      Thank you!

      I agree that God could heal my wounds with all my past experiences with these "friends". And that I can meet new friends to help me grow. I would actually prefer older and matured friends than me.

      I've always been an introvert but for a few years I was on add meds that made me very social and I got mixed up with the wrong people and began abusing my meds and with help from God I got off of them completely and well, I'm an introvert again lol... It's not all that bad actually, I enjoy being by myself and when friends visit I suck it up for a little bit and hang out but I usually end up waiting for them to leave lol.
      Im no jerk or anything, I do like people but I have been betrayed in the past and everyone I get close to usually hurts me and we have a falling away.
      I did push myself to visit a few friends last month and it wasn't too bad, we caught up and shared some music we've been working on (my friends and I are musicians) but that's probably it for a while.
      I enjoy this forum a lot because we are like minded and I love the people here and appreciate our conversations... I like theology but I don't know anyone personally that I can have theological conversations with.

      On the side note, making friends with older people, people who won't likely to have issues with me are much better. I'm around 20s and I prefer to be friends with female group around 30-40 years old.
      You hadn't mentioned in your OP that you were having difficulties trusting those friends. What caught my eye was that you had said after graduation you weren't speaking to any of them any more and I didn't know if that included your family and boyfriend? But you have clarified that to say it was only your friends you meant.

      If your friends aren't the greatest of friends then yes, it's okay to get new ones.
