Hey guys, I think I forgot how to be social.
Or lost my social skills? I don’t know. I just know I suck at being social! I feel awkward like I don’t fit in with everyone else. I guess the saying if you don’t use it you lose it, really applies?
I enjoy being on the internet and got comfortable talking to strangers online. When I talk to people in real life I feel more quiet as a person. Online I’m a chatterbox.
Before I remember when I was normal, making friends was easy, talking was easy. With my RL friends we used to hardcore play this game called RuneScape for like 3 years. We used to play it together all the time.
But now…. second year of college… I feel like it was a mistake to use the internet/computer for so long. (8-15 hours a day, didn’t watch TV, internet/computer was the new best thing). I still don’t watch TV to this day… LOL I’m on the computer right now..
You know that joke, “get outside and see real life for once” I used to laugh at that, “who doesn’t go outside.” Now I realize… I haven’t been outside in weeks since I’m taking a semester of college off. I have no social life. I don’t even know where to begin to get one!
What do I do?! Will talking on skype gain social skills? What is social skills if talking is not–acting? I feel like I don’t relate to anyone, it’s hard to make friends!
