    If you are so internally empty that you can only entertain yourself through working and videogames, it is indeed over (it never began).

    A genuinely fun book can break you out of it but it must also be paired with realizing that games are busybody simulators. If you don't then games will still win out at the end of the day. I still enjoy playing a game here and there though.

    Best of luck getting out of that, you should and find something worthwhile to do. Why not pick up a novel and make yourself read it every day?

      i've read every houellebecq, you can imagine how much that helped. i sometimes read scifi slop or light pulp fiction like the turner diaries. i'll read a history book once or twice a year. all in all reading hasn't been capable of filling the endless days. hence the request.

        Understandable. Why not try historical fiction or, if you're up to it, some philosophy to find direction in life? I don't really know what you are interested in so I cannot suggest anything in particular

        Read how to live by derek sivers. It gives you like 28 contradictory suggestions on how to live. Might be just the thing to break you out.

          >i've read every houellebecq
          read him again
          read his influences
          read them again
          read their influences and those they influenced
          read barnes and noble front shelf slop, skim through it and ponder why they're slop
          read NYT bestsellers and ponder why they're slop

          I'm like OP but I actually have hobbies and know how to fix depression (it's literally just sleep) and yet I still don't do it. I'm the biggest moronic Black person alive.

          9-10 hours a night here, it does nothing for me, i wouldn't even say i'm biochemically depressed just the situational depression of a monkey in a cage.

          Whenever I'm feeling this way, I always go back to Stoner by John Williams, it helps me. Honestly though anon it sounds like you're quite lonely and need some purpose. Do you have a gf or are you looking for one? Is your career fulfilling or is it time to go back to school? Maybe your country is a shithole and it's time to move. Do an honest assessment.

          i have a good job, i have little oversight and get to tell people what to do, many people waste their lives in this sort of job and then die a year after retiring because they no longer have anything to live for. other than that my life is perfectly empty. i've been avoiding stoner tbh but i'll read it, thanks

    honestly if youre stuck in a rut like that just fricking pick something DO IT , anything, get a job, go for walks,take yoga class or some activity, just do literally anything to keep you active and grounded in the world so that you dont end up a literal schizo like me from the mental and physical isolation

    Read what you actually want to read and not what others suggest you should read.

    The only thing that can break you out of that is to quit your job without any care for the consequence. But you wont. Thats why they call it a trap. They are feeding on your cowardice. You will die here.

    Get a cruise ticket or something, go on a little trip. Otherwise embrace the mundane. All these single men with no family but they don’t even take advantage of it, go do something. Who cares what.

    Try drugs. Mushrooms have given me something to look forward to on the weekend.
