HI Jaqiem <br />
Silence does not communicate anything other than silence. Do not read into it anything or you can make yourself miserable. Put yourself in social situations and you will interact naturally and make new friends. Of course always forgive all but cruelty which must be confronted.<br />
Best wishes<br />
you'll be alright. it really takes some time for us to know who our real friends are in this world.
That's awful. I empathise, because the same thing happened me to too. I learned to be happy on my own.
It happened to me after I graduated from high school. After a while, I noticed that my old friends didn't bother contacting me even after I contacted them. To cope, I kept myself occupied. The things I did with my friends (shopping, seeing movies, going for walks in the park, etc..) I did by myself. I spent hours in the library, in the park... Appreciating time alone. My natural introversion facilitated this. Nonetheless, it still hurt. I felt bitter about my 'friends' for a while, but soon I forgot about them. Yes, I've been called 'antisocial', but I've learnt to not care.
