this is my first time doing one of these, so please bare with me. I've been feeling really alone lately. I mean, I have a good life, a great one. But sometimes it seems that it's never really enough. Maybe me just beginning high school has triggered this feeling. I don't feel like I can talk to anyone about it. I don't have very many friends. I used to have a lot, but they have all drifted away from me. They all go to a different school as me now, but last year it seemed as we were inseparable. I go to a magnet school and they go to the school I was going to go to instead of my current school (if that makes sense). So if I wanted to, I could go to the same school as them. But I really don't think thy're the reason for me being unhappy. Plus I can't depend on them for the rest of my life, so what's the point? I just don't feel like I have anyone there for me. Sometimes I just tell myself I'm seeking attention and that's normal for a teenage girl, but I've gone without attention for as long as I can remember (I'm generally a shy person, more of a follower than a leader). Also, my biggest fear is losing people. I can't stand to see people drift away from me. I don't know what to think anymore, I don't feel like i'm the same cheerful person as I was one year ago. Nothing is going my way and I feel like i'm falling apart. Help?
