I just started my freshman year of college and at the beginning of the school year I had a very small group of friends. The only thing about them was that they cursed a lot, smoke, or drank. I have been spending some time asking God if these are the right friends for me. But the holy spirit was telling me in the inside that these aren’t the right people to hang around. I decided to drop these friends because something didn’t feel right. I realized that I need to find a new group of friends. Now I don’t have any friends and its so hard to find the right kind of friends that are devoted to God just like I am. I feel that everyone is the same. The harder thing is that I deal with social anxiety, so its hard enough for me to make friends. I’m just trying to surround myself with positive friends. Even if its only just one..

Hey Maya! I totally understand what you feel. I’ve gone five years without having any good friends. No good Christians even. I prayed to God and used to cry a lot about it, but one day God told me that He’d give me friends who would actually sharpen me in my faith. Just trust in God, He’ll put you with the right people. It will just happen, so you don’t have to go extra bounds or measures to make friends, just be yourself. It may take a while, but just be patient; God knows what He’s doing.
God bless you, sister 🙂

In addition to the other comment I would also say to try to find a christian club on campus! I found one at the university that I go to and I can honestly call these people my family even with all the awkwardness that I have. I would definetly encourage you to pray continually for it, and watch God work! 🙂
