Unhappy Apathetic? - January 29th 2009, 12:03 PM

I haven't been in the habit of having a best friend since about 6th grade, since I lost 2 of them and felt like trying to find someone else would be too much work.

Over the last few months, though, something happened and I started to get really close to one of my hallway-friends...we talked all day most days, and saw each other whenever possible.

Then I kind of started to go downhill as far as my attitude towards my life and some days lately I find it easier to space out and forget where I am than to talk to anyone. Even her. She took/takes it really personally, and thinks I don't care anymore even though I've told her differently. I know I deserve whatever she thinks since I know I look apathetic- I have trouble keeping promises to her. But I'm not, at all.

basically I'm asking should I leave her alone till I'm *better* or attempt another confrontation/talk? I'm afraid to do either one because I feel like i've half lost her already.

Hii Marissa
Sounds like you really care for this girl, so I think you should have another stab at it.
You're scared you've half lost her, but if you don't try and explain it, you're supposed apathy might drive her out for good. When you told her about the zoning out and whatnot, did you explain other things that factored in? It might help her understnd if you feel you can eaborate a bit, and draw you closer as friends.
I think you might both be in need of someone to talk to, someone to care.
Hope that helps, and I'll check back soon!

(Ohh, on an unrelated note, watch putting your full name on the internet, teenhelp is a great place, but there is always the possibility of people who -aren't- quite so nice as the majority of the gloibal population!)
