I moved about a year ago to this really small town and was really excited for the new experience. My parents actually didn't want to move, but they gave me the option and I jumped on it. I'd lived in my hometown since I was born (so 15 years, then). When I first moved to the new place, I made A LOT of new friends at my new school very quickly, but I got really bored with them after a month or two (and I think they got annoyed with my positivity). It was a really negative environment for me because everyone there is really judgmental, negative, and so unfriendly it's not even funny. They also gossip ALL the time and just seem so fake that it makes me sad; I moved because I thought I'd have the opportunity to find people who thought like me, but I don't know anyone like that. Now I feel so alone The past few months of school, I've been pulling back from any type of socializing, just because everyone at my school is so mean and cold to me, I figured what's the harm? Well, now I'm really socially awkward and I never know what to say anymore when someone talks to me. I've drawn back a lot and don't even talk much anymore; it feels so unnatural for me. Has anyone felt what I'm talking about, or is it just me? I'm sixteen, so it might be a teenager ENFP thing, but I've always found that I was a bit more mature than my peers (not trying to sound snobby haha, I've just had a lot of hardships in this life as of yet) and can relate to older ENFPs more. Do you think that once I'm in a more welcoming environment, like a job or just out of high school, I'll go back to being me again? I'm so scared that I've forgotten what it is to be myself...has anyone else experienced anything like this?
