So basicly I've suffer from depression and anxiety (particualrly social anxiety) for pretty much the last 5 years, I am currently 20. I've never had a good social life or many good friends but even the ones I've had I barely see because I'm too anxious to ask them to hang out now I bascily have no friends anymore as they moved on because we barely hung out. I'm an introvert but I've always wanted to have a good social life and a good group of friends who I get on with really well but I just don't have it. Frankly one of the main reasons I believe I have depression is that I don't live the kind of life I want to live. Its got to the point were I don't even like leaving the house anymore my anxiety is that bad. i've gotten better for short periods of about three months in the past couple years but they don't last. I want to have real friends who wanna hang out and I wanna hang out with too, people who make me feel at ease. A lot of my friends in the past were either not good friends or just superfiscal. I have two real friends left but we barely hang out and I'm always gonan be second choice to their other friends. Any advice? I'm really feeling like I'll never have the social life I want, Frankly its one reason moving to another country appeals to me as It would be a fresh start but first I'd need to be get over my anxiety and depression otherwise the problems would just replicate.
I have no social life?

Therapy. I strongly suggest therapy because this isn't something you can fix by yourself. You can sit and think about how you wish your life would be and dwell about it but that won't change anything, you have to make a change. This happened to me when I was hit by depression. I can relate to what you just described but I've been in therapy for two years now and I do live the life I want. It's never too late to change and it's never too late to start over. You must leave your comfort zone.0
