Wizards or apprentices still living with your parents, this is our thread.

How's your life situation? Do you have a job yet are unable to move out for some reason? Are you like me and been sitting on that college diploma for a year already trying to dodge the "when are you going to get a job" questions?

dad getting fired, immediate future uncertain, but it very looks grim, etc

my strengths in this situation are my refusal to drive, unsocial tendencies, and general complete dependence on my parents for survival. they know if they kick me out they are basically throwing their baby boy into the depths of hell

 No.153559

I'm alright for now, my mom enables my neetness because she wants a goodboy to make do things she doesn't want to(cigarette/pill fetching, cleaning, cooking, etc).
Ideal situation would be that I somehow end up in a easy job that pays well enough for a room and comforts(I havent looked for work in a long time).
My dad is the sole provider for our family at a shitty job with long hours, I wouldn't be surprised if his body gave out soon or he divorced my mom(she is pure shit and me and my brother are failures but I think he would prefer this than the unknown).
Worser scenario is that my dad dies/leaves and im left with my bro and mom, bro gets SSI and I would probably have to get a min wage job to keep us above water in a dingy room.
Worst case is that I get kicked out from worser scenario because I will probably get pissed about my mom/brother wasting money and end up homeless.

Live with NEET mom and sick grandma.

Our monthly income is basically from my grandma's elderlybux, although it's a lot of money, she spends half of it with health plan and from time to time my uncles come begging for cash, saying they're starving and then spend it all with travels and luxuries.

My mom doesn't want to work, so if grandma dies I'm going miserable.

I've been a NEET hermit for about 12 years now (got my NEETbux about 6-7 years ago, with included backpay), but have, more or less, depended on my parents my entire life and was, even at a young age, a very reserved & clingy child. I've always had some form of a comfort zone here (as imperfect as it could be at certain times in the past), which essentially never made me want to leave or do anything else. Nothing ever mattered to me, other than remaining in the safety of my space. Not going to school, not making friends, not making money. Just staying here. From the day I was born that has, and still is, been literally my only goal/wish in life. On that note, I do truly feel that I was simply born with the essence of a hermit woven into me. Maybe I was a Hindu or Buddhist monk living in a cave in a past life and I just carried that attitude verbatim into this one. Ludicrous, of course, but it's a fun thought to entertain regardless. Almost the only explanation that makes any sense, frankly.

I only made it as far as high school (dropped out after the end of my first year, after very sporadic attendance), which then followed with a brief stint at a video store that following Summer, before I withdrew completely from the world. That was pretty much the only one real job I've ever had in my entire life (outside of being a paperboy with my brother as a little kid). My time there was quite brief (about two weeks, I think). I was never pressured to get the job and was really just looking to get some extra cash for myself, but quit after I couldn't be bothered to get there anymore. I was a pretty big fuck up at that job, though. Let a customer go without paying, accidentally took the store keys home with me because I forgot that they were still in my back pocket, broke the bathroom sink after I was tasked with cleaning the store's popcorn dispenser (etc.) Sometime afterwards though, once I was starting to regret my decision to quit (it was a pretty laid back job all things considered and the video store itself was quite nice and even stocked lots of fan memorabilia, figurines & video games), my mother ended up telling me that, apparently, the manager himself had actually phoned here at one point, in the brief time while I was still working there, and was genuinely curious to know if I had a learning disability, or not. It actually explained a lot, to be honest. The guy did seem to have a lot of confused disdain for me. As if I was the dumbest cunt he had ever met. I recall him scolding me for not using the "right" broom when I was sweeping up one night. I mean a broom's a broom, who gives a shit. According to my mother, it would seem that he was literally on the verge of firing my ass for gross incompetence, so basically, unbeknownst to myself at the time, me quitting robbed him of the opportunity to do so. But, oh well. Knowing that, I'm just glad I was able to be such a nuisance to him on my way out the door. Hope he had fun fixing that sink. Prick.

Anyway, aside from recently upgrading my PC with some new hardware, I don't really spend my monthly NEETbux very much, if at all. I am "saving it" in a way by reinvesting the money back in improving/renovating my parent's house, which will eventually be my house someday (assuming the damn thing ever gets fully paid off, that is). If the mortgage wasn't an issue then, short of societal collapse (which itself is a very distinct possibility to happen within the next 10 years, frankly), I'd more or less be set for life. My parents have never had any qualms with my being an inert hermit and are, more or less, the perfect guardians for one such as myself. They fully accept that my WizNEETing isn't really a choice at this point, assuming it ever really was, and that I was more or less just born & destined for this life and, thus, accept me for who I am, as we all take care of each other the best we can. They're more than happy to leave me the house, but again, I just don't see how the mortgage will ever be paid off before they die unless either I or my parents (who are relatively old themselves now, Mom is mid 50's, Dad is early 60's) get a sizeable inheritance of some kind or we otherwise win the lottery, so in the end it's all somewhat of a waste. Hopefully the dominoes will all fall the right way for things to work out, but either way what can you do. I do sometimes wish I had caught the shooting star of the bitcoin craze somehow. Then we could all be living in a nice big three story house with total financial security. Like most who fantasize about easy fortunes they missed the boat on, it hurts quite a lot to think about.

There's also the possibility that my brother might end up subsidizing my existence after my parents can no longer do so, since he makes quite a lot of money doing research at a private firm and making knick knack furniture in his off time for bored rich people with more dollars than sense, and is going into a career in medicine that will probably make him even more money. Maybe he'll end up paying for everything, but again. Who can say. All depends on how the chips fall. Tossed about just like a ship on the ocean.

Ultimately, the only thing I want, or have ever really wanted, out of life is security to my NEETdom. Aside from my aforementioned gaming oriented PC, I have zero appetite for anything else. Not drugs, not food, not other miscellaneous consumer goods. Nothing. Ever since I was a kid, I've always had a startling lack of desire for the material. Maintaining & preserving my small comfort zone, while filling it with a few modest distractions (relative to the insane greed & gluttony of your average normo), is something I have been, and still am, more than content with. I just want to live out the rest of my life in this dusty house, living my very close to literal Oldboy-like existence (as I have been for the last 12 years) and then die.

Currently its great or about as good as it can probably get.

My health seems to be improving and the ZOG bucks keep on pouring in.

The only thing that could possibly make my life any better at this point is if Wendy's re-locates to an easier part of my nearby city to access, since currently its by the hospital and a traffic nightmare to navigate to if I want to get my precious Baconator fix.

Well thats not entirely true (my last post I mean).

My life could get even better still if extraterrestrials ever decide to land and are benevelent and decide to mass heal humans with their no doubt superior technology.

