You can make the same change, by doing something you love and finding people who love the same things as you. If you can be confident in what you do, that will change your life dramatically in all aspects. You will be able to wake up with a brighter face, a better attitude and people will take notice and respect you more. I'm not only preaching this; IT IS reality. Try your best to find something that makes you happy and get outside and do it. Also doing a new hobby helps. Anything from Yoga, to riding a bike around, or looking at your laptop in the park, will help you become a healthier more happy person.
In relation to jobs, try everything, take up your friends offers, don't feel guilty, be grateful! If you work your tail off at a job good things will happen

This is a lot but I tried giving general advice, if you expand on your specific situation I might be able to help more
My self confidence is really only a problem with work-related stuff, I'm very good with people fortunately
With regards to finding something that makes you happy, that is hitting the nail right on the head for me. Very hard for me to determine what I like (as opposed to what I don't like, that is easy ). I am in fact working at that, and it is slowly getting better. (I did apply for a job aswell )
Thanks for your insights, I appreciate it.
