I keep feeling like him on the edge. I'm so scared for the future but I also dont care about anything. I hate all my friends and now sit in the bathroom to eat lunch to not bother them. But I have to always be confident because the people I'm close to need me to be confident. How do I stop caring about others?

    Reading this I am assuming you’re in high school. I’m 21 now but in hs I went through extreme lows. I was bullied at a point where I gave up. What I’m here to tell you is keep going. Those days don’t last and once you’re out of that place you’ll get to experience the world in so many more ways. High school ends. You can make it I promise you

    My dear, nobody on this earth is always confident, and nobody should ask or expect you to be. Nor should you ever expect that of yourself. You’re a complex person who is allowed to have complex emotions, for any reason or for no reason at all.

    This is always rough. You will find your people in life. I remember pulling a few people out of the bathroom in school and making them eat with me and be friends. Not sure if forced friendship was the right thing for them or me, but at least they were not alone.

    I graduated high school 6 years ago, and I don't remember very much. I promise you'll get through it. It's scary to make new friends, but if you don't feel comfortable with your current ones and don't think that it's something fixable, I'd recommend joining a club about something you like. I did marching band in high school and college, and I met all of my friends and my best friend through that. It's okay to feel awkward. It's hard not to care what others think of you, so my advice is to build up what you think of yourself. Focus on creating a positive self image, even if it feels like you're lying to yourself, because if you say it for long enough you'll believe it's true
