Who does God want to reach? The ひきこもり or 引き籠もり. The self-confined. The young, the hurting and the empty people. You.

Hikikomori (hiˌkēkəˈmôri):

A young adult who has withdrawn from social life and society, a recluse who fails to properly prioritize, is self cut off, often obsessed with TV, Internet and video games and rarely ever leaves one's room. As people refuse to leave their house or flat they start to think that their isolation from people is normal and they lose all interaction skills in their homes for say six months plus at a time. Could be mute and somewhat nocturnal–might not get the phone, the door or speak to anyone, often sleeps all day and emerges to visit the fridge and do their big screen stuff by night. 

Okay, so neglect, hurt, aimless hopelessness, and emptiness are all real. But choose to forgive and live footloose and fancy free - you won't be young forever. Make the most of each day and moment as you were designed to. Find out why you are here. Youth lasts about as long as smoke. 
So, remove sorrow, addictions, selfishness, grief, lazy-slothfulness, boredom, entitlement, passive-resentment and anger from your heart . Turn from sin–it destroys. Put away inner pain, porn, evil and time-wasting from you, because youth and the prime of your life are fleeting away. Live to give what will make a difference in your generation. Why feel sorry about all the squandering later on?   
Who does God want to Help with a capital H? The lonely self-confined Hikikomori: ひきこもり or 引き籠もり. You! Why? Cuz He loves you fiercely and has a meaningful, unique, excellent plan for you. Your life is no worthless accident!
"Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, 'I find no pleasure in them.'"  12/1eccl. 

"Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me." 27/10psalm

"Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted." 25/16ps.

"God sets the lonely in families, He leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land." 68/6ps.niv

"A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a Friend who sticks closer than a brother." 18/24prov. The one you and I need most today is Jesus Christ. 

"It is nothing to die (please don’t make it happen).  It is frightful not to live (but any day of the week you can choose to die to selfish ways and really live)." — Victor Hugo, Les Misérables, emph.mine
