Anonymous asked: I need your advice. At first, I thought it was just me hiding everything behind a smile. I've come to realize, when I'm with close friends and family, I actually am happy. I laugh a lot & I act all optimistic & everyone even realizes how happy I am because multiple people have told me, yet, when I'm alone, I think of everything bad in life & start crying. I think about how everyone is leaving me. I feel so alone. I can't sleep. Do I tell someone? What if they don't believe me? Idk what to do.
I know it can feel good to be around people, we’re social animals. sounds like you have some form of depression and it usually hits hardest when alone. Best to speak to a doctor or other health care professional.
