I keep reading on Facebook that a group of my friends were hanging out almost every night during break. And it really hurts because we hang out at school and extracurricular activities and get along great.
I always have to call and make plans if I want to hang out with anyone and for once I would like someone to call me. What should I do? I feel so left out.
Hey, girl. Sorry to hear about the tough sitch. Feeling left out can hurt a lot, but with a bit of effort, you can turn this sitch around.
Take the initiative (again)
You all hang out at school and have a great time. So what’s the problem—why aren’t you being invited? It may be that the rest of the bunch doesn’t feel as close to you. Show them you should all get together by inviting everyone to hang out one night.
If you feel closer to one or a couple buddies of the group, try talking to them. Let them know that you saw they’ve all been hanging out a lot and were wondering if you could come next time. If they’re really you’re friends, they’ll more than understand and def invite you to hang.
**Here’s a warning though: Facebook is often unreliable. What looks like a ton of parties may actually be just one, so make sure to ask your friends what’s actually going on before you get too upset.
The hard truth
In the end, if they don’t make an effort to spend time with you, they may not be your real friends. True friends will want to spend as much time with you as you want to with them and won’t leave you feeling left out. If they don’t realize how great a gal you are, it’s their loss.
