    They Quit Calling Me

    not long ago, a high-school mate's mother passed away. Despite the fact that most of the class and i are facebook friends, and they all know this, and all of the kids who went to his junior high went to the funeral, and that several of his junior high mates and i are friends...

    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...

    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...

    No one sticks around long.

    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 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 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...

    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...

    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...
