Hi Avenge the suffering and welcome to DF! I am sorry to hear you've been bullied so much and that you find your situation hopeless. I've been bullied in the past too and I still try to deal with some of the damage it caused to me, but I'm healing all the time.

Well, the worst part about my life is that I don't seem to have any friends to rely on. And I can't seem to make any either, because people don't like depressed, not confident, awkward people.

We obviously don't know a ton about you right now - age, situation, job, who's bullying you and in what form.

What are you comfortable doing - do you have a hobby or strong interest? Perhaps joining a club in an area of strong interest for you, or doing some volunteer work?

I'm sorry, but I agree. Folks don't like to be around depressed, awkward people. But we can develop. Take your area of expertise and turn it into a positive for you.

Not to give you a rah rah story, but I know exactly how you feel. But over the years at work I became the company expert in a couple of areas. As I found people listening to me and understanding that they depended on me for information and guidance I became more confident in leading meetings, one-on-one dialogs, and imparting that guidance to others. I'm still pretty quiet in areas where others have the information/chops, but am more willing to voice questions and participate in discussions.

Don't know who's bullying you, but they're jerks. We ALL have SOMETHING to offer others.

Best wishes - stick with us!
