Unfortunately, it looks like I will follow the footsteps of my father and shy away from everyone. I currently feel very uncomfortable hanging out with new people. I have lost pretty much lost all of my friends since high school, and the one kid that is left is a weirdo which I have grow to dislike. I can't see myself making new friends. Not many of the guys and almost none of the girls even know who I am or a thing about me. I probably don't seem very shy when i'm with people, I probably come off more as an insecure person. Inside, I am shy and it is very hard to overcome. I feel very oblivious to the things that people my age are doing. I don't know what people do? What are their conversations about? Anything? I've had very little social interaction with people since first year of high school. I am now 19 and I feel like I am missing out on life. I don't do much, and the things I used to do are driving me crazy because I am only pretending I like them to fill the void in my life.
