    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...

    It's really true... I can't

    even really start conversations. Pretty much all people that I know, both in real life and online have either talked to me first, or had to be introduced to me by someone else. So if you want to talk to me, you'll probably have to message me first. I'm sorry. But I'll try my...

    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...

    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...

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