As an introvert I enjoy spending time on my own, but it has come to the point that I prefer it to being with people. Teamed up with somewhat of a social anxiety and self-consciousness, I keep spending more and more time alone.
This is where the problem arrives. I often feel lonely and as if Im missing out on my teenage years, hence they are supposed to be the peak of your life.
Im stuck between two worlds, unhappy and needing change. Help!
Im a 16 year old female . I went through a huge relationship change recently in terms of basically changing all my friends. This helped me realise that I am not really close to anyone, and I dont get close easily.
Should I attempt to go out, meet more people? The people that Im friends with I feel dont fulfill my life so I doubt more would.
Should I just accept that I need to become more open or ignore the need to conform?
