>What about people who work/school from home?

Depends if you work or take classes from home but still regularly leave the house or have a work from home job that requires you to leave the house sometimes you're not a hikikomori. However if you are employed remotely at home or take online classes from home but still do not leave your house/room for prolonged periods ranging from months or even years at a time you are still A hikikomori (but not a NEET.) It is stated in the sticky thread that a hikikomori can have a job but works from home only.

Welcome to /hikki/ a place for reclusive adolescents or adults who withdraw from society.

What is allowed on this board? What is its purpose?

What is not allowed on this board?.

Rule 1. Please do not encourage anyone to become a hikikomori

Rule 2. Do not bully or harass someone simply for being a hikikomori

Rule 3. Keep trolling to a minimum (No flames)

Rule 4. Do not help others to plan or commit suicide suicide threads are fine but it is better to give advice rather than to lead the person on.

Rule 5. No topics not related to this board please

Rule 6. Encouraging any kind of drug use

Rule 7. Giving or requesting advice on how to enter the Hikikomori lifestyle

Rule 8. No Shitposting please be respectful and be genuine with your post /hikki/ is a slow traffic board for true hikikomoris to have a place to talk and nothing more.

THINGS TO CONSIDER!!.

1. Hikikomori 引きこもり or ひきこもり by definition means in English pulling inward, being confined", i.e., "acute social withdrawal"

2. A hikikomori is someone who withdraws themselves away from all forms of social contact and stays at home all day ether in a bedroom or apartment they live in usually for about 6 months or more.

3. There is a difference between hikikomoris and neets neets are simply just unemployed people who don't want to work but still go outside and socialize but some hikikomoris are unemployed neets but unlike normalfag neets they stay inside all the time.

4. a hikikomori can have a job (But works from home only).

5. The only time a hikikomori would ever go outside is for hunger or if its a life threatening emergency

6. Going to your day job not socializing while out at work going home and staying in your room for the rest of the night is NOT AND DOES NOT MAKE YOU A Hikikomori being a hikikomori and a shy introverted person are not the same thing.

(Pretenders and normalfags will be banned).

7. If you are a recovering hikikomori that is okay.

8. While initially a Japanese phenomenon, Hikikomoriism happens all around the world.

9. While this is mainly an English speaking board both English and Japanese can be spoken on this board.

10. You must be a hikikomori or a recovering hikikomori to post here if you're not a hikikomori you will be banned.

New comers and outsiders please take these into consideration thank you.

Any anon here figure out a way to make some money without going out to your house? I tried looking for a job but I'm only qualified for a service industry which required a lot of interacting with peoples (I did worked for 3 months but I quit because I couldn't get along with my co-workers and having trouble talking to customer). I'm not asking much in term of payment, just enough to pay the bills and food. I live with my parents, I dont have any student debt or car's loan, I'm happy if I could make $500 a month just from the comfort of my bedroom.

>Are you at least content with your current situation?

I don't know. On a day-to-day basis, yeah I guess. Work is interesting, I like to cook and try out different recipes, reading manga and books, talking on imageboards to anons like you.

More abstractly, sometimes I feel like I'm only fine on the surface and I'm going to somehow destruct eventually. I know that social withdrawal is a Bad Thing for people. Maybe I should get a cat. If I've inherited schizophrenia and it starts presenting (I think it already has a bit, no idea, I'm kind of terrified of going to a psychiatrist) I think I'll have to go see a doctor and get some meds. It is truly a horrible disease

>how long have you been a hikikomori and how often do you leave the house?

Maybe around 6 months. Before that I would go to work in person, and go to restaurants and bars sometimes (always by myself). Most of my cooking is vegetables so I get groceries about once/1.5 wks, luckily the supermarket is only a block away. I need a haircut and am wondering whether to just do it myself, since I'm not trying to impress anyone anyway.

> I usually only leave once a month for groceries and every other week for fast food and that's about it really.