You're right, of course. Being honest, I'd imagine my brother would, if push ever came to shove, much rather stick me in a halfway house somewhere or, better yet, simply leave me to rot in the streets. Either way, unless he'd be willing to fork over money for the mortgage payments to my parent's/my house, despite already long having a place of his own, once they can no longer do so, then nothing else would really work, since there's not a damn chance in hell I'd ever live with him, and I'm sure the feeling's mutual. Like I said already, barring some extreme stroke of fortune financially for my family, I'm firmly fucked and am basically watching whatever time that's left in this place tick down, depending on the continued safety/solvency of my parents.

Life situation is currently great. I do minimal chores and errands and my parents only occasionally ask me to get a job and/or mental health help.

However for some reason my parents have decided to get divorced despite being over 60 years old. I'm anxious that this will negatively effect my future as a neet. I'm hoping that it will end up being to my benefit and i'l get 2 neet nests instead of just one.

I still live with my overly protective mother and my mildly emotional abusive father. I work as a cna/cma in a ltc facility and don't really care there. When im not working, I helping at the recently bought antique business my parents were dumb enough to get into and that's gotten them into a lot of shit. Because im a rather large and strong individual, I mostly do the heavy lifting and sometimes fix the computer problems. I work there for free because I'd otherwise be bored for that nothing interests me.c I'm trying to get into the whole antiques and have invested money in some items, attended auctions, and picked through estates, but that's all taking a toll already in the very short period of 4 months that we've been at it. The only thing I've taken away from it was an interest in collecting marbles.i know I said I had no interests earlier, but this is a very not active interest, add I just keep the marbles I find.

Im actually rather sick of it All. At 24, I'm unsure if i want to continue in this direction. Time will tell, I suppose.

mom takes cares of me, almost every whim I have, I realized thats why I grew up as rotten spoiled shit.says she likes me but I feel like she is tired of

my shit especially when influenced by my elder brother. brother more sucessful and would kick me out for sure if not for mom. dad is completely crazy

with mumbling nonsense all day, he is pretty much torturing me and mom with his behavior.
we cant ration money, they blow it on cigs and useless decorative crap, mom is too naive and wastes money on frauds while flat falls apart. Im

scared to put my saving into repairs since I dont want to fix something that would get snatched by my brother. I pay and loan them money from time to time since most of the time we cant make it and I guess its better from me than a bank
due to my non existantant social abilities and lack of experience Im unable to work anything else than mini jobs for few days.
Cant afford to move out, but its like that bad for everyone not ultra rich in my state. I would need to be ten times more sucessful to do that.
Would like to live a better life but without money its not possible and even with full time job it wont change that makes it the worse.

Gave up on this family about 6 years ago and have been wanting to get the fuck away from here ever since then. Since I pretty much gave up on my own life for a period it didn't mean much anyway, but now I have projects that I'm working on, thus a reason to care about my life more. Otherwise I would've probably just gone homeless, which I've seriously considered doing several times.

Right now my main concern is to GTFO and never see this fucking family again and try to forget about them as much as possible, but accomplishing that isn't so easy in this shitty world. I've worked as a welder apprentice for 6 months now, but the wage is too low to live on. So it's pretty much just one big fucking wait now, I just have to sit and wait until I finally complete my education and get a real salary. Could probably get a flat if I took up a loan, but if I'm gonna live in a shithole I might as well stay at home until I can afford something better. I might have to seriously start considering the flat option though, because I'm just too disgusted with everything at this point, this last Christmas in particular was just wrecking havoc on my mental health, when my sibilings came home for a visit. I seriously don't want to experience that fucking crap again this year. Unfortunately this world is just so shitty that you can't even get a decent place to live in peace on your own, without spending many years and degrading yourself to get such a basic thing. So I don't even fucking know man, I'm too fucking old and tired of this shit already. If I didn't have my projects I would've just said 'fuck it' and gone living out in the streets or something.

I live with my stepmom and dad. I have an associate's in accounting that is worth jack shit for now because I live too far away from silicon valley to take advantage of my degree (even at the lowest rung of work, bookkeeping and such). I only discovered it near and after my graduation because most of my career counselor's advice was "be yourself" and unironically had me do informational interviews (which ended up going nowhere as well).

I worked dishwashing for 6 months, full time until my hands were eroded to the point that I would easily cut myself on a whole lot of things that shouldn't be cutting me (buttons and such). Injuries became more common and every time I got an infection that would be 2 weeks of work down the drain. If I got cut protocol was wash+bandaid+condom the finger and keep working. It wasn't feasible. That was the only job I got in 7 years of searching.

My dad got me on board with his work, I started off as a laborer. For one day of work. After a day of testing and a day of work I got pulled aside by my boss and he was accompanied by HR. The conversation went something like this:
>your supervisor says you're not aware of the danger
"Okay, was there anything I specifically neglected?"
>l-let's focus on the problem rather than specifics
>we're terminating you
>you didn't do anything wrong
>go get some experience somewhere else and then come back
Which if I were to follow their reasoning it would be "go get hurt somewhere else" or the more likely "we just don't like you." Either way my father was pissed at them.

I will probably go back to dishwashing (albeit less often so my hands don't start infecting as often again) since we are moving into a house that we will own, and that requires money.

Overall I would say I have evaded the questions reasonably since most of the conflict is instigated between my stepmom and him, and only really agitated by our financial struggles (which I don't help out very much with). I try to make myself useful and don't cause trouble so I earn notably less ire from family despite my complete apathy for socializing and social normalcy. Theoretically if dad were to split off from more of her money mismanagement (i.e. wanting to take a vacation to hawaii and stashing money instead of using it to reduce house payments to ~$800/mo) and constant feuding he would try to get a trailer closer to his work. If that scenario were to occur I would probably stand to gain more despite the house situation imploding. Otherwise I'm still stuck out "in the boonies" in a small town where the only people willing to let me in so far is for that dishwashing job, and complete radio silence/automated-rejections from everyone else.

All I care about is living, working and dying in peace. There's nothing really worth living for, but there's also nothing worth dying for.

My parents are relatively good people. They let me laze around and have accepted my incompetence when it comes to functioning as an adult. I'm grateful for this but I also feel like it's their only choice if they want to continue to pretend to be good people.
It is after all completely their own doing that caused this. And not just once either, a total of 4 children they had, none of which are capable of living independently.

I honestly believe the total suffering from these 4 fuck ups will easily exceed that of a murder. They should be living in absolute regret for what they've done, except of course they don't. Because they're parents. And one of the givens of being a parent is thinking these sorts of outcomes are acceptable.

