I Am Depressed. I Just Joined The Site Tonight.

I just wanted to say hi to someone.  I have been having some personal problems and when I went to email or phone a friend about it I realized that I didn't actually have any friends.  I haven't seen some of my friends in over a year.  I moved and lost my job and am stuck now living in my parents basement in this town where I don't have anybody.  It is very lonely and very depressing.  I not only feel alone, but I am alone.  I haven't gone out with friends to have fun for over three years.  I don't know what to do to fix it.  I don't know how to make good friends that stay with you and hang out with you and stuff.  That's all for now I guess.

Hello...Im sorry too... I am in the same boat as you but ever since I joined this sight it has been a lifesavor. One day soon You will find the dream that I know are meant for you. Good Luck..Anto815

I know this feeling. I have been there after breaking up with my boyfriend a lot of my close friends have moved away or got married. I think it can be one of the saddest feelings and it hurts. You have to try and keep positive and know that you can make friends. Is there any hobbies that you can take up that you enjoy or can you volunteer. I had to do this and it helped me. I have to try and push myself out of my comfort zone all the time and have found if I believe in myself and go out in the right fr<x>ame of mind you have better experiences. It may take time. Remember everyone is an individual. Here is a few little quotes I like: ‘"yesterday is a memory tomorrow is a dream today is the reality .....make the most of it."<br />
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.” Dr Seuss

I'm sorry that you feel so alone. Hopefully you can stick around EP and make some friends here. I'm horrible at making new friends. I've been in the same town my entire life because I'm terrified that if I leave I won't find any new friends. And when I consider that I've lived in the same place my entire life and in all that time I've only managed to make less than a handful of real friends, that concerns me even more. I seem to do a lot better making online friends. I hope you can at least make some online friends too.
