Life's just harder and lonelier for me than it used to be. No real friends at uni, the only person alive that truely understands me at all lives miles away and we've never met, not in a course I particularly like and that is very very very hard. Those are the main things, though not the only things.
It's mainly having no-one I feel close to at uni, no-one I feel truly comfortable around, not fitting in and feeling exactly the same when I go back home. I'm lonely wherever I go I therefore, I don't like uni and I don't like home either. It's not that I don't try to make friends, I have a lost of friends they just can't relate to me.

People are more depressed because they don't fit in with the ideal images of what a person should apparently be like.
People moan about being lonely, then when they find a partner they say "I wish I had more time to myself".
I don't think people know how to be happy with what they have. Less of the whole wanting to have time by yourself, wanting to have more time with a friends. If you don't want these things then you wont be unhappy, simple...It's like cutting unhappiness off at it's roots instead of treading about it all the time.

consumerist society...we are told to 'buy this...it will make you happier/better/more successful/richer'
also, as a result, we are told that buying these things will enable us to be one step closer to perfection...we are striving for perfection in our lives, and the media is trying to trick us to think that if we do this or that we'll get it.....but we will never be perfect...we're humans!!
