my time doing it as I'm acquiring a usefull skill and getting a little better at it every day.

However I fear what will happen when the pandemic will end. Could takes months or years but it will happen eventually which means going back to my previous life style and that could very well erase all my attemps at getting better so far. Either I'll endure it or it's going to be NEETdom for me.

The worst is that normalfags act like they just can't wait to stop taking it easy so they can finally get fucked hard again. Apparently the workplace is the best thing ever for those people.

At least I had a nice taste of what it's like to be able to enjoy life a little while having a job. It's just sad that tens of thousands of people had to die for that to happen.
