    I am in year 11 and leaving behind the majority of my 'friends' at my old school and moving to a different college, where 1 or 2 of the girls are going to the new college, one that i'm close to. I already know a group of people who are close friends with my on/off boyfriend for a year. I have changed to try and fit in with these new friends, they're great people and much nicer than the people at my current school who constantly left me out and talked about me behind my back. However, I feel like I'm a burden to this new group and wonder whether they even want to be friends with me. After years of being pushed out then close in a cycle to the girls at my school I am so paranoid of this new group. We go to a lot of parties together and go out on weekends as a group but I don't know whether they feel forced into not leaving me out because of my boyfriend is best friends with some of the girls. Also if we have an awful argument i would probably have no one of my side. I constantly get too worked up over small things and hate being left out, but i can see myself just being dropped...

    You're their friend, trust me, if they saw you as a burden, they wouldn't invite you out to parties.

    They are your friends but they aren't that close to you. Maybe you shouldn't just focus on your ties within the group but to find other friends outside the group that you can get close with.
