    I'm a quiet person but it wasn't hard

    for me to make friends when I was younger. I was friendly & approachable. But as I lost friends after 5th grade. They slowly disappeared after each grade. My freshman year I learned the "friends" I had left were using me because I got good grades in all my classes. They found...

    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.

    I have been living with my mum recently,

    and she is literally making me go crazy. I am an only child, and I had to temporarily move and live in where my mum is temporarily living in, as a vacation. The vacation is alright, the city and everything, but in where my mum lives, she is always mad at me, and sometimes she...

    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...

    False Hope

    I am turning 16 in a month, and I've been struggling with depression for a long time. I am an athlete, involved in art, and in advanced classes (doing pretty well, but still feel stupid compared to everyone else). I don't have family issues, but we're kinda tight on money, and I...

    Weekends are always that trigger point,

    I Were!!!

    This doesn't apply to me much anymore. It's hard to be lonely with so many people to chat with on here now. =p But yes... 99% of my depression in the past was due to isolation and loneliness. It was due to my social anxiety, or the end result of it. I didn't have any friends...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
