anyone else? it's like i just am not allowed to have fun
hobby in question was "roleplay" by the way. though i say i've given up, i know that i'll probably be back in like, a week (or spend this week trying and failing to enjoy myself before i finally go 'fuck it' like i did for art).

No one is good at anything at the start. Just keep at it. Helps to do it together with a friend/relative.

Is that how you get a hobby?
I hear it so often; Get a hobby anon, it will help you relax, it will give you some joy, maybe even fulfill you.
Still I have no idea how that should work.
Like just pick something random and try it out? Then regarding if I liked it or not I continue doing it?

>Like just pick something random and try it out?
Rather than picking stuff to do randomly, it's best to gauge whether you will enjoy doing something or not, then choosing those you find enjoyable or entertaining. For example, I'd love to spend more time drawing since I consider it's a nice hobby, but for me it is extremely frustrating because it takes a good amount of time to get good, which I currently don't have. Maybe if I had a tablet I'd find it easier though, but using mouse is very tiring and I don't like traditional art as you can't delete stuff as neatlty as in digital. Hence, it's not a hobby I enjoy, so I don't do it.

On the other hand, I'm starting to dabble in C++ and emulation, and I find it's more rewarding as you can see progress more easily than, for example, drawing.

>Then regarding if I liked it or not I continue doing it?

Ideally, you should be able to judge whether you want to do something, or if you will like something, before you try it. However, misjudging is very common; look at all those people who tried to do yume nikki fangames and gave up midways when they realized it wasn't as "easy" or "entertaining" as they originally thought.

So, to answer your question: Yes, you can stop and ask yourself if you like what you're doing or not. Hobbies are supposed to be enjoyable, even when they aren't easy. Some like them for the challenge (achieving something, feeling accomplished), while others simply enjoy the process (think of those otaku who garage figures simply because they enjoy doing it, regardless of the quality of the final product). Feeling frustrated because you don't feel you're skilled enough shouldn't be a deterrent for trying a hobby if ultimately doing it makes you happy, but you definitely shouldn't push on doing something that makes you unhappy.

Thank you for that response anon.
Guess I simply have to beat my depression first because right now I don't want to do anything at all since right now I enjoy nothing.
