Ok so I graduated this year....big deal right wrong ever scence I graduated it feels like my friends and even my life at home has gotten well horrible. I mean I work all the time and soon im going to be going to a 6 and a half week school and live wit my aunt a half hour a way for the time im in school. I feel that every time I txt my friends even the ones who havent graduated yet havent txted me back as much as usual. I feel like no one cares anymore... I mean my mom does but I dont really get to talk to her much anymore cause when she gets home from work im at work...I just dont understand why my friends are acting like the way the are. Is there somthing wrong with me or something? I havent been verry good at like makeing new friends or geting into new relationships.

As tears fall from my eyes,I realized I didn't know them as much as I knew everyone else,Yet what I knew was they where apart of me in different ways,And as I watched them be put in the ground,Their spirits floating,Apart of me went with them...........You will forever be missed and loved...Never forgotten

Well, your maturity could be one reason why your friends don't feel like they can connect with you. Maybe they're doing things over the summer break that they know you won't approve of or want to participate in, and that's why they're not bothering to contact or invite you.

But in all honesty, it may be much more simple than that. The summer break is just beginning for a lot of people, and during the first couple of weeks, people tend to "lose it". They get caught up in a whirlwind of activities with family members or their closest friends, and they may neglect their other friends in the process. I'd give it some time, and if they're STILL not replying to your text messages by the end of July... well, I guess you'll have discovered who your REAL friends are.

I remember that things felt strange when I graduated from high school as well. I found it difficult to keep in touch with friends, because they were all busy getting ready for college. The ones who weren't didn't really want to be around us, because they knew we'd be moving soon and they didn't want the "good-bye" to hurt as badly. Basically, they started distancing themselves emotionally, in preparation for our departure to college. Your friends could be doing something similar.

I wish you all the best, and feel free to PM me if you ever want to talk. =)
