    I'm writing this to vent and get it off my chest, but any advice would also be appreciated.
    I'm a 21 year old male, I dropped out of uni and I'm now living back at home doing a job I don't really enjoy with absolutely no friends or social life, and frankly I just feel like absolute crap.
    The friends I do have are all at uni and seem to be having an blast, making new friends, making a life for themselves, having complete independence. I just feel like I'm stuck in a prison and my life is going nowhere. I see the same people everyday and there's no oppertunities nearby to meet anyone new. To top it all off my girlfriend of 2 years broke up with my recently too, and I've recently found out she's now seeing someone else (who she met at uni). I just feel completely worthless at the moment. I want to move out and meet new people and enjoy being a young independent any adult. But instead I'm stuck at home, and treated like a kid.
    My daily routine consists of waking up, working, coming home, gym and then sleep. My life feels so boring compared to everyone on social media who go to festivals, and have holidays and spend all their time with friends. I just don't know where I've gone wrong... Does anyone else feel like this?

    So make a plan to make changes?
    New job?
    New qualifications?
    New interests and hobbies?

    If you dont make change then it will stay the same.

    I wouldnt kid yourself that everyone at uni is having a great time.
    You might always be able to go back to uni., but if out then you could do an apprenticeship or what id look at would be any professional qualificaions in areas you are interested in.

    No need to panic you are nly 21, so take it as an opportunity to plan and think what youd like to do.

    Bro you have to ask yourself what you want in life...
    Alright you broke up with your girl. unfortunately, that's something you have to get over with. you say you're bored, why don't you make an online business that's definitely going to keep you on your toes and if your business booms you can quit your job and not have to worry about working for anyone.
    you say you have no friends, I don't know how it's possible not to when there're tons of social media out there. you had a girl so I'm assuming your not the ugliest person in the world and the fact you go gym daily is a plus. if you're not a social media type of guy, go visit different towns or cities and go to events or clubs where you can meet new people.
    BTW don't think going to uni means you have a better life.
