I think it is actually perfectly normal to feel lost and having no direction in life when you haven't really tried jobs out.
For a starter, you could try to find jobs that is in your field of study. If you do not have any interest in what you study, you can try out jobs you think you might have interest in. You have to start from somewhere.
For now, you can start looking for jobs while you are not working instead of just playing computer games. Try looking for a permanent job if not, a contract one.
You must be really miserable and have nobody to talk to thus resort to this platform to vent your frustrations.
You tried looking for jobs but failed and that must have demoralised you. Thus you turned to playing computer games to hopefully get some comfort out of it while you grieve in your current situation.
Sometimes life is like that. You are stuck and you just need someone or something to pull you up.
Dun lock yourself up at home. Go WDA to see if they can help u find a job.
Can I still apply for DPA even if I'm still consider to join Lasalle Art College?
Find a full time job and choose a sport that you like too.
Im sure you have something that interests you, a hobbie or pastime?
I'm new here. If u don't mind, I would like to share a part of misery that happened in my life from Jan to May 2015.
2 months back, I’ve known this guy. I don’t feel like going into details on how we met and how the meet up was. Lemme just get straight into the point. It all started where I liked him based on empathy. He told me he had a son, not yet married. He is 1994, had a son with his ex-gf. I was shocked in the first place, but I keep calm. I remembered he even told me he was once a head of gangster. His face looks innocent to me and he even told me he wanted a changed in his life. Thats when I end up with him in a relationship. Thinking that I could give him motivation to change for better. But I’m wronged all this while. I was blinded by his bullshits and “world” stories in his life. I admit I was stupid & foolish that I have stayed by his side for all this 5 months. He kept saying I’m such a waste of time and all. Even when we are out for “dates”, we pay our own separate bills of foods & drinks. I had once confronted him asking if he treat his previous gf like this, he said yes. I’m like wow okay. I tried breaking up with him countless times cause I can’t stand his behavior. But always end up patching back because he knows to console me well. Unfortunately, things didn’t went well on 14 May 2015. I found out that he were contacting other girls even when we were in relationship. Still contacting his ex whom he had son with saying just for the sake of his son. When I confront his ex, she doesn’t even know that our relationship existed. All I want to say here is, beware of this guy who going around playing with girls’s hearts. I am not here trying to get him back to me, never at all. I just don’t want other girls to be in the same place as me. Nevertheless, I would like say thank you to him, a guy whom initial name starts with A. Thank you for making a fool out of me for 5 months long, u did a great job in that ðŸ‘�ðŸ‘� Thank you for your effort and time wasted on me. Thank you for your “good deeds” towards me. Thank you for “loving me” and “cared” for me. To end this, please stop finding for me. Stop calling from different numbers you get through your workplace. Stop asking your mum or sister or your ex to even contact me. Don’t do any extra account on twitter just to contact me. Just focus on your current gf or gfs? Well I don’t know but yea I know you’re not single now. To his current gf, please be extra careful whomever you are. Well if his love for you is true then lucky you, but please tell him to stop looking for me. Details for the guy: he is a malay guy living in the Lion City, had a son with his ex-gf and is a 1994 human being. May you still stay as “world” as you areðŸ‘�

I’m a local guy in my late 20s, currently working as part time for only 2 – 3 days per week. During the time when I’m not working, I stayed at home and play computer games. Has been in this lifestyle for a couple of months now. Tried looking for a full time job but doesn’t know what to work and can’t find any job I wanted. Don’t really know what to do in life. My life has no direction. Anybody has the worst situation as mine?
Still living wid parents?Have some spare cash?
If not, situation will auto force you to find money.
*@ certain point in life, one may also no direction, wanted to give up & run away, but life still have to gets on, one still need to eat..or other expenses; depending on the stages in life.
Keep on apply for jobs, got what job can earn $ jus go...
Take a year off, re evaluate your life. Get into new things - always wanted to read that book? Pick it up. Had an interest in playing the guitar but never got around to doing it? Sign up for lessons now. Do the things you've always wanted to do, and who knows, you might find something new along the way. You sound very lost, and I'd know that because I was there once. Maybe I still am. Still, I find that time off or a breather once in a while is enough to clear my head and put me in a better place. I hope everything works out for you.
Unless gaming is what u wanna do fulltime now, i suggest u ditch that momentarily.
u need to find sth in ur area of interest(jobwise i think too late le. Go find a hobby)
and then find a job to fund ur interest.
imo money doesnt matter when u doing whatcha like, unless money is what u want;)
for me im just on the verge of failing my Os cuz i slack off for 4 years
Honestly I think it may have to do with your personality. Do you consider yourself an introvert? Most people that I know who play computer games or at least, seek comfort behind the pcs are.
There is nothing wrong with that kind of lifestyle though, I'm an anti-social freak myself haha.
Try to find something your interested in, then try to find a job with a similar interest. If your loney you can always try to find ways to make friends like going clubbing, joining some events...etc. if your more of an introvert maybe you can have a habbit of going to the library and reading books or even do some one-man sports if your interested like swimming and cycling? I'm an introvert and I like cycling. It keeps me from feeling bored and I feel relaxed and peaceful when I cycle.
Hi Rock_Sugar, perhaps you should start sitting down with yourself, writing down what you want in life.
doesnt mean you are better if there is someone worse than you.
you live to answer to yourself. so buck up and find something that motivates you. maybe you start with some social activities, no need to find the perfect job immediately. which, just to let you know, may not exist. there is no perfect job, but you should aim for a job that gives you satisfaction.
If you don't know what to do in life, at least you have an idea what your interests is?
Maybe you can try studying and working part time to upgrade yourself.
Start with something simple first and something you might enjoy doing. Not doing anything at all won't help.
Find what you like to do as your career, its okay to be lost, but do not stop moving forward.
I would say if you can't get a full time job at this moment, try to go to school, build up skills that can qualify you for a full-time job. Playing video games won't get you anywhere career wise or personal life unless you can play it professionally, but I guess you are not in any competitional video game team, so it's better quit it.
I suggest try anything really. You will be surprise what you would enjoy doing and being out there trying even the smallest thing, you will meet interesting people who can help you out or even make life a little more enjoyable.
Haha I'm younger than you, so idk if this helps lah...
Get back in school, go PI or something if you no degree lorh. If not, take a year off, travel the world, or find a hobby. In the process lucky can find smth u good at. Hope this helps!
Motivate yourself by finding something you are or were interested in! Must take action, if not things will never happen... All the best!
