    This past summer I've really lost my best

    friend. She's been hanging out with a mutual friend of ours because she works with her. She now talks like her and is always with her, it really hurts. Shes helped me through a lot of stuff and I've helped her through a lot too. I feel like I put all the effort into our...

    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...

    Lost Another One Today

    I ended this friendship.  He does not know it yet.  He will know it when he comes over wanting something and I don't answer the door.  he used me for the last time.

    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 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 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...

    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...

    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...

    Everyday there's a new person suddenly breaking

    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 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...

    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...

    Why?

    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...
