I suffer from mood swings a lot. I feel very depressed and lonely all the time. Like as if I am abandoned by the entire world. All people hurt me a lot even though I am sweet to them. I get hurt by small things, also I have terrible anger. I feel I am not fit for this world. People only remember me when they need me for their selfish needs and then they forget me. It's hampering my studies a lot. I have also seen a psychologist but it didn't help. I would be obliged if by observing my symptoms, you diagnose my mental disorder. Please help.

Your mood swings are definitely of concern and that must be investigated. It may be caused by a serious developmental issue called Rejection. You seem to suffer from rejection from all and sundry to find it difficult to feel one with people. The solution to this is a matter of genuine self-acceptance or self-love. I am not talking about narcissism: this is a genuine love of yourself. It is not based on your appearance alone. You must work on developing yourself in five areas: the physical fitness, emotional fitness, intellectual fitness, social fitness and spiritual fitness. I would also suggest you attend a good personality development program, a speech training course (I suggest the Toastmasters Club), a conversation and elocution course, and to do a personal grooming course too. Education is very good to boost self-confidence, and together with that if you develop socialization skills, you will make it big. Meet with a counselor and ask to be trained in handling emotions, and that will just take you places. Read a lot and meet lots of people, even if you feel too conscious: in time you will get out of this backwardness very well. Do physical fitness exercises regularly. Ultimately, if you believe in God, you will know that you are so precious to Him that no one else’s opinion or acceptance is as important as His. Your life will change phenomenally! If the mood disorder is serious you can meet a doctor and determine the course of action, medically and therapeutically.
