Leaving school for the day, classmates pass by you. They’re chatting to their many friends, discussing how excited they are to be attending that upcoming concert. Other teens walk pass you, gossiping that Jill may like Mark, but Jill is Mark’s ex’s sister and then Mark, etc.
Everywhere you look, everyone is surrounded by a group of buddies. How does everyone except you have friends? Even one would be good at this point. Maybe you just weren’t meant to have friends.
These thoughts don’t stop you wishing you could have your own little group of buddies, supporting you and getting you through life’s troubles. But only the really confident, chatty teens get friends… right?
