Social Anxiety: NO, I can’t just talk…

Being the shy little peanut I am, I find it hard to socialise (would rather spend the day with some lovely yaoi). When I’m around new people, I find it even harder.

Let me give you an example:

At a friends party, she invited loads of her friends and I knew none of them (okay, I had met a few of them before) so it was really hard. So chilled downstairs while her friends were talking upstairs (there were about a million of them…) My friend Grace was also with me and she’s like some kind of social machine. She was chillin upstairs with the rest of them even though she had never met them before in her life. When I told her that I was bored she told me something like:

“Come upstairs!”

and I said:

“But I’m shy…”

But I still followed her. By the time I got there, there were so many of them that I felt like I was about to drown in an ocean of anxiety (poor simile? sue me…) so I kept my mouth shut and kept to myself. When I looked at Grace with pleading eyes, she told me.

“You should just talk.”

I was too nervous to speak in that situation, but I probably would’ve said something like this:

So I settled for this:

That’s the problem with people who don’t understand, but oh well- Grace doesn’t get a lot of things. I’m used to it.
