Social anxiety, depressio
I have social anxiety, awkwardness and depression. Going to crowded places is a big challenge. I cannot go out of my home. I have very less friends. Also have poor academics. I have been failing all along my life. I don't know how to come out of this. I have absolutely zero confidence.

You are already successful by writing in this forum. You have gained a great confidence to appeal here. May be due to some childhood pattern you could have developed those behaviours.  Don't worry.  Do consult a professional in your city and learn to come out of this issue at the earliest. You might wonder about yourself  later.

Dear sir, Please realise that you are suffering from a common problem which does have a fantastic solution too. You have symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders in a combination of one facilitating the other. The best thing for you to do would be to meet a psychiatrist and get yourself assessed thoroughly. Once that is done, your treatment can be elaborately planned and carried out for best results. TREATMENT IS POSSIBLE.
