I feel like I have no friends and I often want to die because I feel very lonely and I feel like I’m leaving myself out.

I know me saying I want to die might be a bit over the top but with other issues in my life it really affects me mentally.

I do want to improve my life, but I don’t know how

I feel like this sometimes. You just have to learn being comfortable and enjoying your own company

How old are you?

I'm 37 and have no friends. I do however have a wife and three children, and work 60 hours a week, so I wouldn't have much time to socialise anyway.

Lockdown is making things very difficult for everyone right now. Contact your GP if you really do feel that down, you may have depression.

I mean, that's pretty young. Do you have a job? Can you socialise with workmates outside of working hours (when lockdown is lifted)?

Hobbies? Do you enjoy your own company?

It really does sound like talking to a professional may help.

It's okay feel how you're feeling, needing people around you to socialise with is part of who we are and to say that you're okay with feeling like you have no friends would be lying. I want you to know that being able to improve your life starts with asking for help, and you've just done that by posting here so you're already one step closer even if you don't realise it. For you, I would suggest maybe looking into therapy. I know that might seem scary because that's what I thought too but after having my first therapy session it felt so good to talk about all of my feelings to someone and eventually I made a plan with my therapist to reach my goals in terms of the things I wanted to change in my life, whether that be how I manage stress, how I manage low feelings, or even being able to meet new people and make friends. I will leave a link at the end of this which will guide you through the steps of getting a therapist on the NHS, just know that it's normal to feel how you're feeling and it's very possible to get the help you want to be able to improve your life no matter what your situation is. If you ever need someone to talk to when you feel like this, feel free to message me I'll be more than happy to try and hep you figure this all out and let you know you're not alone.

At the end of the day you need at least one or two people to keep you company . whether it be a significant other, a pet, etc. maybe talk to people online on a relatively safe forum or get a part time job to make some friends etc. good luck !
