Being self-sufficient, independent, and able to pull your own weight—these are all qualities that have been valued as much throughout history as they are in modern times. Sleeping late, failing to keep up with work, and playing video games all day, however, are not things a grown man should be proud of doing. If someone is over thirty and this is their life, obviously something needs to change. And fast!
Redditor u/Frequent_Gas6500 A couple shared Of Brutally honest posts with members of the r/TrueOffMyChest subreddit about his brother—aka the 31-year-old ‘Man-Baby.’ Despite raising 3 very successful children, OP’s parents, unfortunately, failed with 4. Or, as the story’s author put it: “They’ve allowed the man-child to sit in their cradle and make demands for over 31 years. And now, they find themselves with an over-old child who’s all over the place.” Din sits in the attic playing Valorant and dares to curse at my mother when she asks him to clean up the rotting garbage strewn around her room.”
After his father’s medical emergency, the family decided to sell the house. And ‘man-baby’ got the news that he had to go out and stop himself. The gravy train was over. According to redditor u/Frequent_Gas650, “The meltdown was legendary.” Scroll down for the full story, an update, as well as how Reddit reacted to the drama.
While we all mature at different speeds, it’s clear to most that a 31-year-old should be working a job and not spending all day playing video games.

It’s not just that u/Frequent_Gas650’s brother is lazy, it’s that he’s malicious. The Redditor described him as “an annoying, violent, selfish brat who would push my parents in front of a bus for the thrill of a dopamine hit.”
For him, life is about video games, online forums, and eating from a pantry that ‘magically’ replenishes itself. Whenever he doesn’t get his way, he lashes out. Even the non-emergency line knows what his mood is: he’s violent. Meanwhile, the firefighter neighbor is also aware and available to calm things down if needed.
In the update, the OP shared how his brother was shocked to learn that he would have to use his savings to pay for his meals. The money he would have spent on upgrading his computer. Ultimately, however, he realized that all his anger and rage would have no effect. Eventually, he ended up working with Uber to make some dough and found a place to live… if we’re being honest with you, it sounds absolutely terrifying.
According to the OP, he “started out living in a 3 bedroom over garage, run down crack house right out of Compton”. The rent is cheap, but he’s still screwing up his family for money. Meanwhile, he thinks he’s too good to work for McDonald’s (although it’s possible to have quite a career there, even earning six figures as a manager, as Board Panda recently wrote here ). “The man-child is gone from the building,” the OP gloated. What will happen next is anyone’s guess.
Some people find it easier than others to be grateful for what you have. However, it is a skill that can be learned and, arguably, should To be learned it keeps you grounded. It keeps you humble. And it makes you aware of all the blessings in your life. It’s one of the cures for a deep sense of entitlement.
Fitness expert and entrepreneur Jack Bully has talked about gratitude before. KristenBellTattoos.com. “Gratitude is incredibly important, I believe. I practice it every morning as part of my routine. Having good teachers helps big time,” she said of having other people guide you. I can help and help keep you humble no matter how high you rise. “And life usually has a way of humbling those who are too proud,” he noted.
Some ways to practice gratitude can be very simple, according to a fitness expert. For example, you might start by writing down 5 to 10 things that make you feel lucky. You can then try sending a thank you message to someone you are grateful for.
“It’s so easy to take everything for granted these days,” Jack said. However, with a change in perspective, you can change everything. You can ‘train’ your perspective to focus on gratitude, he said. He added that the best thing anyone can do in life is to move their body more. “Figure out what you enjoy that involves movement and do it. It could be sports, hiking, walking around the mall, etc.
