Friends Change Throughout High School

taylortimmermanEveryone  at  some  point  in  time  has  thought  that  the  friends  they  have  in  high  school  are  going  to  be  the  friends  they’ll   have until  graduation.  According  to  the  stage of life  website,   you  are  most  likely  not  going  to  have  the  same  friends  as  you  will  when  you  graduate.

“I  think  that  friendships  change  in  high  school  because  you  don’t  know  how  to  communicate  properly.  Also  choose  your  friends  wisely.  Know  who  they  are  and  get  a   chance  to  hang  with  them  alone,  to  see  how  they  are  alone  versus  how  they  act  with  others  around,”  Loy  Norrix  sophomore  Hailey  Timmerman  said.

Ever  since  freshman  year  I  have  had  a  best  friend  on  and  off.  Freshman  year  we  got  into  a  really  big  fight   and  when  we  made  up  sophomore  year.  We  decided  to  move  in  with  each  other  after  high school.  When  junior  year  came  around,  we  got  into  another  big  argument  and  that’s  when  I  realized  that  I  did  not  want  to  live  with  her  nor  could  we  be  friends  for  the  rest  of  our  lives.

In  other  cases,  students  have  many  friendships  where  you  only  speak  to  each  other  when  you  have  a  class  with  them.  And  right  when  your  schedule  changes,  so  do  your  friends.

“I  don’t  stay  friends  with  certain  people  because  we  don’t  see each  other  as  much  after  we  don’t  have  classes  together,”  Timmerman  said.

Even  though  everyone  has  rough  patches  with  their  friends,  according  to  the website   calorie  count  about,  40  percent  of  teenagers  won’t  leave  their  group  of  friends  out  of  fear  that  they  won’t  find  more  friends.

“I   would  never  leave  my  group  of  friends,  but  even  if  I  wanted  to,  I  wouldn’t  because  it  would  be  hard  to  find  another  group  of  friends  in  such  short  period  of  time.  And  worst  of  all,  I  could  end  up  not  finding  a  group  of  friends  and  be  friendless,”  Timmerman  said.

Unfortunately,  people  change  a  lot  throughout  high  school,  and  there’s  nothing  you  can  do  about  it.  Just  keep  your  head  up  and  remember  that  high  school  doesn’t  last  forever.
