OP you're going to be okay. You will find new friends and you are fine on your own. Please believe me, you will get through this.
I have no idea what you're going through but I wish you the best.
Find your happy place, OP!
*hugs*Hang in there OP, It'll get better.
lol family doesn't always last either. learn to make it on your own or perish.
I feel for you OP, it can be so hard to live independently without having people to depend on.
@8: I'll be that guy who has a boner during the hugs and shows up multiple times during their route
Often times nobody will believe in you, not even your family, so you have to believe in yourself.
I wish you peace. This is gonna sound really bad, but I went through the same thing, and found people who depended on me for various things (academics etc). I always had people this way, and I felt like I was the bigger person in the relationship. May I suggest volunteering or mentoring. You'll be really happy if you contribute positively to someone's life (and they have more to lose from walking away from you than you do from them).Not necessarily the nicest of charity, but I'm trying to give you a candid perspective here...But seriously, good luck and I mean that in the sincerest way :).
Don't put up with other people's garbage OP. Decide on your own goals, do research, communicate with those educated in the field to review whatever you need, and then follow through with them.Spend too much time with other people and you will keep getting entangled with irrational beliefs and complaints.
OP don't listen to the other posters, they're cynics who can't get over being dumped by their friends.Just as with romantic relationships, sometimes it's your fault, sometimes it isn't. Try your best to evaluate what went wrong, and if it was your fault try to change. As hard as it is now keep trying to make new friends; it's better to have had friendships and lost them than to have never had them at all.
