What Is Wrong With Me?For some reason, when I'm with a group of people who don't know each other well, I don't have trouble making conversation with others. However, when I am with a group of people I don't know well, but who know each other well, I am very withdrawn and uncomfortable.
This situation is playing out at my job. I work at a bank, and after five months of working at one branch I transferred to a branch closer to my house. My co-workers are all great people, and I know from hearing their conversations that we have things in common. However, they have all worked together for several months and are relatively close. I am having trouble 'breaking in' to the group because I don't know how to get into their conversations or start conversations with them. It is also hard because, after all, it is a job, and the customers and job at hand always come first (in my mind). I am starting to get worried that my new co-workers think something is wrong with me.
