Depression

I’m 31 years old and depression is hitting hard. I feel so lonely even though I have a couple good friends. I have a 14 year old son that keeps me busy but I still feel so alone. I’m afraid of change and what life has to bring. I feel like I’m never going to meet anyone and all my friends will be married before me. I just want to know is there anyone out there that has gone through this before? And if so any good advice for bringing myself out of this?

  • …but of course my friend
    at one point or another everyone feels lonely, it is a feeling unavoidable, lonelyness is just not knowing what to do when you are alone or by yourself. Just because you have a boyfriend, husband or partner does not mean you will not feel lonely, pick up a hobby, do something you love and enjoy, put meeting someone outta your mind and when you least expect it, that someone will find you, veg out in front of the tv, enjoy life, we are born alone and will die alone, I was in a relationship for 13 years, and felt more alone then, then now. soplain, if life is giving you lemons, make lemonade and put extra sugar in it. You will be ok, it will pass.

  • I totally know how you feel and the best place to start is to find a good therapist. A trained professional will help you through this emotional time, develop an action plan and help you to love your life and abandon the need to compare yourself to anyone. You are on the right track because you are already reaching out for help via this forum. Good luck!

  • soplain, raising kids is rough and even more so when you are going it alone. If you are afraid of change start small. A good step might be to make a list of things that you would like to change in your life. Keeping a journal is a very useful tool in organizing your thoughts too. Also, for your son’s sake have the courage to change the things that are not just right in your life. There’s a saying that goes,”If mama’s not happy, nobody’s happy.”
