Hello, I'm Alex. I've always had a disconnect when it comes to making friends. I've had a few, but I never understood how they worked.

I didn't have a great dad and I figure that contributed to where I am now. I'm comfortable with myself but at the same time I'm terrified of other people thinking bad of me. I used to be overweight and didn't take care of myself and I still feel like I'm like that even while changing my habits for the better.

I feel as though I'm not as good as my peers all the while feeling like people are so petty around me. Whenever I meet someone I'd like to be around more, I just feel like talking to them would waste their time.
I can be socially competent and am not afraid of speaking with others, however I have always been asked: "Why are you so quiet?". One time I even met up with friends I met online and they described me as way quieter in person.
I'm sure a lot of you have felt similar things. I used to be on some forums a couple minutes ago and loved them because it was so much easier than talking in person. I want to experience that again.
So, hello!

Hey Alex, welcome to SAS.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

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

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.

Hey Alex! I believe that you can make some friends again, if that's what you want.

Hello Alex! Welcome to the forum!

At some point, you have to realise that some people can stay in your heart but not in your life ...

Welcome Alex ,I joined last month .I feel you have come to the right place. There are tonnes of people in here who go through the same things, some with really good advice. By the way if any of you play online games like fortnite,pubg,Apex or csgo..add me RedHatBW. I play on euro servers.

I really have bad days I feel like am alone but it was once worse. I think am making progress and finding my smile back.

What am currently on:
Best Anxiety Program
The link is audios,videos and by that Irish guy Barry McDonagh(one of my favorite Social Anxiety authors ). Sharing is caring. Check it out and tell me what you think about his techniques. Best Anxiety Program
