I Feel Uncomfortable Around People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 176 People

    Whenever someone mentions

    and gives thanks for their friends here on EP or even in reality, it kind of makes me feel like I'm really alone and missing out on a lot of stuff. Then again, not many people like me.

    all day long!  It's horrible.  It's a small office too...which makes it even worse.  The same five people surround me every day.  They are nice people though, not a bad bunch to work with.  I dread break times...because I feel I have to talk, be...
