Today I had a realization that possibly the biggest source of my depression is I don't feel like I have anyone that I can really trust in my immediate life. I don't have people who are like me with whom I feel like I can talk about things going on with me. It's truly dawning on me just how isolated I've become. I used to have a very active social life. I do wish I had people that were close to me, whether or not it's a romance sort if thing. Maybe it's healthy for me to have some time for self reflection, even if it doesn't feel all that great. Who knows..? I'm just grateful for every day that I wake up, and to have a roof over my head and food to eat.

That is very insightful.

How are you going to fix it? What steps will you take to be more social?

Anything is better than nothing. Just because you need more longer and brisk walking that makes you feel better doesn't mean that the OP here reacts the same way to exercise as you do. Some people don't have time to walk more than one mile a day! Just sayin'..

I was just pointing out having a sedentary lifestyle can make one feel depressed.

Hi!!!

Just wanted to let you know that you’re not alone.

It’s ok to feel whatever you need to feel. Be sad, angry, depressed. Let the emotions flow thru body.

You can be whole and broken.

We are by your side!

While social media and online communities like this certainly have value, I think they can create the dangerous assumption that happiness can be delivered, curated and dropped into your inbox.

Almost every good relationship IRL is a mirror, the energy in reflects the energy out. So to get the return you naturally want in closeness and companionship, you'll need to invest your own effort in building those bonds. I'd guess there are many organizations and affiliate groups at your school - sports, social, political, service, etc. - that would be good starting points.

Why not pick one and see what happens?

Well I actually cleaned more last night. My house is getting closer to being able to have people over. Also, working on raising my income level so I can afford to go to the yoga studio nearby & hit up the local dojo. Ive realized I'd rather be around fighters and stretchy people than the alternative.

My lifestyle is far from sedentary. I don't play video games or watch TV and I walk everywhere except to and from school.

Working out is what helped me the most, both for regaining the energy and focusing my thoughts on productive things in life. I have acquired a routine. I bought myself quality gym wear and developed a habit of visiting the gym three times a week, after my job. I made it a top priority in my life until I regain my energy and settle other aspects of my life.
It worked for me. I felt better about myself, I was more self-confident, and after some time I felt almost like all the worries evaporated alongside with my workout sweat. It's worth trying.
Or, if you are really not a fitness type of person, you can try to walk more and to spend at least an hour a day doing some exercises at home.

Sometimes vitamins help because you might be deficient in something that you need. Maybe, you are not getting enough quality rest. I am a high energy person and take my fitness seriously but I can definitely notice if I do not get enough quality rest. Good Luck
