Any girl you might like is of course going to be with someone else. I feel extremely left out and lonely.

Do not emphasise on looks and appearance.

You can't judge personality on a few posts.

I've found that if anything makes you feel unhappy or insecure on social media, unfollow and only fill your feed with things that you want to see and benefit you. Life is too short to feel bad about things you can't control, like other people's lives!

Also, just remember that social media is a curated and carefully chosen parade of what people want you to see - not real life. I know people say this all the time, but it's true, you pick the best bits out and not the things that make you human. Everyone's life has good and bad in it, so just think about that when you're scrolling through

No.
I don't emotionally invest in social media or have much interest in selfies.
I mainly use it to message friends living abroad, exchange viewpoints with sane law abiding people, find new recipes and enter competitions.
I'm used to social media's unpleasant few- the vicious trolls, conspiracy theories and criminal thugs.
Mock, block or mute.

I'm really sorry to hear that you feel that you don't have good moments anymore. I'm sure that this won't be the case forever, but I can understand that social media, with it's ability to make you think everyone is leading an incredible life and never have any down days, can make you feel this way. When I was using Instagram, I found that staring at the good things that were happening to others made me feel like the good things that were happening to me weren't good enough - even though they absolutely were!

Maybe try and replace time you would spend scrolling through social media with things that make you feel happy, or things you enjoyed before you started to spend a lot of time on your phone. You might find that doing this will give you some good moments, even if that's not what social media thinks is 'good moment worthy' (i.e. the kind of stuff that only very rarely happens, but people make it look like it happening all the time!). I used to love reading before I spent a lot of time on my phone, and then I stopped reading completely when I had easy access to social media all the time which was a real shame. Now I've cut back on social media (I check FB maybe once every two days and Instagram rarely) I have time to read again, which is a good moment for me!

If you're struggling with feeling down all the time, I'd recommend checking in with someone at school/uni or your parents about how you're feeling. They may be able to help refer you to someone who can support you, or encourage you to have a chat with your doctor. Check out Young Minds as well, they can help you with working out how you're feeling if you don't feel ready to talk to people yet and help with directing you to some support.

Good luck

then stop being a slave to social media and go find something worth pursuing that makes you feel good.
