I feel like I haven't done shit with my life and that I'm wasting my youth by the second.

Anyway, post your 23rd wallpaper.

Happy belated birthday anon. Have a pic of my cat. I'm 23 in a few weeks, and I know how you feel. Try to take your feeling and use it to motivate yourself to make the changes that you need to. Also remember that sometimes you can feel that way no matter how much you do. Covid has not helped my education or career, that's for sure. I'm trying to take up programming in the time I'd usually waste.

Oddly comforting statement, thanks.
>>7852277
I try to more and more. At 21 I quit my job and drove around the country (America) without telling anyone where I was. Did that for a year, met some really nice people, and some not so nice ones. Sucks that I see people I graduated with in 2017 actually doing something with their lives, ya know?
>>7852278
Thats part of it, but there are plenty of things I could be doing that I talk myself out of, like going innawoods to camp for a week, or a roadtrip, ect.
>>7852286
Not smart enough for programming, so I picked up drawing/painting again just to kill the time. Who knows, maybe I'll be able to make money off of it one day. Thanks everyone for the wallpapers.

Your feeling is right. Act on it, only you can know best. I recommend finding a lovely woman to call your own, I know having one for myself pretty much defined my 20s and my mental state.

I know, easier said than done. Get to work.

Path ahead is forked. One leads to oblivion, the other to an actual future. Comparing yourself will never get you anywhere, because someone will always be ahead. What really matters is how happy you are. Do things that make you happy, and if making money or public accomplishments makes you happy, maybe try learning an instrument. Get some community college degree. Take 2 years of hard work now before it's too late. Don't live with regret for the things you didn't try to do.

23 in march, will be 1 year into my computer engineering degree.

Honestly once thought I was "too old" for school. But I only now realize how blessed it is to become pro at something and not fuck around. I get so much fucking confidence programming and fixing shit its unreal.

Just do cool shit man, shit that matters and is profound. Give yourself a month to change your shit completely you will not regret it. Tou have to unlearn shit that's fucking with your energy/vision/power level, I recommend lifting and taking a blood test to supplement your body if deficient in something which fucks people up.

Time will fly either way and no matter if you live a dream life you're going to feel cursed and depressed. No gf or millions of dollars will ever fix that.
Just get over it. Do shit. Act.

It's all in your head man. Most important thing you can do is to stop comparing yourself to others. The only enemy you have to beat is you from yesterday. Be better, stronger, and smarter than that motherfucker and you will find your way.

hey anon, happy birthday

that's surprisingly normal at your age, but as long as you keep it up - keep pursuing hobbies and interests (or perhaps, getting some in the first place), keep putting yourself out there in social events - it will get better. remember that life doesn't end at 30, and you have plenty of time to make something of yourself.

You are a kid, you still have heaps of time on your side, and probably no strong familiar or work related responsabilities are tying you down.
I also wasted 2 years of my life when I was 21 doing nothing and without a purpose, feeling like everyone was moving on towards adulthood and money but me. Now I'm working on something I enjoy and I keep few but very close friendships, so when you believe all is lost and pointless remember that the future is always yours.

lmfao
I've always had women and they didn't do much for me or my mental state.
they all tried though but I don't think I was ever interested in changing "for" someone else.
the breakups have always among the greatest catalysts of change throughout my life though so maybe women do define much of these years one way or another.
anyway OP
if you have the idea that you haven't done shit with your life it's probably because there's some standard in your mind for what you'd like your life to look like or at least for what you'd consider a life with some substance to it that you're comparing your current situation against.
all of this is to say you probably have some idea of what you want and what you'd like for yourself and your life.
and the reason you feel you're wasting your life by the second probably stems from the tension between this standard that you're to some degree aware of and your current actions (more so than your current situation).
which means you feel this way because you think this way.
which is too many words to say you probably know why you feel this way and you probably know what you have to do in order to stop feeling this way.
no judgement.
i've been very aware of many of my flaws and contradictions since I was very young and it took me over a decade just to start on the way to doing something about it.
but at the end of the day it all comes down to what you're willing to do and endure.
what are you so scared of?
what is it that you have to lose?
what's the worst that could happen?
what
are
you

Happy birthday.
Wait till you hit 30.
You will never beat procrastination; you need to learn to do things in small chunks to accumulate experience that will help you do the big things faster.
The biggest regrets you'll have will be about not attempting things because they were too complicated; you'll half finish many things, but you'll always walk away with experience.

