Hi guys, I've posted a couple of my videos on hikikomoridom here before so hopefully you won't mind another one. I don't get many viewers so having some feedback from my fellow NEETs would be great.
Anyway the topic that's been on my mind is how to recover from being a NEET/hikikomori after years of living like this. This whole system seems so strongly geared against us with you needing references for even basic volunteering roles… It seems like if you don't already have friends/contacts/experience you're fucked.
Here's my video by the way:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7STsKv63Ls
good luck with your interview
I once read somewhere, "once you've been a shut-in (or hiki) for a year or more, you will never fully recover…it will change you forever". While this sounds a bit extreme, I feel I have to agree with this. I lead a (more or less) "normal" life for roughly 3 years now, but I still have various issues because of that part of my past. It's not easy to get rid of all the old baggage.
What kind of baggage, for you personally?
Honestly, I just plaigurized it off some reddit thread. I'm sowwy, plz no kill.
Yeah, I know…
Seriously though, if your curious about the effects of being a hikikomori on your sanity, I suggest researching the effects of solitary confinement. It's not a perfect approximation, since most hikki's get electronic stimuli, but it should probably be close enough.
Can't you just make your threads without having to blatantly advertise your videos like this? It's starting to get on my nerves.
