So if you were a NEET in your early/mid 20s, is life pretty much over for you?

No way if you were a NEET that you can ever be more than a wageslave at some paper-pushing job. At best working your way up a little after years of work, but not by much. Really, how would an ex-NEET ever be more than that? I'm trying to imagine it but I don't see an answer.

Lol, I'm in an even more hilarious position. I was a semi-NEET, as in I chose a path that would allow me to NEET 90% of the time: "meme" social science degrees. Spent 7 years in uni (2 more than I had to cause I dropped out once cause of depression and a few other reasons and had to start over). So now with my entirely useless degrees in a shithole country where such things are worth less than toilet paper, not only am I now both basically unskilled labor (like a NEET) BUT ALSO I'm so tired of uni that I won't ever, ever set foot in a university again, no way no how, I just won't do it. A normal NEET may still have the energy/motivation to get a degree, but I'm so fucking done I'd rather connect my balls to a car battery than do that. I'd gladly teach myself some skill, hell I'd be willing to dedicate many hours a day learning something useful, but without a degree in it no one gives a shit and you won't make any money. Can't even learn some trade or something in this country, would make less than pushing papers with the few shithole dead-end jobs these meme degrees could land me.

I'm looking for vocational training this year, but I fear that god damned resume gap will fuck everything up. Doesn't help that I only found 3 courses to register for among 108. Now I gotta wait for the companies to contact me on whether or not there are vacancies. I dread studying again.

Thanks for reading my blog.

Please change that mate, you still have a tiny bit of time. Get a stem degree, force yourself to suppress the depression, lack of energy, motivation etc... Get a stem degree or you will end up like me mate. You don't want to be me, I'm a complete failure and it's all my own fault, and it will only get worse with age. Your depression right now seems as bad as it can get but with age it just gets worse if you don't put effort into your life.

I'm probably not ready for uni so I need 2 years of community college then transfer to uni to get a stem degree, then I can finally leave this country.

20-30 period is how you want to set up your adult life till death.

This is your prime physically and mentally. It's the time to cardiomaxx, musclemaxx,careermaxx.
Also it's the formative worldview decade, people rarely change their way of thinking after 30.

being incel makes me feel i have nothing to look forward to in my future. even if i get promoted at my job in my 20s i still feel it will be for nothing, as money will do nothing to help me with my loneliness.

How do you pay for it mate? Sounds like heaven.

Hope you make it mate, good luck.

That is true but it scares me deeply, really sobering sentences there mate.

Yeah I was depressed since 13, tbh I was done since that age, mentally a vegetable with no energy or motivation, anxious and apathetic and anhedonic.

Being an incel with money has to be better than being an incel without money. If you can, studymax, STEMmax, savemax, etc.

NEETs can turn themselves around, but it's very hard/requires connections to get you past the whole "why haven't you seemed out employment in the past 10 years :feelsseriously: " thing when you try and get a job. Ideal you never go NEET until you reach a financial status that allows you to stop working (Retire.)

I really do wish you weren't born in the 'shit-hole' country as you put it. Some times even when your ambitious/work hard many other things shackle you down to an upper limit of success.
