replacement - November 20th 2011, 09:34 PM

is feeling replaced by people a form of depression?
I feel VERY replaced lately... like people don't want me in their lives and they go to other people in my life to replace me for, which bothers me because now the people in my life know other people in my life so I don't have anywhere to go to get away cause its all mixed up. maybe I'm being overdramatic but the one person I could rely on 100% is now becoming close with the one person I can't and kinda have to fake a smile with when I'm around.
any ideas?

It can be, yes. Depression is feeling sad for extended periods of time, and feeling like you have been replaced can definitely trigger that.
What makes you think that they don't want you in their life? You're friends are going to have other friends, but it doesn't necessarily mean that they are doing it to replace you.

And here you are living, despite it all.

This sometimes happens, and usally everyone at one point or another has the feeling of being confused, and has no where to turn.

I dont think there is much you can do. The only thing that I reccommend is putting yourself out there more, building new friendships. I also think if you get involved in a sport, or club that you will have less time to 'think' and that may help alot!

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
