Do you guys see yourself in the context of society and decide, ultimately, that you are the one to blame for your problems?

Isn't it a matter of confidence?

If you are confident, then when there is a conflict between your mind and the world around you, you are brave enough to challenge society with the sword-tip of your personality. Political revolutionaries do this, as (I imagine) do artists who break totally new ground in their art forms.

If you lack confidence, then you internalise your problems. It's my fault that I don't conform. Why can't I just copy what successful people do? No wonder I feel bad.

In many cases, there might not be a clear answer whether your problems are your fault or not. The answer you come to will depend on your outlook.

Not saying that you can change your outlook at will, though - that's just a self-help fiction. But consider that you are only defined when there is a world around you which you can be defined in opposition to. There is no self which 'has problems' in isolation from a society, simply because there is no self without a surrounding society in the first place. (Even hermits grow up among other people.)

I definitely don't believe in fate, or anything like that. We are definitely responsible for navigating our lives and making decisions we think will lead to good outcomes. I don't think this means that "anyone can become rich if they work hard!", that we are immune from our environment, or that people should live wondering if "had I done this differently, would my life be better?" It just means that, in the scope of the decisions we can make, a lot can change and happen within those bounds.

Some of us are disadvantaged. I definitely am. I'm about to become an adult, and the prospect of suddenly being dropped into a vast well of "hey you have to make all of these decisions now and they actually have tangible impact on your livelihood" is *absolutely* scary. But I don't want to be paralyzed by this! I just want to do my best. I agree with most of the sentiments in this thread. Everybody just has to do what we can, and hopefully that will lead all of us toward enjoying the good in life.

This sushi has a point. There's a chain of causality for "problems" but you can't follow it to the origin. It's like throwing a handful of pebbles in a pool of water. Which single pebble caused the ripples?

But I'd like to add that the only control we have are our own subsystems, so it's best we focus on the things we can change there instead of trying to shift blame elsewhere.

>>11305
This is the conclusion I've also come to like many of the sushis in this thread. For your own sake, it's not practical to give up responsibility for your problems even if you believe society is the root cause. At the end of the day you're going to have to solve your problems, so it's best you take responsibility for them regardless.

You could challenge society if you don't like the problems dealt to you like >>11350 said. But even then you would still need to take responsibility for yourself to make that difference.


So to finally answer the question. Yes, I am ultimately the one to blame for my own problems.

Oh I think I never posted my pov on this.
I think our haracter has a nature of it's own, and while we might be responsible for our own well-being, both mental and physical, I do think we cannot behave as our cultural heroes would tell us we should. I believe more in the taoist ideal of going with the flow rather than try to fit a mould to reach someone else's goal.

Hello

I am looking for my Canadian friend. He went offline almost exactly this time 3 years ago.

His name is 0x39. Other names he went by were Nick and turbotard and 疑惑 and lots of other kanji names that I can't remember.
He was very nice to me and was aspiring to be tea otaku. He sometimes posted on Lainchan a long time ago (maybe 5+ years ago?). He was studying computer science back in 2018. One time he went to a maid cafe in Japan (he said it was terrible).

Do you know my friend? How can I reach him?
I just want to find my friend again. I miss him very much. Please let me know if you know him, my email is in the email field!

The next bit is for 0x39 if he's reading this. It's top sekrit private!! So please don't open spoiler unless you're the real 0x39!!!!
Hi, I know I'm doxing you a bit, I'm really sorry. I'm just trying to find you, but I know maybe you don't want to be found. I'm so sorry for intruding. You disappeared at the end of April 2018, I never got to be a better friend to you. We only talked for a little bit. I knew you were going soon, you said you were troubled by things. I wanted so much to hold onto you tighter, but I didn't want to smother you. You slipped away. You said you might make a new steam profile one day, but I don't think that day has come yet. You were a nice person and I wished I could've helped you more when you needed a friend the most. But I got there too late. It was already time for you to go. It's always like that for me: late to every party. I remember, I told you that you should always try to say a proper goodbye to your friends, just so they know for sure. And the last thing you gave to me was just a little "so…bye I guess". I always felt that it didn't count, not when you'd left so much unfinished, friend.

Remindes me about the time I had 3 online friends.
I miss them a lot… Even worse is that it ended because my mental health went downhill.
Never had any online friends since then and also never felt at home somewhere on the Internet too since that happened.

The transition from being in school with the same people all day every day to being an adult and not having any IRL social interaction unless I seek it out gave me some serious whiplash. I also do most of my work alone or with minimal human contact so even if I was into workplace fraternization like some folks are that wouldn't work either. The idea of actively going and seek out friends through hobbies and gatherings and things still feels kind of alien, though it might have to do with being more used to talking to people sushi rollymously online, where through sheer numbers there're always compartmentalized swarms to interact with, whether or not that kind of thing is conducive to forming lasting friendships.

I wonder if you guys know that friends shape you. It can be like being in a relationship, and choosing the wrong partner can be hell.

I'm just pointing this out because I used to feel like this and then I realized, after trying to befriend people, that the majority of people aren't worth the time.

 No.11165

>>11162
Furthermore, many are concerned more about how well the relationship is, what the relationship is, where the relationship is, where they each are, how each are, how many relationships one has, how alone but plenty their contacts are, how many people value you, how to make these people value you more, why don't I click as we-

But never is there a question on where you are going, why you need to be friends, what is bad about being alone, what interests me.

