I Have No One To Talk ToFeelingsI Have No One To Talk To<div class="ExternalClass43C8A5579F2E4FA897A812ECC438B73E"><p>​For about 5 years I have suffered from depression, also anxiety. Lately I don't know what to do with my life, I've been thinking about my end. These days my depression has worsened a lot, I have a hard time doing some things that matter to me. It's like watching a movie that is being filmed around you, one where everyone has their happy ending except you. I have no one to talk to. I only have my mother and she, despite being very wise, is very religious and because I and God are not in good terms to say .... it does not help. I hope someone here can help me, please. <br></p></div><div class="ExternalClassDCCBF6D577714CE2836EEBC95AD9088A"><p>​We know you are in a lot of emotional pain right now but you took an important first step in reaching out for support and that is courage inside of you that you might not have even recognized was there.
