    Go If You Must!

    Just don't expect me to roll out the welcome mat when you decide to come back. You made your choice and I made mine.

    I don't know what to do anymore.

    I'm sick of being alone in a room while my friends are having the time of their life. But I don't know how to interact with them. They never listen to me. They're always quick to go somewhere but don't invite me. Hell, even my own damn girlfriend barely pays me any attention. I...

    Losing Friends

    I'm bored pretty much. What's it like to lose a friend? Pretty much the worst feeling ever. Especially when you were young and you didn't actually know what was happening and all you thought was, " oh, she's leaving, okay." and you didn't actually know you're never going to see...

    I think it's because they're all

    so busy with their own lives. I try to keep in touch with them and ask them to hang out but they all just say they're busy with work and school so I don't bug them anymore.

    As of now I don't get

    that sad when I lose friends because I'm used to it. I'm what you call a mover so I either move every year or 2. I can never keep friends. I either lose them by moving away or just what I say and they don't like it. I'm a quiet person and whenever I open my mouth about something...

    Another one left me,

    but i will not expain why. I think i care too much, for strangers....which is creepy and they doesnt understand my care. But if i care so much in real life, i get ignored aswell. Maybe i should back off and be ignorant, like everyone else is.

    away from me. When my "friends" use to do things they always excluded me . They never thought to invite me to water parks, restaurants, and movie nights with them . It's like they always forgot about me or I just didn't matter . Now they only text me when they need something . I...

    I have dealt with an abnormally large amount of drama with "friends" lately. I think I finally believe its my fault. There is something about me that is making everyone hate me. I don't know what it is. I have tried to figure it out. But at the same time I know I need to find...

    Friends Forever?

    I've only ever had one best friend my entire life. She's influenced me and is the reason why I do most of the things I do today. She inspired me to write and just be myself. I wasn't a happy child but when I met her, I just became happy all of a sudden. I loved her, she was my...

    I am crying as I am writing this. My heart is broken once again by people that I "thought" were my friends. I can still recall as a child seeing my "friends" trying to hide that they were getting together without me. It is still happening to me now in my 40's. Being social...

    MY whole life, I've always had a decent amount of friends and only 1-2 close friends. But every time someone gets close to me, we just seem to drift apart and never bother to contact each other.  My soccer friends, my on-line gaming friends, primary school friends...
