I'm unsure what to write here, but I'll give it a go. The last few months I have found that I really don't have a single friend. Sounds stupid because how would I not realise that already? I guess I was focused on work and home life that it's passed me by. I had to stop my job full time and go part time which has left me with tons of free time. I sat there and realised I don't have anyone who I could call for a chat or meet up with, it hit me really hard and it's so isolating. I have a wonderful little boy, we do a lot of days out but we have no 'mum friends' who I could ask to join us. I've tried with a few people to find a friendship but it seems to faze out due to them being busy or being with their own group of friends. I have found myself crying most days, I don't feel like I fit in anywhere anymore. I'm only 32, so most the people my age have established groups that are in a clique so it's difficult to reach out. I don't want to burden people by having me there so i try to brush off any knock backs but i know I'm crushed inside. I feel like I'm hated or hugely disliked, is there anything I should be doing to change who I am.
