Your post is written eloquently enough to suggest you possess some level of intellect, that in itself puts you ahead of most people....just remember, life is too short. Don't be one of those people who look back and wish they would have done things differently.
Look upon physical and mental sufferings as gifts.
They bring their own lesson such as the temporalness of life, and the intrinsic worth of the eternal.
Do not become disheartened and alarmed when adversity, calamity and misfortune fall upon you, for those who have acquired the power of enduring adversities, can enter the spiritual path.
Do not fear suffering or blame others.
According to the law of the universe, all sufferings are your labour of love to unveil your real self.
In comparison to realising infinite bliss, all the sufferings and agonies you experience amount to practically nothing.

Wow, thank you everyone for all the supportive replies. You guys really aren't anywhere near as weird as I used to think you were, my perspective has now expanded.
I'm going to make it a point to friend you all since you are such beautiful people. Just yesterday I befriended a fish that belongs to my brother whose apartment I was taking care of while he was on a business trip, although I suspect the fish's affinity towards me was about him being dependent on me for his survival and not me personally. Still though, I'm not one to question fortune when it favors me .
A few of you have asked about my "brilliant idea" although I should warn you it is not so brilliant an idea and not even an idea. I won't keep those of you in suspense any longer. In short, I have visions that deal with recognizing where the force of reality is strongest by analyzing patterns of energy that occur in everyday life.
This is going to sound very insensitive, but really what happening to ATS that some guy can log on and say “I have no friends” and get 35 flags, its like the “look at my pretty picture threads” and the “I am the start child threads”, not what I joined ATS for. At the very least this should be in BTS.

If you have nobody to tie you down, maybe you should go on an adventure, like backpacking through Europe or Asia. Get lost in African villages, helping the poor. Not only will you make lots of friends on an adventure such as those listed, but it will also give your life purpose, while broadening your horizons. Go spin your wheels and live life to the fullest.
