Unhappy I think I'm losing them..... - November 21st 2010, 03:52 PM

In the past year I've changed my look, it's completely opposite of what I looked like last year. I went from blonde hair, mascara and a teeny tiny bit of eyeliner on my eyelids, aeropostal clothes, and DC shoes to black hair, heavy eyeliner, hot topic clothes, and converse. All my friends look like I did a year ago, and I guess I'm kind of the loner of the group now. They used to talk to me, listen to what I say, and even acknowledge I was there. Now it's like they get shocked that I can talk, they ignore me, and I'm practically invisible around them unless I'm yelling. I know that most of them don't like people that look like I do now, and I know most of you are going to say "If they judge you on your looks then they aren't good friends and maybe you'd be better off without them." Believe me I've thought of that. But I'm going through a REALLY tough time right now, and I guess I don't want to lose my closest friends. I don't know what to do.

If I smiled and said I'm fine, would you look in to my eyes, and say "Tell the truth"?

Yeah, i'm going through pretty much the same thing so i totally understand what you mean. :|

Maybe talk to some other people and make other friends? You can keep your old ones for a while, but when you find new ones that actually are good friends for you, then it's easier to leave your old ones behind. That's all i can think of, hope it turns out all right for you.

I would talk to your friends about it. Be honest and open when you do. You should also try and get closer because you may have started to drift apart, it happens to a lot of friends sadly. Make some plans with them and hang out. I'm sure everything will work out

And here you are living, despite it all.

i know what you mean...have you tried talking to your friends about it? like confronting them with your concerns and telling them how much their friendships with you mean to you? idk if itll change anything, but itll let them know how youre feeling and what youre seeing...its worth a try!
