How to get out of this situation?

So I'm relatively new to the game, I made my account in Dec 2017, stopped playing in January and this year I returned because of some friends... I went from Lv 12 to Lv 33 within the last month and I even got some S Ranks, but I'm aware that I'm still not really good. However my friends are and I know that I'm holding them back (especially in ARURF because I don't know the Champions) so I tried playing alone for a while. I lost a couple of times and now I get paired with people who don't buy items at all, who run into the turrets, don't react to pings or even read the chat. And apparently there are over Lv 20 or Lv 30 without knowing the basics... It's just very frustrating, because I don't know what to do. I used to be mad when I died more than once and now I die around 5-8 times every game, because I try to do things alone. The worst thing is that those players get matched with me AND with my friends whenever we play together. They don't mind it as much as I do, but I'm really ashamed. I know it's because of me! I just want to support my friends and learn how to be a better player, but I don't see a way to do that in the situation I am right now. It just feels like it's getting worse and worse... I know I'm being whiny but is there anything I can do? How can I learn from bad players? I don't really want to delete my account, because I've gotten some presents from friends, but if I need to start from scratch again, I would probably do it. Should I just try not to die, even if there is no chance of winning the game without taking risks? Please, any advice is welcome... {{sticker:sg-soraka}}
