I Am A Neet Or Hikikomori Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 29 People

    I am now a NEET. Who would have thought.

    All of those countless hours browsing and being addicted to 4chan. Going on Gaia Online. All of those times playing video games or being on Xbox Live running away from my responsibilities and management of balance in life. Watching anime, reading manga, drawing, roleplaying...

    I've been a NEET for about 3 years.

    Sigh, This aura of uselessness is absolute,

    feeling demoralized. wondering in thought, consumed by habits, and intimidated by outsiders. Discouragement by those that seek to "help me" and fail, while it's completely frustrating to even speak too them, though they pretend they do not see my flaws. I don't know exactly when...

    I graduated in 2012. I thought about going to

    college, but I realized there's nothing good for me. I can draw, but I'm not good at it. And I didn't like school to begin with. I never payed attention or did well. I just went there for friends. I don't even know how I managed to graduate. So yeah. I don't have a job or school...
