- Mood : Blah
I know how you feel @lala-arduini, I’m shy too and find it hard to make friends with others Aiya, it takes me time to warm up to people, try your best to be open, confident and let your bright personality shine through Aiya, remember you are a wonderful person who deserves to surround herself with happiness, hold your head up high and smile, you can do it, inbox me anytime if you want to chat or vent, stay strong, you are never alone (hugs)
Just be your self and start goofing around with people. It is easy on here – anonymous and things are often driven by others. Join in a conversation, start a new one. Just be persistent. It is a start. Gain confidence online, and it can translate into real life. Of course, because you are on a therapy site here, some people might explode in anger, etc if you try something new or different, but that is on them, not you. Just keep at it. You only need a couple good friends to make a world of difference.
@lala-arduini you have to find common ground. If you have similar hobbies and interests with others will help alot. Also if you struggle with small talk, try to ask people things about themselves. People loooove talking about themselves so that will give you some time to think of the next subject of conversation. Hopefully I helped. Best of luck darling
