Try this: What you described is completely normal. Make sure those in your life inspire you, as compared to making you feel worse. And do the same for others. Encourage and express appreciation for those around you - peers or not. You will find that it comes back to you in ways you never imagined. You are a wonderful, unique person with your own talents and abilities. Love and be loved. God bless.

Lots: An old saying many therapists repeat is "act as you would like to become". Taking care of oneself, managing and meeting responsibilities and goals, caring for others, having a positive attitude, persevering, exercising, loving and being loved all can help.
