...If it means staying true to who you are.
Sometimes it is better to be by yourself, than with people who bring you down.
Sometimes it is better to be by yourself, than with people you can't connect with.

I think that all of us are guilty of this at some point. Craving acceptance and friendship so much that we are willing to change who we are, do some things we are not comfortable with doing. Like dressing differently, keeping our mouths shut, and letting that guy brush past you, even though it makes you severely uncomfortable because we believe it's our ticket to acceptance. Because we think that's what can make us finally belong, finally make them like you. But does this accomplish anything?
One thing that it does accomplish is making you feel like completely hopeless and alone.
I am guilty of this, but here's what changed.

Ever since things fell apart at the beginning of the year, I have been desperately trying to make myself belong. Eventually leading myself to a state of depression. One thing I had to realize throughout the whole experience is that it is so much better to be alone than with people who make you feel miserable. Being with yourself is not as bad as it seems. Spending time with yourself and being true to yourself on contrary can turn into something truly beautiful.
So if there is no one who actually feeds your soul, accepts you for who you are, makes you feel comfortable, encourages you, and makes you feel alive, it's okay to be that person for yourself.
Thake time to engage in your interests, improve on what you love and maybe that can serve as a beginning to an amazing story.
Bing by yourself can actually help you find yourself.

I don't have anyone to talk to at school. I forced myself to try and be friends with whomever I could, but you know what? it backfired, horribly. Forcing myself into those interactions I lost myself, lost my values, lost the sense of who I was (someone who never gives up and always believes in the best), I lost my positivity. Every day was turning me into this nagging negative person with nothing but despise for the world.
Once I stopped, I got back my positivity and now spend my time writing and doing what actually makes me happy instead of what makes me miserable. Most importantly I know that this will not be forever, this is temporary. In time I the right people will come along, it had happened in the past and it will again.
