I have social anxiety, so it’s hard for me to make friends, especially this year, (I made friends with both my friends before).😒

I’m just to anxious but I want the feeling of having lots of friends, I’m naturally a social, very talkative and extroverted person, I need to talk to people but 2 friends aren’t enough. This may sound ungrateful.. but I’ve been friends with 1 of them for like 3 years and the other for about a year. I talk to them all the time... well one of them, the other one doesn’t talk to me daily if I’m not in school, which is fine, I know she is very introverted. But I need different people, more friends. Idk what to do, I have social anxiety so don’t tell me to just get over it and try talk to more people. Doesn’t work like that.

Also I feel embarrassed at school EVERYONE has there huge groups then it’s just me.... I’m often lonely in classes to. 😭

Can I ask why you need more friends? What is it that make you feel the need to get more?

Maybe try to join clubs or societies of things you’re interested in? Then you’d get to meet people with things in common with you. Or find people online to be friends with similar hobbies to you on twitter or insta? Honestly don't sweat it, everyone’s pretty much open to making friends so dont feel embarrassed or overthink too much, good luck! Xx

Trust me it's better to keep your number of friends lower it helps maintain the strength of your relationship and youll just grow rlly close with them like personally
