Will I ever belong? - November 5th 2011, 07:31 PM

OK, so basically, I have a group of friends (6 of us including me) and they're all nice people, kinda crazy but nice. The problem is they're all very loud, confident and in-your-face kind of people (not in a bad way), which I'm not (I'm shy, quite, totally unconfident, very sensitive). So, I'm having a hard time feeling like I belong or that I have a place. A lot of the time I just feel like a side order, if you know what I mean? Or some spare part- I'm there but no one really needs or wants me. I have been very upset a number of times about this in the past because if I'm not with them I have no one. Sometimes I wonder if I'm being clingy but I don't like being alone.

There is sorta more to the story, but I've already written quite a bit so, thank you for reading this if you have and any advice or tips is great!

I am the same way. I don't like feeling left out from a group. Which is why I normally just have a couple good friends. I am a really clingy person too. But you just have to be careful because it could push them away. And just know that you fit in with them for different reasons. Obviously they want you there or they would shut you out. Maybe try just opening up more to them or a person in the group. It should help you feel like you belong. Hope this helps!
