Well i know im complaining and whining but this is just really bugging me. When i was in elementary school i was very popular, i had lots of friends, and i was very happy. But ever since high school i have been very depressed because i only have few friends which came with me from elementary school. I have not met any friends from highschool. I know i should talk to people more than i do but when i do talk to people i dont know what to talk about and ending up just stopping the conversation. Dont get me wrong im not really quiet or anything its just that i wish i have made more friends and even maybe a girlfriend. Like when i was in elementary school i guess you could say i was a class clown and i wasn't afraid of being loud. But now ive started to crack down and get good marks but its like it has to be one or the other for me and right now its grades. Ive considered going and sitting with other people at lunch but when i think about it i just back down being afraid that they will look at me wierd. I guess ultimately im afraid to talk to people because i think that they will think im a loser and i will scare them away for good and that my worst fear.

So every so often now im will be sitting down and thinking about this and i get really worked up and i get mad sometimes taking it out on others and ****. Im just really worried with myself right now because i want to make the most out of highschool but am having a hard time doing it.

And then on top of all of this their is this one kid who a real prick and that is full of himself who thinks i am a loser which doesn't bother me but whenever im around other people he will saying some smart ass comment about me being gay or something and he says i talk "smack" about him which i dont. And then fo course theirs another kid who heard that i said he was a ****ty guitarist when i actually think hes pretty good now hes mad at me. Basically high schools been nothing but plesant for me.

So anybody going through the same **** that i am? i know im bitching but i really needed to get that off my chest.

People suck. If you can make it through life alone, by yourself, even if those around you are trying to be friendly you will be fine. Just learn to control your problems by yourself, without the help of others and life gets easier. We all got issues. Fight your way through it. Life sucks.

Just be yourself. You will soon learn that you can only depend on yoruself cuz everyone else in the world will do somthing to upset you/p**s you off etc.

Family are your only friends

thanks alot guys, its calming to see that im not the only one who feels this way. And i always say that im gonna start over the next day but the fact is that its hard. And i really dont want mr marks to go downhill either. But i am trying pretty hard now so hopefully things will change.
#17
Dude, high school doesn't mean ****. Start getting high before class and you'll have no worries... I'm joking.
#18
Are you a freshman or what grade are you on?
Otherwise talk with friends of the friends you have so you get to know more people. That way you can talk about your friend or they probably will have similar interests than your friend and maybe you. I'm kinda stuck like you, between school/grades or having a lot more of friends. i have about 6-7 really good friends and a bunch of other people that I am kinda friends with them, but not really their best friends (if you understand me) as for girlfriends i am horrible with girls, and i haven't had a girlfriend since i moved to the U.S. 3 and a half years ago (but when i come to think about it i end up thinking is because i am a foreigner), so ...

I would say you're depressed tough i am no psychologist, just need to be more extrovert. (idk if its the correct word).

It's cool, everyone needs to vent once in a while. Here's some advice I can give you from personal experience.

First: The people you have around you now, keep them. I'm almost done a 5-year university degree, and I still talk to friends who I kept close through high school.

Second: The some jerk wants to be an ***, let him. Water off a ducks back. I know it may seem like a huge deal right now (been there, done that), but once you realize that in the grand scheme, it doesn't matter. Not everyone will like you, people will be jerks, just do what you can.

Third: Tell the guy you think he's a good guitarist. Clearing the air can never hurt.

People tell you high school is the best time of your life. I think that's a bunch of garbage. Things have gotten so much better since then. Keep your chin up, shrug off the idiots, and you'll do just fine.

I was like that for my freshman year of college. For a long time. Then, i got fed up with it. I had no one. I was 200 miles away from home. So i just prayed to god. All night. Then i could feel someone put their hand on my back, squeezing my shoulder. I didn't look up, i just continued to pray. Then after about and hour or so I got up and left. As i'm walking back to my dorm, i see this guy carrying an electric guitar. Not an acoustic like every one else had. I ran over to him and introduced myself, and we became best friends.

So later I'm talking to someone who was in the chapel with me that night.
And she said that no one put their hand on my shoulder that night.
It was just me.


Just though I'd share this.

**GOES BACK ON TOPIC**

Okay dude,
You just need 3/4/5/6 friends who you know will have stand by for you no matter what. It's just findign the right people to interact with. And like I said just be yourself - if people think your cool they'll comunicate and if they don't think your cool then f**k them.
#28
just relax in high school, be yourself, dont adjust for anyone

as soon as you graduate and go to college, you won't see 98.5% of the people you went with and youll only keep a couple friends, then youll meet more people at college


i hated high school

i love college, work is hard, but the people arent fake like high schoolers

no offense

You should have still carried on...


And to TS...St.Loony is right...Don't be greedy with trying to have the most friends.
#30
Thanks for all your help guys. It helped me alot. I think ultimately i just gotta talk some more and stop worrying about people thinking im strange. But just let me say this out of experience:

Dont be a dick and put somebody down for anything. Because that one prick who thinks hes so cool actually isn't. Always allow somebody to hang out with you guys if you notice their trying to become friends with you because i know from experience how hard it can be.

Oh also, if you want to meet new people join a club or sport or a group or take a class were people stay throughout their high school years like band or orchestra.

Then try another sport or talk to the people on the team, you're bound to talk b/c of teamwork. Otherwise like people said before if your friends are really good friendfs then you dont really need that many other friends and you are going to fell lonely from time to time (like me) so just talk to more people.

Jeeze, I feel exactly like you do. Everybody tells me it's my fault because I'm being shy, and I guess part of it is my fault, but going to a new school where you don't know anyone is ****ing hard. Like Joe Dirt says, keep on keepin' on.
