Unhappy No one listens - February 21st 2011, 02:34 AM

My whole life I have felt like an extra or third wheel or something. It doesn't feel like I have any best friends. Like I have friends who I consider to be my best friends, but it seems like they have friends who are more important than me and they don't consider me a best friend. No one calls me to hang out, no one texts me, it seems like no one ever wants to talk to me unless they have to a.k.a. in person at school. That may seem like a really petty and stupid problem but it hurts so much. I am going through a lot of difficult things and I need to talk to someone but it seems like no one cares enough about me to listen. And I don't feel like I can talk to my family because they think I am through with everything and that I'm fine now but I'm not, I'm just worse. No one cares at all. Even when I did try to talk to someone, they didn't seem to give any real advice. I wish I had better friends. I hate my life.

but these are days we dream about
when the sunlight paints us gold
and this apartment could not be prettier
as we danced up there alone..

Hey Bridget,

I think everyone reaches a time in their life where they do wonder about friendships. How you're feeling is not uncommon and most people have felt like this at one stage in their life.
When you're young it's all about finding your own 'click' and fitting in with a group of people, and I'm not going to lie being a teenager isn't always easy, at times you do find yourself questioning a lot about your life.

Do you try and arrange things with your friends? Do you ask them if they want to hang out, or if they want to come over to your house? If you don't then maybe try arranging something with them all, make a special effort just to do something with them, you may be surprised that all it took was a little bit of organisation.
Maybe you could speak to your friends about the way you're feeling, they may not have even realised that you were feeling like this.
Try to be honest, it gets you a long way sometimes!

I can understand the difficulties you are experiencing with your parents, I think sometimes they forget that at one stage they were worrying about the same things and going through similar situations themselves, all those years ago when they were a teenager. I think parents usually just assume that their child is exagerating the situation and it isn't as bad as they are making out. If you feel like you need to speak to your parents then you should be able to.

I would definitely suggest doing something, some kind of activity that helps to boost your confidence, maybe take up some kind of a class, or a group of some kind, just so that you build up your own self confidence and maybe get to meet some new people along the way.

I'm always here if you need to talk,

Hi Bridget
Aww, i'm sorry *hug*
You could try making some new friends, it would at least improve your confidence a bit try joining LOTS, get out as much as you can! Clubs or groups or lessons for things you might enjoy.
Also, remember people DO care. They might not be able to help you right now, but i'm sure at least someone in your family loves you. Remember to be happy that you have a group of people that you can spend lunch times with in school- the rest is all about studying for the future! I promise you someday you WILL have someone who cares a lot, and you will be very happy. This is just a down right now- and for now you at least have TH, we care
