You cannot be easily replaced. You are not being replaced. It’s just people moving on. And that’s no fault of yours. People naturally move on, they find new friends, grow close, and later on, they might drift apart. I know how you feel, and I know this other person is bent on keeping her friends ‘safe’ from me because I’m going to steal them, so if I’m walking with her friends (who are also my friends), she will cut right in front of me so that I can’t walk without kicking her heels, so I have no choice but to leave. Being excluded can feel really bad, I know. I also know exactly how it feels when your best friends become closer without you. I go to school part-time due to my mental disorders, and I come back with my friends sharing inside jokes that I couldn’t be there for because I was stuck in hospital. I’m not sharing this so that you can feel sorry for me and feel like your problems are minor compared to mine. I’m sharing this so that you know you’re not alone, because you’re not. There are lots of people out there in the forums. Lots of fishies in the sea to make friends with (and a few mean sharkies to stay away from). Good luck, and I hope this makes you feel a little better. Find friends that appreciate you, that miss you when you’re gone. Sometimes group chats aren’t always that great, not when there are lots of people in it. I basically get ignored in a group chat I’m in, because there are so many popular people who have been on Episode for much longer than me, but I’m okay with that, because I know that it’s not personal, and I know that I have at least two people who do appreciate me.
