antisocail without realizing it? - January 6th 2009, 10:34 PM

I think I might be acting anti-socail around my friends without realzing, I often feel "seperated" or "left out" from them but I know they don't really mean anything by it and I never speak up about it

I really suck at bodylanguage so when I was researching, I think I found out that I may be acting anti-socail without realizing it,

so how do I stop?

if you need more info feel free to ask

hey... i understand what you feel... i'm rather antisocial as well. not really meaning it, but simply feel left out most of the time. do you feel this way even with much closer friends? it's hard to keep on a mask all the time. maybe tell yourself, that it's ok to be yourself, and you might be able find people who'd appreciate you for you really are..
take care!



and the voice of truth tells me a different story
the voice of truth says "do not be afraid"

The best way to stop a habit is to identify it, search for solutions to it and then implement those solutions.

What exactly are you doing that is making you believe you are antisocial? Study those behaviours and then try to rectify them. When your friends are around try to immerse yourself in their conversation. Pay attention to what they say and bring it up at later opportunities to show them that you are listening to them.
If you can, invite them to hang out with you, or go do something fun. Try to maintain friendly eye contact with them when they talk to you and keep interested in what they are saying. If you're having trouble with starting conversation there are so many great sites out there that have information on how to start a good conversation.
There is always a chance that they don't think you are antisocial anyway. If you can, try and ask them if they think you are.
