I have two older sisters who are very outgoing happy people. It fustrates me, I feel I should be as outgoing as they are. I find myself comparing my success/failures to them, and I always feel down about it.
I have three older sisters and two older brothers and they are all non shy. A couple of my sisters are very outgoing. It sux cause I have to compare myself to them and they are all very successful and have traveled etc. and i just continue to fall well short. One of my sisters is constantly always on about me about getting out more and stop living at home and that.
I had the Jan Brady syndrome. "Marcia,Marcia,Marcia!" When we were in school, my sister was outgoing, popular and had a lot of friends while I was in the background. It was so hard for me to make friends and she did it with no effort at all. Sometimes I didn't want her to come around my friends or a guy I was dating because she would steal all the attention.
I have 5 brothers and 2 sisters. All of which are extremely outgoing. I'm the youngest.
My brother who lives with me now just moved here 6 months ago and he's already made loads of friends. I've lived here almost 4 years and haven't made one. That's not an exaggeration. It irritates me so much. The rest of my brothers are the same way, but I don't have to deal with them one-upping me every day.
my two older sisters are twins. Blond haired, blue eyed, skinny twins. Needless to say they've never had any problems making friends.
Kinda makes you feel like something really is wrong with you. "Why can they do it and I can't?"
My two older sisters are extremely outgoing.
One I've never really been around, but from talking to her, I know she's pretty outgoing.
My other sister keeps trying to get me to visit her and go places like clubs, bars, and wherever else that comes to mind (she wants me to come down this year for my birthday so she can take me out. My answer was a huge no). She hates that I don't go anywhere. She says constantly that she was waiting for me to turn 21 so she'd be able to take me places and such. Unfortunately, that never happened. Or maybe, fortunately.
I can get pretty wild. :b
Yes, I have an older brother and sister, my brother is very outgoing and has always has had lots of friends.My sister used to be a tiny bit shy when were kids but nowhere near as bad as me, now she is very outgoing.
Both my bros are far more outgoing/extroverted than me but it's part a matter of circumstance. Both have been going to bars/clubs since they have been of age & both have spent a lot of time working in them as well. Those are places where the main focus is conversation so naturally most people in them for long periods develop these sorts of traits.
It does frustrate me at times because I feel lesser than them when their personalities are really on display or if I can tell they are getting bored with my quiet nature
Yeah, my oldest brother is VERY outgoing/talkative. He can make friends with just about anyone, even random strangers. I wish I was like that! My next oldest brother (the comedian of the family) is even more talkative than the oldest, but he gets a little shy at times. My younger brother is shy and even more quiet than I am in social situations, but he doesn't have SA like I do.
