Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 166 People

    Uncomfortable Among Strangers

    I've always been the type of person who finds myself to feel at ease the most when I am alone and relinquishing in my solitude. I recall the first day of school when I was forced to socialize with the other children I felt very nervous and uncomfortable. Growing up I...

    Everytime I have to walk through groups of people in the streets,college or any other place I feel very uncomfortable. The first thing I feel like doing is looking down to avoid eye contact, mainly because people really look at me. I have big ears and I admit it, I'm a little bit...
