When people show you who they are - believe them!

There are a good people out there, you just have to find them.  But to do that you have to risk being hurt again.  It is worth the risk, though!

As time goes on ppl change. You have your whole life to make new friends. Don't look at it as a bad thing, embrace it.

Hi Samantha Rose, you don't have to live you life alone, but you do have to protect yourself.  If you are always saying "yes" to people when you rather not,  a lot of us women had to learn to say "no" when we had our own interests or obligations...people will use you if you let them. 

I grew up in the 70s with Women's Liberation and we had to learn to be assertive and to take care of ourselves first.  When that is accomplished, we help others when we can and if we can. I don't know if this is the case with you, but if it is, read up on being assertive.  It doesn't mean we care any less about others, only that we care and love ourselves and our families first.  They won't like you any less if you say no sometimes...they will respect you.

Hope this helps.

Live * Laugh * Love


Claire

You're probably just outgrowing your friends, do many of them have kids? You sound like you're in a different place in life then they are. Surround yourself with happy people and you'll be happier, keep company with a bunch of drama queens and trouble makers and that's all you'll get from life. You're too young to hate life, keep your head up :)

Sadly but most people are only for themselves.

There are only a few people in this world that I trust besides my kids. I used to trust everyone then I had some things happen and now I am a heck of a lot less trusting.
