I’m completely lost in the world at the moment and don’t think things will get better after a breakup.
I’m currently 23 and my girlfriend of 4 years has just completely out of the blue decided to break up with me. The reason being “because you’re not the one”.
This has completely turned my world upside down. I’m a very introverted kind of person when dealing with groups of people and find it very hard to make friends. Although if i’m on my own with someone, I have no problem and I am just your normal 23 year old, I just have a weird anxiety with groups.
My problem is that when I met my girlfriend, I made the stupid mistake of slowly drifting away from all my friends. She is everything I have in my life and I didn’t care at the time as she made me the happiest i’ve ever been and we enjoyed spending our time together.
Now that we’ve split, i’ve literally got nothing. I’ve had to move back in with my parents (who i’m not close with and find it difficult to talk with them). I’ve tried meeting up with friends but i’m not getting any interest back (which is fair enough after I basically ditched them i guess). I can’t even think about finding a new girl as i’m too shy to talk! I don’t think i’m particularly unattractive or lack in any personality, I just don’t have any self confidence at all!
I just really don’t know where to begin again and how to get past this. I know if I don’t think of something now whilst i’m still hopeful that everything will work out that I will just end up going back into my shell and just become depressed and alone and I don’t know if i can live like that as i’ve been there before and told myself I would never have to go through it again.
