>The world is shit. People are shit. Women are shit. Men are shit. It all sucks, you're not missing out. Real people suck, they're shallow, boring, vain, irrational, and not as likable as 2D people.
Guys, normally I'd agree with these posts but I just watched all 26 episodes of Kaiji in a row and had an epiphany. You see, we all talk about being lonely, and how we want this or that, but how many of us are actually doing anything to fix our situations ourselves? I can't speak for everyone, but personally I haven't done shit. I wish I was more attractive, yet I eat shitty food and never exercise. I want to live a comfortable middle-class lifestyle, yet I never go to class. I want friends, yet I've alienated myself from everyone I used to know.
I threw away my high school year books a few weeks ago and it was rather disturbing. Freshman year I had tons of signatures, tons of people with nice things to say, and several phone numbers from people telling me to call them over summer. Sophomore year, there were less. Junior year, I didn't get a year book, but senior year, I didn't even bother getting it signed. What went wrong? At the time I couldn't see it, but now, looking back, my loneliness was entirely my own fault. I never made any effort to make or keep friends. I played basketball freshman year but when I went to try outs the next year I goofed up the first day of practice I didn't even bother returning the next day. Everything up until this point was entirely my own fault, I can't blame my parents, my old friends, other people for apparently being stupid, or below me. My problems are my own, just like all your problems are your own.
So shut up about it already, nobody gives a shit about your problems but you and your mother, and she can't fix them either.
