you really don't care for introverts, do you?


There's a fine line between being introverted and lack of manners. I was once introverted myself however my parents taught me to speak when entering a room and when being spoken to that superseded my introverted-ness.

I'm not a natural by a long shot. One Summer I forced myself to do some day time holla sessions.
It was tough but it helped. Its all about treating it like a performance until you become more comfortable.

I'm still mad awkward … and this is from somebody who goes on stage to do open mics sometimes too.
yeah.... I just saw a short vid about social anxiety  so im trying to develop good habits.

b/c chile I really do not give sh*t about about these people

but I do it because I have to

making small talk outside of work does feel like a chore

there are few people that I actually like talking to and hearing their opinion

I know you have to get through the small talk and eventually get to know a person better and then develop a relationship but honestly it seems like a lot of work when I already have people in my life that I like being around
you  been hating your job for awhile. I really hope you find something that stimulates your intellect and makes use of your skills because you should  definitely feel more useful.

this.. 


although idk if id use the word awkward for me.. i used to be.  

i used to try to come up with a fake laugh.. cus it would be awkward when a person makes a lil joke or something then i just smirk.. i can't make myself do one of those polite chuckles or giggles.. it just sounds real phony. 
i gave up on that long ago.. i can only fake it if i really care. 
9/10 i dont.
