So I've been thinking...

I feel as though some people are put in a stuck situation, and that only allows them to find a way and a place that appreciates what you appreciate. As a fellow lover of art, Japan and music, I find anime to be MY leeway into this parallel universe that takes me beyond comprehension. I think the point I'm trying to make is does anybody find anime to be a vital support for yourself? I want to hear other people's take on how anime became aware to them, and how anime trances them. Because when I watch anime I tend to relate way more than I should, I was watching Watamote(anime about girl with social anxiety), and it's crazy how it made me react. I felt as though these animes summon a will to live. Hi I'm Zen, here stuck on this Earth for the sake of the people who care about me more than I do, curious about other peoples lives who possibly think that no one cares about. I am the one who was impaired by these real world tragedies, with weakness in obvious places and strength in places no one would've guessed.

Anime and gaming is a great escape, albeit a temporary one. Like all good fiction can be, it offers us to put on hold the mundane and can inspire creativity.

Back on topic, if you can live that way and have the means to, and can do so not in a way that is harmful to another, I see no condescending reason to judge. I salute you.

Give it 3 years tops before you change your tune.

There is no NEET lifestyle, just laziness.

You relate way more than you should because you yourself accept this so called lifestyle as a lifestyle, when it's just getting sucked into a vicious circle.

Give it time, time heals everything.... even your excuses.

Anime isn't this godsend, it's just one of many achievements of entertainment. Overtime the format will ultimately change with the current generation and modern focus.

So if you want to keep telling yourself that you accept this "Lifestyle", you go right ahead.

I am currently NEET not because I want to but because of two things, the stupid city I live in requires that you either have a drivers licence or 5 years of experience to do anything, and fear, I am scared that I am going to get a crappy job that will bore me too death...

Having hobbies that put you at ease is good. Becoming too dependent on hobbies that put you at ease, and avoiding some of the more challenging aspects of life, is not good. If you never walk outside your comfort zone, nothing will change even if you want things to change.

Everyone has their escape. Some people follow religions, some people drink alcohol, others use drugs. Some people lose themselves being obsessive over another human. Humans are highly cognitive beings, thus we look for meaning in everything. It's why we find patterns even when things are sometimes random. As Carl Jung said, As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being."

Like most things that people tend to try and place meaning towards, a lot of it will just be your own subjective truth vs some objective reality. Some of it will be beneficial for you and others will be a hindrance. Think less and just enjoy life.
