    Hi everyone, I've really got the blues lately. I don't have many friends and I always feel so alone, I've got nobody I can talk to and nobody to see on the weekends.

    Because of this, I start looking forward to moving University a lot more (September 2017). I'll have a fresh start and new friends, hopefully I'll have a less lonely lifestyle.

    That's all good and well, right? But because I'm so hopeful about going to University and I'm so down about my current life, I've started to worry a lot about missing my offer... which in turn, demotivates me and makes me feel like more of a failure

    I need some help lifting myself back up off of the floor and getting myself in the right mindset to do more work and achieve the grades I need, what would you guys recommend?

    Ambition is believing in yourself even when the whole world does not.

    You are not a failure

    I'm in the same boat as you unfortunately. I guess what I'm trying to do is think that going to uni will give me at least a chance to change my situation. If I don't go nothing will change. If you feel really low have you considered speaking to a professional?

    I know I can do it, it's just that I'm so demotivated that I'm not working so I'm not going to achieve the grades

    Hey OP,

    Really sorry to hear you're feeling down about this — I hope that things are looking better for you soon. I've moved this thread over to mental health, we've got a really strong and supportive community here and they'll be sure to have some tips to help you out with this. I really hope this is OK and I echo what everyone else has said. :penguinhug:

    Use you hate for your current situation to motivate you. That's what I am doing to push me through this last year. Everytime you find yourself distracted, procrastinating or just sat in bed doing nothing then think to yourself 'do I really want to be sat in the Same position next year' if the answer is no then get your ass up and do work. Engross yourself in it as a distraction from your *****y life and before you know it the year will be over

    I can understand where you're coming from. The start of university is daunting and emotions can go flying. All I can really say is trust in yourself, remember that many others have been through this exact same process, and as long as you make an effort things will be alright.

    The problem with loneliness is it can be something you create for yourself. You feel lonely, and thus you can distance yourself away from opportunities. I suggest you think of it this way. Focus on your studies = Good grades = Go to uni = make new friends.

    As difficult as it can be, don't think too much about your present situation and concern yourself more with the future. You put the effort in, you'll reap the benefits. Believe me.
