Since I have moved to a new school, SOAR Prep Academy, making friends has been hard. At first, I wasn't the only one coming from Sacred Heart, so we tried to make friends. She ended up making new friends (that weren't very fond of me) and I was all alone.
When I tried to hang out with her and her friends, they gave me dirty looks. Because of this, I didn't hang out with them. This led to me eating lunch by myself and being alone at break. Eventually, I got over it and got used to being alone. I don't want people to feel bad for me. That isn't my goal. I just want others like me to know that they aren't alone.
I tried hanging out with other people I knew, but they also have their own friends. I sat with them at lunch but one of them kept looking weirdly at me, so I left. Later, my first friend slowly started hanging out with me more so I wasn't as lonely as usual.
Our school was doing X-block and I got yearbook. She got yearbook as well, so we got in the same group. We were working on sports, talking, and being friends! We started hanging out more often and I wasn't lonely anymore.
Now we talk a lot and sit with each other in some classes. I'm not as lonely as I was before so I am not very sad.
This is a meaningful event to me because it made me stronger. It toughened me up and I am okay with being alone, now more than ever. Overall, I'm more glad than sad that I went through this because it has taught me a lot and made me stronger.
