Hello everyone! I'm kind of new to posting on forums and stuff like that so bare with me. I've kind of had a lot on my mind as of late that I just need help making sense of. Rarely do I ever offer much in the way of self-expression a lot of the time since I've always been extremely introverted and I don't find myself relating all that much to others anyway. What it all comes down to is that I've some self-esteem issues for a number of years now, yet I see no reason to remedy that by socializing because most people don't seem to care anyway, at least as much as I sometimes do for others. This extends into my love life, or lack thereof, given my own lack of self-confidence. I like to think I'm good at socializing in every other way but vocally, however I tend to come across to the opposite sex as being "creepy" I guess, even though I'm nothing of the sort. This all leads to me feeling as though I'm kind of worth nothing, then comes a bit of depression. I guess I need to find an excuse or two to love myself before I extend that love onto others. I don't know, that's as best as I can rationalize how I'm feeling right now. Sorry for the long post! I'm sure everyone's heard this all before. Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.
