I feel like I get too attached to people and it scares them away, so I instead will avoid starting conversations and then get upset that I’m so lonely.
I might not be happy this way, but I’m certainly comfortable this way.
I never want to come on too strong, so I never let anyone know how much their friendship means to me and we eventually start drifting apart.
I don’t need a friend to help with homework, I’ll find a tutoring center. I don’t need a friend to give me advice, I’m probably better off seeking professional advice.
