    I Wish I Had Friends

    I don't know how else to put this: I am lonely. I have no one to talk to about anything. I feel depressed all the time. I am great at hiding my emotions and have been so good at it for so many years I don't know how to act "myself" anymore. This might be the reason I don't have...

    I Was Popular.

    I used to have lots of friends. I was the loud, out-going, happy-go-lucky kid. I was on the student council, I never really went to parties but I was always hanging out with other kids and just having fun... Then school got serious and not as many people wanted to know anymore...

    When Did I Go Wrong?

    I was wildly popular in high school. I wasn't popular with boys, but I had more friends than I can possibly list. I got a degree in theatre from a good school, but my parents lack of support filled me with self doubt and I settled for a mundane job in retail after graduation. I...

    Disappointments

    I lost all my friends when I got bullied. They were just people who knew me; shallow-level friends. I kept with two of my friends, and in high school, made friends with a few other people who would talk to me and not be worried about their social status plummeting. But now, they...