25 here. Life's a meme. I'm so fucking bored of it but on the other hand, every time I meet people or do something out of line I get sweaty hands, my heart rate goes up,... you know the usual bullshit. I don't identify with those feelings but it just happens and that's the way it is apparently. I'm playing a role that I don't want to play. Sometimes when I walk somewhere I stop and think of spontaneous out of line things I could do to prove that I still have control over myself but I never do them. I'm not scared at that moment. I feel nothing but a wall. It's like someone stole the keys from my keyboard and only left a "continue boring shit" - key. I've started to meditate to get out of this mindset but it's not really helping. One thing I have noticed is that I'm thinking ahead too much. If I stop doing that life gains some soul and I gain some peace but it also takes my ability to dream and speculate which again takes all motivation to change anything. All in all, it feels like all my actions are deterministic and the only thing I can change is my perspective on life. Right now it's about 9pm. I could go outside for a night walk and take my beer with me. There's certainly a part of me that wants to do that but I won't. I don't know why. I'm not sure what kind of wall that is. Every 2-3 days I keep having the same thoughts about that.

nihilists are fucking idiots

Watch tradition, there's some things you're born to enjoy. Cringe ass socialists, marxists or whatever those jews call themselves will tell you the human is like an empty doll that gets filled through education.That's a fucking lie. We're more savage than we're thinkers.

Go with your gut and own life. Fucking loser pseudo-retard. If it's too much I would tell you, kill yourself... But you're sending a deadly hit to your family. Even if they didn't care about you much, they will feel something is fucked up about their life beyond reparation. So don't do it. You will figure out something.

Its normal to feel that way op. I felt that way and still do sometimes. I guess the best way to feel like you're not wasting your time is to seek novel experiences and to continually be improving yourself. Read a new book, work out, work on your relationships, etc. Live intentionally and realize happiness is something you build, not something you find. Take this all with a grain of salt because I'm just some idiot on the internet, but I can say that since I've started doing these things I have felt better. I'm only a few years older than you but I can say it does get better if you put in a bit of work. Godspeed on your journey, and enjoy the wallpaper.

OP here, I didn't expect to see this thread still up, but here we are.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the kind words and honest advice. Back in late December was probably the most depressed I've ever been in my life. Compounded with the fact that I saw none of my family for Thanksgiving prior to that, as well as being alone on Christmas and New Years. Multiply that by me just turning 23 it felt like a punch in the gut. I was pretty much depressed all throughout January as well. Which is weird because I was never the type to be emotional or get very depressed about anything.

It's nearing March now and I feel better. I took the advice from the thread to heart and started focusing on being more spontaneous and adventurous with my free time.

23 is a startling age.
25 is approaching fast and then 30.
I always assumed that I would kill myself by 30 but I might be too much of a coward when push comes to shove.

23 is just out the gate. Just feel around for what you'd like to do. Then find out step one of the process of doing it.

happy very late birthday anon!
i am 22 turning 23 in a few months
was always fat, uneducated, insecure, poor in teens. graduated college on mostly scholarship and lost 20% of my body weight over the pandemic. have a decent job right now but still not where i want to be in life.
the best thing for my shit has been realizing that not everyone's meant to be "someone". someone famous someone special someone important. if everyone was meant to be special then nobody would be special.
i do my best to challenge change and improve myself as much as i can for the time being. the people worst off comfort themselves by convincing themselves that theyre doing good or "better than others". never settle.

35 year old millennial boomer here.
Your 20's will fly by, it's important you do so something. But you will probably hear so much advice it will be confusing.
As corny as it sounds let your heart/gut decide and be careful because sometimes your want and desire might overwhelm you and that gut instinct turns quiet.

D: Never Give Up

I felt for sure last night
That once we said goodbye
No one else will know these lonely dreams
No one else will know that part of me
I'm still driving away
And I'm sorry every day
I won't always love these selfish things
I won't always live
Not stopping
It was my turn to decide
I knew this was our time
No one else will have me like you do
No one else will have me, only you
You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine
Amazing still it seems
I'll be twenty-three
I won't always love what I'll never have
I won't always live in my regrets
You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine
You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

