So I don’t normally do this type of thing but imma try anyway.
So about 6 months ago i moved to a new school. This school is pretty much outside the city and theres not a lot of diversity in the actual school (the pupils)
So I’m pretty much the only person of colour and the only girl who wears a hijab in my year. I’m one of three hijabis out of the whole school.
Now I moved to this school at an awkward time. Everyone is already in their friend groups etc and i can’t really just go and join. There aren’t any muslim girls in my year, and no one else i really have a lot in common with.
Theres one girl im friends with and maybe 1 or 2 others but they all hang out with a big group, and i hang around with them i guess at lunch at break.
Thing is i don’t like this group apart from the 3 other people i mentioned before. The rest of the group smoke, they’re generally racist(not to me) and i just don’t like them. I get the feeling they view me as an outsider.
Now i’d preferably like to leave that group, but if i do i’ll be on my own.
There’s not exactly a lot of pupils in my year and none of them really talk to me or invite me to sit with them for lunch etc. I’ve tried talking to them and they’re nice but they dont invite me to hang out with them for lunch or break etc. And i can’t just go and sit with them randomly.
In summary-I have no “proper ” friends, and pretty much feel lonely. I see other people doing stuff on weekends and i pretty much do nothing. The only friends i see are friends from my old school at the weekends when il go and see them. I would like the leave the group i’m in or i’ll be by myself. 😦
Does anyone have any advice? Thank i’d really appreciate it. It’s such a horrible feeling to be lonely tbh and i really don’t like it. Especially since im at school 5 days a week, 7 hours
Thanks for reading
