Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 80 People

    :(

    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...

    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...
