I’ve been a loner all my life. I didn’t fit in at school. I’ve never really had a best friend or been part of a ‘squad’. I’m the youngest child. My siblings are 10+ years older than me so we’ve never really been close. I kinda feel like the annoying little sister sometimes. I used to lay in bed crying most weekends because everyone was posting about their awesome weekend with their friends on social media while I was home alone. I very rarely got invited to anything. I just feel so alone. Can anyone else relate? How can I enjoy life alone?

Well, if nobody invites you, why don’t you invite them? Sounds like you’ve trapped yourself inside the “annoying little sister” mold when, really, you are so much more. As for not fitting in..you’d be surprised how much you could find in common with someone if you both try 😉 Ask one of your classmates, or a neighbor, or someone from church to go do something with you one weekend. It can be as simple as “hey, I’m planning to go to the movies on Saturday. Want to go with me?” or “I heard there’s an amazing cafe in town, have you ever been there? How about we try it together?”
I’m a super shy girl, so I know it can be really hard to reach out to others, but you need to reach out in order for others to learn who you really are. A lot of the time, the reason why you aren’t invited to do things is probably because the others don’t know what to say to you…give them a hand by starting the conversation! What’s the worst thing that can happen?..stepping out of your comfort zone a risk worth taking 🙂
We live in a big world with lots of people, and I can assure you that somewhere out there, there are lots of people who understand you. It’s only a matter of time before you find them 😉
