    I was just wondering if anybody had any words of wisdom or motivation or whatever you would want to call it.. I am currently twenty-three, and living at home . I am a student, just finished my first year of a social work course and do feel as though I am finally on the right track towards doing something with my life..... (although I am starting to stress a little as exams are approaching).

    Anyway. I am also single, and have been single for a long long time, I suffered some sexual abuse when I was younger and am just about to start some therapy to finally sort myself out. Again, this is me trying to sort my life out. The only thing that is getting me down is that I have no friends anymore, we all kind of drifted apart mainly because my friends girlfriends just didn't like me. I guess thats what happens when your best friends are guys and from what I can see through Facebook (I wish I had never looked) they are all moving in to their own homes, and two of them have children. I am not saying I want children, but there is no way in hell I could ever afford a house right now. I think I have about £1000 in my bank account.

    I feel as though I am stuck.. I will be a student for another two years, and probably still living at home.. I know they probably won't be but I do feel like they may be laughing a little, despite the fact they all have mortgages and babies bums to wipe... I am still living the life I had when I was 16... Is this sad? I feel sad..

    You aren't stuck really as you will have a job to go into when you're 25, you might get a mortgage and have kids later than your friends but that doesnt mean you wont ever get it Could looking into moving into student accommodation be helpful for you?
    If you have the time available, why not join a society or a sport team to meet new friends?
