So basically I'm having problems trying to make something of my future. I wouldn't say I'm the most productive guy in the world. I'm 22 and work full time monday - Friday for the past 3 years in a dead end job to pay the rent, and if I'm not working I'm gaming or watching some anime or film. I really do want to push for a form of productive job (something along the lines of twitch livestreamer or anime artist, basically some form of media production) but what ever I try I seem to just give up when I get stuck, try something else or go back to my normal routine that I've had for the past 3 years. I have so many doors in front of me I'm just finding it very hard to pick something that could change my life and stick with it for the next couple of years.

I don't know why I can't snap out of the demotivational/depressive spell but it's hard for me to try and tackle something like this on my own as I don't really have any friends and I can't really confront my family about this topic. Am I rushing things? or am I right in thinking I need to pin down a path for myself?

I've tried talking to a few people at work, but I get the comfort talk and not really any true guidance, which led me here. I been with this community for awhile and though I don't speak in the forums I can see your a decent bunch of people that could possibly shed some light on this situation, and if you can I really would appreciate it!

Sorry for a depressing topic but hopefully I can tackle this hurdle with your help.

Many thanks

i believe you're rushing things.

think about people who don't even have a job for like 1-2 years? How would they feel?


You should feel fortunate that you have a fulltime job, just take things slowly, go study part time or something and try to find a job that is meaningful for you. Take things one at a time.
