* Day 8 – Struggles

Day 8: Share something you struggle with.

I’m a pretty socially awkward individual. I’m fine when I’m around people that I know pretty well, but if the room is half full of people I don’t know, I go back into my shell. It really bothers me. I understand this is just part of who I am, but there are times I wish I could be more outgoing and talk to random people.

I remember this one time where I was out with a bunch of my sisters friends and in a place I’ve never been before. I was so freaking uncomfortable. It wasn’t that they were unfriendly or anything, but it was those ‘everyone know everyone else’ kind of deals. So I was literally the only one who didn’t know anyone. My sister was off talking to friends she hadn’t seen in forever. So, to cope with my anxiety, I left and sat in the car the rest of the time. I cried. This was about 5 years ago? And there’s been other times were I had to just leave and be by myself.

I’ve heard this is a pretty common thing among writers. All pretty introverted, socially awkward nerds. So, I guess this makes me feel a little better? Anyways, I’m sure I’m not alone on this, but it still sucks. Let me know if you have these ‘struggles’ too. Let’s be awkward together! 😀 ##