Most people aren't worth the time. Often they'll depress you.
I will concede that having a group that encourages each other and creates an interesting world together is valuable, but unlikely to find by posting your contact on some forum or sending status updates through IM.

Yesterday was my birthday and girl I wanted to ask to prom texted me that she will show up at my school.
Fortunate event. Got haircut and shaved myself, think I am good looking when I am fresh - you guys
even complimented me on face thread. I met her, few words exchanged and I asked her on spot. She said
no, because she had exams on her university, but I felt like she was going to say yes at first. Mind you, this was
the prettiest girl I know and I felt really confident talking so casually to her, knowing that everyone
was prolly looking at us. Later I heard that few guys had same problem, their girls just had to study for colloquiums.

Regardless, I felt really confident after that talk. I just wish I could have been always like that.

Hello frens.
I want to add a new imageboard to my repertoire. Why should I stay on this board instead of the dozens and dozens of other semi-dead boards out there? I am not even really sure if imageboards are worth it at all right now, since all of them seem to be dying.
Sincerely

I don't like the insinuaiton that an imageboard must have instantaneous responses to every post and threads that die within a week in order to be "alive."

Sushichan is culturally richer than diet twitters like 4chan or reddit, it's fun to post here, and you don't have to dedicate more than 30 minutes every couple of days which means you can spend the rest of your day doing something productive or enjoyable instead of having the entire day expended interacting in a rage-inducing skinner box of misery and negativity like you would on 4chan, reddit, twitter, or any other "alive" forum. The slow pace is lax, its comfy - that's why you should consider the so-called "semi-dead" boards over the "living" ones. It's better for your soul.

If you don't like the slow pace and friendly atmosphere though, then you should consider sticking to a faster one like the aforementioned.

>Lainchan is all about politics where it used to be about hackerstuff so I just go in and shitpost these days.
That's not completely true. There's some politics on delta and the more humanities focused boards but it's not flame-war tier. I only really post on lambda though so take my take with a grain of kosher salt.

Political discussions might be inevitable online given the all-or-nothing political culture that America has propoagated online. In spite of that however: if you disregard the need to be polarized and always disagree on every issue (to be red-or-blue without any purple), try to understand the opposition as though they were your own opinions, to not treat every political dillemma like a moral one, to support your claims, to argue with intellectual honesty, to not spill the soykaf and to be nice to each other, then political discussions online are actually very decent and informative. /pol/ should not be the model of what online political discussions look like. Please don't shitpost on lainchan sushi roll, that ruins board quality (you shouldn't do it here either for that matter). Please keep shitposting on boards like 4shit, thank you very much.

I've see a post like this on every slow board I use.

"Lurk moar" is a staple of IB+TB culture which is only honoured in the breach. It undestandable that the expectation for lurking is diminished: big sites run on cycles of memes that repackage their archetypal ideas/behavior into novel forms. If participation is shallow enough that you only need to memorize a few memes and how they evolve[1], frankly one doesn't need to lurk at all. Such sites encourage "participation is growth" mentalities.

I wish there was a better guide that helped people transition to the slow internet. Lurking especially. From "How long should I lurk to acquire board culture?" to "What should I pay attention to while lurking?", I've never seen a good (general) guide to netiquette on slow boards. Not that anybody CAN really regulate new rolls/sushi rolls. It feels as though we've just kind of resigned ourselves to Eternal September 2.0

As an update to the majo no tabitabi thread in /otaku/ (since I don't want to derail that thread anymore), I figured out what the problem was. I'd been putting the subtitle and scale filters as two separate -vf options instead of a single list of filters, which was causing the scale filter to override the subtitles.

At this point I think I'm fed up with my school constantly asking about their students' dreams in literally everything. Weekly assignments, essays, papers, exams… since I have to lie on every single one of it.
I don't have any particular dreams, I don't even bother to. I'm just living according to where life takes me. I have goals, but not necessarily a dream, and those goals are selfish as fuck (buying a PC that's good enough to play modern games, saving up money to pay for both bills and hobbies).
It's ticking me off in the wrong way about their optimism that their students have dreams. I'm sorry, mine is crushed a long time ago, so can you stop giving your students assignments like that for, you know, a day? 'Cause it's starting to get old to repeat the same lie just to get high score credits… I enrolled to a university damn it, not some sort of motivational seminar!

Quick question are your first to second year of college? A lot of colleges do stuff like this to be a pseud filter. Kids who don't know what they want to be when they grow up and choose a degree randomly or people with no passion, but a love of money tend to be trouble for colleges. Those stupid essays are a way to nip that idea at the bud and prevent them from wasting 4 years on a degree that makes them go "I hate this".

I have the same problem too. I don't see my degree as something I should be passionate about, but as a means to an end for money. I'd be ok doing any degree if it made me money and left me enough free time for my hobbies. I've long ago accepted I'd rather daydream about what I hope in life than getting it, so I have no real dream I want to achieve. Like you I just lie when they ask the question

A bit different, but I can't take "how would you survive X", "live in x time period", or live in the wild type questions. I'm diabetic so the answer always devolves to "I would have no insulin if I were at X. I die in a week". You can't stretch that answer out into 3 paragraphs so I just forget I have diabetes and make shit up.
