I was just trying to figure out how my life changed so much - I used to be such a happy, outgoing person and now I'm shy and awkward and nervous and have no friends. There are things - little things to others but huge to me - that stand out as incidents. What are yours? Mine: - High school geography trip, I was left out all day. At lunch I went to sit next to two girls I knew from class - they looked at each other, stood up, and walked away. - The first job I had I tried to make conversation with a girl my age - she looked at someone else and laughed. - I was walking home from college with a male friend - we walked past a guy, my friend must have glanced at him because the guy laughed "Don't worry, I'm not looking at your bird, mate." - When I got my first boyfriend in highschool, a mutual 'friend' said to me "He can't really do any better than you." People are just f*****g cruel.