I will be turning 23 in like 3 weeks, have been feeling like that for a while now but after the pandemic kinda destroyed the prospects of my inertia driven life I decided to revive some childhood dreams and have been working towards them just because I didn't really know what else to do other than become some computer vegetable that lives of his mom. Every step forward makes my life harder, the culmination of my "dream" will turn my world 180º degrees and I can already forseen many years of struggle and hardship. And while I feel like I'm going somewhere I still don't know if it's what I want but I really don't have anything else to do but carry on. I just wish I could tackle my personal development with more diligence, I got two jobs and getting the needed money and papers to achieve the more material parts of my dream but I'm not even close to being mature enough to face the future. I haven't touched my books in years, I can barely bring myself to study, I stopped working out, I have no social skills or network. Wish me luck, I'll need it out there.

best advice I or anyone can give you is to learn to manage your time properly. If I don't plan out what I'm gonna do with my day I'll just play video games all day. Seriously dude, decide ahead of time what you want to do and make time for it, schedule time for cleaning your house, time to hang out with friends, time to learn new stuff. If nothing else you'll feel like you're achieving stuff

I'm 33, have a biomolecular science degree and am stocking shelves at the local supermarket. I'll just leave you with that quote from fightclub:

“ Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off. ”

Kinda related. I'm not sure if I should be grateful or panicked. I'm 30 and got covid about 6 weeks back, after I recovered fully from it it's like I can see for the first time in probably 20 years...

All my life I've just played vidya, watched porn, and neglected everything else. Now I have no desire to do any of those things. I actually have energy to clean my apartment, go see old friends, visit my family, and I'm planning to go on a trip outside my own country for the first time ever.

I just keep thinking of all the time I've wasted by living in a mist which drained my energy and forced me to sit in front of the computer every day for years on end.

You're quite young, if this bothers you i urge you to try and change it, although I understand that's easier said than done. I'm 28 and this hole only goes deeper if you sit around like me. Although there is an alternative of making peace with "wasting" time but not everyone is satisfied with this.

Been browsing this website for a whole lot of years. This is one of the honest threads I've ever come across.

HB OP. Stay clean. Don't do drugs. Deep inside, you know what you gotta do, you just don't have the strenght and courage to do it. What you will do in 5 - 7 years will define your whole life and it will harder and harder to do it unless you start it right now. Be happy and stay close to the ones who are important to you. Today is always the best day ever.

Turning 23 very soon myself...
I've wasted 4 years in college so far, and my degree is still nowhere in sight.
Feels like I haven't learned anything usefull at all. I'm now pursuing a degree in the same field as my estranged father. I like it, but I just don't do anything, except locking myself in my room and wasting my time. I have zero discipline and a terrible work ethic. I don't know why but I just can't seem to stop fucking up, even though this is probably my last chance at uni. Failing where my father succeeded deeply hurts my pride, and thinking about the future makes me shiver, since I have no alternatives (yet, I guess...). I know what I have to do, but I don't. I just feel so trapped.

Anyway, happy birthday to you and thanks for reading my blog. I sincerely hope you'll find peace

Then consider it a proper welcome to your 20s, happens to a LOT of people.

Spend some time, disengage from life. Maybe meditate a bit and look for what makes you happy.

If you feel trapped, don't say "I can't do this" and start saying "how man I make this a reality." You'll find there are a lot of cool things out there you can make happen. Enough moonshots and something will stick.

Speaking as a 24 y/o who was in the same spot as you only a year ago after graduating. Took a year to figure my shit out, and decided I needed to see the world so I decided to start applying for jobs and shit in other countries that got me excited (about anything?) for the first time in years.

Lot of rejections, but eventually something stuck. One year late I moved from the US to the Netherlands to work a dream job in VR shit.

The feeling will go away if you break it down into small steps and start thinking in terms of possibility and not limitations. That's not easy, but it's what helped me.

Don't let life happen to you. Get proactive and there's nothing wrong with seeking help.

Good luck anon

You did that at the best possible age. Everyone wishes they traveled the country in one big road trip, but most people never do. You have plenty of time to build something from where you are now, but the more you try to fight the urges to succeed the more regrets you'll end up with. It's ok to not want things. But if you do, you will need to get them yourself. It's ok to want be things and make changes, but try to think ahead as best you can. You're dealing with something we all do. Gl and never doubt yourself.

Not OP either, but seconded, thanks for sharing. Motivation might be temporary, but I think I managed to channel mine long enough to set up a longer-term strategy. After years of doing nothing and playing a metric ton of MMOs I took my first baby-steps towards not living on autopilot.

It's not much, but I wrote exactly one chapter of content for a potential book (which I've been "planning" to write since I turned 20). It's not much, maybe 3 pages, written over the last few days, 30-60 minutes at a time. I think the pace makes it less daunting, and is probably maintainable over a long period of time.

