Welcome to HealingWell. I think that the reason that your old friends don't really want to be around you is because they feel like you ditched them. And I have to be honest and say that I don't know if they are going to trust you right away, if at all. I don't want to sound hurtful, but I am being honest. But don't worry, you are young, and you will have more friends. We really don't encounter a lot of people in life that we can consider true friends. Your true friends wouldn't want you to dump your old friends. They would be happy for you to have friends. So look at this as a lesson learned. Don't worry about popularity. This is your learning time. Now is when you want to get into school and learn what it is that you want to do in your life. Believe me you will make more friends. Some good, and maybe some not so good. But until then, you have us here.
I hope that you learned that to have a friend, you have to be a friend. And true friends don't tell you to ditch your other friends. Maybe this was a lesson for the good to teach you who your real friends are.
I hope that you feel better soon. And remember we aren't far away.
