I'm a fucking neet myself, so is this thread for neets who don't want to recover like in the other thread?

No. 859860

>>859851
Don't want to recover/ don't want to take steps yet to recover. I'm at the point where I just want a long break from trying to recover, and return to old ways. But that would seem anti-recovering so I just made a new thread for neets who don't want to change. Sometimes it's too late to recover for some people. Hope they don't feel too alone, even if it's through a screen humans need community.

No. 859949

What's the line between neet and just loser? For example, parents who support you but require you to work one day a week at a part time. And the rest of the time you're living like a hermit. Is it actually just "not in education employment or training"? Or is it more of a lifestyle/mindset?

Neetdom is a luxury tbh, your parents have to be nice and rich enough to care for you. It can be miserable or great depending on whether you're depressed.

No. 860327

I've quit every job i've ever had besides like one after a month or two because bosses are just complete and utter assholes. Unfortunately, I have a car payment now and like I could do a delivery app but I'm still terrified of driving and don't know directions for shit. I used to think that people didn't want to be my friend because i couldn't drive, but now i just realize that i really don't have any friends and leaving the house makes me extra paranoid.

NEET life was really fun for me when I was a highschool dropout but after a long enough period of time, the depression gets so bad. It's probably ok if you have rich parents, though. I'm twenty four now, and I don't have that luxury, so I'm pretty much putting off the work life as long as I can because I can't do a 9-5 without having a breakdown. Do any of you live on disability?

Now I have a job and a bf, I socialize every day, but when I was a NEET I felt so much more individual and creative. I feel like getting a job and bf were beneficial overall but sapped my sense of identity and individuality. When I was a NEET I drew fanart (I used to get recognized by developers when I would make vidya fanart, feltgood), watched a ton of movies and series, and wrote a lot, too – all things I could do for little to no money.

Can't stop thinking about bad interview experiences I've had in the past. I had one where the manager berated me because I didn't have experience in the shitty HRIS system they used because I'd never held a similar position before. Even though the person at the first interview told me I'd be perfect for the role. Makes me feel like I will never get hired. Every time I get to the second interview stage I never get the role and it just gets my hopes up. Why do I fail even when I've prepared with notes, rehearsed common interview questions in STAR format, show up professionally dressed? I think it's because I am ugly and have bad social skills (I used to be bullied in school). Who wants an ugly awkward woman working for them? Yeah I wouldn't hire me either. I should've taken the hint when I had so much trouble getting a required internship in college I had to delay graduation by a semester.

I got sick right as I finished high school, was thrown into a rehabilitation facility for some time by my own parents because they didn't want to help me and told lies to the staff to have me admitted, and now I live like a neet because I feel like I don't have enough psychological strenght to work a job I don't like for so much time. Weighing on my parents makes me feel guilty, but at the same time I think they deserve it for what they've done. I make some money with art and I plan to make it into some sort of job. I also take care of my dog. Honestly doing things at my own pace feels nice, and the end results may not even be that different from having a random minimum wage job. I've never had friends even when I was not a neet, so the loneliness doesn't bother me that much.

i think it's the attitude. A loser doesn't give a fuck about working, is happy to live of other people's money, but is otherwise a normal person, with friends and relationships.
A neet is more reclusive, imo, either by depression or by choice. But i read neet as it is normally used as a synonim of hikikomori.

I didn't like being a neet, because i hate being under my parents thumb (even though they are getting more generous and patient with age), and i like working if it is something worthwhile. Media bores me.
But honestly, if someone drops a wageslave shitty job to become a neet, and uses their free time to work on something that makes them happy or needed, like caring for an elderly, or becoming a handyman or farmhand or housewife/husband, or working gigs, i can't really judge. Wageslaving in shitty soulsucking jobs is fucking hell.

I love NEET life. I think many people are just wired for it but society makes us all have guilty complex about such compulsion. I loved school, or rather learning, but I always hated working. If only going to school is a job, if only I could just collect knowledge for money, then I’d consider it. But be it manual labor or white collar, normalfagging absolutely destroys my mental health, by the 9th month of any given job, I’d be zooted at work constantly.
NEETdom is double edged sword though. It is very easy to fall depressive and get stuck in a cycle of misery if mismanaged, you’re also very vulnerable if you don’t have support network.
But with just a little discipline and finesse, it’s the best. I study whatever the fuck I want, I have time to eat well and exercise, to indulge in hobbies and hone new skills. I actually practice time management and goal setting on my own volition.
Luckily I don’t have to struggle for money atm. I draw for spending cash for fun but that’s about it. Although I made decent amount of seeding cash from meme stocks and crypto this past year so I’d like to take investing more seriously.

I’d like to hoard enough money to just fuck off to a third world coastal town and grow old with some friends and cats.

I have no desire to be seen or heard, no desire to speak or be spoken to. no desires at all really. no social media, nothing but anonymity, and even then only a passing interest in expressing a thought coming from an “I”. it’s like by not participating in society, I’ve forgotten my name. even worse, by not participating, I feel I deserve to forget it. to lose my name and lose my mind too.

I'm 24 too. I work a 9-5 and have had breakdowns but I work from home so it's not as bad. It's a boring as fuck admin job but I can afford to live alone in peace, not with my parents. But before this job I was on disability from my old job due to mental health reasons. When I came back no one noticed so I just didn't work, got paid for 2 months (plus the pay on disability) then put in my notice kek. So I was considerably NEET for a few months. It was ok on disability because I was going to therapy in the mornings and in the afternoons I would just watch tv, draw, read, do whatever and not have to stress about work. I don't think I could get on disability again unless I had a psychotic break unfortunately. It seems like a lot of work to get semi-permanent disability, you need paperwork from doctor visits spanning years along with diagnoses, references, etc. and I don't go to treatment regularly. Maybe if you have a lot of professional help in your past and start to keep track of it you could build a case.

And they want to keep dishing out lockdowns to make ppl poorer. Plus no matter if you get the vaccine or not there's new strains and most ppl are going to have long covid. Literal downfall.

NTA but it's more nuanced

Life in the west from 1945-1970 was objectively better than life now. For starters, you weren't derided as being a loser for just leaving school and going to work in a factory, people were much more accepting of class differences back then than they are now. There was less obesity, you didn't need a car to function, rent and homes were cheap and people were genuinely healthier and happier. Things were more social. And introversion was reserved for Ted Kaczynski tier assburgers and not for 20% of the population.

In the west now, materially we're better off than most parts of history, but I do think we're degraded due to our cancerous stress inducing lifestyles. Between the internet addictions, shit diets, isolating lifestyles and extreme oversocialization, we definitely do suffer more than the generation before us. It's a new type of suffering we really haven't come to deal with yet.

on the other hand, i can't exactly start living in my car because i, too, have at least some capitalist brain rot and i don't want to give up my dumb anime merch. life is hard. I try to be nice on social media but it's still hard to make friends because i guess my bitterness comes through and i can't really relate to others who were either born rich or have this crazy work ethic but adhd really fucked things up for me.