By the way, are you content with your situation? Are you staying with family or by yourself? What kind of food do you cook that lets you leave only once a month? I've been thinking about freezing vegetables but I feel like that'd ruin the quality

I've been thinking about doing this myself as well although i'm afraid that i will fuck up to be honest. My mom used to cut people's hair for a living so after i go weeks or even months without a haircut or shaving she cleans me up.

Sounds like a good day.

>Maybe i should get a cat

If you can afford having one go ahead but most hikikomori can not afford having a pet also having a pet actually requires you to leave the house more often too depending on the animal.

>I feel like I'm only fine on the surface and I'm going to somehow destruct eventually.

I can relate anon i do feel fine on on the surface but deep down i know i'm not.

>Luckly the supermarket is only a block away.

Same with my supermarket.

>By the way, are you content with your situation?

For the most part yes however i do have days where i wake up and feel sad because i have missed the life bus.

>Are you staying with family or by yourself?

I was living with my parents but then i was kicked out 4 years ago now i live in a house for the mentally ill with 2 other people of course i never leave my room so they never really see me anyway plus i sleep during the day and i am up at night.

>What Kind of food do you cook that lets you leave only once a month?

I generally only buy frozen food the last time i went to the store was July 12th. and i bought Pepsi Beef Jerky M&ms chips french fries chicken nuggets microwave cheese burgers potatoes apples and milk do you think i should change something in my dietPost too long.

It's not too hard with the right tools. (Your mom would probably be able to help pick out good ones.) With an electric trimmer, you basically just snap on a little comb and comb your hair with it, and with an electric shaver, you just rub your face with it once a day.

I was leery of that stuff myself for a long time (mainly the idea of sharp cutting implements going near my jugular vein), but eventually I took the plunge and haven't had any troubles with it.

Have any other hikkis here ever thought of or tried to commit suicide in the past??. It's been 10 years almost 11 and almost nothing i do makes me happy anymore and i have little to no motivation to do anything with my time spent in isolation anymore. I've tried asking people online about working from home but most people say that's not realistic and that i should just go outside and get over it. I honestly can't take it anymore and if i don't find anything to help motivate myself soon suicide seems like a good option i guess. But i would be a lot happier if i could just earn some money without leaving my room or having the motivation to at least do something instead of feeling like i'm completely drained of life to be honest i'm crying while typing this and i can't take it anymore can any other hikkis relate??.

You / we are loosers in the eyes of society, and that's it. We're not gonna do any spiritual revolution. Our personalities are shit regardless of the social system we're in.

We have no motivation, no objective goals, we're emotionally fucked up, we're useless and our purpose is waiting to die rotting in our rooms.

Waifuism is escapism developed to a laughable extreme.

You think you're smart and that you're getting enlightenment, but you're simply delusional. You'll be a wizard in no time? That's weird, since you sound like a 20 year old. If you're near 30 you should have got through this delusional phase.

Exactly this potential is useless if the progress will always be pointless in the eyes of society. If you made any spiritual progress then maybe it will help you cope with life for a little bit of time but it will always be another form of escapism from your demons. you pretend to be enlightened and intellectual to feel better about yourself and that you're beyond the normal minds but in reality you're no more than an unmotivated zombie living in the corner of your room.

>Our personalities are shit regardless of the social system we're in.

This, regardless of the fucked up world we would've been the same even if the world was a heaven. We're extremely shy, have sever social anxiety and unable to interact normally. the problem is laying within us not the world at this point. ( Yeah I know the world is boring and we've no interest to participate in the normal activities but that's not what I meant by (the problem is us not the world)

>You think you're smart and that you're getting enlightenment, but you're simply delusional. You'll be a wizard in no time? That's weird, since you sound like a 20 year old. If you're near 30 you should have got through this delusional phase.

I agree. he has a despise for women ( I agree to some extent they're boring and not as intelligent as males).

He sounds like he's still not burnt out or depressed enough yet to not care about anything along with his spiritual bullshit.

That's true one thing i love about being a hikikomori is that i am completely alone and i can completely be myself nobody is around to judge me or anything.

