    But is it socially inept to be participating in discussion on a forum? This question is to highlight that you have some level of confidence, and not to pry or dig.

    Are you receiving therapy at the moment?

    I feel like I'm constantly out of my comfort zone in most social situations.

    If it's something that you believe is affecting your ability to create, develop and sustain relationships, then yes.

    Like I said, only you can help you. If being socially inept is the problem, help yourself find a solution; learning to deal with that trait may it be through therapy, because that's the only thing stopping you (taking the leap to help yourself).

    I used to be like you. It's really quite simple...get out more! Make the effort! If you want friends, go and FIND some...they're not going to come to your house and knock on your door to find you!

    Do you work/go to school/college/uni? Do you have hobbies like sports? All good ways to meet new people.

    Ultimately you have to really want to change your life, but you can do it! good luck.

    Also, try and be more positive. Being negative gets you nowhere, and tends to make people take a disliking to you!

    Your life is not 'grim'. Your life is not what you want, but it can be if you make the changes yourself. You have the power to make your life different and be happy. Not to do so is laziness xx

    I do try, I'm working at the moment it's not like I just sit at home and sulk. It's just that when I come back home for any holidays (like Christmas) it makes my life feel even more depressing.
