    I was feeling a little bit lonely recently - my studies got in top of me and I was feeling a little isolated socially. I said on Facebook to some people that I felt that I had no friends - all of the academic pressure was making me a bit unwell before my assignments were spaced out. They responded 'if you think you have no friends then you are wrong. Look up the definition of friend in a dictionary and apply it to people you know'. Another said to me 'you do have friends and can talk to me anytime' My question is how can these people be so confident that I do have friends? They're no longer with me (i.e. We separated geographically and I haven't saw these people for a long time - I hadn't spoken to either of these people for nearly a year before hand and then probably a year or two before that). Immeresing myself in studies can at times makes me feel lonely, and in the absence of people immediately around me, I can feel that I have no friends. I don't really speak to people anymore from school anymore and get very few messages by text/social media. How can these people say that I 'do have friends' and 'if you think you have no friends then you are wrong' when I can feel so lonely and friendless at times?
