Don't listen to these cunts.

The US government doesn't give a shit about employing its citizens.

Programming is a real job. Just put yourself out there. Lose weight. Get healthy. Write a portfolio.

You'll get a job and just stick with it.

If your parents don't support you or help you, they aren't good parents. Have them read this thread.

Life isn't about making money or being famous. It's just about being true to yourself.

Understand that you can do fucking anything if you just change your beliefs.

You are still young and you are still capable of doing great things.

There's always someone worse off than you. Understand this and run with it.

Yeah"being true to yourself" is great, I'm sure no one disagrees. But "be true to yourself" when youre paying the bills and not your near elderly, exhausted parents.

Stop making excuses. Never have children if you don't have the finances to take care of them for the rest of their life. If you have children just to exploit them for your own selfish pleasure/slavery and you are just continuing human suffering.

Everything has consequences. Never blame the offspring for your irresponsibility. The pleasure of impregnating a woman and continuing your lineage and the notion that child might become a millionaire is foolish thinking that only a pathetic homo sapien could conjure up.

There are people on twitch that play pokemon and 20 year old games and make 100k a year.

There are people on youtube that upload videos of themselves harassing people in public and make 100k a year.

There are people that create 1 google extension and make millions of dollars.

You're removing value from human beings that don't produce anything. That is inhumane and your ancestors will look at you in disgust for denigrating people for their lack of success.

In the future, automation will take over ALL jobs. What then? What are people going to do in their spare time? Shit post about how robots have their jobs? No, they are going to just enjoy existing and find a hobby. People don't have to work in order to be fulfilled.

Please understand this.

I'm sick of having to put up with this ignorant shit. Don't have kids if you wastefully spend it all on garbage instead of sustaining another human life regardless of their disabilities or circumstances.

Ohhh yeah you're so tired of your parents cooking your food, buying everything and doing eveeything for you while you play videogames or post on Veeky Forums.

Man you really got it bad, my prayers are with you. I hope your parents provide everythimh for you and then shut the fuck up like good little cucks and stop telling you to get a job. That's just cruel

Your parents are clearly the reason you're a neet and a virgin, am I right?

Their fuckup was that at 18 years old they didn't say "Get a fulltime job, go to college or get the fuck out of our house". That was their biggest fuckup

Why don't you call millionaires that do nothing all day but masturbate in swimming pools NEETS?

Oh that's right, because somehow a millionaire is more valuable than an enlightened shitposter on the internet. Kill yourself.

Who says your parents have to do anything for you? You don't have to eat a buffet everyday to survive you dumb cunt.

my prayers are with you

When are you going to grow up and stop following the religion meme? Does it get you virgin pussy?

Your parents are clearly the reason you're a neet and a virgin, am I right?

Yes, especially if they don't help you and you had a rough childhood in poverty. Getting out of it is extremely difficult and embarrassing.

My parents didn't have me until they were 28-29 and didn't have a house until then. They are immigrants and have shitty jobs. It's their fault for having a kid and being addicts and wastefully spending their money instead of investing in their kids. A lot of parents have this mentality, "I SHOULD BUY HIM GAMES AND IPAD, THAT WILL MAKE HIM LIKE STEVE JOBS." It doesn't work like that. Escapism doesn't work. Immigrants don't assimilate well and most certainly don't raise their kids like normal fucking kids (me). This is the reason why most of us are here. We ran into very strange upbringing that led us to be needs.

Unlike you all, I'm only 22-23 and I've had a job before. I'm not a worthless 30 year old that has never graduated high school.

Just keep your head up. Experience new things and gain confidence in yourselves, even if it means experiencing it through a youtube vlogger.

I'm 25 too and at some point you learn that parents are people too, and they DON'T know whats best for you because they AREN'T you.

Everyone has to move on, and the first step is moving out. Some people move out at 18 or 19, and by 25 have learned to be self supporting. You will be happier when your parents make none of your decisions for you.

Drugs and girls are seriously overrated. Until you are financially ready to settle down, don't waste money dating. Most girls are fine with taking advantage men who want to buy things for them.

