I'm 15 years old and my bestfriend is 18 years old. I love her(no homo). We have a lot of things in common and I laugh a lot when I'm with her. The problem is that she is really depressed. She thinks she's ugly because she never had a boyfriend in her whole life. She doesn't get bullied for being "ugly". She doesn't get bullied at all yet she still thinks she's ugly. I try to tell her that the reason she never had a boyfriend was because of her depression. She doesn't believe me. The thing is that she is really pretty. Long blonde hair, green eyes, kind of a roundish face and she's short, I guess boys find that attractive. She also doesn't come often outside. The only friend I have that I can go outside with is her. I really really wanna go outside more but she's so depressed she just doesn't want to come. I mostly spend my time in my home. I wish I had another friend just like her but not depressed...

  • There is actually this thing I wrote on a class last week about BDD it's also called "body dismorphic disorder" basically what it is, is that they keep telling themselves that they're ugly. And dosen't really wan't to speak of that problem. Because people wont take them seriously or will think they're out for compliments. But that's not the case, BDD can cause people to ruin their teenage year, by never going outside. Closing out themselves from society. It can also go far that she will hurt herself or suicide. Yes that can happen. So stay around with her, don't leave her or it can cause serious problems for her.

  • Tell her to stop with all the moping, there are people way worse off, don't get me wrong, I don't mean that her feelings about herself don't count since I don't even know half of what she's been through, but honestly non of that stuff matters, she has a friend (you) who likes/loves her and you keep on telling her how much non of that stuff she's fretting about matter to you, keep doing that, she needs it, but at the same time she needs a dose of reality....the world shouldn't revolve around superficial ideas of beauty, what she might think is ugly, someone else might think is more beautiful than life itself, at some point in our lives I assume every one asks themselves if they are ugly or not and to be honest the more you don't pay attention to such ideas the more they wont bother you and in the end the best thing anyone can do is find someone who loves and appreciates them for who they really are, good mood, bad mood, ugly, handsome, pretty, beautiful, what have you, the right person is still gonna think the sun shines out of your ass.. try bringing her out some more, introduce her to new activities you two might like doing...fishing, hiking or whatever recreational activities teenage girls do these days, you don't have to go extreme like house parties and clubbing and stuff, just start slow, find things you both like to do together, it'll help, plus you'll kind of have time to keep an eye on her, since she's depressed....
