I have been sitting hear crying for an hour trying to find a silver lining in my life. I feel that I have no right to feel depressed and alone, because other people have it a lot worse than I do, but I can't help it. I am in my 30s and my life is going nowhere. I see the people around me accomplishing so much with their lives, and I see how they look at me and think of how pathetic my life is. I don't have any close friends and I have never dated anyone in my life. I am at the point where I would love to settle down and have a family, but it's never going to happen. My social anxiety is so intense that I can't go out unless it's to work and back; I can't even talk on the phone to people. It's pathetic and depressing and sometimes I wish it would just end. I don't see the point in living a life like this.

Please go to counseling. Social anxiety is curable and a trained counselor can help you get through it.

change your attitude- start watching tony Robbins and Joel Osteen on youtube they will explain it

I have been where you are, and there was a point where I wanted to end my life, but I decided to consult a psychitrist before ending my life. He put me on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs, and they worked, and today I feel a lot better and I suggest that you do the same. I am sure they will work for you as well. Just in case if they don't, I would end my life if I were you, cause I know how it feels when every moment we spend is a living hell. When we can't even talk to people and function in social situations.

You have every right to enjoy your life, fuck other people and their accomplishments. DONT LET SHAME CONTROL YOUR LIFE. You can still succeed because youve got willpower. Thats the only thing that ever mattered. Dont give up my friend, I know how fucked up life can seem and how society can box you in with expectations. Fuck that. This is your life and no one elses.

IMAGINE- A life where you feel fufilled, and powerful, and in control..... what is it like? What are you doing every day? How do you treat other people? How do you treat yourself?

Dont let the judgements of other keep you from progressing. If you go out and embarass yourself, youve got a reason. You were just acting in the best interest of you. You were proliferating the cause of you. It might seem weird to them if you are awkward or say something weird, but thats all it is. Just another step you had to take to turn your life around.

Victory is not dictated by whether or not you have succeeded or failed, but how long until you have given up.
