Hi. I am a 27 year old male who suffers horrible anxiety. Social, health, general.. You name it. I'm never fully in control i feel because I'm always in my head. Worried about who likes me or what people think. Worried about my health. I feel like people just don't like me. Unfortunately it's not just in my head. For example at work, some clown can start obnoxiously blabbering on and people flock to them. An obvious exagerator who tells tall tales gets lots of attention. People who are hyper or even calm... Loud or softspoken.. Doesn't matter. They all get more attention than me. I try to be assertive. I try to engage people in conversation but i feel within minutes they are completely bored and never really come back to talk to me again. Someone can tell a bland dumb joke and people are rolling around laughing. I tell a whity funny joke and it's like they are staring at an annoying child. I dont know what to do. How do i strengthen my social skills. How do i get people to WANT to engage me want to be around me. I feel kinda lonley in a way. Like I cant entertain people or that I'm not fun to be around. And that sucks.. Any advise..
