      I over share too 😘 mostly when I’m nervous because the word vomiting happens and then it makes everything worse

    I wish I knew how to make friends. Im extremely shy, with very severe anxiety. I wasn’t good at making friends as a kid, and have no idea what to do as an adult.
    I feel very awkward in groups. And I always feel like I don’t fit in. Or that people are judging me. And it’s even worse if the others already know each other.
    I hate how this impacts my son. He’s an only child, and is super friendly and outgoing. But, other than the park, he doesn’t get to play with a lot of new kids. And doesn’t have the opportunity to make real friends.

    How do people do this? His do you make friends as an adult?

    Right! I would prefer not to be so socially challenged that when I walk into a room of people I won’t send myself into a full on inner panic attack I have two children one is 9 and the other is about to be 5 and I’ve tried to make friends like say at the school but it never seems to works I’m just to awkward

    Keep getting out there, you (and your children) need this. If you make repeat visits to a place (play area) you will begin to see familiar faces and it will feel natural to strike up a little conversation… “our kids seem to like to play with each other” is a great one.

    It is hard for me as well. I am from an other country and I feel if I start talking with broken English people will think someway about me.
