    Hey guys I’ve started a new school and I hung around with the popular girls since they were being really nice and I didn’t understand theyr switch up and be *****y. These girls are in most of my classes and I fell out with them since I wasn’t bullying a girl that they told me to harass.

    I took a few weeks off school being scared as to what they would do to taunt me I came back and was on civil terms on them they want to be close again but I just want to be able to bare them in lessons tbh, at break and lunch I clearly don’t fit in with them since they want arguments and I want to do extra work.

    Yesterday was my first day walking around the new school on my one, everyone has their own friendship groups or best friends and I have no one, I try making new friends but I don’t fit in with anyone so I’m on my own and I think I’m just going to sit in the library on my own tbh.

    I’m in year 10, so not long to go but I was always in the popular crowds since year 7, I’m a bright girl and I wanna do my work but some of these friends really hold me back so I don’t want friends like these in my gcse years but idk how to make new ones.

    I feel so alone, my mum said no friends is an easier life but why do I feel so down?

    - thanks

    Well I can't help with the friends issue, as I don't really have any proper friends.

    But if it is hard in your lessons because of them can you ask your head of year or whatever you have (head of a house group?) if you can move classes?

    Ive had the same situation . The truth of the matter is that my constant comfortability wouldve been friends who supported me for who I was, which was someone who was passionate about extra learning and I wanted someone to be around me to make it at least seem like I had company, but the truth of the matter is that if youre so engrossed in your learning, soon enough you will realise that you dont require anyone and you wont even notice. so dont stress it, you have goals and youre not going to be in year 10 forever, you have exams coming so just revise and let people do whatever they want. Trust me, you will be glad you did when you get good grades as opposed to some who prioritise friendships over learning.

    Yup I’ve done that I didn’t want to move classes since it’d make me look scared but I’ve moved away in seating plans x

    Thanks! Good to know I’m not alone and that’s exactly what I mean, rn it’s as if everything revolves around friendships and drama and I feel so alone idk
