I'm 16 for the UK, and I'm doing my GCSE exams this year. I feel this is important because I know all of my friends, and myself, are busy studying. However I also think it's still important to make time to hang out with friends to relax as well as a way of supporting each other. Every time we leave school everyone says we should meet up but for months now every time I ask my primary friend group if anyone is free and wants to hang out they all say they're busy. And when I ask when people are free everyone says they have to revise, ect (although I know that lots of them aren't revising from social media) . 24/7. They all have younger parents than me and siblings at home (my parents are in their 60s and my only sister is a lot older and lives 5 to 6 hours away) so I end up feeling quite isolated and lonely. I don't know how to explain this to them in a way they'll understand more than I've already tried. Everyone else is the year group manage to balance work and being social.
My mental health hasn't been amazing recently, but I always try to be kind and considerate and I can't think of anything I do that might make people want to avoid me either?
