I lost many of my friends from school.

Before 2020, I had a hard time including myself and would tend to distance myself from people, unless they were the ones to come closer to me. That being said, when the virus started to spread, I started to distance myself even more, and no one came closer, which left me alone. I believe I am an introverted person, so it didn’t bother me as much, but I consciously know better than to have little to no friends. Having no friends now could result in having no friends in the future, but it may not always be the case. In the summer, I am moving back to where I used to live. Now that I am moving back, I get to spend time with my old friends who I’m not distant with. If I had not moved back, though, it could have ruined my future.