Even if you made more money and had a bigger house than your parents theyd find ways to complain. Fuck em for real.

Teamtreehouse.com got me from customer service rep to full time front end web developer in ten months. Look into their Web Development track. There's a lot to learn though before you really can do anything worth charging for.

Learn, in this order, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, and Sass to get down the basics, then try building a site or two. Then, you should learn a Content Management System (CMS) like Wordpress, and probably some PHP. You'll also need to learn how to use basic Photoshop as the design comps you get will usually be in that format.

After you've made 5-6 sample sites, Put together a portfolio site and start applying. This industry really only cares about your skills so if you show them you know what you're doing they will hire you.

I am not a teacher, so I don't really know. You've already presumably attended public school once in your life, so you've been given the concepts before. Reminding yourself of how they work should be no more difficult than studying for the GRE.

And at that point, you can either attend college to learn Calculus and whatnot, or you can give it a try yourself.

what if I blame my parents for not teaching me to have AT LEAST some level of confidence and some ambitions, what if they didn't teach me the value of working (even when they are hard working people) and, most importantly, the value of EXPERIENCE?
what if they, instead of letting me be myself, a perfectionist guy that loves technical stuff, they taught me that "perfection doesn't exist" and that the things I did (and do) are "useless" (and calling me useless, too)?

I myself am almost 30 y.o., the son of a poor single mom. right now I'm a NEET because of some grave illness I had. I used to work summers when I was a kid, but I haven't worked in 4 years, and never worked while at uni (even when I tried finding jobs) because my very own mom said I shouldn't. before the illness, I was studying engineering at 2 of the best unis in some south american country, but failed hard because I didn't have anyone to ask for help when studying.

surely I'm to blame, but, how is my family NOT to blame, too?

hey guys, I already know how to program, but.. how the fuck do you sell your services? simply list them on craigslist or something? also, what if you don't feel confident in your knowledge (as in, you don't know how advanced your knowledge is, compared to other programmers)?

Yeah that's like 99% of parents.

You seem to have this idea that everyone else's parents were perfect and that yours just sucked and dragged you down. News flash: The opposite is true. The vast majority of parents aren't very good, your situation is not unique in any way.

My parents never taught me any of that shit either, and neither did the vast majority of people on Veeky Forums or people in general

because my very own mom said I shouldn't

You are well over 25 years old, why exactly are you still listening to your mother?

I really want to meet one of these "mamma's boys"
M-my mom said i shouldn't do that! It's not good!

Holy fuck how low is your testosterone?

but failed hard because I didn't have anyone to ask for help when studying

Did you have any classmates or were you taking classes alone?

surely I'm to blame, but, how is my family NOT to blame, too?

No, YOU are entirely to blame.

You can blame your family up to about 16-17 years old, hell 18 years old. At that point you're an adult who can move out, join the army, own guns, move to a different continent, open a stock trading account, rent out his boypussy, suck cocks for money, and much more.

most people in engineering school had parents that were professionals, mostly engineers, so they did have someone supporting them. my mom, OTOH, didn't even want to go to a "talk with parents" session (I guess they do it to tell them that eng school is not a joke, and that students actually DO need help from their parents) in eng school when she was invited.

I don't know what school you went to but I've almost never heard of that.

Taking your engineer example, all the engineering majors I've heard of/have known were either poorfags who worked extremely hard for 4.0 GPAs because they didn't want to end up like their financially illiterate and poor parents OR they were children of immigrants who didn't know a thing about the country they moved to besides working their ass off in a factory to get their kids to finish University.

Stop thinking your situation is so unique, take some responsibility. You're an adult, you do adult things. You can't control other adults, but you can control what you do. Your parents are one of those other adults.

Aren't there already a shitton of cheap competition from the entire world, from Europe to fucking India, especially on freelance sites?

Also aren't front end devs forced to learn all these hipster frameworks all the time? And what about burn-outs? I've heard from older coders (who also started to write code in school) that they can't stand programming anymore. Not just in web, but other devs too. Dudes are like 30 y.o. and they already HATE it. And they're fucked, because they haven't done anything else beside coding.
