Hello. I’ve been suffering with anxiety and depression for a couple of years now, but now it seems to have gotten bad.
I feel like I am stuck in an endless rut while everyone around me seems to be moving on and enjoying their lives. In my friend group, I am the only one who isn’t dating someone and it seems like why even bother trying. I have tried the dating apps and have had no luck. I feel alone and lonely while everyone else is enjoying life. In my perfect world, I would wish everything would just stay the same, but I know that that is impossible and that everyone moves on with life (except me it feels like). I also work at a dead end job that I hate while seeing everyone else excel in their respective careers. I feel like I need to stop comparing myself to everyone else, but with social media I can’t seem to stop those thoughts. I don’t know what I can do to stop feeling like this, which is torture. I wake up with anxiety and fall asleep with it. Just doing the same thing over and over everyday doesn’t help it.
Sorry this is so wordy, but I feel like just getting this off my chest is something I need to do right now.
