Let me ask this.

How many of you on this site live like this? Now I'm not here to show off or call you out on it, but doesn't it get tiring? I used to waste my days playing video games and complaining that my life was boring, but that was because I never did **** . When that habit hit the peak, reality hit me like a ******* cannon and I got my **** together before I continued living under a rock. Right now I'm close to becoming a sponsored athlete, have a job that I love, and I focus more on what I love doing rather than complaining about it because I stepped my game up. Two and a half years ago I was too shy to talk to people, was morbidly underweight, and had bad habits. Now I've turned that around because I got tired of it. I'm still shy at times, but hell I like going out and have a good time in my own ways, jumping on rooftops and making videos and camping. Now I think about my past and say to myself "Wow, if there's anyone out there like that, I hope I can give them advice so they can stop suffering." I understand that for most people on this site have some good reasons why they are the way they are in let's say some medical issue or something. But I just wanted to say that if you have something you love to do, don't be afraid to succeed at it, because people will respect you when you show them your potential.

pic not related, maybe inspiring. idk, it´s me with magic flying pants.. but never give up and follow your dreams yo. go out and do **** .

I personally have what some could consider crippling anxiety.
I actually dropped out of my high school a week ago to switch to online classes because I couldn't leave for school in the morning without having an anxiety attack.
Even today I almost had an anxiety attack over going to singing lessons, which are once a week for a half an hour.
I don't really have friends outside of my online ones, and even those aren't really enough.
I've finally just pulled through a rather severe bout of depression that lasted a year (and was around to a lesser extent for years.)

I sit at home because I struggle with anxiety and depression, but I play video games and stuff because it's what I love to do and with every game, book, or ***************** , I learn something about myself, or life in general.
No, I'm not really that happy because there's parts about my real life that I don't like, but I'd be dead without video games.

It's great that you're happy now; it really is.
It just can't always be that way for other people, yknow?

Pic is mostly irrelevant but is also a super important life rule o k.

I live like this apart from the Anime. I play games, I pis fart around on Funnyjunk and the internet in general and lead an unexciting life. It does get tiring, but until I get into university, its all I can do.

If you look back at that old life you had and considered that time wasted/suffering then that's exactly what it is. I've been in this daily routine of watching an and gaming for about two years now and I don't regret one damn second of it. I've learned many things, met some awesome people that I couldn't live without and have had fun with it. Everyone needs to experience this at least once in there lifetime. I'm in the process of getting a job and i'm starting the point in my life where I start to change. Before my heart issues and when I was still in school I was really into martial arts, and good at it too, so i'm going to pick up martial arts again after I get a job.

Bettering yourself is never a bad thing, and neither is being hard on yourself, but there is nothing wrong with living in the now every once and a while, if you're always looking towards the future then you can never enjoy the now and if you always enjoy the now then you will never have a future.

to tell you the truth i did used to live like this a few years ago, then i got a job working as in insurance broker and i put all my time into that, now when my weekend comes around it makes playing video games with my mates so much more fun because i know i need to make the best out of the few hours i get to spend being lazy.

Honestly I love living like this. Weekends are ******* awesome, stay up late, wake up late, play video games, which is my favorite hobby, hang with friends 1-2 times/week, smoke weed to chill out and I wouldn't change any of it.
User avatar #78 to #59 - mlpokeyuan (09/18/2013) [-]
That's pretty much me minus the weed.

All I'm good at is shooting I'm pretty balanced with almost everything else. What the hell do I do with these skills? I've been trying to figure **** out but honestly it's hard to do considering the thing I'm good at is the most controversial thing in the U.S. since gay marriage.

I play video games all day. I'm still a bit shy to ask a girl out because most of them don't like what I spend my free time on.
User avatar #94 to #49 - HorriblyCrazy (09/18/2013) [-]
Find a girl who likes what you spend your free time on.

They exist. I promise.
User avatar #99 to #94 - yoshiware (09/19/2013) [-]
Of course they do. They're like shiny pokemon.

Then don't tell them ***** .
User avatar #53 to #52 - yoshiware (09/18/2013) [-]
They will find out eventually.
User avatar #55 to #53 - sirbutterballs (09/18/2013) [-]
Then act casually about it. Like it's not a big deal or anything you simply enjoy playing games.

I keep a good balance of my vidya life and my real life.

I'm on the cross-country team and swim teams, learning photography, and managed to snag an awesome gf.

At the same time I have 60+ games on steam with probably a combined 1000+ hours worth of gaming time over a course of 4ish years
User avatar #66 to #41 - hawaiianhappysauce (09/18/2013) [-]
60+ games. Pffft that's nothing. I have well over 200 games from emulators, steam, and consoles. The sad thing is that I stopped cold turkey all together and now I have nothing...

Impressive! People who can keep balanced are pretty cool people to hang out with. I would play video games but maybe I just want to keep training for the fun of it. Why jump across a roof gap in AC Brotherhood when I can do it in real life?
I'm also into writing and cinematography. I don't know how balanced my life it in terms of the outdoor and indoor. But so far outdoor is great when it comes to training and indoors is fun when editing videos, stretching, eating and sleeping. I remember I had a gf too, it wasn't all that fun because I was working 12 hours a day and she lived far away, and it kinda was a bit too sexual and I didn't think it felt too right. I think I'm happier single, or I can date someone who is athletic mainly because athletic is my type. at this point my eyes are tired and idk what i am typing, but keep on trucking and goodnight, hope my advice wasn't half-asleep rubbish and hopefully it helped!

I'm waiting to be shipped to boot camp. I've been looking for a job, but other than that I have nothing else to do. I didn't want to go back to school because if my shipping date changed that tuition down the drain.

I feel I'm not qualified to answer this as I spend most of my days running after my 2 year old and my stepsons, but at the end of the day, there's nothing better than re-watching FMA: Brotherhood or something of the like. Beforehand, yeah, it got tiring. I still had a job and had my **** together, but I just didn't like going out to be social. I didn't know how. To be honest, I still don't. But while I help my son grow, he helps me to learn how to let go of things like social anxiety and being bored for the sake of being bored. You know who never gets bored? 2 year olds!
