    Going through a tough phase.
    I am 21 years old, I recently graduated and started a new job in a completely new city, I am dealing with PTSD (triggered by painful memories when I come back home to visit my family), social anxiety and GAD (which I have had since I was 16), on top of this I am going through my first breakup (only been 2months), and I am tearful , feel like I have no friends. I feel like everything is going wrong and I worry too much about my family members and their health and wellbeing. Is this just a phase? How can I stop revisiting past memories and move on and make new friends and be happier? I am seeking professional help and going to the gym and yet it is very difficult to remain optimistic.

    Very sorry to hear you are having to endure this. As an old veteran of battles with depression and anxiety, I can tell you that there is every reason to remain optimistic. Do not give up.

    I’m not sure if you’re in the U.S. but if you are, have you tried joining a networking group? People with varied occupations meet regularly, and introduce themselves. Then, if you need an accountant, you may call someone from your group. It’s a great way to meet people, and your expertise can help others. Also, find a volunteer opportunity that interests you. You’ll meet people and feel good knowing you’re helping others.

    You will be okay as you get through this rough patch. Why did you and your boyfriend break up? Who dumped who? it's always hard to stay optimistic when a relationship ends. I just cry until I get tired of crying.

    Hey guys can cry! So cry if you want. It's okay for girls too.
