Really want to leave my old friends and find new ones

I'm in high school and recently I've honestly been feeling that I should leave my friend group. I've had this feeling for several months now that God wants me to leave, that he has better things for me. But I just don't ever act upon it, I've been praying for so long about this because whenever I'm around them, I honestly feel tired and weak and just all around not good . Additionally, about a month ago, I realized that while I was Christian, I was not living my life as God would want me to. My friends are not Christian at all and often say some things that are not very in line with my morals. I am so desperate to leave them but I'm so afraid of hurting them, and I'm very shy and scared of not being able to make any other friends, I really need advice. I so wish I could leave! But how can I possibly do so without hurting them? I know God is more important than anything and anyone on this planet but I just feel so lost and afraid. Please help!

Well It's a first step to want to leave your friends because you think they're a bad influence.

I think that you should step out of your pew and try to find oppurtunities to talk to other people beside your friend group.

In school when you have to have a partner find someone else to work with and see if they seem nice to hang with, and talk to their friends.

I kinda have the same problem currently, it's best to leave them you shouldn't hang out with people you don't feel comfortable with, i'm trying to get outta my comfort zone (by taking baby steps.)

What i did one day was approaching some girls, at the time i was new in my high school, short story we didn't really keep in contact which is also my own fault but at least i dared to meet new people.

May God lead you to more respecting friends !
