Growing up I didn’t have a lot of friends I was very much an outsider amongst my peers I was different, weird, annoying and god knows what else I was called by others. Primary School was by far the worse time for me I hung out with a group of 5 other girls and I was treated badly they would constantly have arguments which resulted in me being kicked out of the group and then let back in eventually and I was pressured into doing what they said and stuff. I was also bullied by other kids as well so looking back on my early school years I can honestly say I hated it and would never go back.
Soon enough primary ended and it was straight to comp where I hope things would improve. My first two years I was picked on the second being the worse due to me being moved from mainstream to special needs and technically being “the new kid” but once I entered my third year I had a small group of friends and the rest of comp I was teased but nothing to the extent of previous times.
My group consists of 3 boys and 3 girls (myself included) we also have another boy but he has recently moved to Norway so we only see him every few months and another boy and girl I only see now and again as there have been issues with others and lack of communication.
Nevertheless I love my friends they have been there for me through a lot of stuff in particular during last year when a lot of stuff happened and I was in a very dark place. I know I can always count on them to be there for me and to give me advice during their birthdays I always go above and beyond on their gifts and I always make the effort to go out with them wether it’s for a birthday or just a catch up.
I think if it wasn’t for my friends I would still be in a very dark place and truthfully I don’t think I be here if it wasn’t for them and my family of course that’s how much they all mean to me.
I honestly think friendships should be one of the most important things in our lives. I know everyone saids family is more important but in my own opinion with an exception of a few relatives and my parents and brother I definitely put my trust in my friends more and rather go to them for support and advice compared to my family.
I really hope readers that you all have a group of friends who have been there and are still currently there for you during the most difficult times. I’m always here for anyone who needs someone to just talk to that’s for sure, thanks for reading! 😊
