    I have no friends as a result of being shy socially. What can I do? I am too anxious about joining clubs. I'm 16.

    That's a tough one. Perhaps trying making some convo with someone friendly and not shy. Being around them may cause you too come out of your shell gradually!

    OK yeah Thanks! Next time I'm somewhere such as school I see if there's anyone sitting alone and try and talk to them.

    Yeah I probably should but can’t deal with making an appointment and I don’t want to tell my mam 😂

    I'm exactly the same. Im trying to become more confident by saying hello to people as I pass in the hallway. Its a small step but usually some form of conversation comes from it. Its important for me because I usually never initiate conversations. Maybe this will help if you try it?
