    I don't want a career,
    don't want to wake up early in the mornings,
    don't want to impress people on LinkedIn,
    don't care If I live on benefits in a council house,
    don't care If I have to rely on a foodbank,
    I get my clothes from Oxfam.

    I am just lazy and depressed and I am fine with this. It's just what I am.

    What's wrong with this ? Nothing is. We shouldn't give in to peer pressure.

    doesn't bother me

    get cheap stuff off ebay, old games consoles, basic diet of eggs, milk, potatoes, do a bit of gardening

    So what if you are a benefits scrounger ? That's just a meaningless insult

    You are depressed, your judgement is clouded. That is not okay at all.

    No, you aren’t happy and you know it. As I said, depression is clouding your judgement. Also:

    I think what I meant was I would be depressed if I had to work and wake up early in the mornings and slave away at a job.

    And you can live on benefits, just tell them you find it difficult finding work, and need some support.

    There are certain pleasures in conformity that make life easier. You can still be an individual while conforming to some things

    they would probably insist on you getting one and offer aid in order for you to do so , i doubt they would just hand out money to you because you find something difficult.

    but I do conform.

    I don't break the law, I don't attack people, I treat people well, I help people if they need it, I like to take care of myself and surroundings,

    you have obviously never claimed benefits.

    They do just give you money every week if you provide evidence you looked for work.

    yeh you're right i don't live on benefits because i wanna get a job so i can earn money to buy my things rather than relying on other peoples tax money (partially)

    your choice man , do what you want , even if it results to you scourging money from others and being looked down upon because ur just lazy

    honestly, no.

    Apart from the obvious, like winning the lottery, travel the world, etc

    but I have no aspirations within our current society.

    Sure, but I meant in terms of societal expectations of what the 'good life' is. Sometimes societal expectations are total BS and sometimes they've got something to them. Work a job for a bit, save some money, and then travel until you find something that warms your heart and gets you going. Best of luck.
