NEET and Hikikomori General Thread


Have you had any success in trying to change your life?

>NEET


>The acronym for (Not In Education Employment Or Training)



>Hikikomori



>Hikikomori is a Japanese term when translated into English it means pulling inward being confined (Acute social withdrawal) hikikomori is a distinct psychological disorder that refers to the phenomenon of reclusive adolescents and young adults who have withdrawn from society seeking extreme degrees of isolation and confinement due to various personal social and psychological issues in their lives. (A shut-in who stays at home in their parents house does not work or go to school and lives in isolation in their bedroom for 6 months or more)



>Contrary to popular belief most hikikomori go outdoors but are just isolated socially and still spend most of the day and nearly every single day confined at home in their rooms


>The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare defines hikikomori as a condition in which the affected individuals refuse to leave their parents house, do not work or go to school and isolate themselves away from society and their family in a single room for a period exceeding six months


>The Hikikomori Criteria and Diagnosis


>1. Subject spends most of the day confined at home, nearly every single day.


>2. Subject purposefully avoids social situations and social relationships


>3. Subject shows clear significant functional impairment,


>4. Subject shows social withdrawal symptoms for .a duration of 6 months or more


>5. Subject has no physical condition nor other severe psychological problem that is the cause of the social withdrawal (Mainly excluding people with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders


>While hikikomori is mostly only a Japanese phenomenon cases of the condition have been found in other countries


People who work go to school or have a social life are not hikikomori.

People who work are receiving an education or are in vocational job training are NOT a NEET

Why can't you? Do you have a mental disorder holding you back?

I'm worried your parents will eventually kick you out. In another thread I read about a hardass boomer dad who dropped his NEET son off at a homeless shelter. You could fake a suicide attempt and then try to get on disability. That could buy you a year or two peace.

I honestly don't feel that bad about being NEET anymore, I think I was ultimately way ahead of the curve.

Ignore that part I wrote about elder wizards not feeling misery. It was poorly worded. I would still trade a life of rot and solitude for a life of turmoil with them, if given the chance.

>>252337
>Do you have a mental disorder holding you back?
There's definitely something, although self-diagnosis is a tricky thing and I'd hate to push several labels as cause for my failures without good reason. Going by the symptoms: severe anxiety, depression, and (maybe) autism spectrum disorder which would explain my development as a child. Nothing has been officially diagnosed yet, but it's about as obvious as a broken bone sticking out of my shoulder. I couldn't hold down a job or attend college classes because the pressure from being around others was too great.
I somehow forgot to mention this, but my breeders have already made countless threats to throw me out. Faking a suicide attempt would buy me some time, yeah. It would also put me under the eyes of the state's mental health institutions. I may be surveilled at all times, forcefully medicated and branded a danger to my own self, just to reset the timer. I'm afraid it'll make a real suicide attempt that much harder to carry out.

What you see in that video is a combination of COVID and retards rioting, looting and hurting more people just because one asshole, who happens to be one of Obama's sons (trayvon, that large baboon who caused the Ferguson riots, AGAIN), was dealing counterfeit money and resisting arrest got his ass handed to him by another asshole who believes in the protocol, Use force first, ask questions later and never thinking to deescalate a situation.

The gooberment is not really contributing to anything of what is going on(positively or negatively). Well the only negative is that they allowed COVID to spread as much as it did due to "muh freedumb gawd".

I am sorry to hear this. The majority of parents in this world are worse people than (mass) murderers, serial killers, child rapists and the most sadistic people on the plant because they create these people. They think just because THEY brought you into this world without a plan on how to raise a human then it is YOUR fault if they do not get the result they or society approves of.

In the end, humans make decisions and breeders are currently under no obligation to support and properly raise the offspring they produce. As long as they are not physically or sexually abusing the offspring they are free to do as they wish.

I genuinely like being a wizneet. Once i finally convinced my dad i truly do not want any sort of interaction with other humans, hes chilled out on prodding me to make friends and get out of the house. I just wish i didnt have to live in his attic and could have my own house in northern michigan in the middle of nowhere.
I also feel bad about being a leech, but i cant even bring myself to shower more than once a month, I know any attempt at success would only result in failure. When i think about my future it’s generally pleasant, im very unhappy but that has nothing to do with being a wizneet, in fact, the little amount of happiness i do have is a direct result of my wizardry and refusing relationships or connections with people. I would be very happy if i never had to go outside or physically interact with another person ever again.

7 years as a hikikomori and honestly I prefer this way of life as I have gained the ability to leave my cave even had succubi flirt with me give me free shit but nothing appeals to me out there so I remain inside talking to my fellow wiz-kuns.

Why would I work if I can leech from the state or breeders?
To buy shit? I only need cheap food and internet as I do not even play games at all etc..
My NEETbux I prefer trying to help other wizards buy dakimakura of waifu.

I go to see a psych and it is a meme as I spend a lot of time reading the same resources they learnt for years plus constantly interacting with mentally ill people but I know a non biased observer is good obviously.

This one is better than others I get told to get a GF or they do not beleieve me when I tell them how absolutely abysmal my living conditions are etc.

Current shrink is great she says she does not care if I an hero which I like as honest but she said I need to figure out what I want in life to be happy and it is nothing normalfags want.
People may call me a failed normie but I feel those that could function yet find it so disgusting how normalfags interact and society as a whole I do not want to contribute plus I get this intense draining feeling near normies.
It is not as if I tried to be normal and failed so joined a subculture creating a new norm, I just know there is nothing out there for me and I get scared fellow mages as online culture which is not cucked is getting smaller and smaller…


>>251320
It is all a giant meme.
There is this huge misunderstanding that all hikikomori types are this way and would be happier interacting with normalfags, working and fucking succubus.
Blatantly false for a lot of us despite having mental issues and I bet that a cause of some of our depression is society itself.

Yeah, I've been locked out of the rat race for good. My life has always been terrible due to not having enough money to survive. I'm stuck on third-world tier disability income until I die, which is very stressful and sucks.
