Unhappy I have no social life - July 19th 2012, 02:03 AM

Ok so, I've been very depressed lately. I pretty much have little to no will left to live and it is killing me inside. I live in a house where I have no freedom. I cannot go anywhere due to lack of money, I cannot go to college due to a lack of money and no license so I also can't leave anywhere or get a job. I feel like a fucking loser and really seriously have no purpose and am not worth much of anything to anyone. My mother is insane among other things. I'm going to rot here.

Hey there,

I'm sorry you're feeling like this, it sounds like an awful situation to be in, but you are not worthless and you are not a loser.

You can never get anywhere if you don't try right? So, maybe you should start in steps, you know. I know you said you have no license but can your mum drive you? You could go to the DMV or whatever it's called and try to get your license, that would be like step one.

Step two, could be maybe trying to find a job? If you can get a job, even a part-time one, you'll be able to get funds for college or money to pay for courses on the internet or your driving lessons or something like that.

Somewhere among those things maybe you could try to see someone about how you're feeling. You could try going to a counselor and talking about how you're feeling trapped at home and how you're feeling so bad about yourself. I'm sure they can help, and they could even try and help you with your mum, see if there's a group/parent-child therapy.

Don't ever think that you've got no purpose, everyone has one, stay strong!

Hey there, I'm going to move this to Depression and Suicide where you will hopefully get more replies. General Health is for ailments to your physical body.

As for your post, I am sorry you are feeling like this. I've been there. Several times. I'm doing better now. I moved out of my mom's place and out of the town I grew up in. It actually helped quite a bit since I was able to 'start new'. So keep in mind, you might be able to do the same when you are old enough.

However, for the time being, have you tried getting into a club or sport to get you out of the house and to be doing something active? A lot of times doing something productive or active gives us a sense of purpose. Perhaps you can try this.

Also, setting small goals can help you to feel accomplished, giving you more sense of purpose. For example, today I told myself I would get out of bed at 8am instead of 10am. I actually got up around 7am and feel great! It was such a small goal...but I had been struggling with sleeping in, and I finally did it. Now I have more time during the day and I feel I can get more done. So, set small goals and start upping the difficulty when you get bored of them.

If you want someone to talk to, PM me. I'm always open. Though it may take up to 24 hours for me to reply.
