    Why do people have to be such dicks all the time? Why can’t people just accept that we aren’t all the same and we aren’t all outgoing and stuff. Why is there so much pressure on young people to be this social, perfect, aesthetic person with loads of hobbies and humour and no issues at all? Why do some people think that others are inferior or superior to themselves and that there should be certain cliches that stick. Or 6 Instagram posts only else you’re attention seeking. Why do we need loads of friends to indicate wether or not we are worth other people’s time? And why do people think
    It’s ok to make you think they are your best friend, and when someone popular shows up, they start kissing their shoes and ignoring the people who helped them through hard times and abuse and bullying. They just forget. Over and over again this has happened to me. I’ve lost so many friends, It’s not only that. I have crippling anxiety. I can’t do anything without having a panic attack, but no one even knows, they would care anyway. Why am I like this? Why can’t I just be social, and popular, and pretty?? Why do I have to be me?!?????

    You're making it worse by saying this you know. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and make a change if you're unhappy. Sorry if it's harsh but you probably need to hear it.

    This is life after all. I know it's painful and difficult, but you need to lower your expectations. The lower your expectations, the easier will it be for you! Most of us are like that; not only our family, friends and relatives but sometimes also OURSELVES. It's better to be yourself from the beginning rather than pretending to be someone with a lot of friends, or someone who's super beautiful because you can't hide it for long. So don't worry, a lot of people go through the same thing as you.
