i saw this thread >>>/lounge/275733 and i used to be the same way and i thought every day was a blessing to be alive and i LOVED playing video games and eating food. i was happy pretty much every single day starting at age 16 when i dropped out of high school.
im 26 now though, it's been 10 years, 10 years of sitting in this chair consuming media and scrolling endlessly on image boards and twitter. now every day is ruthlessly painful, mentally and physically.
i slept 16 hours yesterday because im tired for no discernible reason, maybe malnutrition. both arms hurt from carpal tunnel, i have back pain from scoliosis, i have shoulder pain from anxiety, my teeth are rotting out of my head and cause fevers and i can't afford to get them fixed. im scared anytime i leave the house. i hate everybody, i hate everything.
i try to consume old stuff i grew up with to relive the good times. but i can't, because it's become hateable. watching these anime i used to like is just a constant eyeroll, i roll my eyes and fast forward every few minutes because it's become such a cringe slog of childish cliches.

the teeth are the worst part. ive been thinking about killing myself because my teeth are making me sicker every day and it's pretty much all of them, the only hope for me is to have them all extracted and replaced with dentures, but that's 10 grand. i think i just have to kill myself before my teeth cause a brain infection and do it for me.

which brings me to my point which is: isnt this the experience that all wizards will have someday sooner rather than later?
sitting in a chair talking to no one for entire years objectively causes agoraphobia and many many physical health issues, i'll probably start shitting blood soon from damaging my body sitting down all day.
if you aren't depressed, it's because you haven't been wizard for long enough.

You're correct that some people will use statements like this to justify evil. As it's said, even the Devil can quote scripture. However that doesn't change the truth of my statements. Maybe this story here illustrates my point better-

"There is a Taoist story of an old farmer who had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. "Such bad luck," they said sympathetically. "May be," the farmer replied.

The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. "How wonderful," the neighbors exclaimed. "May be," replied the old man.

The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune. "May be," answered the farmer.

The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son's leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out. "May be," said the farmer."

how is that story relevant to the rest of your post?

 No.246989

I'm illustrating the ambiguousness of moral statements. We as men should simply remain stoic in the face of pleasure and pain, and thereby reduce our suffering

that story is not about being stoic in any way. thanks for outing yourself as a psude spiritualist who has no idea what the fuck they talk about

You're just being negative. The story is entirely about maintaining equanimity in the face of everything life has to throw at you

there are many problems with self improvement, but one of them is that a lot of people who propagate it mistake correlation and causation. i got told that my life is shit and that i feel like shit because i am a lazy fat fuck who doesnt have a hobby or talk to people or any of that bullshit. so i put in a genuine effort to improve and lost 50 pounds and took my vitamins, picked up some hobbies and left the house more. but other than the changes i made, things stayed the same for me. and the reason is that all of the things that self improvement tries to address are symptoms of a problem rather than the actual problem itself

 No.247008

>>247006
The issue with self improvement is as follows: In short if you don't value something you won't gain from it. Simple enough right? but what nearly no one gets and what they shant be expected to get because it is so obscure, so distant from the normal experience of being alive is that nearly everything people do has the end goal of gaining social status in some form to attain among other things to cement yourself socially and have a family as well as gain admiration. This is the indirect goal that people strive for unbeknownst to themselves and of course you can gain from the activity alone in a pure sense.

"it is better to have tried and failed" is the popular adage but is it always true? not to discourage anyone but be warned if you do try in this case and fail you will only feel worse nay doomed. to clarify by try I do not mean in the typical way via attempting and failing but succeeding only to fail in gaining anything from having tried because of your very nature being parallel from enjoying whatever the fuck normal people enjoy.

It's chicken and the egg. Dealing with symptoms can make changes on the inside, for example exercise and mental health and emotional health, these things in turn can help you become aware or more capable of dealing with more subtle problems

 No.247057

>>247055
No. There was /r9k/ but we all know about that shit by now. Also people who are asocial will obviously never be able to socialize, even with others who are asocial. Everyone has different limits and in these circles everyone is very touchy about said limits. You will never find a community of like minded people. It doesn’t exist.

There are no good imageboards. But wizchan is still particularly obsessed with sex because the whole concept of it revolves around sex

Yes there is one but no one would want to share it here sorry. Look around pro tip it won't be in google search results.

one of the many many crab forums would be to your liking and not wizchan.

You are sort of wrong for 2 reasons.

One is that a lot of art is good, there's just too much of it and people have limited consooming potentials. I've had people say my music is good, I've gone into SoundCloud shill threads and found decent music. even downloaded a few I liked. Just that most is merely adequate.

Also mmr is a bad example cause that stuff shifts constantly to specifically only include the top 1 percent. Even if players are getting better at the game overall. Not everyone can be in the top 1 percent so it's inherently ridiculous to expect that. Doesn't mean you're bad at the game.

 No.247080

>>247079
The deeper you get into music the more niche your preferred sound becomes and less and less music that matches is at your disposal. Soundcloud is like a rubbish dump there are far too many "artists".

The people here saying it is impossible to get good at something miss the point also because anyone can just about learn the skills not that they could do anything revolutionary or new with it.

Does a booru for non anime art exist btw?

 No.247081

>>247080
quote 1 person saying it's impossible to get good.
"talent does exist" is like the most controversial opinion of all time even on a website like this of all places hahhaha. people froth at the mouth and get all defensive about their medicore non-professional hobbies.
your fucking around with a guitar is no different than someone casually playing video games, you dont need to cope this hard when someone brings up talent because it's not even applicable to you at this point.

With practice most people can become SUFFICENT in a skill, not the best of the best. Most people playing violin and League of Legends aren't doing it to be number 1, they're just doing it to have fun. They're hobbies at the end of the day, people that do them for fun, and it's only if they find them particularly fun does that turn into an obsession. And if you're obsessed, you're in a state of flow and don't really care about how good you are at it.

Just take Quentin Tarantino. That guy knew everything about film before he became a filmmaker. Even if he suddenly couldn't direct anymore, he'd still have that drive that compels him to obsess over movies like he did at the film store.

The problem is you cunts here are trying to find meaning in hobbies, the sideshow to life for most people. There's fuck all meaning in being good at bibleo games and painting well. Tell me why you should be able to be the best in the world at something with effort? No seriously, why? Why isn't it enough to just have fun with it like with most people?

>The problem is you cunts here are trying to find meaning in hobbies, the sideshow to life for most people.
Finding meaning in hobbies is easier because a lot of hobbies are low effort moderate-high gain. Being good at real life tasks like studies, job, philosophy and whatever takes a huge amount of effort
