Am I that hopeless...?

I just wish I had a support circle, family, friends, anything. I can't even rely on my close family, not that I don't want to, I can't. I have no friends more than on the internet, I'm recently learning how to socialize, but I'm still struggling with the whole trusting others because all of my experiences with personal relationships in the past. My parents are everything but supportive, my father always act dissapointed towards me and the way I do things, my mother care about others opinion more than the way I feel. I been improving our relationship a bit, but is still far from perfect, I been improving my confidence little by little, but I'm still struggling with depression. Everytime I fall on it again is like I have to restart from 0. I'm not that strong of a person, I can't keep it up just by myself.

  • Just writing to this site and explaining your feelings is a good first step. Keep it up (even though you will get some nasty comments from people who think they are comedians). Try writing a list of some of your strengths and the people who react positively to you. Try to notice when negative thoughts come automatically and then work on replacing them with a positive alternative thought. It is too easy to get into a downward spiral of negativity when your mind is training itself to link depressive thoughts, Each day take some time to identify even the smallest positive thought or experience and train your brain into an upward spiral. Exercise a bit as well. Walking is great for thinking, processing and planning ways to rebound and think about ways to feel better. Also, keep expressing yourself on this site. There are lots of people who feel like you and enjoy sharing their encouragement with you.

  • Just keep working toward improvement. Have confidence in yourself. I wish you the best.

  • I could have written this one myself. You're not alone. :)

  • There you go, two losers together

  • Haha, burn!!!

  • Haha, the burn comes when they shoot up your workplace. Watch your back, cupcake :D
