Hello,

A little background on myself: I'm 17 years old currently studying Programming and Cyber Security.

So, it's summer now in Belgium so no school. And I don't really like going out or anything because I suffer from social anxiety. I also don't really find anything interesting and I don't have any hobbies... If I do have an interest I get bored really fast and just hop onto something else, which ends up being in a cycle. I tried different sports (Basketball, Muay Thai, Football, etc..) but I got really bored of it or... I didn't want to meet people. And sometimes, I feel very lonely, I don't really have anyone I can trust or depend on...

Do I suffer from depression? If so, how do I cure it? Thanks!

Just sounds like you're in a bit of a dip at the moment. Depression is one of the worst mental illnesses that can affect the human body. If you're worried, speak to your GP, there are mechanisms out there that can help you cope. Google mood juice, I found it useful.

You know the best way to cure social anxiety is to go out and socialise. The thought of socialising might sound scary at first, but you've got to throw yourself into the deep end. Sitting around and doing nothing is like the worst thing you could possibly do to yourself. Once you face one of your biggest fears, it is no longer a fear. You are feeling lonely and perhaps depressed from that lack of social interaction, but what's the worst thing that could happen (you are saying the wrong thing? embarrassing yourself?) I'm going to let you into a little secret- People don't care about how you act, what your wear etc. they care about how THEY come across to you. So don't be afraid, life is too short to be hiding from people. Hope this helps!

I find this extremely relatable.
