I am not a NEET or Hikikomori, I do like to hide from the world around me. I live alone, and I try and plan out my week so that I do not have to leave my apartment often. However, I do have a job, and I am willing to leave to handle errands. If I had a house with a decent home gym in it I would likely be more of a Hikikomori. I just fine dealing with human relationships to be more hassle than enjoyment.

Well, I'm really a NEET right now, but not a hikikomori, although I was one... Now I have some people that I consider friends, and I'm not so afraid of relate to other persons, guess I'm just socially awkward right now.

"La soledad es pacífica, pero en ella no hay nadie con quien puedas compartir la felicidad"
-Aikawa Ayumu.

Something like:

"Being alone gives you peace, but you don't have anyone to share happiness with"

I was a NEET for a number of years.

My girlfriend who I was going to propose to dumped me, my friend committed grisly double suicide with his girlfriend, and my mom got a cancer I didn't think she's end up surviving (she did survive though). All in like 2008. I was doing fairly well, working at a department store at the time. But I started to lose my mind a bit with all the stuff piling up on me so quickly, so I quit. Kind of retreated into video games and TV. Then a LOT of anime. A whole, whole lot of anime.

Anyways. I started working again in 2013. So I guess I was a NEET for a good 4-5 years. Got a full time job in shipping and video production in 2013 but that only lasted half a year. I've been working since then with a friend of mine at our own production company. But it's slow growing so I am still at least partially a NEET right now since I'm very much underemployed and at almost 30 am living with my parents because I can't afford rent elsewhere.

Sound pretty NEET-y to me >_< I personally never really thought that that's what i was/am basically. Granted if someone invites me to do something i may go but only after willing myself to go (So that i don't get worse" but crowds and the idea that people can see and judge me really really makes me uncomfortable.
The main reason i picked your post is because you stated that your job kinda made you less of a hikikori I don't have a job because i honest to god don't think i'd be able to work at a register and talk to people on a daily basis but i think it would help a lot. But at my previous jobs i've always worked on a team and was always smiling and waving to people but EVERY chance i got to be by myself i took it. This included eating my lunches by the planes with my earplugs in instead of in the break room with my fellow employees.....

Trying to not be a NEET, but no one wants to hire me. I'm pretty much to the point where I just want to say I'm white on all of my Job applications so i can get a call back

I feel like a soon to be NEET, if I don't graduate high school by 2016, I'm gettin' my GED and probably taking a few NEET months off before employment and/or college. The question is, will I actually be able to hurry my laggy ass up schoolwork wise ,being behind, and graduate by 2016? only time will tell. Siiiigh.

I have to say I was a NEET for like 2 years of my life because of extreme social anxiety. There were periods of time where I wouldn't leave the house for days. Thankfully I have gotten a little better and although I still have social anxiety, I'm working part time and studying now.


For those who don't know what NEET and hikikomori mean:

NEET: A NEET or neet is a young person who is "Not in Education, Employment, or Training".

Hikikomori: The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare defines hikikomori as people who refuse to leave their house and, thus, isolate themselves from society in their homes for a period exceeding six months.
neet and hikki here.i too suffer from depression,anxiety,agoraphobia,OCD and god knows what else.....i havent left my house in years! to the point that i no longer recognize my own city.the only time that i can go out is when i have to go to the docs.i dont have friends or anything of the kind and yeah....it sucks but medication can only go so far when you illnesses get severe

i did got better for awhile to get my high school diploma though

neither.

and people who are those things don't choose to be like that. they have some sort of pressure that cause them to mentally break down and withdraw from society.

I may shut myself out from society, but the difference between me and hikki's is that I choose to seclude myself.

Is not being able to go outside and/or socialize due to a crap-ton of school work considered being a hikikomori?

I guess the statement above eliminates the possibility of me being a NEET.

Hey dude I have been in a similar situation and I know it's very rough, but don't give up!! You can definitely get better but only if you want to of course. Have you tried seeing a psychologist?

You are definitely not a hikikomori, you are a busy student. I assume you also have to go to uni for classes right? You are only a hikikomori if you never physically leave your house for anything.

I know how hard it is to find a job but don't give up, after you submitt your application it's good to personally visit the location where you applied and speak with the manager. It shows you are interested in the job and will improve your odds of getting hired.

Wow sounds like you had a rough time!! You know it's funny but during my NEET years I watched so much anime, and in a way I guess it helped me get through the tough times and some anime even inspired me to not let myself be beat by social anxiety and tackle life's adversities head on.
