So today is going to be more of a chatty one about a part of me that is a big part… no social life.
Now I am in no way looking for sympathy I just don’t want other people to be left how I am now.
Now ever since I dropped out of high school, I would say thats when my non-social life began to exist. I lost contact with all my friends bar a couple but slowly that began to fade to. Being made redundant then into a huge argument with my best friend at the time.
I eventually got a new job, but still didn’t really have any friends. I went out on nights out with work every now and again but that was it for my social life at the time. I spent a lot of time sat at home as that was the only place (apart from work) I felt I had people to talk to.
To be honest I’m a shy girl anyway and then I started to suffer with anxiety, having a fear of people, struggling to make new friends. I eventually met my boyfriend and to be honest he is my world and my only real friend. Don’t get me wrong I go out with him and his friends and sure they are my friends to a certain degree but they’re not friends I’ve known since i was little.
Some people cope with this kind of stuff, some people (like me) don’t. Even now at 21 I still struggle to make friends, people are too quick to judge because I’m so shy and quiet but if they got to know me they would know the real Paige.
Reflecting on my past is hard, but I wanted to share this with you guys, so you guys get to know the real me.
Remember to keep your friends close by!
Have you guys got any experiences similar??
