Hi,

You should never compare yourself to other people. Everybodies life has a different path & everybody responds differently to the challanges they face.

Have you tried talking to a counsellor about your self esteem issues? I think that would probably help you a lot.

Good Morning.  I agree with Confusedli, don't compare yourself to others.  There are many levels of Depression and your depression will be unique to you.
 
I would like to suggest you see your PCP for medical screening to establish your problems do not have a medical cause.  From there your physician can help you with getting into therapy.
 
Your self-esteem can affect how you feel, how you relate to other people, how you deal with challenges and how relaxed and safe you feel in your daily life. Please share all your feelings with your physician as that is the best place to start.

I agree with the above advice. Especially talking to a counselor. It has helped many of us. Coming here also helps too. But counseling is the main thing that I think that you need to do. One on one with an objective person always helps these situations.

I wish for you the best, keep posting and let us know how you are doing.

hugs, Karen

I'll nth counseling as well. It's helped me a whole lot. Things are still far from where I'd like them to be, but it's progress and just doing something as simple as seeing a counselor at my college for free since January has helped a lot. It's a nice outlet just to talk to someone, if only for an hour. You also don't feel the pressure of just carrying a conversation by yourself or anything. You can talk as much as you want or as little as you want and I still firmly believe you can get something out of it.
