Missing You by DragonwolfRooke Missing You by DragonwolfRooke
Sigh...

When I was growing up my family moved around a lot, so I got used to making new friends and saying goodbye to the old ones. And I never really missed my old friends, not really, since I was young and there were new friends.

But now, for the first time, there are friends that I'm away from that I actually do miss. It's a new thing for me. Not very pleasant, but I guess I'm grateful I have friends that are dear enough to me and to my life that I actually miss them. Especially introverted me, who's usually perfectly happy being alone.

Mostly I'm just feeling sick as a dog, and lonely, and don't really feel like painting much or being productive. It hasn't been a very good day that way. Ah well.

I know exactly how you feel. I have a list of friends who I sort of remember, but only like 2 or three I truly miss. And its so hard to be happy when you miss them so much... Especially if you're sort of in love with one of them (Caden, durp if you read my NuzLocke)... So yup, I know how ya feel. Sucks, huh?

I understand this all too well. I spent my who childhood moving around a lot too. It never really bothered me much, granted I rarely had many friends to lose. One move in particular really got to me though. I found that I missed the friends a left behind a LOT. I'm rather introverted as well and actually took to thinking there was some sort of weakness in suddenly having a move get to me like that when it never bothered me before. A stupid way of thinking needless to say. So, I understand where you're coming from. It sucks, but sometimes working hard enough to stay in contact with these people helps. Hope you feel better. :hug:

Sorry to hear that. I think we all have times like this,when we miss a friend who is precious to us. I know i do, a friend of mine who i havent spoken too in so long, but i have no real way of talking with him, it bothers me, but thats life you know? Plus, you got friends who love you, so thats a blessing :D. Trust me, it will feel better soon, until then, just keep a positive mind :)

Aw rooke, I'm so sorry about that D:
I can really relate to you. I'm not even done growing up, and my family moves around a lot. I've made tons of friends and lost old ones. So far we've moved between 3 different states, and moved houses and schools 6 -7 times in total. And as much as I remember, I've lost 9 friends and 4 close-friends. There was this one friend I had that was suicidal, and she even attempted suicide right in front of me through Skype... I tried to get her not to do it, but she did it anyway. A few days later she got back on Skype and she wasn't dead, she was just really really sick and seriously injured. Through Identity crisis, stalkers, and bullies I was permanently separated from her and she ended up hating me because of rumors and gossip, and the one time I tried talking to her I ended up getting spammed, hated, and stalked by numerous people not too long afterwards. Now I live in anonymity and I can never talk to her. I don't think I've ever in my life missed somebody this much, and I cry whenever I think/talk about it.

Just remember that you're never alone Rooke, there are people you can talk to (like me ;) ) if you ever need cheering up from somebody that's been in your place. Do whatever you can to keep yourself happy and eventually you'll be able to leave behind that sad feelings. What you have to make sure not to leave behind are the memories of that friend and the happy feelings you felt when you were around them. It's important to forget the bad feelings and remember the good ones, or else you'll end up ruining yourself in the end.
Stay happy Rooke, and good luck getting those bad feelings out of your head C:

How ironic...
My friend moved away yesterday, and I went with her. I helped her settle in, then had to leave.
She's three hours away now, but I've known her for eight long years. Sure, we met when we were young. Sure, my parents said that we would probably have our ups and downs as we grew older. But our friendship never faltered.

I was born as an only child.
I was always fine being alone, even when I didn't have anything to do.
But now... I miss her a lot.
I'm not the type of person to bawl over something like this, but it's still...
different.
New, yet different.
And I don't like it. It's a terrible feeling.
But I know we'll see one another again.

Rooke, I don't know your age, but I know I'm younger than you. I'm younger than most artists here. But I know I'll see my friend again. After all, the world can seem large, but it's actually rather small. You'll always run into people you've met before or left behind.
Whether it'll be a day, a year, or longer, you'll always see them again.
So no need to feel down. :3

Ik how that feels bro

Ive been trying to find one of my old friends for about six yrs. never thought id miss someone as much as that.

When its a new feeling its definately not pleasant, but ull get used to it. Just...dont forget them. You dont wanna forget friends that u miss because that means that they ment a lot to u. Enough to deserve to be remembered.
Thats how i am with my friend that im looking for, he changed the course of my life for e better. I may not be alive if it wasnt for him.

Those friends deserve to be remembered and missed. Ones that made a difference, as small as giving you a good memory, to as big as helping you through a tough time,

It's hard to forget old friends......so when the memories flow back it can hit you hard. But you have to stay strong and remember you were young. I wish your day wasn't so rough, but keep your head held high and stay faithful. You were given new friends so that they can support you through the lost ones. Keep the memories of the lost one's and enjoy them. Don't turn back. The future holds rough days but bright one's too! Hope you get better! God Bless. :hug:

Yeah I never felt that way before because I didn't move and neither did my friends until 8th grade my first friend moved away and now that I've graduated I miss my whole class now that we've all gone to our separate colleges :/

I know how you feel, but the memories that's what makes me smile a feel good :D
