    I Like To Think I Am But Im Definately Not Good At Socializing

    I don't know why. Im good with understanding people. Sometimes Im over confident in social situations. But it has become apparent, now that Im almost 27, that the main reason Im not more successful despite my skills is because somewhere in my adolecent years learning how to be...

    :(

    I struggle not to be jealous of people who easily speak up and get people attention. And I am living with one, actually. I just had a dinner with some friends at my place (I invited them) and I had to invite my housemate for dinner too just so I do not seem to try to exclude her...

    Usually, I really just avoid talking to people

    I don't really know altogether. Most people assume it's because I'm shy, but in reality it's because I have nothing to say, and so I know it'd be awkward and boring for someone to talk to me. If I get to know someone, I talk all the time, and it's obvious to them that I'm not...

    What Is Wrong With Me?

    I've been told I'm weird, I've been told I'm antisocial and I've been told I'm just trying to call for attention and the worst part is that those words came from the people I call friends everyday. I've tried so many times to changue the way I act in crowds or when I meet new...

    In my youth I could play the crowd and still it is a talent.  The crowd is different from the individuals.  It is not the sum of them.  It's another entity and it has a life of its own, independent from the lives of its members. Crowds can pretty easily be...

    How is there any room for change when I'm surrounded by your constant, negative, condescending opinions of me? People don't own you. From now own be your own person.
