Unhappy Anyone else been through this? - December 8th 2010, 07:24 AM

Hey, I'm George. Been a long time browser but it's my first time posting. Anyways, right now I feel really depressed, and sad inside. On the outside though, I'm always so cheerful and happy. I'm worried because I don't think I can keep doing this much longer. I've been wanting to talk to a person for so long, but I don't have the guts to do it, so I came to TeenHelp... The following are my reasons...

1. I have no more ambition: Last year I was planning on going to a good university. Now, I'm for sure going to a community college.
2. I live in the shadow of my friend: My friend is really popular at school, and nowadays people only want to talk to me regarding him. (ex. yesterday, girl asked me if I knew who he liked cause she's liked him for a long time)
3. The girl I like is a grade younger: I've never been so attracted to someone in my life, so why does it have to be with someone I've only talked to once? I know it's common to date a year younger, but it's complicated when she's living her own life and I'm living mine. (I'm pretty sure she doesn't like me too)
4. Haven't talked to my dad in 3 weeks now: We live under the same roof, but we haven't talked to each other in about 3 weeks. It's not like we don't get along, it's just that we have an unstable relationship to the point where we fight every day. Now though, I don't care if I talk to him or not and it's worrying...
5. I brush past everything and don't care: I skip classes, stay up till 3, fail tests and consume what I'm not supposed to. I'm plummeting right now without a care in the world.
6. I'm just another person now: before, I used to be good friends with everybody, now they see me, and just continue doing what they're doing. I'm no longer someone people want to talk to, just another student at this school.
7. I wish I were a year younger...: someone has already called me a prick for saying it but it's true, I dislike my generation, and I really like the younger one. I would trade it all to be born 6 months later.
8. I'm no longer good at anything: before, I used to compete for the highest marks on tests, used to play soccer at a high level, and was considered among the best at sports. Now, I'm among the lowest academically, no longer the best at soccer, and just average at sports.

Thanks for reading, it's just that last summer I suffered from deep depression to the point where I would come out of my room for weeks, just to work, eat, and go to the bathroom... If you could give me advice, that would be great.

Hey George,
Well done for posting. I know how hard it can be to ask for help.
Reading over your list, it's no wonder you feel upset. Whilst you may be able to deal with each of those on there own, when it all piles up if feels a little helpless.

I'd suggest trying to think rationally about some of the smaller more manageable problems. For instance, you say you feel overshadowed by your friend. Maybe try and make new friends and find your own group as well.

In reality, i don't have advice. But i saw you had no replies, and thought i'd let you know that i'd taken the time to read your post.

Your not alone in going through a rough time at the moment. Is there anyone you can talk to? a friend or family?

Feel free to pm me if you want to chat x

Hey George, I'm sorry you're feeling so bad right now, I can't completely relate to you, but I understand where you're coming from. How long have you been feeling like this? If you really want to talk to someone, you could print this out and take it to them if you think that would help. Feel free to PM me anytime and continue posting, you aren't alone in this hang in there.
