Hi all, It's been a long time since I've posted here and things have been getting better. I'm getting better at staying less nervous and have been doing mediation and other practices. I just wanted to ask you guys any tips for social awkwardness. I know the only way is to be around people more, but it's hard. I want to know if my awkwardness is permanent and the best ways to improve it. I don't need to be a social genius I just want to be able to get through a day without feeling as if I want to.collapse. I'm a freshman in high school and I didn't have this consciousness before. I want to get better desperately. Life doesn't wait for you but I also know that patience is important to get better. Please give advice.
