friend help pls - May 18th 2018, 11:23 PM

So my first year in high school is almost over, and I finally started to open up to people this year, therefore I was able to make actual friends that I could talk to about things.
Recently, I feel like they don't want me around them. I stress about this a lot, as I learned that my middle school friends didn't actually like me all that much. But I really feel like they're trying to distance themselves from me. It's all really varied, like one will have periods where if he sees his girlfriend, he'll just go off with her, even if I'm talking to him. Then a couple weeks later he's actually replying to my messages and making an effort to talk to me. The other one has just not been talking to me at all recently.
I'm sure it's all in my head, but I just want some second opinions, please and thank you.

It's good that you've been able to open up and make some friends in your first year of high school. You said that one of them tends to go to his girlfriend; perhaps he wants to spend time with her and doesn't realize how it could make you feel when he walks away (when you're still talking to him). Has your other friend been up to anything recently? Maybe he or she has a lot on their mind or something. Just know that there are a lot of reasons as to why they may be distant and it might not have to do with you.

You said you felt similarly when your friends in middle school didn't want you around anymore and it is possible that you feel similarly again and are a
little hesitant because of what you went through before.Maybe you can distract yourself and your mind and kind of let things unfold on their own; see where it goes.
