I'm 21 years old and have suffered from anxiety and depression for 3 years now. I've been struggling more and more to actually see the beauty that is there in just being alive and can't seem to find anything I really enjoy to find a purpose. I'm definitely not suicidal, I just feel down all the time and don't get enjoyment out of anything I do. I constantly feel anxious about being lonely for the rest of my life and feel like I have no purpose. I don't feel like I'm living for anything. Do you guys have any stories about how you found your 'purpose' and began finding enjoyment in life instead of just living day by day, going through the motions?
It's my first time posting about my mental health issues so it's quite a big step for me and thank you to anyone taking the time to read and contribute.
