    Even if i am with a group of well known friends,

    or a half friend i have known from birth. My mind, barely lets me get along with many who do not share common interests of my mind. I'm a quiet soul, trying to live a loud life, but while being unrestricted to hell. I speak openly and loudly, but lack the true meaning of who I...

    Certain people love my hair

    and have the tendency to touch it so I shrink down and stand awkwardly unsure of what to do. O_o

    I don't know what is wrong with me.

    I'm a teenager and I'm incredibly socially awkward. Whenever I'm in a social situation ( sometimes even if it's only towards one person) I get extremely nervous. My brain just stops and I just can't think of anything to say to them. I can't keep conversations going at all and I...

    I just discovered that it's really hard

    for me to have a conversation with other people. I don't talk most of the time because I'm bad in choosing a topic so I always end up not saying anything and creating a akward silence. It's really horrible, that's the reason why I'd like to avoid people in general, but end up...

    The lights are out there's no time to call your

    friend and tell them all about your day. Repeat the things you know they're only things you tell yourself to feel ok.

    I can't even approach people online.

    Making new friends seems like an impossible task for me, even when people approach me first, I fail at keeping the conversation going, because I seem to never know what to reply. And when I feel like I'm finally succeeding, I find myself alone again because the person suddenly...

    Quiet and socially awkward around new

    scenes/people but with my close friends they couldn't imagine me being that way but notice if someone tags alone that awkwardness comes back out that's part of who I am I guess ;)
