In the same boat really.
I have no answer to the question ‘why nobody likes me’
He has couple of good friends though. And many to play with. But hardly close. Just making up the numbers for the games.
We do some activities together sometimes though which do not necessarily need others like pajama party at home and drawing, colouring together that gives both of us a break from the routine and relaxes us. Some special plans without needing anyone else.
We need friends and social connections, agreed. However we all come alone and go alone!
Do we really need those judging and grudge carrying people in our lives? Maybe not!
Stay strong and hang in there!
