I Am Socially Challenged

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 25 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.

    I freaked out yesterday just from a Skype call. I panicked in ym head and then hung up on mistake. I felt horrible and ashamed that I couldn't even handle a phone call.

    I'm so awkward that it's sad. I'm only okay when anime is playing or when I have my music.

    Im awkward or what not every time I go out. I don't talk to people or let alone relate to people and society. So when I do go out, My awkwardness is apparent.

    I'm socially awkward. I don't have any close friend. I'm always alone. I feel so lonely. No one understands me. But I'm afraid to let others know what I think.
