Stop trying to be perfect. Be authentic.
Take a risk that opens you to possible rejection
don't expect anything from others
Stop reading minds, you can't, mind reading isone of your critical voices favorite hang outs
rather than demands, offer acceptance
focus on what turns ur crank...that's it in a nutshell
sometimes if you fake self confidence long enough, you eventually begin to believe it... it's your choice what kind of friends you can make, just make good choices.
Practice makes perfect. Ya just gotta put yourself out there with a positive attitude and never back down ^.^
