Ive started feeling really depressed because my best friend just got engaged and Im gonna be alone forever. I’ve always been alone but all my friends get to have meaningful relationships, does anyone else feel like this or just me? I feel so hopeless and I need the release self harming brings

I used to think I would be alone forever but I met my first proper boyfriend this year at 39
it is hard when friends/relatives move on but that doesn't mean they don't love is anymore and that we wont find someone special too
my whole adult life I saw my sister with different partners and I was alone but now I have found someone special too ,and the same could happen to you when you least expect it
welcome to the forum
love Lu xxx

It's ok. I understand what you mean! A lot of my friends are married or have kids,..... I don't have anyone just some friends and a few family members... And it's hard. I am convinced that I will never find a meaningful relationship and I will be alone forever.... But it's okay. .. because a lot of my friends have kids and they (my friends) need help with their kids, and their kids need additional parental support...…..So I have made my "Family" to be HUGE!!!! I have like an additional 7 sisters now and 15 kids...….. It is awesome!!!!!

It's been a long few days and after a couple of clean weeks I have a few new stripes. Oh well, the morning marks a new day.