One foot in front of the other, and 3 pages at a time, but slow progress is, quite literally, infinitely faster than no progress. It sounds a bit romantic, but I guess I'm still on a bit of a high... It's such a tiny shift in my lifestyle, and yet I feel more optimism than I have in my entire adult life.

P.S. The meditation thing isn't a meme. I gave it a try over the last two days, so I'm still a total scrub. But, in terms of return on investment, there's not much better uses of 10 minutes a day. My anxiety has been totally in-check and my mind is crystal clear for a while after. You won't regret it.

Here's the intro course I started using:

I immediately started to fall back again. Life's a series of up and downs. I feel like being happy actually means recognizing when a "down" is coming, and treating yourself in the best way possible to try and invert the trend back to going up. It's all about finding coping mechanisms. Also, living alone sucks hard, it's not making things easier. Happy Birthday 4 months late btw.

Don't give up if earning your degree is your dream. Financial aid and scholarships are available. I was forced to drop out when I was 23. I went back when I was 31 and I will graduate next year. If you go to a community college and a public uni, its affordable, especially with aid.

This actually made me wanna cry out so loud. I too am pursuing a degree my mother had and i i loved it too, used to think i was good at it when i was in high school. Turns out that couldnt be further from the truth, i failed several times, each time promising myself to do better but time just runs out and i keep wasting it and everything repeats. I feel like a lost cause now.

I felt similarly around 22/23, but gradually I began to make changes like quitting porn, reading more, taking up art. It felt almost like I was being pulled upward by some invisible hand. Maybe that's just maturing, but I'd say listen to your better intuitions. Try to cut out the habits that you sense are ugly and degrading and cultivate the ones that you sense are good for you and the people you care about. Not everything in my life right now is outstanding, and there's a lot of stuff you can't control, but having knowledge and skills that can't be taken away from you goes a long way.

i feel that i wasted most of my life. i barely remember anything from the past year. i have no stories to tell, no memories to hold close to my heart. im just drifting through it all. even during the present, im just being dragged through my life. i have the sense that my life is just a movie im being forced to watch. i have passions, but they feel so distant. they give me something tangible to be proud of, but its not like i have anyone to show off to.

I'm 25 and I feel you brate. That is our generation though. Pointless, our dreams are like pennies, usually found on the ground and don't mean shit unless you do something with it. But that is the beautiful thing man, everything is pointless so why care so bad? Why limit yourself? Do whatever the fuck you want man, life is pointless anyway, one day you will be gone and then one day everyone who ever known or have known about your existence will be gone. All is pointless. So do what you want, why care? Go forward man.

The best time to do something was yesterday, the second best time to do something is today.

A lot of people in this thread are telling you "don't worry about it/life is meaningless anyways/if you're enjoying your time it's not wasted". And they all have a point, but you should evaluate what matters more to you - enjoyment in the moment now, or enjoyment in the long-term sense.

Some people are happy breezing through life, doing the minimum required to live, enjoying themselves moment to moment with no major goals. Others are only happy when they feel they're fulfilling some greater purpose, or pursuing long-term goals and careers. Both are fine, just figure out which you are and do what will bring you peace. You have a lot of time left for that, and it might even change as you get older. Good luck on the journey of life, anon.

OP here, this may be the final update before this thread 404s. I didn't expect for this to stay up for over half a year, but here we are.

Some of you would be happy to know that I qualified for the Pell Grant and my school is paid for. I'm attending a community college next month and going for an IT degree. I wanted to say I wouldn't have done with without all the support and advice you guys gave me.

Who knows, maybe in two years I'll be posting about finishing up school and having a thread to celebrate my 25th.

Thanks a lot you guys <3

How I learned to be happy.

1. Quit porn/masturbation
That made me awake, less social akwardness

2. Exercise
3. Moved
Literally dropped my entire life and moved to a different country. Everything is more interesting, everyone is more interested in you. You also immediately learn what your bad traits are. If you are having the same problems you had back home in a completely different place, you can clearly see what you are doing wrong and what you need to change.

4. Learned a new language
Be an immigrant, learn the language so you can fit in.

5. Impregnated my woman
Humans exist for this one purpose. This generation is fill with man children. Not their fault, we are babied our whole lives. But life has no meaning until there is something you'd sacrifice everything for. I have 3 kids and when I get my money, I'm going to marry some 20 something and get her to make as many kids as possible. We all exist because everyone had 5+ kids minimum throughout all of history. More humans means a better life for everyone believe it or not. It's your duty.

