    Dear graduation,

    Thank you for teaching me that once high school and all those years are really over, that I really didn’t have as many close friends as I thought. I always knew I wasn’t that social of a person, but didn’t really see it when I always had someone to talk to or know and at least say hi to in my classes each and every day. I now, more than ever, realize how alone I really am.

    After graduation, I realized who my true friends were and who were just friends or just people from high school. And in the end, I come up with three close friends, on a good day. The best friends I had proved to me that they didn’t care enough to keep our friendship thriving. And now are nonexistant. And what sucks even more is I have so many amazing memories with these people, who are now not even a part of my life.

    I’ve cried so much over everything and I’m ready to move on and do better things with my life. It’s time for me to let go and be ok with being alone. And not see it as a negative, but see it as being independent and in a positive light.

    I just wish it wasn’t so hard.

      Please don’t feel alone. I have zero people that I still consider friends from high school. After college, I have maybe two. But you know what? Life is too short to waste my time on superficial friendships to people who don’t really care about me. So I’ll keep going through life, picking up maybe one true friend at each stage of my life… and when I am old, maybe I’ll have 5 or 6 total people that I consider REAL FRIENDS. And I’m ok with that. Because I will know those people like I know myself. I will be so close to them and so comfortable with them. These are the people who matter in life. Hang in there.
