I feel like I always need to rely on someone.  My parents are not an option and never have been for support too.
I am taking anti depressants but still rely heavily on others for help.
I have realized that my friends aren't good for me and I would like to make new ones.
The thought of getting a job right now completely seems impossible.
I don't leave the house very often even though I am so envious of others and their fun
Does anyone have advice or have they been through it?  Basically I've been through hell and back and have had the worst possible people around me during these times.  My best friend stole my rent money, anything she could get her hands on.  Its hard to open up to people anymore!
I want to get out more but how?
thanks, Robyn

Your best friend stole your rent money? It sounds like you do need new friends. Maybe go for walks. You run into a lot of good people that way. Or go to a coffee shop or the library. I guess you should break ties with the people that you are hanging with. At least you wont be around people that you can't trust.

I think eventually you will make new friends, there are some good people in this world. Coming here is good. And we all care about you. I hope you feel better soon.

hugs, Karen

Hello robyn,

I am so sorry you are in such a tough spot right now. I am wondering if you have a physician and if your in therapy.  You say you live at home, is that with your parents?

A bit more information would be helpful.

We all want to be liked and respected. Most of us have an inborn trait to be kind and we do our best to help others in need. We are not dumb, we are kind to a fault sometimes.

The problem is that in our kindness and sharing we sometimes leave ourselves vulnerable to the nasty, selfish people who are only pretending to like us to satisfy their own agendas.

Take a good, hard look at your friends and decide if they are genuinely good friends or are they toxic.  It is best to stay away from the toxic ones.

Please keep posting as we are here to support you.

Take care
