How can I improve my mannerism watch

    • Thread Starter

    Being born and raised by non English speaking parents in a deprived area surrounded by illiterate friends (chavs)

    I wanna break out of this cycle. I have a brain and mentality which is frowned upon by my family and friends as their all just hopeless. The family just do drugs etc. No hope. I speak like a chav, and I struggle to hold good conversations irl but I am very intellectual. Trying to break out of this group and find new friends has been the hardest thing, because no one wants to associate themselves with me. I have stopped dressing like a chav and doing drugs and grown up and work and study out of the area yet when I open my mouth It just puts everyone off.

    They say you are the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with, I've stopped hanging with a few people who are just plain dossers with no aspirations but still feel no progress. I want to be able to sound and speak clearly and be understood and say things that are interesting and intelligent and always say the right thing but how do I get there???? I feel as though I was meant to be in this poverty hole and will never break out of it if yah get me

    hey buddy it's really heartening to hear your story. i am sure that you are capable of adapting to non-chav life. the speech adjustments will take time but are worth the effort.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
