I Feel a Little Lost

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 285 People

    It's natural to want to belong somewhere,

    but being friendless isn't doing anything for me, I want someone that can make me feel like I belong, that will be my friend. But I can't really have a friend, since I've failed at it for so long it's seemingly impossible to make a friend.

    I don’t want to go to college

    but I also don’t want to NOT go to college What I really want is to stop existing but you can’t do that without dying and I don’t want to die either. I don't know what to do.
