Clicks exist outside of high school

I recently went to a rehab program. It was for adults and was centered on recovery. I won't go into much detail but it sure helped me see outside the box.

The vibe was like being in high school again. clicks formed and people joined their respectful groups. Even though people weren't going to admit there were clicks I spoke up and mentioned it to some of the staff and a few peers.

I wasn’t popular in high school and was more quiet than anything. The feelings I experienced at rehab I experienced the same feelings in high school.

it was almost like deja vu. It made me nervous and I felt like I had to be in survival mode again.

The surreal part of it was that I didn't get along with one of the girls. I didn’t like her and she didn't like me. She was rigid in personality and was hard to get along with.

Kind of like mean girls. but not as dramatic and mean.

even as adults people seem to move toward others who they are similar to. perhaps as unfortunate as it is, clicks are still alive and well.
