High School Never Ends

At 19 years old I never thought I would be talked bad about behind my back. I thought my friends would have grown up after graduating from high school. I thought all the gossip, rumors and drama would’ve gotten left in the classroom. It never came across my mind that the band Bowling for Soup was right: High School Never Ends. 

I live in a small town. Living in a small town means you know everybody. Knowing everybody means you know everybody’s business… even if you don’t want to. But knowing everybody’s business means rumors and gossip spread like wildfire. Secrets aren’t safe, you really need to watch who you open up to. One wrong move and everybody could know something you didn’t want anybody to know. It’s like walking on eggshells.

I like to keep my circle small. I don’t open up to many people for this very reason: You can’t trust anybody. You can never know if that person will end up stabbing you in the back. In the past year I’ve gotten pretty close with a few people who hang out in my friend group. I had a lot of trust built up in each friendship I made. I was finally starting to feel accepted by people whom I thought cared for me. Then it happened.

One of my “friends” decided to start a group chat targeting my boyfriend, another friend of mine, and me. I wasn’t part of the group chat, neither were the other two. 5 of my “friends” were in the group chat and were acting childish, saying things that should’ve never been said to anybody. That’s when it hit me. High School Never Ends. 

I know this happens a lot all around the world. If you are somebody who has been the victim know you aren’t alone. You did nothing to deserve it and those bullies are just simply jealous of you. You’re a gift from God and you’re special in your own unique way. Don’t let anybody bring you down. Get those people out of your life immediately. Block them on social media, avoid them, do whatever is necessary.


You don’t know how much happier and stronger you’ll feel once you get rid of all the toxic, negative energy in your life. Remember, nothing is worth ending your life over. There are so many people in this world who can help you, who will sit and listen to you. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

  1. When you’re in school, it feels like that is your world, and it feels like you’ll be there forever. Once school’s over and you enter the real world, you realise that what you thought was your world, was actually a tiny area in a massive painting. Everything that mattered before, will seems so petty. Sometimes it will still smell like school, sorry..but that will quickly pass in the real world as there’s so many more things to focus

  2. And in the end they’ll come crawling back. I recently was talking to one of my friends and he was like “we need to hang out.” One of his friends which used to be my find was coming back from college for the weekend. I stared at him and he was like “oh wait you don’t talk to her anymore. You know she still wants to talk to you. All your birthday pictures are with her.” That alllll doesn’t matter to me. She hurt me. She literally punched a hole in my heart. Why would I talk to the same people who made me upset. It’s like all they want is to see you cry. That makes them happy. 🙄 keep your head up high. Stay true to yourself and tell them who’s boss 😊

  3. I watched a movie today, Cyberbully (2015). I was wondering how much of it really happens real life? Your story is pretty close. I recommend you watch the movie as well.

    Good luck!

  4. This is similar to a blog I was planning to write. At the age of 26 I have been out of school for 9 years (this does not include collage) and I can say that no one ever grows up from high school everyone just gets better at faking being nice to you. I am planning on making this blog today to I would love your input once it is finished. 😊

  5. I LOVE YOUR BLOG❤❤❤ I can relate so much to this, especially lately…I’ve been so hurt by people I thought I was best friends with. Your blog helps me realise that I’m not the only one…there is nothing wrong with me. It happens to other people too❤❤

  6. This might sound weird, but consider yourself advantaged. By the time your out your skin will be thick, you won’t care about what others think, and you will be able to handle criticism without crumbling.

    That was my experience at least!
