    honestly, no.

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

    but I have no aspirations within our current society.
    Well, then you do you. I personally want to be somebody in this world, rather than do nothing all day and live on benefits.

    The only problem I have with that is that you're a benefits scrounger.
    you can slave away at your job and pretend to be happy if you want

    I believe we all have to contribute to society even if you find working pointless or depressing however other people work to contribute and pay for themselves. While I believe you haven’t found your ideal career because you say the working environment is boring and finding the correct career for that might change your mind on society and working in general. I’m also the type of person who believes that someone can live how they want to however there are always a line. If they are responsible for a new born baby that must contribute and ensure the baby is healthy while this is related to society as your own lifestyle also effects other people and that may not seem like it however it does. People take drugs because others do. People become lazier because others do and use it as an excuse. Additionally, living a life contributing nothing just seems more depressing or boring because you have nothing to look back at and the lack of achievements you have earned. Lastly, you can do night shifts where instead of waking up early you can wake up later.

    I might have depression, I don't know

    Even if I did, so what ? Maybe some people need to go through a depressed period of a couple of months to improve their life.eventually. Like the depression is a phase of growth in life for them.

    Worrying about how others perceive me only makes things worse.

    You can help immigrants on the council estate with their shopping,
    there's thousands of people in Japan who you can connect with through video games,,
    at least I won't be alone

    unless you grow all your own food,
    sew all your own clothes,
    built your own house,

    you are also a scrounger.

    it's not nihilism

    Going through pain and hopelessness has to happen to make you stronger.

    It's like being tested. a test life throws at you.

    Useless apologist mentality. This is plain nihilism, not depression etc.

    I do have moments of happiness. I do enjoy a happy life.

    These are just my opinions of society.

    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.
    You aren't going to be able to buy nice things, like holidays, cars, jewellry and nice food. You'll have no money for fun things like going out, sports and other hobbies. I'm not just saying this because of peer pressure, it is genuinely nice to be able to go abroad and see the world. It's nice to treat yourself with that expensive ring, or that flash car

    If you are genuinely depressed please seek the appropriate mental health services because depression will steal your enjoyment. It's the only illness that lies to you and this is why it's dangerous

    If you try to better yourself, people call you selfish and materialistic and narcissistic and ungrateful.

    If you do nothing with your life, you are called a scrounger.

    You can't win.

    Then either you can continue to let other people decide who you are as a person, or you can just think "screw what other people think, I'm my own person" and do what you want

    You are 100% correct. Many people here have clouded judgement and will not be able to understand you. Just stay true to yourself.

    It's all about the balance between work and the probability of a range of rewards. If that reward is unlikely to happen, or if half your reward is taken from you, you might not believe it's worth the effort.

    You can most definitely have a decent life with very little money. A diet of potato, beans, vegetables and fruit is actually a better diet than people had only a thousand years ago. People are just so absorbed in other people's lives that they constantly compare themselves and think they have to have better than what everyone else has.

    If you're so concerned about what other people think, then you should seriously consider therapy.

    At the end of the day, what's better, having a nice house, a car, a family, a dog etc. and being called selfish, or doing jack **** with your life and being called a scrounger.

    hmm...tough choice that xo

    Not every job has to be slaved away at OP.
    Find something you enjoy rather than be lazy and rely on handouts from taxes. Some people just can't work but you are just a lazy sh*t.

    why should I work 18 hours a day , 7 days a week for little or no reward ?

    Look at the workers in Japan and South Korea where depression is suicide is the highest in the world and many young people live in internet cafes.

    So othes have to work and pay taxes while you sit at home with handouts? That's a very poor attitude to have.

    Why is doing nothing considered the worst thing ever, even worse than committing serious crime ?

    I am not living off your tax money, that's an absurd argument.
