6 months until graduation. Feeling like a failure.
I'm a senior at a small liberal arts college and suffer from social anxiety and depression. Even though I was able to study abroad in Spain and am now a club head I still can't make any friends. Just to be clear I DO NOT HAVE Asperger's or anything on the spectrum since I've had several psychological analyses done. When I tried inviting people to do things and putting myself out there, I just kept getting rejected over and over again. I have trust issues after being bullied all throughout school (including college too) and many of these bullies were people I was naive enough to consider "friends". I try to focus on school and figuring out what to do after graduation, but I still feel so lonely and ashamed of myself. It does not help that friends and acquaintances of my parents will not stop pestering me asking about "college friends" and when they will meet them. Even when I've tried asking people if I can sit with them they say no and tell me to go away. I know I want to go to law school but can't stop panicking over what if I still can't find "my people". How can I get through these next six months?32 replies
