    I always feel like I'm not a good enough friend, or family member. I always feel like I let people down.

    A lot of my 'friends' seem to like ignoring any messages I send to them. For example, on Messenger, they'll either read it, stay online for ages and then reply to me (because they'd rather speak to someone else), or they'll not read my message but will have been online.

    It's hard getting time off where I work (retail). I wanted to go to New York with 2 friends. 2-3 weeks later, I finally get the time off approved, but now they're all moaning towards me because the cost of the flights and accommodation has risen.

    I feel like I have no one, or I do things like that which annoy people and they don't like me.

    A friend of mine has stopped talking to me. He likes Doctor Who. If you watch it, you'll know the new Doctor is a woman. As a joke, I sent him a photo of a crashed Tardis and said "look what she's already done to it!". I only sent it as a joke. I never mean any harm. I'm not sexist. Like I'll joke about myself.

    I just feel like I'm not good enough and people don't really like me. I went out for a few drinks on the weekend with people from work for a birthday. She'd recently split up and later I said to someone that I'll probably always be single as no one likes me. She said something really nice to me and she said "everyone loves you" and "we're all here for you" but I just still feel people don't like me.

    you're over analysing by the sounds of it

    I will suggest you to make some new community around you. join any institute or classes which will help to keep your mind motivated and joyful.
    Be Smiley, God Bless you.
