Why is socializing so hard??? No.225

I don't even feel a need to actively mingle with people, I just make myself do it to not seem like a complete NEET.
but I always hate it.
I would much rather prefer just lying in my room listening to comfy music while i change my wallpaper to anime girl of the season.

how do you guys go about talking to others?

y-you wouldn't watch me with VLC, w-would you anon?

No.232

everything i say has a string of possible consequences i have to think about. tell 1 person something and they may tell everyone they know, who might tell everyone they know, etc. tell 1 person something in a room of 10 people and it's 10 times worse

I assume most people do this but it is easier for some than others, and more unconscious. i definitely worry/plan more than most though

the worse part about this is thinking of the worst possible outcome and not doing anything at all fearing that the worst could happen.

sometimes I'm really envious of super extroverted and impulsive people

No.250

>>248
i alwasy think of the worst possible outcomes first but i plan to avoid them and i mostly do. i can be impulsive sometimes but i stopped because i cant stand myself

anxiety blows things out of proportion, but so does hope, just in the other direction. there are plenty of extroverted people who never consider the consequences of their actions and i would prefer to err on the side of caution than to become like them. that being said, the more i improve my social skills, the safer it is to engage socially.

i wish i could help you anons, i don't have any friends but recently i don't feel anxiety around people or imagine the worst possible outcome anymore, only regular nerves and they disappear after a while.

i think most extroverted people try too hard to impress each other and don't realize it. it makes me avoid social stuff too
