I have always been extremely shy, but when times were good and I had at least a few friends, I found it so much easier to be more friendly and introduce myself around people.
One aspect of your depression is that you lack self confidence and experience low self esteem even though you are clearly very intelligent and are an excellent student.The second problem is that you are suffering from a social anxiety disorder.But none of them wanted to go out, so I too stayed in our dorm room all the time.Now it is sophmore year, one of those girls transferred, and the other two are in singles. Shes really nice and we get along great but we have virtually nothing in common with each other. I think, "why would anyone want to be friends with someone who has none." People come up to me all the time in the elevator of my dorm or in my classes and I feel like I have nothing to say, and make the simplest situation awkward.I am honestly terrified of talking to people, I will avoid all talking situations at any cost. Yes, I am pleased to say that I have many suggestions.
It appears from what you describe of yourself that you are struggling with two big problems: The first problem is that you experience a lot of depression.
I’m a senior now and am feeling a bit sentimental, so I decided to share my confessions of a commuter with all of you to clear up any questions or misconceptions floating around out there about the life of a commuter. The big decision My initial decision to commute to school was a pretty easy one to make: I live less than a half hour away from my school and it just made sense that I would live at home.
I’d get free housing, free food, I’d stay close to my family, I’d have my own space.
The trouble is that roommates in dorms are rarely satisfying and I hear lots of complaints from myriad numbers of student.
Your hope was to have dorm mates with whom you could go out and socialize but none of them were able to do that. I am fairly certain that you have a health center on campus that includes a counseling center, a psychiatrist to administer medications and counselors with whom you could talk.
Since starting college, I’ve always found it odd that people were fascinated to hear I commute.