I'm 32 yo and also a third world citizen. Mom and my aunts go easy on me because they know I'm fighting to study and get a degree or technician degree after years of failures and isolation.
I think I will start a electronics technician degree next semester if I pass on the admission exams or if I fail I will try pass on college admittance exam and start a computer science program or electrical engineering program focused on energy generation.
I have few mental health issues, take anti psychotic drugs and I'm working hard to have a career so I can have money enough to take good care of my mom and aunts. I know that those programs will be ultra hard for me because I never was good with Math, but I have no choice since humanities programs here in Brazil are a one way ticket to poverty.
I would love not have suffer so much like I know I will suffer if I start those STEM related programs, but I have no choice at all since they mean a solid career and money enough to have a decent life.

I feel you, in Latam unless you are well connected to get into politics or open your own bussiness with dad´s cash then most career choices are just a waste of time unless you are willing to sacrifice your life and go into STEM to be a pajeet but at least get a living wage out of your slavery.

I dropped out after a second try to get my master's degree (long story, i'd have to explain the eduction system of this country: it was a special program), I have a bachelor's degree. After the summer vacation my parents urged me to get a job, which I found rather quickly. I work at a company as a software developer.

By now I'm already working for two years, I earn a bit less than 1500 euro a month. At first, like maybe half a year or something, i felt more or less ok (ok actually depressed as well tbh, but less). But then I started becoming more and more depressed.

So now I'm now working at the same company and even though I learned a few things, I haven't advanced a bit as to my wage, I also never asked for a raise I have no energy or desire to do anything, and I hate my job, and I feel like a cuck throwing all my time away, and working at this job I don't care about at all. I only work because of inertia, because my parents urged me, because I have to.

I have saved some money let's say 25k but my life goes nowhere, I don't look forward to anything.

I just wish I could disappear and stop existing.

At some point I did my driver's license theory exam, some time after I started working, and I drive to work with my dad (his job is close to mine). But I have no energy to pursue it further, to get an actual driver's licence. It's funny because I told all my colleagues that I will try to get it as fast as possible. And, it's been two years :D. Now all my colleagues are asking where are you gonnna get it, and I answer soon, they kept asking it over these two years as I'm working there.

I could move out, but I have no energy, desire to do anything at all. My life is now basically work + whenever I have free time I just lock myself up in my room and browse the net: boards, discord, …

Hell, the constant bickering about the mistakes I make all the time makes me feel like I need to defend myself even here.

So, closing cupboards maybe looks a bit neater, and perfectly straight curtain rails might too. Might as well do those if you can remember. What I don't get is how it can be so important to people. My mom looked at me like I had just strangled the cat when I said I was fine with not having curtains in the kitchen window.

Is there some kind of norman acceptance rite that underlies stuff like that, or do people really get really unhappy when they notice that the curtain rails sag a bit? I would never notice stuff like that if it wasn't pointed out.

Am I crazy for thinking it's weird when people put a ton of importance on stuff like that?

I've been living with my parents since I dropped out of high school, and then again out of college. I’m 19. Most of everything I have done is a result of laziness—a fear of working. Any intelligence I have is wholly focused on taking the path of least resistance, almost subconsciously, so that I can do what I want to do. I knew my parents would support me if I dropped out of high school, and so I dropped out. I convinced them to let me stay until I tested for a GED. That I did, and soon applied for college. Once there, I withdrew from two consecutive terms, despite it being my “one last chance”. Well, here I am, back in my house, pleading for one last chance. If I’m lucky, I’ll be going back to college again for the fall. It honestly wouldn’t surprise me that after all this, I’ll decide to drop out once again.

I really hate the idea of a job, especially some menial, minimum wage existence, slaving away year after year until you die. What a life. That’s been the impetus for my college attendance. I figured it’d be easier than a job, but it’s really not that different, in terms of being menial. It just takes up less time. If my parents didn’t have money, I’d probably be normal. Instead of striving for this strange state of pseudo-NEEThood I’ve grown accustomed to, I’d be striving for life without homelessness with the same fervor. I’m completely shaped by my circumstances, and am always flowing towards the lowest, most comfortable niche to settle in, as if I were water.

I really do idealize the life of a hermit. I wish that I could be infatuated by certain things, such as mathematics, or philosophy, and even reading. I tried for mathematics, somewhat. I wouldn’t care to distinguish myself. I’d be happy playing around with numbers and abstract things, all in my own little world. I’d be a wizard, content with the solitude of his tower, spending life contemplating esoteric symbols and magicks and spells. I look upon the masters, genuine masters of anything really: wood carving, zen, maths… I see them walk around with the same eyes, as if they were all reaching for the same thing through different mediums. Most of what I say is probably bullshit, but I need something to keep me going, or I’ll just end it. No, even that may be bullshit, since I’m a coward. But I’d like to believe it isn’t, else, well, who knows.

Continue living here in Brazil is not an option and I don't see a point in almost kill myself to get a STEM degree because I'm 32 yo and will end my degree old as fuck.

Fuck, I think the only solution is go to France and pray to be accepted as legionaire.

I am 19 and plan on enlisting in the army.
I know I will be surrounded by normals but honestly I don't care, i'm surrounded by normals here too.
I have $22 to my name and my only expense is dipping tobacco. Recently my father surprisingly allowed me to take his car for drives which has improved my life a lot. Whenever I feel the intense stress of my family moving around the house and the shame of living here, I drive up to the forest and sit there for a bit. I know im ultimately just wasting fuel and using another persons vehicle which is a bit shameful, but for that moment I feel as though I am my own person.
I try to train physically every day, with MWFS being pushing movements and TTS being pulling movements. Honestly, I have been slacking a lot due to depression and often I will put off training and sit in bed. Its a bad spiral but I hope to get out of it.
I look forward to when I am strong enough to confidently enlist with an airborne or even possibly ranger option, though it will be about a month. Just one more month of this, and then I will be constantly given something to do.
I find that when I am being forced to do things I do them quite proficiently but when I am left alone I collapse into staring at the wall and browsing chans very fast. Couple this with the fact that I will never chase sucubi and do not value material possessions, and the military seems to be a good option for me.
I am often told i'm useless and told to enlist immediately as opposed to ensuring that I am strong enough to do so. This certainly bothers me but I likely do not receive treatment as bad as many wizards because my older brother is a drug user that plays vidya in the basement all day and screams with his friends online.
My parents sometimes open my door and ask "are you depressed" to which I respond "yes" and then they say "clean your room you'll feel better" and leave.

