I feel lost and alone. I've reached out to friends and family but everyone is kinda busy these days. I'm feeling like I can't go on anymore. I'm in a dark place, I'm beaten down. What should I do next?

First and foremost, you must understand that you are never ever alone. Your friends and family may seem busy but it's websites like 7cups that are here to help you. What you should do next is to assess what is going on in your life. What is the main cause of the darkness of your life? If you can or can't pinpoint it, don't worry - just write down exactly how you feel. Writing out your emotions will help your mind relax and your stress levels will go down. After that, reach out to someone and ask for help. Call a helpline if loved ones aren't able to support you.
I understand. It sound more difficult than it is. Sometimes talking help other time working on self is better help. Alone time is perfect opportunity to do meditation, self care, learning new skills, developing skills to coping mechanisms. and it is the time when inner strengths kicks off when we focus. great opportunity to retreat mindulness and meditation. There are people surrounded with crowd, family and friends supporters but they find themselves alone. Not having someone listen to you isn't too bad. Talking out is a great therapy but still it depends on other. However, developing strength and not needing people for talking helps engage more friends.
You need to believe in yourself. I know it is hard, when you feel that everybody has given up on you and that you want to give up on them. But you need to trust yourself emotionally and physically. You need to know that only you can help yourself. Being trapped in your own mind with only yourself as the savior is tough and mentally exhausting. Listen to good music, read books, watch movies. You don't need them. In fact you're better without them. You can achieve so many things. You don't need people who exhaust you and make you feel bad about yourself.
