Have you gone through depressed episodes, too?It's much better to focus on the positive. Today l was in the dumps because l thought l will never find anybody to fix my roof. So l fretted, moaned. Thought about how horrible life is, (cue giant pity party).Then l got out of my sad clown face and started calling around.
My point is everything can feel like a struggle. So just keep working towards your goal. More female friends. More confidence. Maybe start a blog here about everyday, you did something to initiate contact, and how it went. There are other men here who go thru the same struggles. So they say, hey, l was like you. It did feel helpless. But l just kept moving forward. They are trying to give you hope, (not make you feel bad about yourself).
A part of me still wants to believe my life can get better.