>I realized. Being alone, I can do anything. How great is that? Also, I like squats. Some sit-ups and crunches as well. Other than that, I don't even have a method, I just move fast and spend energy.

Interesting i should probably try some of that stuff out sometime.

Well, my enormously autistic brain resulted in a mind that can never stop, especially when isolated. I was able to rebuild myself at least as someone that can survive no matter what, taking advantage of the fact that my mind refuses to stop thinking, and of contact with ancient ideas. I just wish I could make other people in a similar position stop suffering so much so I don't have to see as many suicides all over the place anymore. Maybe avoiding the internet entirely and being alone forever would be better, but I would rather not become even more pessimistic. Then again, the patterns seem to indicate that being as pessimistic as possible is the correct attitude to have. At the same time, if I give up and stop caring about anyone at all, and completely stop communicating, there will be no going back. I will eventually lose any ability to connect that I still have. Just one step forward from my current position and I will be alone forever and completely disconnected from other people. I'm trying to prevent that, but it just seems to become more likely by the day.

>>6032

>He sounds like he's still not burnt out or depressed enough

That's what I was like before. I think I first considered suicide when I was 5 or 6, so misery is nothing new in my life. I just learned to manage it pretty well and keep it from killing me, for the most part. Trained myself to not feel anything unwillingly. Not that it's easy.

I love fall and winter, it's my favorite time of year. Here are some of my favorite things about it:

>bundling up in blankets

>sipping hot tea/coco/coffee

>gettin' comfy

>less guilt about not going outside, since most people don't go out in cold weather

>watching the leaves/snow fall outside your window

>less noise from outside because everyone is indoors

I tried a keto diet last winter since a study showed it helped seasonal affective disorder which I have. It was good, I think it makes sense. Our ancestors took food animals and seperated meat from fat. made both good to store for the winter. Grains are more recent with agriculture. Good for rationing, can weigh accurately. But the keto made the winter less hard. I started it with the start of winter and kept it for as long as I could. Then I do cheat days with sugar free snacks mostly. But then the holidays where I treat myself to gifts and snacks. This was nice and the sadness did not come as bad as usually. Maybe try it, but make sure not to completely give up regular exercise if you do it. Maybe even start. I jumprope and it doesnt take long. Then I shower in nice hot water and get cozy at my desk. It feels nicer to do this with the jumping . I put some decorations up, a small tree recently, used to some garlande and the lights along a shelf, Are nice. I have a soft blanket that is usually too warm in the summer months. This is nice too. Sorry if this was hard to understand. I am still learning english

The worst thing for me as a hikki is that I am slowing but steadily un-learning my own native language.

English isn't my native language, it's German. I have no social contacts, no friends, no one, I don't even really talk to my family (rarely only). I don't have online friends either. 90% of all "conversations" I have are posting in English on 4chan (full of fucking normies though) or 8ch.

I can't say a full sentence in German without stuttering, and fucking up the tone and stress of the words. I also struggle remembering words, and sometimes I mess up the more complicated grammatical structures.

It goes without saying that the same applies to English, since I only ever write English and never speak it out loud.

I feel like a foreigner in my own country.

If you're thinking about being autistic or something, you should go to a psychiatrist as well. All that psychologists would do is talking to you and making you understanding yourself with chit chating, but the psychiatric will try to scratch the problem out of you and ask for symptoms, looking for a possible mental disease and ways to cure it, by therapy or drugs.

My english is much better than my french imo since i used to play and still playing some mmos that is if my shitty set isn't letting me down. Currently i'm just browsing exactly 3 imageboards all day or watch KBS or NHK (Like you learn 2 languages at the same time)

I feel empty because i don't enjoy anything and i'm delaying a really important project and i feel bad about it.

My cats are the only ones that comfort me each day.

Joshua's Withdrawal is a digital Ebook written by John Flannery.

Joshua West is a 25-year-old physics graduate. Who has lived the life of a recluse in his parent’s comfortable Cambridge home for two years. Joshua has been influenced by the Japanese phenomenon called Hikikomori whereby thousands of young men have withdrawn from society.

