Hi you guys I'm new to this forum so I'm quite nervous..
Well I just want to say that I'm giving up on life. I just don't see a reason to live..I graduated last year and ever since my depression has gotten worse. I have social anxiety and I'm afraid to leave my house. Everyday I wake up depressed. I stare in the mirror for hours wishing I was pretty. Although people say I am I don't see it at all since I was bullied in the past.
I also feel so alone and I feel like it's driving me insane. I stay with my family but the loneliness is still there. It's so much more to this story..but so far I just can't take it anymore

Sadly if we are told something often enough we start to believe it no matter how untrue it might be. It is bad enough when it happens to us as adults but when it happens when we are kids the damage all too often runs so much deeper.

At the end of the day, when everything is said and done it all comes down to choices. Our lives, regardless of what has been inflicted upon us or what sadness or horrors we have endured is what we ultimately choose it to be. This is not to say that it is or will be easy to empty the skeletons from our mental and emotional closets, only that it is possible to overcome tragedy and obtain that which we desire most in life and to make our lives good and meaningful on the most important level which is the personal one.

When we are ready there are people who are willing and able to help you find the right path for your life. You don't have to do it alone. All you have to do is make up your mind to fight, to do, and to not give up no matter how hard it may seem at any given moment.

As far as physical attractiveness goes that is only the icing on the cake. I do not have any idea what you look like on the outside nor do I need to know. What I do know is that what really is truly important is what the cake is like under that frosting, because it is the cake itself that will determine if people and more importantly that special person want to keep "eating" it every day.

Work on making yourself the type of person you want to be on the inside. Make yourself into a supermodel of positive virtues and character that is so powerful that it shines and I promise you that it will fully enhance the physical charms you have.

Hi there,

And welcome to the depression forum. I took a lot when I was a kid too. Surprisingly these people ended up wanting to be friends later in life.

We have to try to get past it. It isn't easy. We get negative feelings about ourselves. But you can change that. Do you go to any counseling? I highly recommend that. It will help you.

Keep posting, and know that we care here.

Hugs, Karen

Best thing you can do is to get out of the house and make some friends...
Did you just graduate from High School or College, either one it's still a very good accomplishment
and you deserve congrats on that...Maybe seek out counseling to help get over this as well
counseling sure can help...Your are worthy of so much, all you need to do is go and seek it
for yourself, life can be good...but don't let what's in the past haunt you, get counseling
to deal with it and move on from are worth it...
