Whether or not I am one by choice or not is debatable I guess. Depression, anxiety, and a complete lack of work ethic are the main reasons I am a NEET. My anxiety means I'd probably end up freaking out and missing days, ultimately getting me fired. Meanwhile my depression capitalizes on that by telling me that there's no point because of my anxiety, and probably wouldn't even get hired if I tried.

Of course that then leads on to me requiring benefits, which then makes me feel like a parasite because I feel like my reasons for not working aren't good enough. That then leads on to self hatred and feeling like I deserve to die because society doesn't need someone who just takes and gives nothing in return. Of course suicide isn't much of an option though because I live in England so literally all of the good methods are near impossible for me to get a hold of and there are people around to stop me.


Gotta love it when your train of thought just runs off the tracks and goes wild...

I'm 5% below being considered fully disabled and work for about 6 months a year at a job I've had for almost a quarter century.I am heavily restricted in the work place but my employer doesn't seem to be concerned.


That's really awesome of your employer.


Actually my employer treats it's hourly employees with total contempt,but it's amazing what can be achieved with an attorney and a working knowledge of US Federal Law.

Lots of NEET's choose to be NEET's, not necessarily because they're disabled. I think I'd tear my eyes out if I just sat at home doing hobbies or nothing all day. It sounds fun and would be but eventually you're gonna want to live and do a "normal" life.




I always thought people can only be NEET by choice.

Maybe I can look up the definition...

Some corporations treat just about ALL of its employees below senior management grade with total contempt.

...and they have an army of lawyers to make sure whatever they do "comply with the law" even if it's morally reprehensible.

Well then I am a NEET, see you later NEET's!



Not in Education, Employment, or Training.

Basically you aren't a student, don't have a job, and aren't in training for a job.


What if I'm training to become a NEET?

I am a reluctant domestic partner because I couldn't find work after college. I did volunteer work for a while, but now most of the volunteer work available requires a car or some skill that I don't have like being fluent in another language or being able to play an instrument. A lot of young people are unemployed or barely make enough to make ends meet in my area, so it's hard to even get part time work. I'm lucky that my husband has a job to keep us, but I never wanted to be a housewife (thus I am not very good at it).


Just out of sheer curiosity, are you a Fine Arts Major? I find that about 90% of Science majors get jobs. I do find that a lot of Fine Arts majors don't get jobs, at least in a fast manor. Leads to a rather blunt, but in my experience, true joke. As a side note, I knew someone with a Masters in Music, another Masters in writing, another in Psychology (the Fine Arts version, the Sciences focuses on the biological reasons and ends up as a "doctor" of sorts (aka can prescribe medications)). Two of them entered University again for Engineering (one Petroleum, my old major, and the other Chemical). The other is in Geology, my current major.

Joke in spoiler as some Fine Arts may take offence, aka easily offended, don't read (as a tit for a tat I will throw one in for the sciences too):



This is actually pretty true because most jobs will always take experience over a degree, whether that's personal or professional. The thing about fine arts, and why it's so hard to find a job with that degree, is because art is something that you can do without a degree. You don't need a degree to write articles, books, scripts, or even music and you don't need a degree to create art, even if it's commercial. What's crazy is that a lot of the people who get those degrees get them and wonder why they're not getting a job, but it's 2015 and even the most important of degrees aren't guaranteed to net you a job nowadays. It's about experience, who you know, and how much they like you. A degree always comes last.

I will sell you one. It has only been used once, never opened either.

I'm not one anymore but I was once a hikikomori and a NEET for 4 years due to depression, anxiety and other reasons. It had its bright moments like meet some new friends, reading, and find out more about myself but that's all I can say about it. This year I am heading back to school so hopefully I can do better with things.

Anyone else a NEET, hopefully things get good with them and they can find a job or go back to school.
