Good day all! My name is Alex and I’m 26 years old. And, I’m here to tell you all about how you can make friends. What makes me so qualified to give you this advice?
Through many years of my life, I’ve struggled with depression, indecision, shyness, low self-esteem, poor social skills. I lacked any confidence and had no social life. The struggle still continues… even today.
Still though, I reached a point in my life that I can say I have overcome the painful issues that I had about socializing. And, for that, I have collected a significant amount of experience on how to overcome social anxiety, dealing with shyness and better my social skills. I’ve worked out some techniques on how to become more social while staying introverted.
I created this site to share my experience with other introverted persons - male or female!
The idea of the website came to me seven years ago. I wanted information that wouldn’t just provide someone support but also motivate them into action. I didn’t have a lot of real life experiences in the beginning, and I didn’t feel comfortable giving advice to others about this topic.
Of course, things are changed in the last five to eight years. I suffered with panic attacks, dealt with depression and finally overcame them. I was lonely for a long time – no friends, no incoming calls…nothing! I had to recreate my social circle. I was shy and anxious around strangers. However, I improved my communication skills and became a more sociable person. I had no love life for a long time; but, in the end, I got a girlfriend.
Some folks may say that there’s nothing to talk about. For me though, it’s a whole new chapter in my life and a bunch of life lessons that I feel some responsibility to share with other folks who are dealing with the same issues.
Yes, I am not a native English speaker but I present all my articles in this language. While the issues I discuss are universal, the English language is universal, spoken in a significant number of countries around the world. I do hope that my lack of understanding the English language won’t stop you from getting the ideas I’m trying to present.
Some of my articles are written toward men. Some articles have certain tips and steps to become more sociable and less anxious. Some of the articles I write about are viewed as philosophical and spontaneous. Some of the articles I will write about will give you some value; some won’t!
Just keep this in mind: whatever I write will come straight from my heart… all for anybody who wants to listen!
