"Joseph, I assume from one of your other posts that you've left school and haven't gone to sixth form? I know when you've first left school finding friends can seem a bit daunting but it needn't be. You need to create a lifestyle…"

How do I leave a bad group of friends?

I'l give you guys a bit of a back story, right now i'm at a point in my life where the only friends I have take advantage of me and even thought I help them every day they never do anything in return. I am sick of this situation, and I just want to leave this group of friends and never see them again. The problem is I have literally no other friends and where I live there isn't that many places to make new friends. What do you guys think I should do? Thanks in advance.See More
