I've been having a hard time lately. I'm very introverted so I don't have many friends. At school I'll just sit in the hallways and look at my phone to avoid talking to people. I don't really want to talk to anyone a lot of the time, but I also get really lonely. This happened a little while ago, but it was my birthday and I woke up with high expectations. All day, I waited for birthday messages from my friends, but there weren't any. Instead, they were all posting about national dog day. It really hurts to think that all of your friends don't remember your birthday, but they remember a holiday I'd never even heard of before. I often feel like I no longer matter to anyone, that no one would even notice if I left. I don't know what to do anymore.
