I talk to people more once I get to know them, but initially I am shy and want to hear from other people so that I know I can or cannot trust them. To me this is normal, it's just my personality, the way I adhere to my surroundings. But I feel like people hate me, think bad thoughts of me when I'm with them, and then forget about me afterwards. I like talking on the phone, but there are only a few people who I know wouldn't mind talking to me every couple of days. I am not saying I don't cherish people's friendships, no matter how small they are, because I do. I just don't understand why most people don't open up to me at all, and why it is as if I am invisible.
