Where Are All My Friends?

I used to have friends. I promise that I did. In fact, when I was younger, I was actually one of the ‘popular kids’. That was until I moved house and school and I started getting bullied and became the opposite of popular.

Even when I lost most of my friends, I still had a couple of people who stuck by me and were still great friends. But they just aren’t around anymore.

While growing up, we make mistakes. Some of those mistakes can mean that you lose certain friends and some of those mistakes can be important life lessons. Unfortunately for me (without going into too much detail), I lost a lot of friends while I was growing up and trying to find myself.

So where does that leave me now? Well.. it leaves me 21 years old and absolutely, well and truly, friendless.

Does that matter though? Apparently it does and sometimes I think it does too? At least I have my boyfriend who will (hopefully) always be there for me.

I also have internet friends who I love lots! I always welcome new internet friends so never be afraid to say hi.

    So glad to read that I’m not the only one. I too had loads of friends growing up and I drifted away from them all! It sometimes effects me but at the end of the day I have my family and my boyfriend so I’m happy!

    I went through this in my mid twenties. Suddenly felt totally adrift and without friends. I’m now in my mid thirties and have a few really really good friends. I love it this way -!its taken a while but I have people in my life that I actually want to spend time with

    I lost pretty much all of my friends after I graduated high school it used to bother me but I have two sisters who are there for me. It’s so hard to make friends in your twenties unless you go to school, isn’t it?. If you ever need someone to talk to feel free to talk to me. ♥

    I feel you I really do I don’t really have anyone here but my family and the closest friends I have are my internet friends who live the other side of the world from me. It’s really hard to meet people and make friends when you’re an adult especially if you’re like me and suffer a lot from social anxiety but I find the people you do meet whether online or IRL you make better connection with than in your youth. If you ever need a friend feel free to chat to me xoxo

    The people who matter in life will always stay by your side. Remember that as you continue your story, you will lose people who were only meant to be in one chapter. —https://emilyryannblogblog.wordpress.com/

    I hardly have any friends. It’s never been easy for me to make them. That said I have some amazing online friends, two of them that i’ve been lucky enough to meet and spend time with!

    I feel the same way!

    Sometimes I think it’s actually harder to keep friends, especially when they don’t really want to be apart of your life.

    My best friend is my boyfriend and that’s all I want! I found myself wanting to spend my time with him over anything else and four years later I am still doing that! (And now have friends with his friends and so on…)

    Friends come and go, just stick with the people you love and it will all come together in the end.

    I struggled making friends when I was in school, which was partly down to bullying and because people often made me feel like an outsider due to my connections with the Deaf community. Whilst I made a great group of firm friends at university, we’re now all scattered about the country and I don’t often get the chance to meet them as often as I like. As I have no friends that live very locally, I do often feel lonely and isolated. I’ve learnt to live with it but sometimes it hits at odd points of the day and night, and it sucks.
