Hi all. I’m 16.
i grew up in a perfect home of 4. My mum, dad and my sister. Both my parents had good high paying jobs and I was loved unconditionally. Everything was perfect for the first 14 years of my life. And then in a matter of two years my life was completely thrown upside down.
My parents started arguing and eventually things got so bad hey got divorced and my dad moved to the other side of the country, and I followed. I moved 3000km away from my mum and sister. I’ve struggled to make new friends in this town, and I’ve felt alone and depressed for about 1 year and a half now.
Ive always done well at school and am exceeding academically at the moment(Not meaning to brag). But I still don’t feel good enough or like I’m living up to the expectations. All I do is study, I don’t go out, don’t have any friends. It’s like everyone is living this teenage dream and having so much fun. But I’m stuck at home studying. I see everyone else engaging in relationships, but I’m to scared and awkward to even talk to girls. I feel as though I’m just falling behind all my peers. It’s like all I’m good at is school, nothing else. It feels as though I’m if I never get into a relationship now, I never will, and will live an even more lonely life than what it is now.
I don’t know if I should get over myself. But does anyone have any suggestions that could help me?
