    I'm a girl (ignore the silly username) who doesn't have many friends and currently on a gap year. All I do is stay indoors and i'm an introvert so I don't like socialising much. Once people get to know me, i'm quite bubbly and have a really fun, outgoing personality. I just feel like my life hasn't really been exciting for the past 19 years and I haven't made much worthwhile memories. People say "you've got your whole life ahead of you" which is a little comforting but at the same time, nobody knows when they will die. I'm going university soon (this autumn) but commuting as my uni is less than an hour away. Will my life become more exciting from then on?

    My uni is one hour and a quarter away. I still have a good life, though I mainly stick to my already established friends mainly. I have very good acquaintances at university, despite the commuting.

    To be honest, commuting to uni removes one of the most exciting aspects of first-year: shared accommodation. I found living in halls fantastic, and you sound somewhat like me before I started. If there's still time, try and get a place in halls, it's a fantastic way to meet new people.
    Hope this helps

    You sound exactly like Maid Marian...

    In any case, life will get more exciting if you make the effort. If you just stay in your room all day at Uni or never make the effort to go out then you can hardly complain about your life being dull. You've got to put yourself out there and perhaps join societies which is a really good way to meet people.

    I totally get you. I feel the same.

    Perhaps, every month, do something exciting. Go camping, go to the countryside/beach, join societies, do things that are out of your comfort zone. Be wild

      Don't worry, you are not the only person who doesn't have many friends and struggles to forge new friendships from the sounds of it as I am in the exact same position. In my job I have to nearly constantly talk to customers and colleagues. The customers I was fine with from day one but the colleagues? I barely said a word to any of them for about 6 months, maybe even longer as I've been there nearly 4 years now and now I talk to them like any normal person, sad thing is I wouldn't class anymore than 2 of them as actual friends and I kind of doubt they would actually class me as a friend, that's kind of depressing

      Going to university will help to a degree as you will see the same people most days and you are bound to become friends with a few of them, am hour commute is nothing really as if I went uni my commute would have been 1hr 40 at minimum. I didn't go to university and sometimes I feel like I missed out massively on the social and academic aspects. If you want to make your life more exciting now just get out of the house, do anything that changes your life from your current routine. Go to the cinema, local tourist attractions if you have any.

      Also, remember you have your whole life ahead of you

      Dear BOB2014

      --- First of all you have to know , that you are not (I repeat : you are not) the only person to have felt this way. The ages of this emotion ranges from teenage years to senior citizens to people in their 40's (midlife crisis). I think the key here is to take one day at a time . And every day do something that you can be proud of . Open your heart to the world - there is so much to be done, and I know it sounds cheesy, but you have a purpose in YOUR life . Think of a talent you have , something you really enjoy doing . Think of something that makes you smile and understand that the CREATOR of the universe created you for a reason . Now you may not have the opportunity to be a Rosa Parks or Winston Churchill right now - but just take a walk and smile at someone. Make their day. Look for opportunities to serve your community and find true happiness in making other people happy. Write a list of all you have to be grateful to God for, and understand how truly amazing you are as an individual.
      It doesn't matter what anybody may say , but YOU ARE SPECIAL . I know you've probably heard all these lines before, but they are true. No one can be you .
      Remember , happiness is a state of mind. You can be in a slum and be happy or in a mansion and be bitter with the world . Only you can make yourself happy. You do that by:
      -trusting in God and His plan for your life
      -Understanding and owning your individuality
      -Making others happy
      -Taking the time to appreciate all that you have (comparing it to the people to have a right to be sad from their circumstances)

      Jeremiah 29v11 :
      For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

      -- This verse really helped me to have hope for the future. And a positive outlook on God's plan for my life. I hope you will be encouraged and find a faith in God that surpasses all expectations people may have for you. YOU WILL SUCCEED .
      And through Jesus , you can live life to the full. And be at peace with your life and where it is going.
