"At age 32, I'm actually on the same boat as you, as I have struggled with the exact same problems. I was a maladaptive day dreamer since I was 12 years old. It doesn't help that I have Autistic Spectrum Disorder too, so that mixed with…"

"Finding a middle ground could be a start, but it won't be enough, if it's even possible. Don't be surprised if there is none to be found. The very existence of an idealized "you" came from the conflict between reality and…"

"And also I've read somewhere online that finding a middle ground between the real me and the idealised me can reduce mdd etc. I guess it's in the small achievable things."

"Oh cool. How was your job like? How did you get over nerves? I did some volunteering years ago, but I've kinda crashed and burned in these last 1.5 years and lost some of that confidence. And it's cool to see that people around my age also…"

"I have tried doing something like that a couple of years ago but it didn't go well as my social anxiety was much worse than it was today. I guess my frustration is actually the fact that some people I want to be friends with have actually have…"

"I get where you're coming from about the social/talent thing. I just feel like as young people it's a struggle if you're more on the quieter side as I feel "teen culture" is centred on being really sociable which can be…"

"Thx. I do kinda know why I daydream so much (unsatisfied with my life) and I have talked to my therapist about it. I know I can't force myself to be more confident or stop living a fake life but I'm willing to take steps towards leading a…"

"I totally agree with you, you seem to know a lot about this.  Ive been thinking of why I have md too but I can never get to a definitive answer... Ive never suffered of a huge trauma that would do this so I just feel ungrateful to my real life,…"

"The teen years are so hard — please be kind to yourself! You have decades ahead of you to work and learn social skills. Don't try to rush it. Social skills, like any other skill, take time and practice. My recommendation is to pick one…"

"IMO, the person posted above give very constructive suggestions which I had agreed most of his post, and usually it is hard to give better advice than his(for me, coz I am still relatively young and suffering MDD also). However, I notice a worth…"

"You can't just force yourself to have a social life and be more confident. It just doesn't work. It would actually make things worse, because you're putting even more pressure on yourself, which I'm guessing is the last thing you…"
