I Am Soo Awkward

I am incredibly socially awkward. I just started a new job and whenever anyone talks to me I get nervous and words just come out of my mouth before I have time to think about what I'm saying, I then spend the rest of the day feeling stupid about how I acted and worry about how I'll act the next time I see them. I only have a small group of friends and stress out about one on one time, worrying that I won't be able to keep the conversation going or the other person will find me boring. I also have a hard time when it comes to eye contact and facial expressions, often rather than listening to what someone is saying I'll start worrying what I'm doing and how much eye contact I should be making.

I need to work on this and I really want to. I'm looking at this as the first step, hopefully I can move forward and get some help...

Hey, thank you for your post. I can relate to that. It's hard to break the cycle of worrying about coming across as awkward. Sorta one of those self fulfilling prophecies so to speak.
