  • Am I a sucker?

    The nicer I am to people, the less they help me. Yet, I don't want to change who I am just for friendships or help with my problems. I wonder if eventually people will see what a nice person I am and want to be my friend, or maybe I am a sucker. Should I treat people the way they treat me? Or just be myself, know that no one will help or care, but remain true to myself, and lower my expectations of others? Or should I try to find other friends altogether?
  • Gosh, I'm confused-

    Hello!! I'm new here- ^^ So, recently I've been having troubles with eating. I'll go from moments of eating normally, to eating nothing, to eating everything and because of that, all of my friends think I'l lying when I say I have bad eating habits. Due to them accusing me, others ALSO think I'm lying about my anxiety for attention and it's really frustrating. I suddenly feel really alone and I don't know what to do-

  • I want to grow closer to people but I can't?

    Ever since I was young I haven't really been the type to get friends easily-- I remember feeling pressured by my mom, who would constantly ask elementary/middle-schooler me why would I sit alone during lunchtime (my mom would often drive past the school in the morning on her way to the store and other places and she'd notice me there). Now I'm a highschooler and well-- given the fact that I deal with social anxiety I tend to get nervous and/or become distant if strangers or just acquaintances are nearby. It's something like "nope, I don't want to talk to you. Nope. No. Stay away from me. Let's all mind our own business ohgodtheyareapproachingme" Anyway, uh, to the point-- I DO have friends and want to grow closer to them but I have a really hard time doing so. I don't know when I'm being too clingy or too distant and I usually back off before they get a chance to do or say anything, thinking I might be too annoying or even creepy. I have asked my friends if they found me annoying or creepy and they said no, that they liked me for who I was, but still... It's really bothersome. For example, when I want to talk to a friend about something that happened to me but I end up thinking they won't care or will somehow get angry/annoyed. Or when I'm just trying to find a topic to talk about but I fear they might be not interested. I'm pretty sure that to them I come off as this quiet and distant, distracted and clutzy girl (the last two because I daydream a LOT and get distracted stupidly easily). Sorry for going off topic (if I did)! I would like to hear your opinion. Advice would be appreciated!
  • worries about friends/loyalty?

    I find myself worrying about losing touch with friends, choosing one friend over another, or comparing friends; not just a normal worry though, a panic attack kind of worry.
