I have never shared this with anyone, not even my parents, but when I was about 8 years-old my best friend and other of our friends started picking on me, calling me names and telling that I wasn't worth being friends with anymore. It really hurt and I couldn't understand why they were being so mean because we had been friends for a long time. After that day I became cautious of people and have not had any really close friends since. I am 27 years-old now and that day has stayed with. It has made really hard for me to make friends and keep them because I am afraid that the same thing will happen. It doesn't just happen to young kinds either. A couple of years ago the only friend I was somewhat close to told her parents lies about me. We aren't really friends anymore. I may be an adult now but it still hurts now just as much as it hurt when I was little.
