    I know you're being honest

Well then, and now I'm flattered. I try.

I think your social circle generally tends to shrink after high school. This is certainly my experience.

It is hard to be everybody's counselor. You need someone you can talk to about you. At the crux that's what a counselor is, right?

I think lil is right and that this experience may just make you stronger as someone to lean on. It is sometimes easier to take counsel from someone you know has "been there" before. I acknowledge my answer is what it is in part because I bounced from therapist to therapist for a few years. Nothing will teach you like experience.
