Question I'm not sure what I am doing wrong - May 3rd 2011, 03:33 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I'm a junior in high school, I have one friend and I have never been so lonely and lost in my life. I'm struggling with mild depression that eventually ended a strong relationship I had with my best friend (he's my one friend). Since my freshman year I have been asking myself "what is it about me that makes no one want to talk to me or take a chance to get to know me?" I don't see anything wrong with me. I don't talk my mouth off, I'm skinney, decent looking, I don't dress creepily, I don't do things that I think would make people not like me.
Its not even just in high school too. A girl at my work said I should "just start looking for a new job" because apparently my boss hates me because I took off one day of work after working over full time as a minor and another manager screamed at me today claiming that I'm "the reason why the company is losing so much money and I do everything incorrectly." And all this time I thought I was a good worker and I tried my hardest... I just don't get it.
I just don't get why everyone is enjoying their high school life and I sit at home or work on Friday nights. No matter how hard I try to make friends and talk to people they never want to talk back. I am an interesting person...
...I just hate my life now. I feel like a pathetic person even writing this but I'm sick and tired of this. I'm losing hope in people and in myself. I don't want to be alone the rest of my life. Everyone says to wait until I'm out of high school and things will get better. But its just difficult.

...I just wish someone genuinely liked me.

Hey, I'm sorry things are bad at the moment.
Is there any where else you can make friends, like clubs or things, if you're still in school?
If you really feel depressed, go visit your doctor if you haven't already, because therapy/counseling or medication may be needed.
I'm not sure, but I have a feeling, that the way the manager who yelled at you acted wasn't right, and you may be able to report it.
I'm here if you need a friend on here, so remember you're not completely alone. PM me if you want to chat.

Do you wanna come with me? 'Cause if you do, then I should warn you - you're gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past. Aliens from the future. The day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. But I'll tell you what it will be: The trip of a lifetime!

Don't trust a perfect person and don't trust a song that's flawless.
RIP Granddad Terry. I'll miss you.
