I Am Socially Challenged

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 24 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.
