I almost posted this in the obesity section. However, since it is partly fueling my current depression I decided to put it here. I am in the process of losing weight as a new year's resolution. The primary reason I am wanting to do this is for another one of my resolutions, to get a girlfriend. It am tired of being lonely, which is another part of my current depression. I have since convinced myself that the odds of me getting into a relationship are extremely low. This is now having an effect on my motivation to want to lose weight. I know there are health reasons to do so, and that is probably the only reason I am continuing to try. My main question is, is it right to want to be in a relationship so badly that it has become the main, and nearly only, reason I want to better myself in some way? Bruce Lee once said, "Life is a constant process or relating." Is there something wrong with me that I want to be with someone so badly? If anyone happens to read this and has any thoughts or advice, it would be much appreciated. I'm tired and need sleep now.

I am in a fog and I'd like to know, how do you all overcome your depressive slumps.
I feel like I’m hopeless I’m this world, like I have nothing else worth fighting for. I’m so hurt inside I feel heavy hearted everyday. Everyday I wish I was dead. I feel like I have a 1,000 pound weight on my back and everyday it’s crushes me more and more. I just want to feel cared for. Idk if I can keep living this way.
