I often feel like everyone is better than me, at anything, I just don’t feel like I’m good at something, I feel like I have a bad time reaching out to people in real life. I have a few friends, but sometimes I just don’t want to overwhelm them with all my negativity. It’s really hard for me to make new friends, because I don’t feel good enough, I show everyone a smile because if they see who I really am, a depressive teen, they will not want to be around that much anymore.
Have you tried seeking professional help? Sometimes clinical depression can't just be handled by yourself. Sometimes you need medicine.Also, it's okay to feel sad, and I'm sure your friends would understand. You just have to give them a chance to help you.I understand depression, it's something I suffer with everyday, so if you need to speak to me, just pm me.
You have to realize the only person you have to be good enough for is yourself. I'm sure there are so many positive aspects about you, you just have to emphasize on those instead of the negative. Keep your close group of friends because that's all you need. If they're your friends now, they obviously have something they adore about you and all your future new friends are in for something special. (:
I'm in the same boat. It sucks, honestly. but I've figured that it doesn't help just sitting around and feeling sorry for myself accomplishes nothing but make myself feel even sorrier for myself...
It's a vicious cycle.
My advice? Try writing down everything you can think about yourself that's good. No matter how small it might seem. Once you start, it's hard to stop. Eventually, you should have a long list of good things about yourself. And if you don't, try again. And don't be afraid to talk to your friends. They are your friends for a reason. They should be there for you, otherwise they aren't really your friends.
