It is OK to have no friends.

Not everyone wants or needs friends to be happy.

I myself can do without having friends although I do go around a couple of people that I think of as friends but we don't hang out that much.

I'm a person who loves to be alone but sometimes it's nice to be around the friends but only for a short while.

There's nothing wrong with you if you don't want friends or need friends.

Some people prefer being alone and are happier alone and that is okay.

Everyone is different and some people need social interaction and some people hate social interaction.

Also some people have what they consider to be lots of friends but in reality some of those so called friends are not true friends.

There's friends and true friends.

It's better to have just one true friend than several non true so called friends.

Know that it's completely normal to not have friends.

 It's not weird, and it's even common: 1 in 5 have no close friends.

Imagine that every fifth person you meet on your next walk has no close friends.

Visualizing this can help us feel less weird and alien: You're never alone feeling lonely.

If it's okay for you to be without friends, that's okay.
The main thing is how you feel at this moment.
You have a family, friends, work colleagues, etc.
Friends - in order to share experiences, dreams or plans with them. Sometimes friends are jealous - then they are not real friends. Then it is better without them.
Only you can choose. The opinion of society should not interest you.
