I have this huge resistance to anything that takes any effort, like school or exercise. I've been a NEET for 4 years now and I just can't make myself do anything meaningful or effortful. I see all these normies getting a degree and being active and just putting in lots of effort in everything and I don't understand how they can do it. My day consists of laying in bed or playing video games or binging on junk food and that's it, I literally can't do anything. I don't really know how to fix this, I've told my therapist and they said basic stuff like "start small", and the thing is I can't even do small things. For example I tried to learn programming 2 years and I did it for like 10 min, then I took a break and never touched it again. It wasn't even hard it was just beginner stuff like printing Hello World. I really don't know what to do anymore, I want to change, I really do, but I just can't. I never even graduated high school because I couldn't make myself do the work.

The strange thing is, it's not that I don't want to do the work, it's that I can't make myself do the work. I'll spend hours just staring at the assignment, begging myself to do it, but I just can't. It's like the part that connects my intentions to my physical actions is severed.

You are trying to run a rally without a car and without fuel. First find the car, find the fuel… forget the rally, for when the time comes, it goes naturally.

You won't be needed of extra effort to achieve whatever your warpless mind may motivate you into, but it is involuntary. You are warped meanwhile

I have realized that when I remove the internet from the equation, I get more done. Not much, but I accomplish more than nothing. At the same time, I am at a disadvantage when it comes to learning about things, be it language learning, programming, etc. without the aid of the internet. I am always afraid that I will miss some crucial bit of information relying solely on books and yet I realize that people got by without the internet for millennia. Having to pay for books and wait for them to arrive in the mail is not fun either since I have grown to dislike engaging in piracy. An addiction to free, instantaneous information and gratification is amongst the worst addictions a person can have.

>Life is inherently rape and cohersion since birth is an imposition therefore all life is a prison regardless of how you model this world in your brain. You might think, for exemple that your parents are your best friends and feel a deep bond with them and they love you and take care if you, but this is a bond similar to Stockholm Syndrome since you were coherced to exist and they feed and shelter you so you dont die the same way a black slave from birth might get fed and sheltered by his owners and given good treatement (which is not always the case from parents ofc) and the slave gets feelings for his master for giving him good food if he works extra well. Etc etc. The situation is the same with parents and children even though its almost never seen in that light (same as wiyh ajkmal abuse in corelation) They reverse the logic to make the kid indebted to the parents for life is a gift and they take care of you so you dont die… I dont know were I was going with this. I m rambling my antinatalist thoughts lol

Correct.

Anybody else feel like their tastes in life have stagnated? I keep looking back at shit that used to make me happy at earlier points in my life. Rereading the same old books, playing Ratchet and Clank and some old C&C games from when I was younger. I keep looking back at Albino black sheep and reliving those crappy flash animations trying to feel something again. Anybody else reliving the past?

fits this thread really, ironic how people here especially seem not motivated to do anything anymore, yet some are enough to go out of their way to shit on anything popular

thankfully i never really had that big of a problem with stagnation, i can watch shows or play games i really like again and again and find something new every time, sometimes i rewatch a show after years and understand it completely different, after i finish something and found it really good i try to consume everything there is about that before moving on to the next thing, also my taste evolves, like i am starting to get interested in genres i have not cared about for many years before.
maybe it has something to do with me feeling pretty hopeless for all my childhood and youth, so whenever i had the chance to get my hands on some anime or games i really could appreciate them, but that's just how it was and still is for me personally.

agree with others opinions on youtube etc., i try to limit my exposure to scrolling through imageboards, reddit, memes, even reading through youtube-comments to a minimum. Just take playing mobilegames, where they want you to come back to work for them daily and click through all the shit to get your instant presents like gacchas. I think that could really fuck with your short-term-attention-span, but younger people will feel that way more in the future maybe, wonder how that will turn out.

That's the hard balance of social media. If you wanna find new things, sometimes you have to engage in it a little. But its very easy to get caught up in whatever petty and pointless culture wars people are constantly waging.
Some call that "discourse brain" and I've definitely struggled to move out of it. I deleted all my accounts and have installed certain apps to hide comment sections.
Makes it easier to actually do what I set out to look for.

What does your world look like? How do you live your life? Is your world a nice place?

I think the world is fundamentally bad (a la Ligotti/Inmendham), but there are ways that we can extract enjoyment from it. As for how I live, I believe that we have partial control over how we feel, so I force my brain to feel energetic and happy.

You are completely incorrect. The nature of duality means that extremes cannot exist without an opposite. If all that existed was pain with nothing to balance it out, there would be no reason why this pain would be interpenetrated as a negative. It would just be meaningless background noise.

