I have always been very shy and reserved. When I am around people I know and trust, I feel more comfortable and less shy - I can be myself and social. However, there are a few people in my life who really make me feel like I am an outsider when I am around them. No matter what I say or do, I feel judged. As a result, when I am around them, I tend not to say too much and come across as being really un-social and negative. I have tried to put myself out there several times, but it has never helped. I really hate how these people make me feel...!
