I feel stuck, like in quicksand and I can't get out. It's like I keep walking into it, I know what will happen but I'm staying on the same path. I'm talking about my friendship with these girls at my school, they're really cool, funny and nice. The typical people you'd want to be friends with. But the problem is I think I'm more of a second choice in the friend group, like an afterthought. I do so much to impress them but there is this one girl that I can't act normal around, like I need her approval of everything, and I hate that, so much. I don't know what to do. Everything used to be different though, they would include me and invite me. I'm more of an afterthought now. I probably am overacting (they aren't toxic or as bad as I make them sound). I feel like I need new friends but I don't know how to find them.
