So lately I've been in a weird mood and I don't like the feeling at all. Since I finished high school I felt this. It is a mix of different feelings, not seeing school friends anymore, no more test worries, no more competitive school problems, no more trying to be tougher than the other guys, or depending on parents. Its like now I have to make my own life and I have to start from NOWHERE which makes me feel scared even though I won't give in.
I feel like I have matured a lot in just a few months. My way of thinking has become very different as if I have experienced something like spiritual awareness.

It's hard to explain, but any of you have had this feeling after you finished high school and have begun to create your own place in this world?

I've been out of school for over a year now and I know exactly what you mean. Life seems kinda empty when you don't see everyone every day.

I'm sure going to catch that when I'm finished somewhere next year. I like the people at my school.

You don't try to be tougher than the other guys to be cool now, you do it so they don't beat your ass and rob you. That shit gets you back in the gym ha ha ha.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

I'll be done with school soon and I'll probably never see many of my friends again. I'm greatly dreading the idea of having to start over - make new friends, build a reputation and acquaint myself to a new atmosphere. I know the feeling of emptiness is approaching and I've decided to take it like a man

I'm 24 and I ****ing hate it, haha. I knew I was going to feel that way though. I started getting prepared for it my Junior year. You can't really prepare for it enough though. You go from seeing a lot of people you know, everyday, to you, living your own life, without seeing all the friendly faces. It does give you an empty feeling and it will make you feel older than ever before.

Now all I can think about is how much quicker time flies by now.
To be at peace would be a sin. It's surely unAmerican.

Are you going to college? I felt the same way you do for about 3 months, then I went to college and completely disregarded highschool.

I finished last week and I love it currently. I even deleted most of the people off my Facebook so that I don't have to see them at all.

It gets so much worse.

Once your communication and socialisation with your friends gets worse and more sparse, your life will feel alot more empty. I suggest becoming addicted to something or killing yourself.
...In my opinion.

No but I'm planning to go to Berklee college of Music next year, or probably the year after the next. I want to be a musician.
It's going to be one long road.

If I stay too quiet
I can hear her walking by
Death cold air is moving
Like the touch of her hand

ikuisesti hallussa surua,
pienentynyt enkeli, ottaa minuun,
johtaa minut tämän arvokkaan valoa,
ja ikuiseen pimeyteen.

It's not that bad, I got a job, met new people and I feel so much better. The first month or so was the worst.

Get a job. The people at your workplace will most likely become your friends.

I felt the complete opposite. Of course, I went to college the following September, too. I barely even remember what high school was like.
#15
Yep I had that. I graduated last year and was like, uhh now what? I did go to a good college and plan on being a lawyer, but still felt that emptiness. I have not seen my friends in a long time now. Nobody is going to hold your hand anymore.

I'm 16 and just got out of High School, and I agree, it sucks.

I can't really stand the thought, that I may never talk to some of my classmates ever again. At least it's a small town, so I oughta be able to keep in contact with them.

I think the biggest thing that I don't like, is that there's nothing to do, I don't feel like I'm accomplishing anything, and it's driving me nuts. :/
#17
I've had alot of frustration getting into college was a pain. They kept saying they needed more information. Now paying for college is a pain. I'm having trouble just getting enough loans...

Other than that I'm working all the time so I dont have the time to feel empty.

i had the same persisting empty feeling after graduation and beginning college. college, supposedly the best time of your life, was a major sh1tstorm for me as the empty feeling spiraled into full blown depression.

my advice: address it now before it impacts your future. usually the empty feeling means there's something that needs to be accomplished that you haven't gotten to yet. if you did everything you wanted to do in high school, you'd have no trouble moving onto the next stage, pm me if you wanna chat yea?

I've been out of school for a long time now. Looking back, that part of my life seems strange now. You're in the middle of a major life change. Life is full of them and they're always a little scary but there's always a lot of good things that happen. As long as you don't let fear or depression totally bring you down you'll learn to walk through the changes and life can be really good.

I pretty much loath 3/4 of my class, so i'm quite content with the fact that i don't have to be bothered by them again.

Ya it's definitely different. In high school you are sort of like-"What courses are my friends taking so I can take the same ones."

Once you finish high school it's really up to you to decide everything (majors, personal finances, where you live, future plans...) sometimes it's hard to know if you are taking things in the right direction at all. My advice is to try and find some really good friends rather than being sort of good friends with everyone. It's really important to have friends that will stick with you even when you go in different directions.

After I voluntarily left high school, I did not feel empty, but yet the feeling that the shackles had been freed ahd I could finally flourish into someone interesting for my own benefit. I was more worried about how I was going to take care of the plan to move out on my own before too long to care about "what course" someone was taking.

Yeah it kind of sucks, there are lots of friends that I haven't seen since last June. But at the same time I think I prefer only having a few close friends anyways. Hang in there man, you'll be fine!
