I feel so lonely..I know lots of people but have no friends..I just dont know how to act around people..I always worry that people are judging me..I never know what to say to people..I get nervous when trying to talk to people that I dont know well..I hate the way I look, the sound of my voice..There has to be some way to get over this..I have even tried making friends online just to have someone to talk to but that doesnt come easy either..I have no idea how to start a convesation with people or what to say..Since I have no friends really and no family living near by there isnt even anyone I can talk to online either..It makes for a very boring life thats for sure...

Hi,


The first thing you can do is start appreciating how great your own company is.

I can relate. I don't have any friend either. It does get lonely. But, I try to join support groups online and that does help. I know what you mean about having a hard time around others. It seems like every time I try to be friends with someone it never works out for some reason or another.

Have the courage to approach someone and initiate a small talk about anything. Don't ever worry of the impression you are making because all of us are imperfect. If someone puts you down or insults you, that person has flaws too to which you can also use to put him/her down and insult to. Do remember that. So, why do you have to care their impressions on you? Do they have the right? We're all the same.
