I have an office lunch with my coworkers this week and I am deathly afraid of this encounter. I went to a birthday celebration at work a month ago and it was extremely awkward. Everyone has been at that company together for a long time and they kind of just talk to themselves. It doesn't help that i just sit there frozen and speechless...Any advice on how to survive this?

Is it mandatory that you attend? If not, then perhaps you could just not go?

I have actually found that attending these get togethers helps working relationships. I would give it another shot, I know it's hard but in the long run can make things easier. Good luck!! :)
