Today the article is a little more serious, because I'm going to talk about how otaku culture affects its likes, that is, the way people react by turning into an addiction the act of reading manga, watching anime, among many other varieties.

Article based on the author's own experiences. Before reading, know that we are just saying that everything in excess is bad.

How does your way of thinking and acting change?

Certainly things change and even you, what I will say is my own experience and that of other people.

Right after I became an otaku, I felt really down, I would say I was becoming depressed, in a way I feel good that way, but the biggest problem was that I suddenly changed with other people, not that I care , but the side of wanting to keep up appearances hasn't changed, this certainly affects me, due to the fact of losing friendships and the distance from important people.

The world around you and around me changes. The way of looking at things changes. And that affected me because the world turned grey, I wanted to see the sad side of things, to create impossible possibilities and that the most beautiful side was exactly that.

The desire to socialize with other people disappears, and the only way to feel confidence is through the computer screen. And you realize that you are different from others, because you want to be different and because you have changed, maybe people become innocent or sensitive to your way of thinking, but it's just different opinions, right?

The will to live a forbidden romance also disappears, and then a new ideal or goal appears in your life, not to fall in love, that's simple. It is a distance, mainly because there are not so many people who share the same ideal as you.

The hardest part of it all is to live in a fantasy world, even if it is childish, something grows inside us and that is something that cannot be taken away, I would say that this world is the same world of other people's dreams, we only have bigger ambitions.
Being different is good, dreaming makes you better, but an empty world makes you empty inside.

How does it affect you in social life?

Addiction certainly brings a lot of problems, even if it doesn't make the slightest difference in otakus. One of the biggest problems is becoming a hikikomori or one NEET.
You can simply exclude yourself from society or not give news saying that you are alive, but this only affects you, because when this addiction ends or decreases, the only one who will be losing is you, your friends can exchange you for others and not everything. it will be as you want.

You will also be missing out on several opportunities, such as the job you always dreamed of, the chance to make new friends and have an affair with someone, or something that would change your life, exchanging experiences will make you see the world from another side, if you want, logical.

Bullying can also cause irreversible problems, but if you lock yourself in a room and watch anime, it can mean wasting your time, as there will be people somewhere who will accept you.

How to stop isolating yourself for some addiction?

  • Try going out with different people or people who have the same problem;
  • date;
  • Try to get a job and have a fixed income;
  • Go out for walks or something that interests you;
  • Look for articles online that can help you;
  • Make this addiction a hobby, not something harmful to you;
  • Try to make addiction something common, where you can share your time and do things you want to do;
  • Don't give up the addiction, just make it something you don't need in your life;
