I constantly test the waters. If people seem open and approachable I will let them in somewhat. But if they seem approachable or unfriendly I shut down. I always think" they must hate me" or" they think I'm too weird" .

I find myself doing that on here too. I want to reply to someone...write out my post...and delete. Am I alone in this?

In my experience - we can take things personally, but often that person will treat other people exactly the same way...

You are like a piece of clay - it will harden in time.

Hi Broken1 I cam relate to this,only when people are a little quieter and closed I tend to try and push them into things (like my friend doesn't like filthy humour so I tend to use it even more around her to get a reaction lol naughty but funny!) But I do think Brat tomato talks sense,sometimes that's just the way people are with everyone...also when I first came on here in November I didn't dare write anything and now I'm turning into a full scale gob sh*te �� haha just do it Broken 1,don't think about it...and you have brought up a very good point here so I'm sure you have a lot more ��
