Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

I'm home from college, and I am alone. I don't feel I can talk to anyone at home or any of my friends. I'm a fifth wheel at home because I'm not in a relationship. My friends from high school all stopped talking to me, and I was just rejected by a girl I liked. I work every day, and I feel it will never end. Sure it has made me independent, but no one understands how unhappy I am. Everyone assumes I'm alright because I hide everything and get good grades easily, but I'm seriously struggling. Truth is I escape my humanity in my work and the more I focus on my work, the less in touch I feel with those in my life.

  • I'm in the same boat, but in the UK the education structure is different. I've been home 3 weeks doing nothing and it has felt draining not being productive. I've not been out and as far as I'm aware, no one wants to meet up, plus my xbox gold had expired and I am broke so I can't play gta online with them.

  • Its funny because when you're in highschool-you saw those people everyday and that's when you become close. In colllege-you are working towards getting a degree and work like you said so it eats up a lot of your time. You're like in this limbo because in your undergrad classes you see people for only a semester and that's most likely it. I would try and maybe get involved in a club or two when school starts back up-as for now, try small talk with those if you have a job. I am in college and feeling the exact same way-it is good to hear I'm not alone in this thought I thought it was just me and was feeling like a total loser.
