no past memories with friends i have now - July 8th 2011, 01:20 PM

just this is somethin that kinda upsets me at times(altho im only 20 so it really shouldnt but it just does) well i start hanging out with a group who live in same neighbourhood as me. i know all of them since i was little but only start hanging out with them in last year and a half becoz i had to stay back a year in school so start hanging with a guy in my year whose like the leader of the group.

i had friends before but for few reasons like them moving away or falling out i found myself alone for a few years which really sucked.

now that im friends with them i just feel ive missed out on a lot because they have all been friends since they were like 11 or 12. its like every memory i have no, everything i was before(ok this might be a good thing) counts for nothing. and you know the way the older you get you dont really hang out like the way you do when your 14/15 so it upsets me i missed out on this time as myself.

i guess im just lookin for reassurance becoz its not like i didnt have fun when i was at those ages its just i wish my friends now wudda been around in those days.

You cant go back in time (if only...) so just be grateful that you have great friends now. True friends are far and few between so hang on to them Good luck!

Honestly, I think the previous poster gave the best advice you could possibly receive. =) There's no point in dwelling on the past. Yeah, it kind of sucks that you don't have the same childhood memories that your friends do... but you're not the only one who's lost touch with childhood friends. I certainly don't keep in touch with any of my friends from elementary school, let alone middle or even high school! My friends come and go - and they'll probably continue to do that for several more years, since I'm a college student and can't really "settle down" for a while. My life will continue to change, and yours probably will as well. Focusing on the past and what you've missed out on isn't going to help - so focus on the future and all the people you can meet NOW instead!
