Does Facebook ever make you depressed?
I don't know if it makes me depressed, but it sure can make me feel extremely bad. Sometimes, it's hard to read other people's statuses without tearing up.
Instead of being happy when someone gets engaged/gets married, I feel sad that the same thing is not happening in my own life.
Whenever someone has a baby, I feel the same way.
And the latest one...I can hardly stand to read about other people getting jobs(and those jobs actually working out for them!) I know it sounds bad but I hate it when they say...got an interview...and two or so days later they say "I just got hired!" And they actually get hours.
All I can say is "Got an interview." A few days later all I'm talking about is how, once again, I've been rejected.
I've been rejected so much in my life.
Many people have rejected me as a friend.
My former boyfriend rejected me as a girlfriend.
Employers have rejected all of my job applications.
I've basically been rejected as a human being, if you think about it.

Facebook=depressing?"Even though you may want to move foward in life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?"

2 of my friends are off abroad and posting photos of how great it is in Belgium and South Carolina.
Not so much depressed but jealous.
You talk a lot about being rejected. You should become an alcoholic.

hun try not to compare yourself to others, you're you and that's what matters, a lot of the time it's hard to think what's so great about ourselves but when someone else takes a step back it's so much easier for them to point out your great points. I barely go on FB just because i find lots of people only go on to argue or moan about their problems and i can't be done with it. I don't disagree i personally think the negatives in life easily out weigh the positives but i think that's maybe more of a reason to hold on to the good things that do happen

I don't get jealous much, but there has always been one lad I've always been particularly jealous of and probably most other people have as well. He was the most popular kid in school, everyone looked up to him, was a character in class, always had a girlfriend older than him, had a mx bike that he drove to school, drives a new corsa, works in Hollister, has a fake I.d and goes clubbing every week. Pretty much every Sunday you see him tagged in photos with older girls having an awesome time. And no homo but he's definitely good looking. Although I am jelous it doesn't make me feel bad, as I thought he was a cool guy and hats off to him because most people aren't like that.

I get jealous sometimes. For example, a few of my friends are studying abroad in Italy/Paris and I would've been able to if I had the proper funds for it, so I'm jealous of them. On the other hand, when my friends on Facebook post about their lovely relationships, it makes me want to punch them in the face while I'm really jealous, but in the end, I'm happy for them.We stopped checking for monsters under our beds when we realized they were inside ourselves

I just find it Facebook kind of pointless. I don't really get too jealous of people on there, maybe when they post a picture of a night that I wanted to go on or couldn't or are holiday. I wouldn't even call that jealousy and I don't resent them for it or wish in any serious way that I was them.
This is going to sound harsh but I really really think you need to hear it. I think you need to go to your doctor and talk to them about switching up you meds because the ones you have really aren't working for you or see if you can get some cognitive behavioural therapy or something. Just something that might help you on the way to feeling better about yourself. The CBT is a good step I think

I would sometimes find Facebook depressing when I used it more regularly. Things like seeing photos of friends at parties I wasn't invited to would make me feel bad. I gained a lot of peace of mind when I cut back my social media usage to only school related things.

This is so stupid, but I get depressed when I see that girls have all of these likes on their pictures because I'm lucky if I get more than one or two. Then I realize that they're wearing a shit ton of makeup, the shortest shorts they could find, and their tits are hanging out. Then I don't feel quite as bad.
