I’m 29, living with my parents, single for 3 years, was jobless (luckily found a job this week, the salary is not good though), and depressed (you can read about my first post).
Most of my friends are married and have children, earning good money, and happy with their lives.
I’m trying to come out of depression myself, feel ashamed to go to a doctor.
I think that this is a phase of life which will eventually pass and you are not alone.

Thank you again and I appreciate your efforts in helping out people here.January 11, 2017 at 4:13 am #125040
Thank you for your motivating words.
I wish this setback phase doesn’t last too long.January 9, 2017 at 9:24 pm #124979
Thank you anita. You are right.
Yes, I’ve learned many lessons in last 6 months. I’ve come out of my comfort zone to see what life is like, seen the world from a different perspective, came to know about my strengths and weaknesses.
I’m looking for a job in both teaching and the corporate sector. Teaching jobs here don’t pay much, and I have an MBA degree which can be of use in a company.
Let’s see where life takes me now.
Thank you all for your advice.January 9, 2017 at 5:23 pm #124966
I think that I was living far from reality. I had a dream but no planning. I don’t know if I had a goal. I was not using my brain, just listened to my heart.January 9, 2017 at 5:12 pm #124965
@ Nina Sakura
I went there on a permanent residence visa. I worked as a teacher in my home country. Teaching is regulated in Canada so I thought of changing my sector. I got a job in retail but it was part time and the wage was poor. I found it difficult to adjust there. No friends, no relatives, unfriendly people. I had nobody to talk with and share my feelings. it turned into a circle which I found hard to come out.
There are better prospects in my country. I’ve been applying for jobs but nothing happened yet. But I know that I will have to start from the beginning, competing with a 24 year old fresh graduate. This means that I have to delay my marriage and have kids later in my life.
Thanks for motivating me.January 9, 2017 at 4:57 pm #124962
My family is taking care of me. They want me to get healthy again. They tell me to wait for the right time and that I’m not a burden on them.January 9, 2017 at 8:40 am #124927
My dream was to live in a developed country.
The problem was my loneliness. I was also worried about my family as my parents are getting old. They got sick after I left them.January 9, 2017 at 7:53 am #124923
I’m unhappy here but not because of my family. I do not feel lonely when I’m with them and they support me. I was unhappy with my country.
I don’t know what makes me sad. Maybe my failed dream. Maybe it has become a habit to be depressed. Maybe because I don’t have a job.
I sound very confused and irritating but only I know how I’m feeling right now. This has never happened to me before. Maybe god is punishing me or testing me.
I’m sorry for being like this.January 8, 2017 at 9:08 pm #124898
I think it was an unrealistic dream. I was just living in my own world of dreams. I came to know about life’s realities after leaving home. But I think that I got too late to realize it. I should have thought about my family and my future before taking that big step.
