Greetings to all that read this.
I have been bottling this up for a while and I can't keep it up anymore - this is regarding my social life since I was of adolescence, and I would love some advice regarding such.
I will try and keep it brief so that you guys won't get tired of reading it.
Ever since I was born, I never really have integrated well socially with others. Academically, I excelled, but socially I have not really had the best. My parents told me that I fluctuated in and out of nursery and never really had any stability or longevity. Apparently when I went through reception, I played with myself due to others not wanting to affiliate with me for some reason.
When I was in primary school, I was comprehensively isolated, and every attempt to play with anyone was shut down and spat in my face figuratively. I was always sat on the bench alone, and I would always talk to myself which continued all throughout secondary school where I was manipulated into a toxic friendship group due to my vulnerability of never making any friends. I remember a time where I actually thought I deserved being called names and having water chucked at me because I never deserved real friendship.
I have never had an actual time where I have felt relaxed or comfortable in a friendship or being belittled.
Throughout college, things went well in terms of trying to make friends - but these friends were also making fun of me which lead to my natural prophylaxis of self-isolation throughout college. I felt ashamed, and even depressed in some stages and hated any type of social events as I was often left alone or left to envy others enjoying themselves.
Now throughout university, I have yet again struggled to integrate well as the friends I have made are class friends and not actual friends. I envy seeing people going out and enjoying themselves, yet I can't even get invited to any events, or even have anyone to talk to.
I am quite the extrovert who loves to engage in conversation, and I have tried throughout my adolescence to try and make friends - but I keep getting turned down, ridiculed, bullied and shamed.
I am starting to give up on any form of socialisation as I feel throughout the time I have tried to make friends, that I am not worth anything to this world. Literally no one wants to be friends with me.
I plead for any of you to give me advice as I am at my breaking point.
