It feels like nobody likes me anymore
I’m sick of everyone. I am ignored at school and the only thing that can be discussed at home is the horrible fights in my family. I’m so sick of it now. I cry myself to sleep knowing I have to get up in the morning just to be ignored by everyone no matter how much effort I put into talking to people. I’m not good at talking to people! Nobody understands. I cannot tell anyone. I’ve tried to but it doesn’t work. It feels like nobody likes me anymore