Having had plenty of time to ponder his situation, Joshua has concluded that he is now obsolete and is therefore preparing himself and his family for his imminent act of ritualistic suicide. Part of his preparation involves writing a series of death poems that he reads to his family.

Joshua’s parents are dealing with this situation stoically, while his little sister is trying to persuade him not to die prematurely for her sake. Joshua is convinced that he is doing God’s work by taking his own life.

This text also deals with the effects of the changing role of young men in a modern society where women are beginning to take on a more masculine working role.There are some lighter moments in this very dark novella but it deals mainly with a young man struggling to cope with his own imminent mortality.

One year ago, Sagiri Izumi became step-siblings with Masamune Izumi. But the sudden death of their parents tears their new family apart, resulting in Sagiri becoming a hikikomori which cut her off from her brother and society.

While caring for what's left of his family, Masamune earns a living as a published light novel author with one small problem: he's never actually met his acclaimed illustrator, Eromanga-sensei, infamous for drawing the most lewd erotica. Through an embarrassing chain of events, he learns that his very own little sister was his partner the whole time!

As new characters and challenges appear, Masamune and Sagiri must now face the light novel industry together. Eromanga-Sensei follows the development of their relationship and their struggle to become successful; and as Sagiri slowly grows out of her shell, just how long will she be able to hide her true persona from the rest of the world?

Do you blame your parents for you becoming a hikikomori?. Or are you thankful that they are supportive in providing you with whatever you need in your isolation?.

For me i have mixed feelings on one hand i'm very thankful of them for being supportive in providing me with whatever i need in my isolation while on the other hand i'm angry at them because they pressured me too much growing up to follow society's rules and expectations and their own expectations as well and they still do it to this day . I'm also angry that they never took the time to sit down listen to me and hear me out and ask me how are you feeling?? or what's wrong?? and so on.

What is your relationship with your parents like? also do you communicate with your parents or are you completely withdrawn from your family as well?.

I do blame my parents. They were cruel to me as a child: constant put-downs, criticisms, every five seconds a new humiliation to endure. They both brushed me off when I was being bullied at school, and neither of them bothered to give me advice when I asked. I went into school a neurotic mess and couldn't stand up for myself in any situation.

Neither of them made any attempt to bond yet somehow expect me to love them. My father was always finding new ways to spend less money on me. It always felt like I was somehow wasting his money by existing. My father never gave me a kind word but when he came home he'd expect me to pretend to be happy to see him, otherwise he'd be furious.

I know most of the users on here don't want to change and some are happy and content with being a hikikomori but i have a question for those who are recovering hikkis what are you doing to fix your situation?? and do you think you will succeed in the outside world or just go back to being a hikki again??.

Also question for other current hikkis have you ever tried to reintegrate back into society??. I've tried many times in the past but was always met with hostility so i gave up on even trying.

Of course, but I'm not working until it happens. And even then, I'll probably look for alternatives.

When my parents die, it will be at least 20 years from now, at that point I don't even know what kind of a rotten man I would be at that point, so it's pointless to worry about that now. I will probably be so fucked up that I could get neetbux or have enough reasons to kill myself.

A new good game still comes out here and there (mostly Yakuza, because Sega still does what Nintendon't). I don't think homosexualming PCs are worth it, though. I have a PC for gayming, and I regret buying it (more specifically, I especially regret spending so much on it, it was overkill) because I could just have waited another 6 years or something, then get a really cheap used PS4 and I would have the same games then, plus the exclusives that I like. I waited until the PS3 came out to get the PS2 and waited until the PS4 to get the PS3 (and my dad gave me the PS1 when the PS2 came out, so I was always behind on consoles, not that I cared, and the PS1 was the best so it didn't matter), and I haven't regretted it yet. It's not like I play multiplayer anyway.