You sound a lot like me, except I didn't go to college because I have this weird thing about being indebted to people, even if unofficially. I want to be a hermit as well one day, but I don't want to look at the world as a foreign and scary place but rather do my best to understand it and withdraw from it. I would recommend that you begin doing things that are uncomfortable for you. You're not a coward, you are the smart kid that knows he doesn't have to do as much work as the normalfags to get a roof over his head and food on his plate. The problem is that at some point an intense shame will come along (at least it did for me) and suddenly comfort wont matter at all.
I look in my parents freezer and see that astronomical amount of food and I don't feel thankful but rather like I am stealing.
>>157219
That's my plan if the army finds out about my lifetime of sadness. I heard a guy talking about how they didn't let him in even though he passed all the physical tests because he was american and the amount of Americans that desert is too high. I dont know how I would get around that. Maybe make up some story about abused or something i dunno. Either way, you are doing the right thing. I have a real affinity for anybody that wants to be a soldier, I don't know why. Probably because I want to be one, and also because it shows that a person doesn't really care about money or relationships. Then again there are tons of people who join up in an attempt to get attention from civilians, and some people do actually join up for the money if the alternative is absolute minimum wage. Still, it's not shooting for some grandiose life full of possessions and connections. You can stay on base 24/7, never go to bars, and let all the money pool into an account for retirement as a hermit living humbly.
Good luck to all wizards trying to escape their situation or trying to live with it. God bless you all.

27yo living with mum and step father here. I've been depressed and struggling with anxiety for most of my life ( diagnosed when I was 12 ). Things have been pretty bad lately. I've been feeling extremely depressed these last few months and to top things off my step father has been diagnosed with MND just recently. He's been given a few years left to live so I'm going to have to bite the bullet and really start trying to secure a job. I've worked in the past but always end up back at square one due to depression and taking too much time off work. Suicide is a daily thought but not an option because I can't put that pain and pressure on my mother.

I'm 24 years old, been leeching of my parents for two years now, and some time before that too. Applied to state college this year, but didn't make it. I could always go to private one and pay huge amount of money but I could barely afford it and end up with no money at all or get a loan and be unable to save anything for years. So I was thinking of working abroad, since working in my country without profession makes it impossible to save anything at all. The problem is (and I don't know whether it is a part of my mental illness or not) that I'm basically very, very lazy. Not all the time, but when it gets to me all I can do is waste my time lying in bed with my laptop, masturbating, playing games and eating junk food and it goes for several days before I care to become productive again. Maybe if i had a strong kick in the ass, like bills to pay it wouldn't happen, I don't know.
My parents are good people, so I don't mind staying with them for as long as it's necessary.

They might lack money but they probably have friends or they have good interpersonal skills which gives them the ability to find places to crash, work part-time jobs and generally survive. In succubi's case, they'll just live with their partner.

The average person is capable of being on his own at 18. They might not have the best life, but they'll always be able to find shitty cheap places to live and shitty jobs to work. The one thing that can hinder you in this is the lack of interpersonal skills and lack of any social capital i.e. people you can rely on, which is usually the case for wizards.

Thats sounds kinda great except for the guests part. Why "grow up" if you can sustain yourself like that, I dont know if you have siblings but if you are dependent on that little farm I sure your parents will inherit it to you.

Dont feel stupid living like that, thats what the majority of people in history lived like. Wagecucking is no virtue and you shouldnt look up to normalfags. You could even make it your normalfag killing farm with pigs after you parents die.

For third world people there is only two options for young wizard apprentices: study to be a military or study to begin a civil servant. Is almost impossible to someone without social skills leave parents home with 18 yo in third world countries because you will end up living at slums, ghettos or if you are a Brazilian like myself you will end up living inside a favela full of drug lords.
I think is easier for people in first world countries find a burger flipper job that you make money enough to pay the rent, but here in Brazil is impossible rent if you don't make about three times the value of the rent and have two guarantors that have a home totally paid.

I have 32 yo and have almost zero social skills, never had a bank account, still living with mom and I think when I finally have money, a bank account and money enough to leave mom's home I will be a 38 ~40 yo man.

Even when I was working I didn't make enough to live on. I was paying $400 monthly for medications which should have been covered by work insurance which I was also having money taken out of my check for. One time when I did use work insurance for a few trips to the chiropractor, apparently it was made public because the fat blob dyke in HR had a big mouth. She sat there on her ass all day in an office while people did physical labor 40 hours a week. She also made me close so I got home at 11:30PM, then made me open, so I had to wake up at 5:30AM. I'm pretty sure this was illegal. I'd rather live as a hobo than work in retail and there aren't many jobs where you can work alone. I don't even have reliable transportation anymore.

I have a bachelor's degree in CS but job opportunities are limited where I live. It would probably be unwise to attempt to live on my own because I have schizoaffective.

I live with my mum and step-dad, almost 28 years old. Graduated back in 2013 with a degree that is near useless to me now, worked a few jobs here and there, but have been unemployed for about 90% of the time between then and now.

I can't move out because I have no money, even though I greatly desire my own place. My parents rent their apartment and get assistance from the government to pay rent & bills (they're NEETs too), so they aren't as harsh with me as they probably should be when it comes to getting a job and getting my shit together.

No real idea what to do at this point. It doesn't help that I live in one of the most expensive cities on the planet and minimum wage is less than a one bedroom apartment in my area. I never wanted to be a NEET, but I couldn't handle working and now that I've been out of the labour force for so long, it's incredibly difficult to break into it (and even if I could, I'm not sure I can handle the only jobs I can get, such as retail, fast food, etc.)

I am an immigrant kid living with mommy and daddy in western yurop
daddy said he will work for another 5 years and as soon as he gets pension, he will pack his bags and head back home. My mother will probably go with him.
He will get about 1500$ in pension. For eastern yurop this is about 5x the median wage.
However, his savings is just about 80 grand and he will need this for future renovations of his house. My mother will not get much more than maybe 500$ per month.

I have no idea what I will be doing past that time. I cannot read the russky hieroglyphes and I don't want to be forced eventually into becoming a 12hours per day wagie for 300 dollars per month of wage. and the thought of living with mommy and daddy evokes a deep fear inside me. I have no idea what I should be doing.

I have lots of savings left from my last 2 jobs but after those are spent I have no idea what to do. Or for example if my father should become ill and his pension falls away, who will care for my mother then. her pension will be eaten up by medical bills already.
I cannot even take care of myself let alone her.
and I feel like total trash that I am incompetent at doing house chores and I cannot imagine my 75 year old mother to still be doing my laundry in the future.

