I started working from home 6 months ago. I’ve watched each day as my do-nothing fiance does nothing. She plays the same video game all day every day. Meanwhile, every time that I get back to my work I feel a growing resentment.
Like right now… I’m just starting work for the day and for the last 2 hours my soundscape is guild chatter about crafting. I don’t even get time for a conversation in the mornings before she instantly jumps on to the game to spend all that social energy on other people.
I want her to find a purpose in life that doesn’t involve wasting her time on this game. She struggles with feeling ‘useless’, yet does absolutely nothing to change her circumstance. I became angry about this and called her a potato. She has never been so offended, but remains doing nothing.
