Noone likes me

I am feeling: Sad

What happened to make me feel like this?

I am not part of the group of friends I want to be part of

Why is I am not part of the group of friends I want to be part of  making me feel sad?

I might not be liked by those I like and want to be liked by

I am feeling sad because I might not be liked by those I like and want to be liked by

The reasons why I feel this way

they stop talking when I approach, they don’t include me in their games, they don’t pick me to be on their teams

The reasons other people give to tell me my thinking may be wrong:

Sometimes one or two people do include me and do talk to me

What other things are going on that might make this situation seem worse:

Many of that group are on the same sport team so spend more time together, I sometimes feel shy in joining in activities in case they tell me to go away

What are all the different things that might happen – good, bad and most likely:

Goodthey include me in the group and I find out they do like me.

Bad: They don’t want to play with me or include me – they don’t like me. 

Most Likely: Nothing changes unless I do something

What would I tell a friend who felt this way:

I would tell them to invite one or two of the kids over for a play and get to know them better and have fun
