I'm super super socially awkward. My mother tells me the reason why I have a hard time having friends is because I'm weird. How, I don't know. In fact, friends need "high social skills" to talk to me because I'm that bad. Apparently, I'm never happy, and I see friends as mentors, like I need advice to solve my problems (so says my mother). Then they give up being my friend because I'm so hard to deal with. Thing is, it doesn't feel that way to me. I don't bring up negative things... I try to talk to friends and get out of my bubble... but maybe she's right. I can see it in much of my friends' eyes, that they are uncomfortable when they talk to me and that some comment they say might offend me. I even have a hard time talking to my own brother, and I go to him more than I go to my parents. He doesn't say a lot to me because he doesn't know what to say. Basically, does anyone know links to articles I can read to be better at talking? Or suggestions, or whatever.. I can't get along with friends, I can't get along with my own family... I can't get along with anyone.
