Default Hi

Not really up for this but I'll give it a go.
Hi I'm broken girl and I'm just that.

Anxiety has been played a big part of my life for so long and I've accepted it. But it has lead me down a really lonely path. I don't seem to be able to make friends. I've tried many times but people just don't want to know me.
I'm too quiet or I'm boring. But in all honesty, I don't really have anything to say. And when I do, people take what I say the wrong way.
I'm a nice person and I have a really big heart. I'll do anything for anyone but that just leads to people thinking they can bully me or take advantage. And when I try to stand up for myself it gets taken as me being nasty. I can't win so I gave up trying.
But anyway that's me. The broken girl who doesn't talk to anyone all day or night and is completely lost in a world that I don't understand.

I'm sure there are people who would like to get to know you if you give them the chance. I'm a bit like this in that my illnesses cause me to isolate myself.

Well done for posting, and welcome.

Thanks Miggs. I hope so too. Although I'm worse at sending messages than I am at talking in real life. But I'm going to give it a go

Default Re: Hi

i'm feeling the same, i think i'm generally thoughtful and nice, but i can't make friends because i never relax and talk normally, often my mind goes blank when i talk with anyone. i feel so boring, i hate it but i can't control it. I listen in on strangers chatting sometimes and I don't know how they come up with the things they say to each other so naturally. i've had no friends for ages, people seem to generally like me, but i never make friends because i can't bond or even have a conversation anymore because of my stupid anxiety.

Hi Brokengirl. I think you will find there are many many people that have experienced just the things you have described including myself and hopefully we can all help each other, if only to provide reassurance that you are not alone.

Default Re: Hi

I tell myself not to say anything for the sake of it anymore, because 9 times out of 10 in the past i've come out sounding stupid, plus it takes atleast 2 to have a good conversation.
