    Church And Social Anxiety

    Here's something that religious christians never think about. Come join the body of Christ, they say. Every church I have been to, I go to a Sunday worship service, and it's difficult to meet anyone. This is because it requires me to be outgoing and say "hello, I'm new, and I...

    I Don't Do Well With New People

    I.. its too awkward for me. I have to be forced to sit next to them or be in the same room as them to start talking. Otherwise, I'd just stand near the closest person that I know and close my mouth.

    The Hungry Mouse

    A mouse was having a very bad time. She could find no food at all. She looked here and there, but there was no food, and she grew very thin. At last the mouse found a basket, full of corn. There was a small hole in the basket, and she crept in. She could just get through the hole...

    Im Shy and I Dont Know Why

    the truth is that i am shy around people i dont know and i dont know why that is the case, and it isnt just around the pople i think are attractive. The other thing i can say is that when i get to know people i am more talkitive when i am around them.
