What to say when someone says you have no friends

What to say when someone says you don't have any friends

When someone says that you have no friends it may feel like the end of the world. In truth, everyone single one of us has been left out at some point and time. Being excluded from a group can be very painful, and if it escalates it may be relational bullying.

When someone makes a mean comment like you have no friends that they are trying to exert power over you, or look big in front of others. If you are being  bullied you need to tell a trusted adult what is going on. it doesn’t have to be your parents but someone who can help you with the situation.

A teenager I  know went to school with a girl who was a total bag, she would hate on everyone and say mean things about people to their face causing public humiliation. She thought she was a big deal and powerful, but  behind her back all of her friends from elementary school couldn’t stand her and she had very few true friends. Sometimes the mean person spouting out lies has no idea that they aren’t so popular themselves, and the people around them are just afraid to say anything.

It may not feel like it at this moment, but there is a tribe or a group of people out there for you. You can find people online, through meetups or teen groups or wherever you are in your life. You don’t have to feel alone there are people out there going through exactly the same thing. Trust me, there is someone sitting in the same city as you feeling exactly like you are right now.

Even though it feels like you are going to be the odd man out forever, it’s not true. Girl cliques in school can change weekly with a new person being excluded by the Queen Bee.

If you want to use a comeback on the person who said it to you, try one of the ones below.

Having no friends is better than being fake friends with you.
I do, only you would not know them because they would not associate with someone like you.
Better for me, I don't have to deal with idiots like you!
Yeah, you are fluent in lies and BS.

When someone doesn't like you it doesn't matter

Talyor Swift felt excluded and didn’t have a lot of friends in high school

When Taylor Swift was in high school she often felt excluded or left out by the cool girls in her class.

Having alone time led to Taylor developing her amazing talents as a singer songwriter.

I remember when I was in school, the whole reason I started writing songs was because I was alone a lot of the time. I’d sit there in school and I’d be hearing people like, ‘Oh my god, this party that we’re going to is gonna be so awesome on Friday. Everyone’s invited except for [Taylor].  – Taylor Swift

Taylor is known for her celebrity girl squad, her crew includes singers, entrepreneurs and models. I bet the mean girls in high school wish they had been nicer to Taylor.

          i got bullied for no reason what so ever i was nice to everyone and cared for them but i don’t think they liked that because i got bullied day after day, month after month, and year after year. got so bad i had to move so remember you are brave, strong and beautiful

  1. wow. i love all of these comebacks! here is one also:
    you call me a bi*ch, but a bi*ch is a dog. and dogs bark, bark is on trees, and trees are nature, and nature is beautiful. so, thanks for the compliment!

  2. And do you have any experience in that? It takes money to fix the face but nothin is going to fix your ugly personality

  3. Hi, yes I acknowledge the fact that you face challenges understanding the definition of friends, and I would like to give you advice…. please get a life and grab some friends that you dont have. (Cue evil smile)
