After leaving school watch

    Has anyone else found that when you leave school you figure out that you literally have no one you can call a friend anymore? You just seem to grow apart from them and find yourself alone. I am an introvert so I do like being on my own, but I just find it hard now to find the right kind of people who could be a friend to me. Does anyone feel or felt the same? Or have you any advice? I have never lost a friend over a fight, it just seems people don't give me enough time to really open or they cannot understand why I am not as talkative.

    Errm I guess when I leave places of education, I drift apart from many of my friends actually, but such is life eyy. Make friends, move on in life, keep like one close friend, make new friends, rinse repeat.

    The best advice that I can give is to get involved with as many social groups as you are interested in, so like when you move into college? then join as many clubs or after study activities that you are interested in, that way you'll meet like minded people. To be honest here, if you don't make yourself known, people would not come to you. It will take a bit of effort on your part but I believe in you
