I feel like I can't socialize even if I go out - November 15th 2012, 01:55 AM

I've been feeling very down lately. I don't know why. I feel like just staying in my room and doing nothing. But I know that this is not good. I know that I need to continue socializing and going out so that this feeling doesn't get worse. But even when I do go out, I just feel like I don't have the energy or the willingness to actually talk (as if I don't care) but this makes the whole situation even worse. Even if I know I should socialize, I just don't have the energy or as if I don't have anything interesting to say. I don't want to feel like a party-pooper. Sometimes, I don't mind being around people just physically and not necessarily talking. I don't mind having them talk and me listening but I can't just sit there all night not even saying a word!
I don't understand why this is happening!!!!!!

Hey there,

I'm sorry to hear that your having a tough time right now. I know how you feel when you don't want to go out and socialize with people. When I stay inside all day I start to feel really low and I struggle to go outside and be around people but when you get into it you may feel much better. I know that it's hard to motivate yourself to go out but it would be good to start trying to go out on a small walk down the bottom of your street or have a walk around in a park twice a day. After doing that a couple of times you may feel more comfortable to start going out for longer and try and increase the amount of time you spend doing something (like a walk) and you'll eventually start going out a lot more often during a day. Maybe you could try asking friends to go out with you or do something with people to start socializing a bit more; have you thought about joining a club or a group which you may enjoy?

Just take small steps and go out for a little while to start off with and you may find that you'll start going out and socializing with others a bit more.

I hope I have been of some help.
Take care,

Lex

I don't have a problem getting myself into social situations. The problem is that when I am around people, I just don't feel like socializing..
But thanks for the reply
