why is it so impossible to be happy robots? why does everything about life have to be so shitty? work and school both suck, my old hobbies and interests dont entertain me anymore. sleep is the only thing i look forward to. is it time to suicide?
The way I look at it, it doesn't matter. If there is no afterlife, then everything is pointless. There's no way to reflect upon your life. Blah, blah, blah life is what you make it, but honestly what impact are you going to have on the world let alone the universe. You would have to be Bill Gates or Galileo and even then is thr human race going to last. Not that it matters you'll be dead by then. If you aren't happy it isn't worth it. If there is one, that life will surely be better than this one. Hopefully there is a Heaven setting.
life is only shitty if you believe it is shitty
right now my life feels empty because I believe its empty, and that's exacerbated by the environment I am in (NEET pretty much)
if you try to think more of life than you do now and maybe try some different things you may find that life isn't so bad after all
Life is pain, OP. Anyone who says differently is selling something.
The only reason life sucks is because of other people.
A large proportion of the human race are narcissistic, selfish and completely lack empathy for other human beings. They ruin life for everyone else.

not yet wait till your life truly falls apart
I just think it's funny how you spend your time blaming others but not thinking about things in a grander scheme.
People act selfishly and egotistic... why?
What reason is there for this to happen? Why can't every man be a brother to his fellow man, why can't every woman and child be safe?
I'll tell you: It's nature.
It's quite honestly in every persons' nature to think of themself before another person. Some people think so much more of themselves that it grants them bonuses in their life, because it's a desired trait. Women find men who are narcissistic more attractive.
Men who care more about establishing their business than their friends does better. It's simple.
Now, my advice to you is... why care? Why let other people annoy you? Why give a single fuck who is who and who does what? Worry about yourself more than them, that's what they do anyway.
Having the mentality that you're somehow better for ignoring this fact about any human being only leaves you behind. All those "nice guys?" They're putting on a facade, they lack the evolutionary drive to keep themselves going. They lack notions of dominance and masculinity to give them the rewards society bestows upon them for having those traits.
Just a tip ;)
that's your fault then. you can't just be like "I want to play an instrument" and then give up. It takes focus and dedication.
And another thing, you're not telling me "it won't work," you're telling yourself that.
i dont have the passion needed to actually focus and dedicate myself to an instrument or anything else for that matter. a while ago i got pretty decent at an online game, got to a pretty high level, but was never really happy with it because i was always angry when i lost and shit, so i quit playing.
now all i do is work and go to school and hate my life. how am i supposed to be happy when i have to do shit like that? i have limited time now, i cant even dedicate myself to something if i tried.
Sell isn't the right word, I'd choose "offer." And what I offer is advice.
Everyone who comes to /r9k/ is pathetic by both mine, and many others' standards. What's abhorrent is the fact that so many people who come on here can fix themselves so easily, but they're so entrenched in the throws of learned helplessness that they're adverse to even the thought of actually bettering themselves.
Instead they sit and blame anything and everything for why THEIR life is shit when in fact it's THEIR fault. Like the anon I replied too.
He thinks that the world is shit because a lot of people are just shitty people. What he doesn't realize is that he, like anyone else, is shitty in their own little unique way. Instead of realizing this he continues on with his game of looking at everything around him but himself for the source of his woes, and in doing so he gets nowhere, like many of the other posters on this board.
>I have no gf because there's men who're more attractive men than me
>Everyone who is considered "normal" is flawed by my standards because they do better socially
>All women are soulless whores
That last one is pretty true, but my point stands. If you realize things about people they're easier to handle.
And again, every person on earth is looking out for him/herself, and as I said, if you think you're morally superior because you like to be empathetic and conscientious, you'll be left to rot like many others who feel the same way.
I don't know man. Forcing yourself to do something fulfilling is better than sitting and bitching about it. I doubt your schedule is so tight that you can't find a few hours a day to solely practice an instrument, or make some art, or watch some cool movies or listen to music or any of that kind of shit.
Happiness stems from fulfilling yourself. You are not happy now because you aren't fulfilled, you're sitting on a half-baked degree in school and a dead end job. Video games won't fulfill you, porn won't, none of that shit will. Fulfillment is projecting yourself into something you love. That's the best I can tell you.
My job is working at a studio producing music for both myself and other people. I went through school to learn my trade and practiced and got good at it, and it allows me to project myself through my work, and that fulfills me. What fulfills you is whatever you desire it to be.
>Fulfillment is projecting yourself into something you love
but there's nothing that i love and i dont have the motivation or money to just try a bunch of shit and hope i find something interesting.
Whilst I understand and appreciate what you are saying, life is far more complex and I don't think people can fix themselves easily.
The environment can shape the mind of someone.
The best example of this is an obese person trapped in their home. Their mind goes stale in such an environment, so they continue to eat and go fat. Nothing will change them unless it is some kind of new external stimuli.
Plenty of Anons have read comments like yours before, which is why it won't work. They are still in their bedroom, devoid of anything new in their lives, their minds wasted away. Reading a "do this and do that" comment won't change a thing for them, it's not a powerful enough stimuli.
Additionally, your teenage years have a massive impact on the brain. If for whatever reason you become a social outcast during this time, your brain might develop differently to those who have friends etc. And the difference between having or not having friends as a teenager could be as simple as the difference between two schools, or the inclusion of a terribly bully at one school but not the other. So many variables.
I guess my point is, you have to entertain the possibility that people, in their given environment, with their given minds, are incapable of bettering themselves. It's nature.
>work and school
You college cucks know nothing of the real world or being burnt out. All you have to do is drum information into your brain that you can forget in six months. Most of you have no intention of utilizing your degree and are just postponing neetdom. You probably should off yourself. If you can't handle high school 1.5 then reality is not for you either.
