My Life...
I feel like shit. I usually work out a whole lot beacause I used to care about how i look. GIrls dont seem to want me, i dont think they think im hot. So I dont care anymore. Forget girls, although Its what I long for and I really need so badly. Im so unhappy and so depressed. Theres millions of beautiful girls out there, why cant I have 1 of them. Nothing ever works out for me. Though I had a good job. Im only 17 got called from a big company to do some web design work. Went in, he said I was hired. Month or 2 goes by and he hasnt called me at all. I call him 1 morning and ask him if I still worked for him and he said no. Broke my heart because I actually though I was worth something. Really Im useless. I have no life. No pretty girls want me. I want to do something to make me feel better. I need to join the army. My last resort. Ill feel useful and Ill have some excitement in my life. Maybe Ill never have the girl i want. Which probably means ill never be happy. which probably means that I wont have much of a life. This is all I think about , I really want me a girl. I dont know what to do or how to express myself. So im coming here to relieve myself in a way. My parents piss me off so much, I just play along hoping that I can get out as fastas possible. im confused, lost, depressed, sad, lonely, the works. This is killing me.

Hi there,

it sounds as if you are giving yourself a really hard time, and deciding you are not worth anything before you have given yourself a chance. I suggest you continue going to the gym as physical exercise can actually help with feelings of depression and self image. However, you need to give yourself time and begin to think differently about yourself before things will change for you emotionally. If your attitude is one of girls not liking you, or they wont like you - you have decided for them already and they will pick up on this. You may also be giving off 'stay away' signals in your body language. If the job you had didnt work out, then it is important to give yourself the opportunity to try other places. Being only 17 you should consider furthering your education as this will definitely improve your chances. A career in the army is the choice of some - but it will not work out if you are trying to run away from problems or yourself - they will just follow you.

I would suggest that if possible you go and see someone for counselling so that you have the opportunity to speak about how you feel. You can access services via your GP. Although you feel angry with your parents at times they could help you with this by letting them know you feel unhappy and want to talk with someone.

Give yourself the chance that you deserve
