I'm 17, senior in high school. I've come hear seeking advice to improve my current situation. When i was a sophamore, my cirlce of friends slowly fell apart and eventually completely broke up. To this day, I feel stranded and lonely and very much responsible for the breakup of the friendship. I feel responsible mostly because I was the most active one in the group. I guess everyone meet everyone through me and I held the group together. Well, in high school, it's almost inevitable that people make new friends. This happened for them but not for me. It seemed like we would be a stong group forever. I didn't like some of the new people introduced to the group, that's when everything went wrong. I started feeling more emotionally insecure. At times I felt I was being replaced and got sick of it and let my stubborn and angry side take control of me. I stopped communication with most of them and slowly lost touch. We broke up completely and none of us talk with each other. Since then, all of them made new friends except me. 2 years later and I still can't get rid of these feeling of betrayal. It seems like we all just grew apart and I branched off into solitude. What I want to know is how I can cope with this and make new friends? BTW.....GROWING UP SUCKS!!!!
