Help! I'm Socially Awkward!

Sunday, November 10, 2013

Being socially awkward is something I've been battling with for most of my life. It got to a point where I felt like I can't seem to communicate with most people I meet anymore and then I'll just slink into a silent corner waiting for the night to end. 

Yes there are tons of "7 Ways to Deal With Social Awkwardness" articles available online. The advice these authors give do help, but every so often I'll find myself trapped in another socially stressful situation where I'll feel helpless and shitty again. It was damaging my self-esteem and I kept wondering if maybe I was just not meant to be in this world. 

But God makes no mistake 
and He created us just as we are

Realising this fact liberated me from my fears. I realised that it's okay to be socially awkward, to say things people find "weird", that's just who I am. This helped me to find inner peace through awkward social situations. I felt so much happier after when I met people who liked me for my weird self rather than the front I was trying so hard to put up. 

So, if you like me, are battling with social awkwardness, I just hope that this post will help you find inner peace within you. If people shun you or put you down, that just means that they're not the right friends for you. Wouldn't it be very tiring if you have to constantly try to "fit in" in order for your friend to like you? :)

I was inspired to write this post after listening to Mariah Carey's Can't Take That Away ( I don't know why I've never heard of this song sooner?! )