It's like how antinatalists say that they can't commit suicide because they're neurotic about how it's going to hurt, or they just cop out and say that they're biologically wired to not kill themselves, ignoring the fact that many other humans have successfully ended their own lives throughout history without near the level of angst as the average antinat. They're using the values of life to assert that nonexistence is preferable; the problem is, these values are completely irrelevant from nonexistence's point of view. The void doesn't care for your pain or your tears, the concepts of preferable or non-preferable are completely alien to it.

I'm currently having problems with the God question and I think your chart illustrates it well. I can understand, from an intellectual perspective, that "we are all gods." That God is within us as well as outside us, that everything is connected. I can even….feels this. So it's not merely a dry intellectual abstraction. I can also take it to some logical conclusions. For example, when I pray, I'm actually praying to myself, because God is within me, and I am "God" so to speak. (or at least, I am a part of God). My biggest problem than, is not acknowledging this fact or even feeling it. Instead, I take the inquisitive nature a step further and say to myself.

"It's one thing to say I am God, but another thing entirely to act Godly."

And that's where the hole system falls apart. Because, in my mind if acknolwedge something so meaningful as being God yet continue to stew in my old vices, without advancing in virtue, it means that there is a big disconnect.

I'm not talking about transforming into a saint either. I just mean basic things like "be more patient, read more, exercise more, fast more, take care of chores better, be less anxious and more couragous, etc."

What are your feelings on this dilemma?

I'm a NEET in my early 20s and I have no idea how to talk to friends I meet online, I run out of things to say and end up just posting memes or saying LOL. Another issue I have is finding people who I can even relate to in the first place, I've found some people on small discord servers but again I run into the first issue with having nothing to chat about, imageboards are dead and slow and Reddit is full of normies and the subs that seem like board type discussions are really slow like r/NEET and r/doomer. Discord is full of normies and you can never get any meaningful discussion since the chat is whizzing by, although maybe I haven't found the right server.

I guess part of the issue is that I don't really have any hobbies, I spend all day watching YouTube videos, anime, and movies, I don't do much else because it seems like a massive chore, but I guess that's the depression talking. I've tried talking about media like anime but I can't really think of what to talk about.

Let me tell you the nature of friendship. You find your friends who are naturally inclined alike, and then you take over. The feudal aristocrats were just a bunch of friends. Genghis Khan made a ton of friends.
Basically, for you to find friends you need to be like a gang leader and recruit them because that is the purpose of friendship.

those aren't true friendships that's just a survival mechanism
there's no reason to have friends anymore and i find it hard to believe people on here were anything more than someone's bitch boy or clown to laugh at when they talk about friends because that was my experience as well

I don't like normies because I can't relate with them at all, while with wizards I can have some common ground and some decent discussions. With normies if you try to talk about emotional problems it always comes down to problems with their SO or their boss which is completely unrelatable to me because im a hiki, talking about hobbies always ends up with talking about sports or normie social media or some shit (I don't even know what normies like because I rarely talk to them).

I see two probable explanations for this stinker of a post: the first being that anon is simply pretending to be mentally disabled to put on a good show, or the alternative. Neither seem very hopeful. Leave wizchan and try some place more amenable to your needs, like the club, or whatever baudy establishments you normstinks affix yourselves to.

Do you guys already prepared for retirement?

I start working blue collar job from 21 until 31 Y.O.
Actually I hate my jobs but I also have no skill for other jobs. Always feeling down and depressed when I work. Also I'm social retard and have no friend in my working place.

Frequently I think to quit my job but I need money to support myself but it seems I can't working more than 3 or 5 years again since its make me always think to end my life.

My parents own a McMansion on a good part of town but I have two siblings. That house is my only hope of getting any sizeable amount of money. Other than that I'm already as retired as I'll ever be I suppose. I work part-time jobs that amounts to maybe 20 hours a week. I have a lot of free time for an adult and don't do shit with it, makes me feel guilty in a way.

I just live in the moment and don't plan for the future. I only have a few hundred in my account at any one time, so I have no savings or retirement fund or anything.

Fortunately, I live in a European nanny state, so the most likely outcome for me is that when my parents die, I'll just keep living on gibs indefinitely. I've been on them for 6 years now and my parents have been on them for a lot longer. Our house is owned by the local council, so I might be forced to move to another smaller place after they die, but that doesn't really bother me.

If that doesn't happen or if this country falls to shit over the next 30-40 years, then I'll probably become a vagrant or something.
