    Right...so I'm in year 13 studying history,georgraphy,biology and doing an EPQ. I am planning to study history at uni

    Currently I have few friends at school and with what few friends I do have, I have little connection. My gf and I broke up gf 4 months ago. We met up recently (my feelings of love towards her are gone) and briefly caught up before saying bye for probably the last time. She certainly was impotant in my life despite the relationship becoming toxic as converted me to an atheist and made me see things from a more scientific perspective. However, this has sort of made life seem meaningless and made the historical perspective (the perspective I used to look at things through) seem a bit pointless. I have very few friends, my grades are falling as I'm procrastinating from work by watching YouTube. Currently my EPQ deadline is tomorrow, luckily I've done 1/3 of what I need to do..and hopefully will get the rest done tonight. What should I do? I feel so empty inside as a person.

    Try to finish your EPQ. If you don't complete it, it will have a negative effect on your future options.

    Have you always felt this way or have something happened to bring about this change?

    Well..it doesn't really have to be in until January but the school deadline is tomorrow..so I need to get it done. I havn't always felt this way no. My life didn't feel empty when I had a few good friends in year 9, I enjoyed the things I did then. I suffered from anxiety in years 10 and 11 and when that stopped,my friendships with those people had broken down and I found less joy in the things that made me happy ...and despite attempts to rectify that though joining clubs and soceities to expose me to new things, I still feel empty.

    I'm sorry to hear you're having such a rough time, but just try to keep going day by day and focus on getting to uni. I have felt empty at many points in my life but if there's one thing I've learnt it's that you never know what's around the corner and usually something comes along that breathes life into you again. Stay strong