PCs for recent gaming are inherently shitty as computers, because then they have to run Windows 7 (10 is not even an option, of course), and the hardware will have to be 100% NSA approved and there's nothing you can do about it. Because of that, the computer ends up becoming a console anyway, since it's terrible for anything else, and you should just have another computer anyway for everything else like I do. I think it's smarter to just use computers for emulators and older games that run on Wine or VMs (and that actually covers most games worth playing anyway). Just having a PS4 at least keeps cancerous software out of your computers, you get the exclusives, and just buying a cheap used one later on prevents them from getting your money. Then again, piracy is easier on PC, but a lot of the time, when the price is decently fair and I have nothing to hate about the developers, I don't mind spending potential savings on a game, preferably if it's a physical copy, unless it's so cheap that it doesn't matter. Other than that, used games are cheap too.

Overall, spending too much on gaming nowadays is a waste. Just get some nice controllers (for older console games I mostly use my PS1 Hori stick from Japan with adapters, these days, just because it's super comfortable and doesn't hurt my left thumb like every d-pad seems to, and the big buttons are much more comfortable as well) and play on emulators, and old consoles when you can't emulate.Post too long.

I don't fret too much about hardware anymore; I've been getting a lot more enjoyment out of quirky indie games recently (like the kind you find on GOG) and they don't have as demanding hardware requirements.

They all like to try new ideas the big AAA games are scared to, but it's rare to find an indie game that gets everything right.

I've done that as well. I can run quite a lot of games like that on Arch, on a 9 year old desktop with a processor that is quite a few years even older than that (a replacement for the original). Even if you just find a really old computer in a dumpster, you can still probably run more games on it than you will ever have the time to play, especially considering emulators. People don't realize just how much old hardware is capable of, because they only pay attention to current, unnecessarily bloated software. Honestly, graphics haven't even improved in quite a long time. You can't even see the different at this point, the games just get heavier. People just don't see how valuable these machines are. I guess that's one reason why they keep getting worse, in many ways. Just the natural consequence of letting normalfags influence technology, and making computers that can be used by anyone. If you aren't one of them, you are already living in a post-scarcity world, as far as entertainment goes, and that's fantastic. It's a shame that it will be ruined for everyone else, especially people that are being born now, that will have no skills and no freedom when they're my age, but I'll be just fine. Too much fun for just one life.

I am wonder how many hikkis on this board are 30+

The media attention on us hikikomori has escalated dramatically in the last 20 or so years, but a lot of the people who talk about it or research say that there have been hikkis since the 1980s.

I have seen one elder hikki, who is supposedly over 60 years old. I am wondering if there are more hikkis here over 30. The statistics say that a lot of hikkis are older, like 30-45. So what is it like for you?. Do you get used to it after awhile? I always imagine that a hikikomori is someone who uses the internet constantly. I can't imagine what it was like to be a hikki before internet existed.

Not as into Nietzsche as I was many years ago. I like Evola a lot more, and what I know about Heidegger and his philosophy of being and of death, as well. Both being critics of Nietzsche, of course, that's why I mention them. But overall, I am definitely a (Neo)Platonist, fundamentally. I think I mentioned that in a previous post. That's what all of my ideas ended up pointing towards, including my ascetic values, and my agreement with the idea that the physical world is just an imperfect shadow of the real world, and just happens to temporarily manifest eternal forms that exist outside of itself, and outside of time. Nietzsche was too focused on the material world (and that is definitely understandable, considering what he was reacting against). I have also realized that glorifying the past too much is a mistake, since the world actually has always been shit and I can't pretend that the things that I appreciate about the past are all that there was, especially considering that most of humanity has always moved towards degradation, and making life miserable for everyone. The greatest minds in history have always been critics of their own civilizations, so I think glorifying their civilizations is not all that rational, even though I may believe that some of them really were overall better than what we have today.

Regardless, even if you keep things on that scale, the plebs always win in the end and the better people out there will always have to run away from that. I don't believe you could ever have a civilization that doesn't see someone like me, or even Nietzsche, as enemies. Essentially, if you're not a dumb animal, society will always be your enemy. Even if you just want to be left alone, good luck with that, it won't be allowed. To me, it doesn't matter whether a civilization is being ruled by the masses or an elite that will inevitably be just another group of idiots, I don't want anything to do with either of them. Isolation, partial or total, is the only solution. As long as I can do that, as long as people can be detached from the fate of the masses, the whole issue is irrelevant. The problem is that we are being cornered.

