    I just left college to go home for the summer. I know it is going to be pretty hard since I don't have anyone to talk to. I only have one friend from high school and she is going to leave on vacation in June. I feel bad because I wish I would have tried harder to make friends. I did make friends I hope with some people but I am afraid of bothering them. Maybe they don't really like me as much as I want them to. Maybe I'm not the type of person that can have friends.

    Ok hun. first thing you must do is not be negative.
    Assume that they have missed you like mad, be friendly and casual about the whole thing.
    Most people take their cue from our reactions and behaviour, if you appear happy and pleased to see them, they should reciprocate.:smile:

    Thanks for the advice. I know not being pessimistic is hard for me probably because everyone in my family is pessimistic. But I just have this overwhelming fear that prevents me from trying to make friends with people. It just feels so impossible.