Honestly, I thought of packing my bags, stashing a lot of cash with me and just going to a big travel for one last time. If I die at some faraway place, better for me. To some place warm. Then there to just become a vagabond. Or travelling to the next place. I mean you get tourist visa for most countries up to half a year. You could just hop from one country to another. If I like one place I could go ghost there as well.
Or even dying, I don't want to die in shitty yurop. At least I want to die on some nice place. Not freezing to death like the homeless often do.

>AITA for making my son homeless?
Backstory: Me [53/m] and my wife [49/f] made the tough decision to kick out our adult son [25/m]. This is not without reason, and we have given him multiple notices and enough time to sort things out and save money, find an apartment, devise a budget, and figure out what he wants to do. He went to a local college as soon as he finished high school, but dropped out after 2.5 years after switching his major three times: from graphic design, to accounting, to biology. After dropping out, he worked at a local deli department for about two years until he was fired. Our son has ADD, but is otherwise incredibly bright and friendly. At times he gets overloaded and has had many incidents of not properly filling out customer orders or being too slow. Me and my wife sympathized and encouraged him to look for something else. This was three years ago, and our son has not worked at all.

He has not put even the slightest bit of effort into finding a job or returning to school. He has become overweight and spends all his time in front of the computer or playing video games. It got to a point where I had to sit him down and explain that he needs to look for a job, because me and my wife are planning on downsizing to a smaller house and will be unable to support him. He never took our conversations seriously. My wife would talk to him several times a week about job applications, only for him to go "Oh, mom…" and ignore her. I've sat him down, and tried to reason with him. I was willing to give him a few years to save up money so he would have a safety net to fall back on, but still nothing.

He claims to suffer from depression, and while I can see that, I felt that it would be better for him to try and face the world head on. He's seen psychiatrists, has been on multiple medications, and will need his own insurance next year. I became so frustrated with him that I finally felt enough was enough. I woke him up, packed his bags, and drove him to a homeless shelter. I told him that he needs to find a job, and that me and his mom would not let him back into the house until he has one. I gave him all the essentials: razors for shaving, soap, deodorant, toothbrush kit, and etc. I kept his belongings in storage and would unpack them if he came home.

It has been over a month, and we hadn't heard from him or seen him. He has no friends that we know of, so we thought it was unlikely that he would be staying with anyone. I then receive a call from of our neighbors, who then told me they saw our son, with a scraggly beard and unkempt hair, walking around aimlessly near a shopping center, before hunching himself over beside a building. I cannot believe what I heard. I drove back up there to check if he was still there, but I couldn't find him. He has no phone or means for us to contact him. I am now feeling extremely worried that this was not a good decision. Am I the asshole?

I could understand their point of view if they were assholes and were tired of their son's shit. However they seemingly were fucking stupid enough to think that this "tough love" (in the form of suddenly dumping their son onto the street with apparently no plans to keep in contact with him or support him even on an emotional level) would actually help their clearly very isolated and depressed son somehow.

Keep in mind, this is only their side of the story. Who knows what really happened. I doubt that they were good parents up to this point, people don't just become depressed shut ins for no reason. I can't help but read this situation as somebody just trying to rationalize their actions so that they wont have to feel any responsibility for their part in the destruction of their own son.

Oh me too anon. I've literally throttled him before because he gave me too much shit from finding bottles in my room (drinking). He found them when I was on a bender, he did that one too many times. I've gotten so close to beating hiim over the head with a bat when he's not looking, washing dishes manically in the kitchen the way his OCD ass does, all day long. It's like he's asking for it.

I didn't look at the comments but the guy sounds like a retard who went from 0 to 100 in the application of pressure on his son to get a job. He pussyfooted around for years without offering actual help (at least that's what I get from the post) or taking a stand. Then he throws him on the street because he thinks it's "better for him to try and face the world head on" which is a pretty massive fucking leap to take just because psychiatrists and meds weren't helping him get a job. And he seems to expect that things will magically work out.

To top it all off this guy is posting on fucking reddit and asking people to resolve his quandary of "who was in the wrong here", rather than going out to look for his son, notifying police, or doing literally anything else to get in contact with him. He even claims at the top of his post that he's using a throwaway account because he thinks his son uses reddit, so he's possibly also destroying what little chance his son has of recognizing and contacting him. I don't think he could make it any clearer that he gives 0 actual fucks about his child, he just cares about validation from people around him.

This is all from just reading his perspective and without much backstory, who knows what their earlier parenting was like. I'm guessing it was the same pussyfooting and lack of support though, which snowballed into this.
Spend no time cultivating your kid and you're likely to get back a shit kid. Common sense. Your fucking turd offspring aren't going to just fall into the lap of success and normality because "oh he's so bright, look at how well he uses the computer!".

Now my dad has leukemia and because the dumb fucks moved to the middle of nowhere continuing treatment isn't going to happen and he will face an awful death. Was originally planning to kill myself after both parents passed on but I don't think I can wait probably going to pull the trigger after my dad dies. Feel kinda bad for my mom but they both ultimately did back stab me and I told them for ten goddamn years if we ever moved back to this shit hole I would kill myself. They chose to ignore that so fuck it im out.

>are unable to move out for some reason?
Yes
I love my parents very much, but at least 50% of why I'm still here is because we use the same bank account.
The account is in my name but one day my mom just took my card and said "yeah health insurance will jew us if we don't hide our inheritance (from my grandma) in here"
I don't have the freedom to leave, which I want, the feeling of being trapped here makes me want to commit suicide. I know for a fact that if I don't get out soon that my siblings (who both moved out) will leave me the task of helping them in their elder years strictly up to me.
This is horrible. This is worse than not being able to leave because you're poor. At least some normies will understand that!

I work part time and take community college courses, will be moving out in the fall to become a full time undergrad at age 26. I’m not excited about being surrounded by 20 year olds but it’s an easier life than trying to get a full time job with no degree and limited experience. Especially living in the San Francisco area where we have some of the highest cost of living in the world. My parents are very excited about this development after years of me cycling between working part time/low wage jobs and NEET living, so they will help me out financially. No idea what I will do after graduation though. My parents seem to want me to go to grad school and become a professor, still clinging to their concept of me as “smart” despite all evidence to the contrary. Oh well, maybe I will work up the courage to kill myself by then, or the world will be blown up by nukes or something.

