I am just really bad at small talk when i am one on one with a person, i can't start a conversation, and my stomach always turns whenever a person yells at me. I can't take constructive criticism well and i work better when i am on my own. I just find it really hard when i am around people, i am just not a people person, I don't know whats wrong with me but everybody seems to take what i say the wrong way and i don't understand why? I try my best to change but when ever i try to be someone i am not it just complicates things more. :)


To me it sounds like you have social anxiety which I have too, because I am exactly the same way.. and i was like you for a few years not doing anything and staying at home, but I was looking to either study or find work and last year I did, I now work part time sorting out clothes, nothing special but it's a job and it's a stepping stone.


I'm not a shy guy, i did work at a petrol station but i felt depressed after two years, and i find it easy to communicate with women, but find it very hard to communicate and keep eye contact when a man comes near me, I guess it had something to do with me going to an all boys school and being sexually assulted three times by two guys when i was at school, and being bullied for the way i look, sing and my personality. I guess my fear also comes from being threatened by my uncle if i turn out a particular way he'd kill me and my dad would kick me out of home. I don't want to disappoint anyone especially my family.

I never said you were shy, I said social anxiety. There's a difference.
and yes I know you've told everyone on the forum about your life and experiences, which i'm sure do play a part in it.

I suffer from severe anxiety, depression, bipolar 2, intracranial hypertension (pressure on the brain), swollen intestines plus other swollen organs in my body, a failing liver and a weak immune system, so I'm currently not working and I'm on the pension. I pray for the day I am better and not in pain and spending most of my time in hospital or at the doctors, so I can become a pre school worker. I'm a qualified cook and used to work in a restaurant.

I really hope you get better really soon.



I am a teacher :) just finished my training year and about to start a full time job!

I'm a student and work part-time as a counsellor and on an IT helpdesk. (very odd combination, I know!) I'm hoping one day to become a psychologist but it's such a long road to get there!

Well about a month ago I was a student. But I am currently unemployed because I'm waiting to have surgery before I can work. Hopefully when I do start work I can afford to be a student again next year. :)

I suffer from major depression and anxiety so I can relate to part of what you are going through, it's horrible.
I pray that you get better soon! Thinking of you! :)

I don't see anything wrong with being a counsellor and working part time in an helpdesk enviorment, I think that can be a good thing at times.

I don't think there's anything wrong with it, but other people seem to think there is..? Mind you, they're mostly my old fashioned relatives

I did a diploma in Media two years ago and I've been working at a radio station a little over a year :) I do a classical music show for two hours and last year was also co hosting the drive home shows plus being weather and traffic girl haha. I also do email readings, people send me a few questions (about anything in life) and I reply with what I feel.

I'm studying to become a teacher for English, German and Art in my 7th semester :) Once I've finished my degree, I plan on going abroad to work as a language assistant at an English-speaking school or university. I don't actually want to become a teacher my home country because I strongly dislike the German school system. So I'll see what I'll do when the time has come to decide :)

Just graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Sociology, and was going to go for a Master's in Social Work and happened to find a position doing exactly what I wanted! A social worker/counselor/case worker with people with various mental disabilities. Both exhausting and fulfilling, enjoying it so far though!

I work in retention for Foxtel...so when people call up to disconnect I have to talk them into keeping their account, it is a draaaaainerrr. <_<

I've also worked in 2 gay bars as a bartender, and in numerous call centres jobs and a phone shop.

Fun fact: when I worked in a call Centre for Optus Lea Goodrem called through and I was like 'it's Jesse, I come to the instores with my Mum...we drive up from Shepparton' and she was all 'Ohhh how are you, how's your Mum?' and started telling me a little about Delta's new album (which was just before the Delta album came out)...Lea's so lovely. Probably the only good thing to happen at that job.

I have SO MUCH admiration for anybody willing to do that sort of work. It's tough, it's almost always a learning experience and it's great to affect peoples lives (As I have seen as person who borderline works with disabled people/is a disabled person but a smart ass/frequents places of this nature for about three years now)

I want to do that, spreading music is always fun!

Yeah, it's a tough job but someone's gotta do it! I love it though, can't see myself doing anything else with my life. Too bad it's non-profit and I won't make any income if I keep doing it lol, saving up to go back for my master's though :)

I really really really really hope and pray that you find yourself in good health soon.


I just graduated from college with a degree in media studies and journalism. I turned down a seemingly good journalism job at home in Pakistan to go back to the college I graduated from to work as an Alumni Relations and Communications person for a year. It's probably just an indirect stepping stone to what I want to do eventually but I felt I needed to contribute to the college somehow, and also I wanted to go back to America... largely for reasons of not 'fitting' into the social structures in Pakistan. That sounds harsher than it is, but at this time, it just felt right.

A recently graduate Primary Teacher. Starting work soon! :)

I'm studying to become a teacher for English, German and Art in my 7th semester :) Once I've finished my degree, I plan on going abroad to work as a language assistant at an English-speaking school or university. I don't actually want to become a teacher my home country because I strongly dislike the German school system. So I'll see what I'll do when the time has come to decide :)


Haha, I'm a teacher and have a few German friends who are also teachers that I met while on exchange in Canada. Naturally we discussed the schooling system differences and they don't like it either, and I can see why. It's all pretty much streaming isn't it?
