I Sit In My Room and Do Nothing All Day

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 878 People

    Ever since I moved out of my ex boyfriends house

    and came back to my moms house, I've just sat in my room all day doing nothing but using my laptop and leaving my room for only the occasional ciggy, food and when I have to use the bathroom. It's been about 2 weeks now. I'm doing alright. That's about it, thanks for reading.

    Every day i hate myself

    for being so lazy and selfish instead of spending time with family and friends my i have no energy to sometimes even get myself out of bed. I hate the thought of doing nothing and the more i do nothing the more i hate me.

    This is what I fight with every second of every day. The urge to do this, what I am doing now. I ******* hate it. I don't want this at all. I am 25. I am qualified. I am a fantastic actor. I can get work. I am experienced. I am educated. I am classy. I can be anything. What I...

    when I'm not studying my for my diploma, I'm playing video games. I've been playing since I was 3yo. People misconstrue this as "Me doing nothing all day", whilst it may be doing the same thing day-in and day-out, it's certainly not nothing. Most people just cant comprehend...

    For almost a year now, I've had trouble getting out of bed to be any kind of productive. Sure, there've been a few times I've gone out to get drunk, to go play pool, or just sit with a friend to talk and laugh, and smoke a cigarette and have a beer or two. Sure, I got out of bed...

    The title pretty much sums up everything.

    My room is my comfort zone. I spend most of my time browsing online, listening to music, drawing, reading, playing games and watching animes or dramas. It's unproductive, but those are the things that I look forward getting back to whenever I take a step outside... at one point...

    it's been getting very hard to deal with.

    I don't know if I'm just down about it being winter, or if something's wrong. I just have no motivation to entertain myself anymore, and it seems like my friend circle just keeps fading away.

    I did nothing but hide in my room all day today.

    I keep going to bed later to that I won't wake up till the afternoon. Maybe the more I sleep, the more I won't exist.

    I mean, I suppose it's impossible to literally

    "do nothing," but I'm sure most everyone understands how doing nothing just implies a lack of significant activity.