I enjoyed reading many of the posts here. It is nice to see proper Wizards of age, but I also felt weird seeing too many <25, even <20 apprentices. I'm in no place to advice, and worst vice is to advise but still… Take care of yourselves young wizs, both physically and mentally and financially. Just because you can do something at your late teens/20s doesn't mean you can do it in future with impunity, there is also a possibility of long term consequences. So do what everyone tells you to do, brush your teeth, eat healthy, excersize etc. I know it is cliche, but they are cliche for a reason. Think long term. If you want to live as a NEET thats fine, but what will happen to you in next 5-10-15-20-30 years? Plan accordingly.

I'm nearing my mid 30s now. You really began to settle more or less, your life will be unchanged, provided you don't have a crisis, after your late 20s. My condition is okay. My parents are still in their 50s, they had me when they were young students, and they still work. They make around 50k-80k$ depending on the jobs they take (both retired and work as freelancers now). This is quite good given the fact I live in a shitty third world where minimum wage is 5000 dollars a year. We also own some properties, if all of them are rented out (except one I live in) it would net me a 1000 $ income per month. The average living cost of one person minus rent is around 500$ per month.

It is quite a comfy set up, with one problem. With thirld world comes the chaos. I always remmeber the words of an elderly Norwaygian couple who moved to Argentina. They hold me how in Norway everything was set up for you, from where you born to where you will be educated to when you will retire etc, life was predictable. They complimented on how chaotic and unpredictable Argentina was and their whole life was an adventure now.
Which might have been true, given they were retired on 1st world money on a thirld world country. But chaos also has it downsides. Really nothing is predictable, you are one disaster away from total financial ruin. A coup, a civil war, earthquake, insurance fucking you over. All of these are far more possible and likely in thirld world. A way to circumvent this is to move your money out, but my problem is that I don't have enough of it. If I sold everything it would net me around 250k$ which after tax/costs would be a very small amount. Most first world investment opportunities don't consider anything below 500k$ at start.

So there is my dilemma, I'm rich enough for thirld world but not rich enough to move that money to first world and live off as such. My fate is binded into the chaos I'm living in, and I'm one civil war away from ruin. I spend my days worrying about this and trying to come up with a solution but I can't. Maybe I should be grateful that I don't have to wagecuck and live off of anime and vidya all day.
My parents always supported me. I think they give up on me having a family and all that jazz but I never had the siutation that is OP's pic. They also chastise me about worrying too much and that I should enjoy life to the fullest.
I always tell to them it is easy for them to say that, given have good jobs/carreers and can find work anywhere, while I'm a fucking neet with no usefull skill at the age of 30.

>Are you like me and been sitting on that college diploma for a year already trying to dodge the "when are you going to get a job" questions?
No, I think a degree would be too financially risky for someone like me, if it was cheap or my parents paid I would probably be like this.

I’m not sure I will be in a desperate situation but this will definitely lower my quality of life when he is unemployed. I also live in a fairly small town so there isn’t a lot of work for people who shouldn’t be customer facing. I want to kill myself before I end up too desperate.
I have quite a bit of social anxiety and I think people see me as creepy or strange so I’m not really sure how I’m meant to make money.

I have a meeme one year diploma it is completly useless and the previous job was so stressfull that I quit & turned into a neet.

i'm living with my single mom and my brother. both of them are retarded. my mom is retarded and also a cripple.
i'm subsisting entirely off of their disability checks. it ain't pretty.

i've had three jobs in the past and held them for very short periods of time (i think the longest was a year at a call center, shortest was one month at a grocery store).
i quit my most recent job just last month and i'm barely surviving and the "when are you going to start looking for a new job?" is beginning.

i don't think simply eating less and not asking for any money will help me here because my mom wants me to get a job just based on the principle of the matter and less because she actually needs money from me, although she does need money as well…

i'm just biding my time and trying to be very nice to her. she's an easily pleased succubus and she's used to my flat affect. she even considers me something of a comedian which is fucking insane to me. i wear an angry scowl on my face basically all hours of the day.
but it can be so hard to be nice when you're an internet addicted freak. i mean i'm basically in something of physical pain when i'm not sitting in front of the computer if that makes sense. like i'm so addicted that even just going to get a bottle of water for 15 seconds makes me fucking furious and uncomfortable. i have to try VERY HARD to be nice to my mother considering that, and i fail sometimes, but she doesn't seem to fault me for it.
my mom has done basic research on the psychology of people abused as children and living with a single parent and understands the short temper symptom and so i think she blames herself for it whenever i act like a faggot.

oh, i meant to add to this but i got sidetracked by describing the mom situation.

so basically i'm thinking that because i have demonstrated that i'm incapable of holding down a job that it may be time that i file for disability as well. i'm seeing a therapist once a week now on welfare insurance.
it's fucking with my head because the therapist seems to not be taking me that seriously and seems to be unconcerned with how severe my situation and life story is.
i don't know if it's just training making her hide how shocked she is by me, or if she's genuinely unbothered by it, but it's freaking me out that she's treating me like some normalfag. i fear she may not think i'm applicable for disability.

i told her i went 4 entire years without talking to anybody except my mom, i told her about the child abuse, i told her about the hallucinations, i told her i have an imaginary friend, i told her i'm angry and have obsessive thoughts all day every day and anxiety so severe that i'm incapable of focusing and i have 1000 thoughts in my mind at the same time all the time.
and she concurred with all of this and seems to have noted it into my permanent record, and yet she continues to be unfazed and talk to me like as if there's hope that i can improve, and talks to me like as if i'm one step away from securing a job and becoming normal.

i haven't suggested disability to her yet and i don't think i should until i've "proven myself" further.


i'm also concerned about if it's even possible to have three people living together who are ALL THREE on disability. i have this bad feeling that there's some law against that or that they'll put us under scrutiny and sabotage our disability or something. i mean it is pretty severe.

I live and work on my parents farm, my living with them is probably in most a matter of time efficiency (although money and comfort is there as well), there's 6 houses on the estate, 4 have tenants and one is sitting empty. They seem rather satisfied with the situation though, one of the big reasons they even bothered to have a kid was probably to get someone who could keep running this operation when they got older, I was basically put in a tractor as soon as I was tall enough to reach the pedals, recall having to use a bucket as extra step to be able to climb into that thing, and fair enough, nowadays dad is too worn out to do any work besides administrative and mom has always worked elsewhere, I bring them a considerable income so it was probably a worthwhile investment.

My parents did that too. Everything I did or wanted to do was wrong or I wouldn't be able to do it because x (in between saying I could do anything I wanted and how bright I supposedly was) and they never taught me anything but the most basic skills. At the same time they somehow expected me to just be an independent and well-adjusted person. They kept it up into my 20s (while telling me I was so independent and a man and need to make my own decisions). The slightest disagreement with my father induced galactic butthurt. My only escape was staying in my room and trying not to make any noise because my mother was sitting on the other side of the thin wall where she could hear what I was doing.
Now it is kind of huge mystery to them why I have no confidence and no interest in doing anything but sit at the computer.