6. Got good at something
Hate life? Feeling sad? Things not fair? That's reality. Luckily for humans, it's also a fun game we can play. Exactly like an RPG. Decide what you want and level up your skills to get it. Or you can continue to be miserable taking the path of least resistance. If your goal is to be Chris Hemsworth you're probably gonna fail but why not give is a try anyway. I mean, you could get to 8% body fat, get really toned, be an extra or youtuber or something. That would deff get you friends and girls. Just setting the goal and making steps toward it is what happiness is. So put down the controller and your dick. It's gonna be hard but everyday you make progress you become more attractive, intelligent, and more of a contributor to society.

the driving around the us already sounds cool af, if you have a little money, save up to go to europe or any interesting place in the world and do workaway, its literally a cheatcode for the most amazing time you will have, its a website where hosts and travellers can register, you apply to stay at their place and in return you help with whatever work they need. You also get food from them for free. This way you can really deep dive into any culture and meet people. You will also have boring hosts, with annoying work, but you just gotta have the courage to leave and find a new place if you dont like it. Doing this was the most worry free time of my life. You get up, do some work, explore the surrounding area, eat dinner, go to sleep. No appointments, no exams, no payments. And once you experienced a place enough you simply go somewhere else. Honestly this is to everyone, if your life feels boring or you feel like you missed out, do workaway in an interesting country.

Hi, 23 years old male here.
Do not worry my dude you just need to do some cleaning in your circles : friends, family, colleagues. Another one : When you hang around thoses circles : act natural, speak when you feel the way to speak and keep it quiet when you do not feel to speak.
It's not guaranteed to make yourself ask the real questions and make you see the rights paths for you... but I think you should give it a try.
If you think you' are not a fun person, try being fun with just one person at the time, then another and then another... Once these peeps are found : group them and.... tadaa! you got yourself your close friends who enjoy being around you! ( Be aware : not everyone is compatible, sadly true)

Also : get your ass in the gym.

We have plenty of time in front of us.
Older people seem to really enjoy making fun of our 20's since all they can remember about their 20's is the great stuff they enjoyed doing.
We, on the other hand, are living our 20's right now with plenty of failures and (maybe less) successes.

recently turned 27. You feeling like you haven't done much in life also stems from a lack of effort. Don't want to play the "suck it up" card, because you are completely free in not feeling satisfied and wanting to vent that, but I myself have had this throughout my twenties and have found out that things happen slowly if you put in the effort. Just the act of being occupied with something you care about is enough to cancel out feelings of inadequacy, because regardless if it produces any sort of result it still gives you the satisfaction of having done something you feel like you should do. That is all. It is hard not to measure yourself to the person you (maybe desperately) want to be, but if you work consistently you will get there, no matter how long it takes. Godspeed.

>I try to more and more. At 21 I quit my job and drove around the country (America) without telling anyone where I was. Did that for a year, met some really nice people, and some not so nice ones. Sucks that I see people I graduated with in 2017 actually doing something with their lives, ya know?
You're literally me anon. I crossed the country four times and lived out of my car. It got stolen and I ended up in a homeless shelter and got a job before a guy tried to kill me and I ended up moving back in with my parents. Spent the last year or so recovering.
I'm the same exact age as you, I did the same exact thing when I was 21, we might have crossed paths and not even known it.

25 going on 26, things have gotten better for me, i have a job that i think im going to stay with for a long time. I have something to do which gives structure to my life and that helps me be better. There are things I need to do, things I want to do - mainly desire for more friends, and a partner. I'm doing pretty good, but those few things I haven't got make me feel bad about the whole thing when i really shouldn't feel that way - I gotta appreciate what I got, how good things really are

I have finished university, I've got a job, but isn't the job I want

I have a good group of mates but lack any form of relationship currently

I beat myself up sometimes because I'm feeling stagnant and unsatisfied

Recently I've been making an effort to sort out things that need doing, housework, applications etc and it's slowly bringing me into a new part of my life

I think once I get myself out of this rut and rediscover some of my passion, it will make it a lot easier to find a partner that I want to build a family with

Im in my 30s and I've learnt to enjoy not doing much with my life so much that I found a wife who enjoys the same. We raise a lovely kid, go on trips with my parents camper van and play fortnite together. I also play WoW classic, rl tennis at local club and sometimes go fishing.
Life is good. Simple. Allow mediocrity to be good enough.
