Have You Ever Felt Like You Need a Friend More Than They Need You?

"Have You Ever Felt Like You Need a Friend More Than They Need You?"

If anyone were to ask me who my good friends are, this girl would top the list — only I know that if she were asked the same question, I'd be sixth or seventh. I think it's because she tends to keep more people around her, while I tend to prefer smaller groups. It's always been an underlying factor in our friendship, and when I tried to tell her about it once, she seemed to avoid the subject.

Maybe it's my own insecurity, but she recently found a job that she really likes and it seems like she only hangs out with her co-workers now. I could tag along, but whenever I do, hardly anyone talks to me. It's not only her work friends, either — it's her friends from home, too. I feel like I'm up against her home friends and her work friends, so I'm frustrated. We've had fun both with and without other people, but I've always secretly known that our friendship means more to me than it does to her. Lately I've found that I'm avoiding her on purpose because I feel like we've been drifting apart anyway. She graduates and leaves for home in a matter of months, so the entire friendship seems sort of moot, but I still care about her. What should I do, if anything?