Most relateable. Not too long ago my dad suggested I should "engage myself in something" while in the past effectively shooting down and mocking anything I ever took interest in.

I've seen this sort of hypocrisy, selfishness and pettiness in most of my elders (there's a few exceptions thankfully, bless them).

I managed to enter college, a math degree, and my classes are probably starting mid-April, if the virus stops spreading here. I don't think that I'll finish this course though.

21 year old.

I am in my last year of a pointless degree in an entrepreneurial course. I had decided when I was 18 to take up my family business and went ahead with this course per my father's recommendation. I don't want to do it anymore. Within the 3 years I've been in college, my father has let the business go to hell. The sales are down hugely and he doesn't care anymore since he just wants to retire. He has money made from real estate and other investments that has secured him for life. I work part time in the business during my breaks from college. The workers there are nice but sometimes they get frustrated with me because of how useless and dumb I am. Oh well. There's no way I could possibly run the business successfully but I am going to have to try.

My real passion is greyhound racing. Odd, huh? My father has trained greyhounds as a hobby his whole life and I've been doing it with him since is as a small boy. I love it so much. I wish I could just do this for the rest of my life. But the industry is dying on its feet and probably won't exist in a decade or so. I really don't know what I'm going to do if that happens. The only joy in my life will be gone for ever.

My relationship with my father has always been good, but it's declining. He's starting to realise how much of a loser I really am. I am not smart, I have no friends. I'm a disappointment to him. He won't say it out loud, but I know how he feels. I guess I should be content that he is still kind to me for now at least.

I have a much older brother who is a NEET for two years now. He dropped out of college twice. He won't get a job or do anything. My mother is really fed up with him. I think he has autism or something. He would make his NEETdom so much simpler if he just accepted he was a total fucking loser but for some reason he still has an ego. And a bad temper. I guess that's what spoiling your children does. All of my siblings are like this lol. They are all dumb minimum wage workers with bad tempers and egos. Ironically, I am considered the good child of the family even though I don't feel like there's anything good about me.

The future doesn't look good for me. My relationship with my parents is deteriorating gradually since they are fed up with me still being childish. I'm just trying to live quietly and not cause them too much trouble. I don't ask for money and I try not to ask them for any favours at all. At least I'm lucky that my father is wealthy and financially secure.

I bought Stein's Gate for my PS Vita a few weeks ago before all these coronavirus shit happened. I played it in my college accommodation while classes were cancelled. It was the happiest I'd been in years. Just lying down in my bed, drinking Dr Pepper, eating snacks and playing my game in dark quiet room. If only life could always be that simple.

If you've found something you genuinely like, go for it. I know I'll be called a normalfag for saying this though.

I mean if it's viable to live off of dog breeding, then it's better than working in an office or neeting until you're homeless, but I imagine there are a lot of start-up costs associated with that.

Maybe try horse racing stuff instead since it seems to be dying slowly.

Careful with that advice. I'm 21 and I was completely miserable in college. Don't get me wrong, I loved the content I was studying (Applied Mathematics) so much so that I would constantly be reading textbooks even in my free time. But, it got to the point to where I wasn't learning anything from the university and I was paying thousands of dollars for it (even after scholarships, out of state tuition). I had to show up to class with attendance being mandatory / graded, and I felt all of the assignments and exams were laughably easy. I wasn't being challenged at all.

Anyway, my point is not to brag or anything along those lines. I don't claim to be smart. In fact, anybody can learn anything if they put in the time because all the smart PhD-having lads have already written the books for you. My point is that I would highly recommend NOT going to university unless you want to get into research. If it's a job or something that requires a Bachelor's, you can self-study and build a good portfolio – most jobs require a Bachelor's OR equivalent experience, which can be demonstrated by solid projects in a portfolio. If you just want a job with decent pay, just go to a trade school. To go one measure further, go to a trade school related to programming so that you don't have to be milked by universities and so that you have a good possibility of getting a good paying job that allows you to work from home.

The choice is still yours to make, obviously, but I felt the need to share my two cents.

 No.166540

>>166539
It's the speed of skill acquisition that matters. If you devoted 24 hours a day to learning something you might learn with a lot of effort, but if you're not able to compete with the other people in the field, it doesn't matter. That being said, you are mostly right that most learning in university doesn't take place in the classroom. However, HR requirements in economically lean times will stress formal credentials unless a technical person controls all the hiring.

At this point, people with portfolios are a dime a dozen, so you'd have to be good at something most people can't do.

>At this point, people with portfolios are a dime a dozen, so you'd have to be good at something most people can't do.

The whole point is to be good at something most people can't do. The HR requiring degrees thing one can get past by claiming "Equivalent knowledge to B.Sc in (x)", as long as you honestly feel you've studied an equivalent amount. Personally, I would say diving straight in to Junior and Senior classes on MIT OCW would achieve this (most courses begin with a refresher on required knowledge for that course, no need for a full length course prerequisite unless you begin struggling). Another way would to be listing the relevant courses to the job posting instead of putting an education section.

I'm not joking either, I left university empty-handed and landed a job as a Data Engineer, a position which prefers a Master's in Computer Science or Statistics, by having built a competitive portfolio.

 No.166546

You are not painting the whole picture, what happened after graduating? Or I guess you are about to graduate in June?
If you were bored during your Bachelor why not go on and do your master, maybe even a PhD? You could expand into Computer Science, Engineering or Descriptive Geometry, whatever you like really. If you are good and promising I am sure America has plenty of funds that would accept a Scholarship, this is a much more constrictive thing to make a portfolio for than some fuckshit rip off company that doesnt give a fuck about you.

Companies only care about their returns and its a very mundane and boring occupation, whatever they pay you its not worth your actual input and they will always try to squeez every hour possible out of you. Managment is disconnected and incompetent because they arent actually engineers, biologists, craftsmen etc. but just greedy economy students. Why work for these suit wearing fucks?
Trades are even worse off, you are working your ass off for change and no matter how much money you make the company they wont give you more. With 40 you will have your first physical problems and it generally just sucks. Sure you could start your own company but how do you think people do that? They borrow money, not much different from a student loan. And even if you dont fail you will still work your ass off.
This is all worsened by the fact that most of your income goes to your horrible government which is either pushing right wing authoritarianism or left wing lunacy on you.

