    At Work In The Office, I Feel Uncomfortable...

    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...

    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.

    for a month now. This man who works at the gym has a major crush on me. He is about fifty or so and I am only in my late teens! It is so uncomfortable for me and today I felt like crying because he was making me feel that way. I want to continue going to my gym because I...

    I don't get it. I feel like an outsider.

    I'm described by people as a "true gentleman" or just really nice guy. I'm passionate and love making people happy. There's just one problem.. I can't stand people? I like people and crave some sort of communication or brotherhood . But I don't have that with anyone. And I don't...

    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...

    I always want to reach out but often don't, sometimes afraid to say the wrong thing and make it worse, sometimes unable to handle it if my own resources are maxed out
