I Am Depressed Because I'm Lonely

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,058 People

    Honestly I thought I FINALLY got out of it.

    That is until someone I thought was my friend back stabbed me in one of the worst ways possible (I will not talk about it) and then left me as a broken mess. What in hell's name am I supposed to do with myself.

    Ever wondered what it's like to have no friends?

    It is very lonely and crushing. You begin to obsess about the fact that you have no friends and wonder why. You turn your harshest critical eye inward and self-examine and magnify all flaws, searching for a possible answer. Since you obsess about it so much, you begin to feel...

    I told myself just now "you can

    and will make it through this". But then immediately I thought, "make it through to what" ?? Why do I need to make it at all ? Who and what is on the other side waiting for me ? If it's more of this then idk why I even bother hahaha.

    Thinking you've made a connection with someone

    and become close friends, then to all of a sudden have them completely ignore you without reason is a horrible thing. When you're already insecure it makes you over analyse absolutely everything you do and causes a severe lack of confidence. That happened to me lately and I...

    The reason why I joined EP

    because I was a little depressed, but over the time, after reading a lot of stories and exploring, I noticed that a lot of people here have worse problems than me so I felt that they needed a shoulder to cry on or just someone to accompany them throughout the difficult times of...

    What I Hate Most About It

    What I hate most about it is that if I ask for help, if I let someone find out, then they'll feel pressured or guilt tripped into spending time with me. I don't want to make anyone to feel like that. I really don't want to pressure anyone into keeping me company, I just want...

    I have no idea how to pick myself up.

    I'm a 17yo male and I live in a tiny town in rural Wyoming. I haven't really been able to make many friends, even though I'm trying really hard. Furthermore, I'm gay and being in a relationship is basically impossible here.

    Well I did it!! I tried to get over her by

    Weekends are always that trigger point,

    I'm starting to hate him again.

    video games is all he wants to do. we don't even have sex anymore. but he doesn't do anything to turn me on so we just won't do it. I'll probably forget about him in college anyway

    I relocated many years ago. I have yet to establish connections that would result in a friendship. What is bothering me, I just got home and been home for a few days and no one has missed me. No one asked about my road trip. I feel so alone. I am contemplating moving to my home...

    why I don't have friends. But I remember now. Because no one gives a **** about me or anyone or anything other than themselves. I'm just a stepping stone. Someone to use. Someone to fill a void. Someone to wring dry. I'm so sick of opening up. I'm so scared to do it again and...

    I have this feeling that my loneliness really

    comes down to two things - no one knows the real me and no one actually cares about me. People only know superficial things about me. They only act like they care about how I'm doing because they don't want to seem rude. It's selfish caring... it's not authentic. If someone knew...
