I'm alone all the time because I am too scared to talk to people

I used to have friends in middle school before my anxiety got too bad. But after that I was to intimidated by most people. I am in college now and It feels imposible for me to make friends. I am so lonely all the time, but its somehow more painful for me to talk to people. I wish I knew how to relax and just chill around strangers (especailly girls).

I'm exactly the same, it's so torturous to move through life watching people socialise so effortlessly, they're so skilled at it, it makes me feel incompetent and that I'm the only person that's in this invisible bubble.

Hi Meowmix,

My daughter has just finished middle school. It wasn’t a very good experience for her. It was filled with anxiety and depression. I was unaware of her challenges, but she eventually opened up to me. I am so proud of her for taking the risk of reaching out. I would recommend you speak to a professional, if you can. While this may be challenging, I am confident you will be satisfied with your choice. I am confident that your college is equipped with counselors that can lead you to assistance. There’s nothing wrong with asking for help. Sometimes we need the experiences of others to act as a guide during unfamiliar territory. My daughter and I worked through her challenges, and she has a take on her social life that works for her. Here is an article that I think you may enjoy. Developing Friendships That Last | Focus on the Family It’s titled: Developing Friendships That Last, and it was written by Sheryl DeWitt. It has much to do with finding friends, how to, and people that may have a positive impact on you personally. It is not a substitute for help, but I think it will give you some support. In the meantime, I will pray you have a great outcome.
