The Ignored

I'm a very quiet and well reserved person. I do like people, don't get me wrong, I just can't seem to ever know how to begin a conversation. I know it's probably easy for some people to just say hello and begin talking. I make it a huge deal and begin to wonder "What if they ignore me? What if they don't want to talk? What if they don't like me?" So I end up not talking to a person that could've been my soul mate or new best friend. I just feel safer thinking I won't be hurt than putting myself out there and being hurt.

I could totally relate to your story. Instead of going along with the flow, I just think about what the other person might think of me and what i say, so i don't say much to them.

yea its real hard , i dont like it either but , cuz i study here so ,,

That's gotta be tough. I can't even fathom the idea of living in another country

I totally understand u i im kinda having the some problem , <br />
i know , that we need to know new people , have fun and all that stuff, but it just not that easy for me , now i live in another country , and its hard to adjust to that and have new friends
