    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...

    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...

    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 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.

    Always Getting Kicked To The Curb....

    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...

    I Believe Its Me.

    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...

    I don't have many friends in life,

    because people keep leaving :(... I have resorted to not being myself and faking who I am to make friends because the real me according to people is to loud, to affectionate, and a very loud boisterous laugh. I post to much on fb or Instagram... Or send to many snap chats no...

    I Keep Losing Friends

    I like to think of myself as a loyal person, but i cant keep friends for long lengths of time. Most of my friends end up being out of my life because of life-choices. I have found that ever since highschool, whenever a group of my friends choices differ from mine, the...

    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...

    I do everything for them.

    I put them before myself. I fought with their bullies, befriended their friends, even if their friends were my bullies. I was their teacher when they couldn't study. I gave them everything I had to make them comfortable, even if it wasn't affordable/economical to me. But people...

    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...

    Everyday there's a new person suddenly breaking
