Atrophied Social Skills

by Black Holez

I’ve been isolated for 2 years that I have a hard time talking to people and making new friends now. It’s like my social skills have deteriorated. I can’t even hold simple conversations with other people anymore. Anyone else feel the same way?

Ya, for me its like a self confidence thing, I worry too much about what im gonna say, how their gonna react, etc. And I generally find after any interaction I spend a lot of time afterwards thinking about why I hate these people or how stupid I was etc. Just a lot of irrational negitive thoughts. I think the only way to get over this is to just keep trying.

actually i can really relate to this, but i always have it difficult finding a balance between sounding boring and antisocial as opposed to being nervous and thinking out loud – and then i regret making a fool out of myself immediately afterwards. my self confidence is destroyed after an experience like that and i just want to stop socializing altogether. but life doesn’t allow that freedom. er what i think i need to do is calm down before i talk to anyone , and just talk smoothly or take my time. but sometimes i just cant be in the mood to be happy and social or i just get really nervous and stressed when i talk to a someone because i barley do. this is part of why i can make friends if i wanted to, im to stressed about what im gonna say, how they’ll respond and how to continue the conversation from there.

I can relate in the sense that the more I’m around other people, the better I get, and the reverse is also true.

I am a very talkative person in a nervous way. When I am uncomfortable I will start talking a lot, very fast and stutter pretty bad. If I don’t speak to anyone in a few days before it is totally ridiculous I can’t make the words go out of my mouth, they get stuck. I also laugh a lot which people interpret as me being a happy, a bit limited person but it is just me feeling weird trying to hide how hard it is for me to pretend to be normal