My point is that working by itself is not a virtue and especially since we wont have families, whats the point? You wont retire anytime soon and inflation steadily fucks your savings anyway. You really are just a cuck and I would rather be an academic doing freelance work or working on some big project with my peers which can turn you into a millionaire overnight. Fuck working for some company and rotting in your office, its not a place for wizards.
About student loans; what do you think how these wagies buy their homes or start companies? They all borrow money, you wont get around it. I feel that there is this misconception that debts at a bank will cripple you but thats not really true. Nobody will knock on your door and demand the money, banks dont lose the money the lend they keep it as assets and they generally dont care about collecting because they already collect interests. Seriously, every nation on earth and most companies are in debt who gives a fuck?

Now I wont say what I say is the absolute truth, nobody can give that whether through experience or information, I am just saying working as an intellectual will make people here more content than some mundane trade. But what I do want to say; whatever you do, do it properly and complete it. Dont slack off and dont abort your studies/work, dont end some deadend wagecuck.
But if you have the choice, I feel that Uni is the better option.

I didn't actually take out student loans, I worked full-time and studied full-time and made my payments monthly. I also only work for a company for as long as I still have money to invest into my land, and it's a solar company of about forty or fifty employees so I feel significant enough where I'm at.

My personal goal is to essentially become a farmer with a computer lab, and I've already got some land with my first shipping container and have the insulation installed into it. I plan to have two shipping containers connected for a living space, one for growing food, and one for a computer lab with a small server. I have budgeted $12,000 for each shipping container, and have spent $7,000 on the land. This has come out to a value under the average mortgage and I talked with my bank to take one out under modular housing (I agree with your view on debt/loans, it's an investment). Within a couple years I should have my own solar powered off-grid joint and be completely independent from society apart from clothing, and I figure if I need money I can do online programming work. Sure I work for a business, but it wouldn't be for any significant amount of time relative to my whole life.

Anyway, I do not mean to tangent onto what I'm doing with my money; rather, if you feel working on a project with peers or doing academic freelancing is the appropriate choice, then I truly believe university is definitely not the choice to go unless there is already a research group you have your attention put on AND what you're doing requires expensive lab equipment. Otherwise, just become an independent researcher. Everything you need can be gathered from arXiv, nature, etc., and paywalled articles can be accessed from scihub.

Of course, university is the right choice for some people but these days it seems the average person doesn't know what they want to do, they simply decide to go to university without any game plan with hope of getting a good paying job coming out. Go into university only if you know exactly what you're doing from there lest you get milked for every dollar you own all for information you could have simply gathered yourself either online or from a library. Again, this is just my opinion but honestly dropping out from university was the greatest decision I've ever made.

Listen to this wizzie. Don't go to college unless you know exactly what you want to do for a career. Otherwise college is just for networking and socializing. On occasion you may get direct experience with some equipment, but its way cheaper to just read on your own than have someone hand-hold you through.

I'm 30 and am practically forced to live with my parents because they're too retarded to take care of themselves. I live somewhere I've hated my entire life. Hard to explain the hatred burning inside of me over this particular geographic location but it has been sucking my soul for twenty years.
After dropping out of highschool I spent my twenties moving all over the place, trying to escape and find a good place to call home. I'd move somewhere new and start from zero, wageslaving at labour/trade jobs. When it didn't work out I'd somehow still end up back here. Only bright side has been that 1/3 of my twenties was spent NEETing off my savings.
In any case, my dad is an alcoholic and my mom a six year NEET - they're both too lazy to do anything so I do most of cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, fixing things and also helping with the bills. The old man can't afford the mortgage on this giant house but is too lazy to sell/downsize and refuses to rent to roommates. My parents are split up but somehow mom still lives here for free. At one point I was living on my own and still giving my father $500 every month.
Anyway, in two years' time they're selling everything to move back to the old country and retire and when that happens I'll be completely alone and finally free. I'm too tired to try and "make it work" anymore so I will sell everything I own and take up the traveling bum life for a while. Maybe max out my 41k worth of credit. Once all the money runs out I'm cashing in my days and checking out of this shithole world.

My city is especially vulnerable to the Chinese virus and my lease was up right when our city had to shutdown. I don't know how fucked the economy is going to be a few months down the line. It's a tourist city so even when we do reopen up social distancing and a thriving economy just aren't compatible. I'm also an idiot so maybe I'm just talking out my ass, but with those reasons in mind I decided to move back in with my parents. I've been living with them for about a month now and it's pretty awful. To make a long story short, all the reasons that drove me to leave still exist.

I had enough money to live comfortably for a few months in the event I did get laid off, but I just didn't want to be sitting there burning through my savings. However I don't know if my mental can take it. I'm looking at other options. Kinda wondering if I can maybe live cheap in like eastern Europe or Asia or something. Anyone have experience with this? It seems daunting because I've never even lived outside my own city, but even with my measly $25k saved I think this can last me a good while in many other countries.

Hmm, how bad is it really though? Is that media fearmongering or is it worse than the West? Are NEETBUX easy to obtain in Japan? Any Asian wizards here that can shed light on how East Asians perceive NEETDOM? Like I said with the whole concept of "honor" and holding "face" that must mean a lot of parents harbor shame right?

 No.168763

>>168745
You're right about the fact that it's considered very shameful, but that's part of what causes the issue.
The shame, especially on the parents' end, leads to a lot of them never seeking help even when they obviously need it since they're too ashamed to admit to anyone outside of the house that their child is a mentally ill fuckup. That attitude makes it very hard for anybody to get better once things have become really bad, and is why so few hikikomori ever make real returns to society.

I think the biggest reason this kind of thing happens so often is that Japanese culture absolutely cannot tolerate any kind of conflict. The lengths to which Japanese people will go to avoid uncomfortable situations makes it really easy for these sorts of problems to fester, because when a kid starts to withdraw, or even before that when he's just having problems at school or his mental state is deteriorating, rather than cutting it off early before it gets really bad the parents simply try to pretend it's not there. And then when he locks himself in his room for 3 years, rather than start a fight with him the socially correct behaviour is just to leave him his food and maintain the peace.

Also related to the above, in east Asian cultures dependence on family is a positive thing rather than a negative like it is in the independence-focused west. The societal attitude is that your parents are obligated to take care of you for as long as you need it, and then you are obligated to reciprocate when they're old farts (I think "amae" in Japanese is basically a word for this concept). It doesn't matter if your son is turtling in his room, you HAVE TO keep taking care of him because you're his parents.
I don't actually know this part for a fact but I'm pretty sure the bux situation in Japan is extremely crappy, but it doesn't matter because they have their parents to support them.
