Shud I try socialising? Forget real life, can't even manage it online.

I could never socialise with people, throughout my childhood, I was mostly a loner. When later in life I met interesting people, I couldn't manage to befriend them. Even if I did, it wouldn't last because of anxiety in dealing with them.(Sure most of you familiar with that) I've been very lonely, I too have a need to socialise so I tried it online. I tried many forums especially where I could meet people of similar likes etc. But that too didn't last, I liked it at first but it always ended the same way, I feel people are very harsh to me (However irrational it may seem I just couldn't shake it off my head, and it at times ruined my day) I've come to a consensus that I shouldn't socialise at all, The place where I come, I feel totally out of place there anyway. Any advice? Thank you for reading my long post. Appreciate it.

Participating on this website is a good start! It sounds like it's your perception might be holding you back. I've been having a hard time lately and it seems like no one wants to talk to me or treats me like a child because of my issues, but really they are just busy doing everyday things and they are worried about me. It's easy to fall down that hole. Also you have to know that you are good enough and your thoughts are valuable. Many people will pass through your life and hardly stick, so you just have to let people in and not have any expectations :)
