I don't know if others feel the same way and it's hard to articulate, but here goes. It seems that for the majority of my life-friends have come and gone. At the moment it feels like I have many acquaintances(sp?) but really no-one to call up or call in just to say g'day. It feels awful at times when you're at home and the only company and escape you have is your books or the internet and you see your neighbours always having visitors over and they're having a great time-laughing and all and you're at home not wanting to bother them. You start to feel that you're a bad person or something. I know from experience that friendship comes and goes like the seasons, but it's still hard to deal with being lonely. Does anyone else here feel the same?
