    iv'e suffered from depression all my life,i was born like it,i'm 46 now.my biggest concern these days is people, i find them cold and distant and i hate them for it. maybe they don't like me for some reason i don't honestly know.
    i have not always felt this way about others. i think people have changed over the years,people have become antisocial.

    Welcome. I don't know where you live, but in the U.S. I find this to be a huge problem. People just live in their own world, drive their own cars...we are so separated from others. It is a real effort to connect with others. But I think more of us care than don't...it just gets harder to show and express it. Even when someone smiles at me at the store, I just feel better, more connected. I just do what I can...help people with the door or their bags, say "hello"...etc. These things make me feel a greater connection with my fellow human beings. A smile can do wonders. I just try not to let myself be one of those disconnected people who just sleepwalk through life, and I can feel good about that. Try it if you haven't already. People respond to it, and you can see that just by a kind word or gesture that they are feeling the same way, that they also crave that connection; sometime you just have to initiate it. My favorite thing is to pay random sincere compliments to complete strangers...it makes their day and mine as well :)
