This time in my life more than ever, I have been feeling utterly hopeless. I dropped out of High School, this may have been the biggest failure in my life thus far. Although it may not seem so bad to most people, I feel as though I have lost everything I have worked for. I cannot afford what it will take to live a decent life. I will always be struggling to get by, more so than your average person, just because of the cards I have been dealt in my life. I can't maintain a relationship with any people. Leaving my own room to face my family is difficult enough, let alone meeting new people. Posting here is even a large step in what could likely be the wrong direction. I feel like I am just a flawed person. I see anything but a bright future for myself. I would love to hear from people who may have felt like me at one time. Is life all that awful? Even for someone as socially introverted as myself, as depressed and hopeless, is there any point?
