That girl who had been causing all the problems at school and with Nora's friends went to her and apologized and not long after that they actually became good friends. Resentments and a lack of time spent together are enough to run it through to the ground. I never ever felt comfortable showing my vulnerable side to anyone. Expect to still have bad days, but strive to have good days in the meantime. Getting exercise and being outside will help.
Over the past year I've isolated myself from everyone I knew. Slowly things started to change and my best friend left this college due to some other reason and I stopped talking to most of the girls as they had their own gang now with the guys. Also, two long time friends of mine got married and now are no longer interested in hanging out with me. This is especially true if you've taken the time to call when you wanted something, but can't be bothered with keeping in touch otherwise. This is embarrassing at my age 52 to be friendless, yikes! I had lunch with one friend from high school 10 years ago and since then an occasional comment on facebook seems enough for him even though we were really close at one point.
Unless all your friends died or were killed off together now that may definitely happen given that half of the world is suffering from one battle or the other today - in that case be brave, pick up the pieces, and make new friends. You both just grew into different people. When people are sad around me, I feel empathy for them but I just don't know how to show them that. Just stay connected with them by talking about the things you do now. You are now in a situation in which you realize you want more friends than you currently have. You can also utilize social media to stay as close as possible to each other.
Getting out and being active can help you keep your mind off of the lost friendship. Time will heal your loss someday it is completely impossible that all your friends will disown you en mass for something over which you had no control. As you learned in your last job, seeing people daily makes it easier to bond. Join a club or group. I am okay if there is someone to focus on other than myself.
It is simply the way that we are wired. But whatever it is I am glad I found out who my true friends are, at that time I didn't even feel lonely because I used that alone time by occupying myself in other things like reading books and making new friends. Of course, there were lice and lice eggs in the pillow, and they just marched on over and there you go, she got lice. I had two very important family members pass away when I was 20. This can overwhelm someone quickly. Try getting off the screen a bit. I got divorced and moved back home and lost some family members.
You are legit, one in 7 billion people. I was restless at first. First, ask your friend if everything is okay between you two. I hope it helps me move on from this slump. If they offer to take you out or spend time with you, take them up on the offer and make an effort to enjoy yourself, even if only for a short time.
If possible, try to arrange to see your friend a time or two each year. Do something lively and exciting to distract yourself, and little by little, you will start to feel normal again. Do I just stop typing? When I was younger, I had many friends, but not now. It was the first year of college and it was that time when people were eager to make new friends and have fun because everybody wants to make memories before they go out so that they'd have something to reminisce later, I was one among them too. I feel happy with how I am evolving and my new husband and how my kids are adjusting but I haven't gotten to the point where i miss my friends.
It needs birds to poop around me, bees to stir my pollen, bugs to break down my detritus. You may not have the same type of friendships with them that you once had when you saw them day after day but you can develop a different types of friendships. There is no need to rush into new friendships, but you should be open to them. Find things to smile about. You can even get together just to run a few errands. I tried to explain it to them and I just started crying and sad.
