speaking is tiring. When i talk people they don't back, when they talk i don't know how to respond. I can't tell if someone is waving or giving a high five. its either 'your so quiet' or 'shut up'. It frustrating and i just need some tips.

Maybe your problem is that your conversations don't flow, that what you talk about no one else is interested in, or that it's not an appropriate topic to talk about at the time

(im sorry if you cant read this btw) i know but its just like when i say a simple 'hello' and they don't respond. it makes me feel insecure a bit like they dont want to be near. or when i say 'hi' they'd be like 'oof'

People are often so busy that they’re not really focused on you. I have social anxiety, so I can relate. I read into every little thing, but most of time I’m just being overly sensitive.

Do you have one friend you feel comfortable with? I think the key is just practice. The more you do it, the easier it will become. You’re definitely not alone in finding social situations draining. Just don’t be too hard on yourself.
