Acceptance


Hi my name is joe, and until recently i have never realized that i have no friends. In high school i only had a select few of friends. Now that i am in college i still have the same friends, unfortunately one is moving to kansas. The other is completely taken by a surplus of responsibility. So much that he can't hang out anymore, at all. I had a girlfriend but she is going to a college out of state and she thinks that itll be to tough to maintain a long distance relationship so she is leaving me at the end of summer right before she leaves. this way we have the summer together. I really like having a female companion around but i can't talk to just people. I can't keep a conversation going. I get all awkward and try to think of things to say to keep it going. I fear that i suffer from social anxiety, so here i am saying...I have social anxiety. If anyone can help me please do so.

Hey Joe, welcome to

Even if our scars don’t match there’s no wrong you can’t make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure there’s things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then I’m really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. That’s what’s holding the bricks together.

Thank you everyone. i feel slightly better to been welcome on here. I just finally glad that im not by myself anymore. its a little comforting to know that there are so many people like me who are socially awkward.
