I Am Socially Challenged

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 22 People

    These Days

    I used to make friends very easily, but lately I've been horribly depressed, and it just makes it so hard to talk to people. I've struggled with my self-esteem for years, too, which doesn't help. Basically I'm a shut-in now.

    Because of that I don't have friends. Never had a boyfriend. Never been to a party. Or had a sleepover. I'm so lonely and sad. I don't know how to make friends.

    The friends I have last forever (so far...). But I have a VERY hard time making new friends. In general it's very hard for me to meet new people, unless they're really easy-going
