    family members fb post, my 22 year old niece wrote how someone mistaked her for looking 18 and she was happy that she "looks young" followed by other family members saying "its so fab that you can look so young at your age!!"....I sooo wanted to write "cause you are f*ckin young...

    Ive always been a very keep to myself kind of

    person. I dont like people knowing my business, my weaknesses. Talking about that stuff makes me uncomfortable. I act emotionless or like i dont care most of the time. I do that to avoid question that i dont wanna answer. Sometimes i feel bad about how emotionally distant and...

    I'm an introvert. And my mom thinks being like

    that is anti-social (she is the biggest, extroverted blabbermouth). So she forces me to do social things, A LOT of social things. And to top it all off, my siblings call me socially awkward just because of that.

    I hate it that I'm socially awkward.

    But I just am. I have a hard time talking to people. One day last week, I was in art and my old new friend and I were talking and I was trying to make a joke but I completely failed and tried to make it seem like it was intentional. So after I stopped talking she just looked at...

    Every time someone starts a conversation with

    me I end up spending too much time over analyzing my answers so my opportunity to respond has passed. I usually remain silent or just say "hm." Those times when I'm actually talkative are nice and I like that I can hold a decent conversation, but those usually leave me mentally...

    What I say: "Hello, nice to meet you.

    " What I think: "Hello, I'm socially awkward. Please don't hate me."

    I have a "friend" that comments every time I

    talk to a guy and says I'm awkward. I can't help it. It's hard not to be. I'm a very shy person even though I act confident and bold. Tbh with you I'm very insecure and very closed at times.

    Though I try my best,

    I cannot hide the fact I am not from this world. Clumsy to the point that people wonder if I do it on purpose. Laughing when I shouldn't, and not laughing when it's expected. Misunderstandings... everywhere. "What is WRONG with you?!" - everyone ever I swear, I come in peace...

    But I've learnt that no answer is better

    than an awkward, forced answer. So now I'm known as the quiet one.

    It's not that I can't carry a conversation,

    I'm just too scared to. I'm afraid of saying what's on my mind because of being judged or having someone take something I said the wrong way. Sometimes I go through an entire conversation in my head, almost planning it out before I talk to the person and then when I finally do...

    I'm usually really awkward,

    like I get scared talking to people a lot. It just makes me nervous. Ever since I joined EP for the most part I feel welcomed. So I'd like to thank everyone that's been so nice and nonjudgmental

    Well I used to be more social,

    then I don't know what happened. Somehow, my speaking skills got f-ed up, and now I speak like a foreigner with a weak voice (Like a pronounce many words wrong, and my speaking is fluid), thus leading to my lack of confidence in socializing, oh and don't forget my head thinking...

    I don't care who you are.

    I don't care if you're the kid who plays pokemon on his DS during a social gathering. I don't care if you don't have friends. I don't care if you're the most obnoxious person in the world - I'll reach out to you. Because I've been that person, and I understand.

    I Am Painfully Awkward.

    And I don't mean that to be "quirky". A lot of people, I've noticed tend to lovingly describe themselves or their friends as awkward for having out-of-the-box thinking. For example, I remember going to the movies and seeing some people I knew from college sitting a few rows ahead...