>humans are assholes by nature

Exactly, so getting rid of them is the only real, guaranteed, permanent solution, so you don't have to care. Or just having a very small population of weird possibly autistic geniuses that don't even need a government in the first place, but I doubt that will ever happen unless reality suddenly turns into the Universal Century timeline of Mobile Suit Gundam and the Newtypes wipe out all of the old humans. But that's literally reality becoming anime, so it's more likely that it will continue to be bloated. Conveniently, humanity happens to be capable of destroying itself, so the problem could end up solving itself. Overall, all a moral individual has to do in order to avoid making things worse is not reproduce. You are living in a world that is objectively shitty, so don't bring more lives into it for no reason. Other than that, just ride the tiger. It's not like you are contractually obligated to care about your species' survival, and they have clearly doomed themselves to begin with. Not having to care is very convenient, actually. It can keep you from going insane from watching everything not go your way and everything that you support eventually end up turning against you. In politics, you can't succeed without popularity, and popularity can only be achieved if your ideas are stupid to begin with, or just the lies that people want to hear. Basically I just want to be allowed to live in my own world. Just the freedom to be a hermit.

>The best cult leaders domesticate people to make the people's lives better

The problem with doing anything that way is that every institution is eventually degraded as well, and back to misery we go. The fact that something appeals to the masses is generally a pretty bad sign to begin with. I definitely don't want anything to do with politics anymore. I just want to be able to stay away from humanity's problems, and ideally save people from suffering, specifically people that are different and I think can't be blamed for this, the people being attacked. Burning the hive would be productive, but it's not something that I can personally do, so it doesn't matter. Personal freedom and privacy, that's all I care about, pPost too long.

I gave up on politics too long ago I remember four years ago I was still interested in reading about humanity's problems thinking that the more I read about them the more intellectual I will be. Actually politics is one of the most normalfag activity and only normalfags can be highly interested in it. because it deals with their problems. It has nothing to do with our problems and how we live our life.

>and ideally save people from suffering, specifically people that are different and I think can't be blamed for this

I had this idea in my mind for quite a while but eventually I gave up on it too, I realized that I can't save anyone I can hardly save myself and live in pace. I don't want anyone to disturb my lifestyle so I gave up on humanity and on breeding.

I am actually not that pessimistic when it comes to that. Well, I know I have helped people in the past, and that a few times people even responded saying that something I said gave them an epiphany that allowed them to suddenly understand something that they didn't understand before, that very few people actually do, and even fewer even attempt to give an explanation for, and only some even succeed in doing that well, so it's not completely wasted effort if you can even call it that, since I just help people by doing what I want to do anyway, which is being insane and testing uncommon ideas and ways of looking at reality.

Being like that is kinda inherently helpful since it allows people to hear new things, and answers for questions that everyone else seems to refuse to answer. I'm the guy that tells you that the egg did indeed come before the chicken, because chickens weren't the first animals to lay eggs, which is obvious as hell, but the adults in my family always insisted (and still do) that answering this question is impossible, even after hearing my answer, and that is a good example of how limited most people actually are, and why you can't expect them to say anything that requires even a tiny amount of thought, and making any argument that isn't completely generic and given to them by someone else. Just being willing to say something different is inherently productive since someone out there may be willing to take that idea into consideration, or to use it somehow, but will never have the opportunity to do so if you don't share it. I suppose even looking stupid in a completely new way is productive, since someone else can learn something new from that, and not repeat your mistake.

I can't make someone stop feeling miserable, but I can tell them how they could do it, and how I do it, and maybe things that I say will eventually lead to some change. If something that I say positively influences someone, then that's a good thing even if I am never informed that it did indeed help. I just assume that occasionally it does, and I also believe that they are similar to me in one way or another or it wouldn't have worked in the first place.
