I don't want to move forward anymore

I feel so alone. I can't trust anyone around me. I've tried opening up about my fears, my regrets, my troubles. My friends and family just brush me off. I can't blame them. No one wants to be around a buzz kill. But they act like my emotions are so trivial. Their attitude is always "You'll get over it". But as the years have gone by, nothing has changed. I feel like such a failure. I don't have the motivation to try to move forward with my life. I have lost motivation for everything. I feel trapped. I don't want to kill myself or die but I don't want to live anymore. I hate being a quitter but it's gotten so hard to try and carry on. I can't shake this feeling of sorrow and melancholy. I don't feel loved or cared for. I feel used and taken for granted. I don't see a point to bettering myself anymore, not even for my own sake. I just don't care about myself and no one else does either. I don't see a point to anything anymore. I've become discouraged and have given up on everything; my hobbies, my work, my relationships. It feels like there is no point in trying if I am unhappy regardless of what I do. I hope someday I can prove myself wrong, but I can't do it alone.

If you don't care about yourself, you will continue to feel this way. Trust me, I've been there. Adjusting your thnking to accept that you are who you are, you have certain ways of dealing with things and you are worthy of praise and love can really help. Its difficult, there are lots of good books on the subject.

I hope you feel better soon, it might help talking to a professional as they can help you work on your negative thinking. There are some good CBT resources online, maybe check them out?
